Talk of the Town Tuesdays: "Unstoppable in Stilettos" by Lauren Ruotolo

Photo Credit:
This week I came across an author whose life story is truly incredible and quite motivational.  Diagnosed with McCune-Albright syndrome, a very rare genetic disease, Lauren Ruotolo has done what was said to be the impossible-walking!  And in stilettos no less!!  Predicted to be confined to a wheelchair, Ruotolo stands a proud 4'2 (plus a few inches in her heels) overcoming the odds against her.

In her book, Unstoppable in Stilettos, Ruotolo shares with us several "lessons" that has helped her to obtain her success and wisdom as the the director of entertainment promotions at Hearst Magazines in New York City.  These "lessons" can be applied to everyday life situations and include:
  • Navigating social pressures
  • Avoiding the label game
  • Overcoming insecurities
  • Combating career confusion
  • Turning rejection and obstacles into triumph
  • Dealing with toxic people
  • Discovering true self-expression
  • and much more....
For more information about the book and/or the author, please visit: amazon.com or http://www.laurenruotolo.com/.  Enjoy!
