Amplifying the Voices of Women Through Authorship
While women are represented in books like those on diversity and confidence, few women are seen as authorities in the leadership space. Sophie Devonshire was determined to add at least one more name to that list of published female authors with business-minded books, and she used that desire to finish Superfast: Lead at Speed. Sophie is the CEO of Caffeine Partnership, a firm that helps clients deliver their vision with high-energy, high-impact consulting. As an experienced leader and brand specialist fascinated by speeding up success, she wrote Superfast as a response to the excitement and exhaustion people are feeling with the ever-accelerating rate of business and technology advancement. She joins Lucy in this episode to share how she took her business book from concept to publication, how it’s impacted the Caffeine Partnership, and how it’s helped skyrocket her own credibility. Tune in to hear how we can all work to amplify the voices of women by being loud about what we bring to the table. “I believe that women need to have a voice about business.

Using Your Personal Experience to Shape Your Business Book
There tends to be a misconception that business books must be cold, instructional devices rather than engaging and inspiring guides. When writing her business book, however, Emily Macpherson abandoned complex jargon in favor of clarity, practicality, and encouragement for her readers. Emily is the founder of Find Peace of Mind, a financial planning firm, and author of Retirement Compass: Personal Finance for the Life You Desire. Her business was created as a result of her own poor interaction with a financial advisor, and her efforts to expand on traditional methodologies by helping clients see their lives holistically is a thread woven throughout her book. She joins Lucy in this episode to explain why she took this approach to authorship, how she buckled down to write, and how her experiences continue to shape her professional work. “It was a challenge to write the book, but… I did that and it’s my physical evidence that I can rise to the challenge and I’ve got something positive to give.” -Emily Macpherson   Love the Podcast?
