Shifting into High Gear

Is high gear attainable for today’s women and the next generation of women? What exactly defines high gear? A seat at a board of governance? The C-suite? Financial independence? Starting a business? Yes!

Entrepreneurs and small business owners Anne Deeter Gallaher and Amy D. Howell join forces in Women in High Gear to tell their stories of two divergent paths to reach the same goal. The prescription for high gear is not limited to BA, MBA, Wall Street, Board Seat. In fact, the engine and backbone of the U.S. economy is small business—smart, innovative people of every age who are contributing to their own economies, their community’s well-being, and creating jobs.

In these 13 chapters, Anne and Amy lay out their own journeys to high gear and how others can continue to connect the dots for growth and success. They combine big business principles with small business DNA and desire that their experiences
will shorten the learning curves of women—and men.

Whether you’re new to the workforce, mid-career, on-ramper, or aspiring executive, we challenge you to charge ahead with confidence. High gear awaits!
