“I want women to know that you don’t have to give up your life, your time or your relationships to be successful.”
– Vickie Milazzo
Houston Author and Entrepreneur Reaches Wicked Success on
The New York Times Bestseller List
Vickie Milazzo, owner and CEO of the Vickie Milazzo Institute, reached #6 on The New York Times Bestseller List this week with her new book, Wicked Success Is Inside Every Woman.
HOUSTON, October 4, 2011 – Houston resident Vickie Milazzo’s latest book, Wicked Success Is Inside Every Woman, has reached the #6 spot on The New York Times Bestseller List. The book’s own wicked success backs up the great advice its author provides.
In the book, Milazzo, the owner and CEO of a multimillion-dollar company, shares intimate secrets of her successes and setbacks on the road to building a thriving business. She reveals how the guiding principles of her own life and business can help women everywhere achieve their dreams.
A self-proclaimed “buck-up kind of woman,” she doesn’t offer empty promises like four-hour workweeks and miracle diets. Instead she helps women develop a realistic life plan, based on her 5 Promises and the 10 Feminine Forces all women possess, that will lead them to wicked success.
“Recent years have seen drastic changes for women,” says Milazzo, who also wrote the Wall Street Journal bestseller Inside Every Woman: Using the 10 Strengths You Didn’t Know You Had to Get the Career and Life You Want Now. “Today, many are still climbing out of a hole created by the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. Middle-aged women are supporting not just themselves, but their parents and their ‘returned-to-the-nest’ children. Young women, financially challenged to break out from under mom and dad, are struggling in jobs (if they can find them) that don’t cover life’s necessities.”
“That’s why I called this book Wicked Success Is Inside Every Woman,” she adds. “These exaggerated times call for a wicked mindset. To get out of survival mode and into success mode you have to embrace a new, wickedly resourceful mind.”
The book teaches readers how to:
- Keep up and survive in a world that is getting smaller, faster, and flatter every second of every day
- Deal with the distractions of our age – game apps, Facebook, Twitter, and texting that compete with your ability to accomplish Big Things
- Tap into your intuitive intelligence and let it lead you through the chaos
- Break free of traps like fear, perfectionism, and the feel-good addiction so you can focus on the Big Things
- Leverage others who are already wickedly successful
- Become the CEO of your career and life
- And much, much more
With Wicked Success Is Inside Every Woman, Milazzo continues living one of her passions by sharing with women and organizations her no-nonsense philosophy on how to reach wicked success.
“There are too many messages out there telling women what’s wrong with them,” notes Milazzo. “That’s why I wanted to write a book about what’s right with us. I want women to know that you don’t have to give up your life, your time or your relationships to be successful. Make the 5 Promises and harness the 10 Strengths I’ve used myself for 29 years, and you will have more life, more time and more satisfying relationships.”
