Born out of her popular website Beyond Mom, Randi’s book is a guide for mothers looking to jump-start their business ideas by finding connection from within. The 1.2 million women in America each year who choose not to return to traditional work after having children have found themselves filled with an unexpected creative energy, but lack the knowledge and network to tap it. With the support of the Beyond Mom community behind you, Randi provides the guidance and the tools women need to find their strength, body, and mind, thus laying the integral foundation to bring entrepreneurial ideas to fruition. Her distinct approach is as practically accessible as it is holistic—a former yoga teacher who also possesses a decade of experience as an acting CEO, she knows that personal well-being is critically connected to any thriving business venture. Because the first step to personal wellness and idea growth begins with you. In addition, each chapter features an interview from the Beyond Mom network of celebrity moms, successful businesswomen, and clients, like bestselling author and coach Alexandra Jamieson, renowned psychotherapist Terri Cole, IntenSati founder Patricia Moreno, and author/anthropologist Wednesday Martin, just to name a few. Honest, smart, and relatable, Randi provides wisdom and encouragement to build entrepreneurs (who are also moms) from deep within!

So, for centuries your people have worked as farmers and hunters, knowing the future would roll down to the end days prophecied by the Mayan culture like a run-away freight train? Sue asked. Yes, it is true, Frank replied. We didnt have much choice, we had to keep body and soul together until the end days. We rocked along for centuries working in the fields and hunting. We domesticated fowl, eating their meat and eggs. We were all small communities and lived in simple dwellings that were relatively easy to repair. If we suffered natural disasters like earthquakes and tornadoes that destroyed our homes, we cleared away the rubble and started over. Then we came up on the twentieth century and everything got different. We went through a surge of creating new inventions. We learned to fly and made electricity, toilets that flushed, fancy cell phones and the internet. Suddenly there wasnt anything happening on the planet we didnt know about. Weve become complacent now, and a hundred years after the inventions came, our fancy inventions are beginning to crumble. We got so we depended on the economy. The monetary system took over. Men became greedy and pulled and tugged at the proceeds from Wall Street until it all began to unravel. They created bigger and better weapons not where you had your enemy in your sights, but you could take out whole cities at a time. The Hopi tell in their prophecies of villages in metal and glass canyons, where a man could walk all day and never see the horizon. One day someone would push a button and where a city had been there would just be steam. The people would have no choice but to just walk away if they survived. We are getting to be like the Olmecs and Mayans and Aztecs who couldnt feed their people because their population and their cities got too big, and they had to abandon them. Its not impossible New York could become an abandoned city. It could happen. They could just walk away. In the twentieth century, for the first time skirmishes became world wars. The young men left the land their forefathers defended and went to lose their blood and their lives defending someone elses land. One day soon we will lose all our fancy toys to the end of the age of electricity and technology and succumb to sunspots that will devastate communications. Our forefathers never knew sunspots existed.

Now, 25 years into our country's most recent "women's movement" for equality, it is appropriate to reexamine the social and cultural experiences of women. Thanks to the media, researchers, clinicians, and the general public, all are aware that women have been unable to realize many of their goals. At times, distress rather than satisfaction and rejection and disap pointment rather than contentment have been the result of the ongoing struggle of women to achieve change-the change in attitudes, behavior, and values necessary to broaden the personal choices and work options open to women. Nationally recognized authorities on several of the sociocultural issues addressed in this volume, the editors invited noted scholars and clinicians to study some of those issues particularly relevant to women. These include frequently neglected topics, such as the multiplicity of responsibilities of single women and the spectrum of mothering roles, and those more commonly discussed, such as the various roles and patterns in the family, work options and burdens, and interpersonal relationships. The volume provides insightful detail on two prominent and poignant problems of the 1980s-the causes and repercussions of homelessness and sexual life-styles. Such material may facilitate under standing and serve as a catalyst for positive action.
