NEW BOOK, “EMBRACING AUTUMN,” AIMS TO INSPIRE MIDLIFE WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS
Wilmington entrepreneur, community leader and educator Donna Duffy has released a book entitled, “Embracing Autumn: A Motivational Field Guide for Midlife Women Entrepreneurs.” The book encourages women past the age of 50 to continue to pursue their dreams and even begin new careers despite societal pressures to put one’s self out to pasture.
Recently named “Business Woman of the Year” by the new Castle County Chamber of Commerce, Duffy believes women in midlife are in the best stage of their lives, having the ability to make a powerful impact on the world as leaders, entrepreneurs and individuals who continue to reinvent themselves with purpose and passion.
“At midlife, women have a phenomenal opportunity to connect with themselves in a way they’ve not been able until now,” Duffy says. “Many women in their 50s carry a lot of fear and self-doubt, because they were conditioned to put others first. My book is a message that their adventures are only just beginning.”
Duffy is founder and CEO of 3E Marketing Solutions, a Wilmington, Del. based boutique marketing agency that provides affordable marketing strategies, educational workshops and solutions to entrepreneurs and small business owners. She is president of the Delaware Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners and has received the Master Coach Seasons of Change Certification, which equips her to counsel women who are wrestling with critical career decisions or are craving more meaning in their lives.
“I’m astounded at times to see even the most accomplished women struggle with self-esteem issues or who feel as though they’ve run out of time,” says Duffy. “We all feel that way sometimes, and I am dedicated to helping midlife women get up again and push on. When we are okay within ourselves, there is a calm and peace that descends upon us.”
“Embracing Autumn” is available in a variety of formats at Amazon.com. The paperback retails at $14.99. For additional information, visit www.embracingautumn.com.
