YOU ARE ENOUGH! Now Available!
From renowned businesswoman and communications visionary Charlene Wheeless comes an inspiring memoir about facing life’s struggles with unrelenting courage and strength. Part memoir, part motivational guide, and a clear roadmap for thriving in career and in life, YOU ARE ENOUGH! draws from Wheeless’s experiences climbing the corporate ladder and battling breast cancer to illustrate life lessons for others. Personal recollections are used to demonstrate that Black women have to contend with a glass ceiling and a concrete wall that makes it impossible even to see what lies on the other side, much less determine how to get there. While acknowledging that there's no single path around that wall, Wheeless shares advice on how she navigated the route herself. For Wheeless, this means busting up stereotypes, breaking down barriers, and flat-out refusing to be ignored, pigeonholed, or forgotten.
While YOU ARE ENOUGH! chronicles Charlene's fearless quest to be the best possible version of herself in every aspect of her life; her story is everyone's story regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. With raw honesty, blazing courage, and solution-driven sensibility, Charlene reminds us that we are enough!
"All those executives reading Isabel Wilkerson and Robin DiAngelo who are trying to understand why their black employees are so angry now need to add Charlene Wheeless to their bedside tables. Charlene is a “first Black woman to,” many times over. And while she isn’t a whiner and has no regrets, she offers a view of corporate America that will open your eyes. The fact that she had to confront cancer, as well, only adds to this mini-memoir’s power.” --Alan Murray, CEO Fortune Magazine
