Far from the "Hi, Barbara this is Shirely." (intro song to Woman to Woman by Shirley Brown). This is a fresh kind of women's empowerment. I describe this book as the "I am my sisters keeper" guide. This is a ledger of affirmations, confirmations, and a motivational resource for women of every age. Navigating through personal and professional life is challenging - this book can be your GPS. The author Dr. Cierrah Perrin a highly accomplished 30 year old college professor and Principal Business Architect used her social media influence to publicize her new venture. She is not Socialite, Baller Bae or IG model nor does she have millions of followers. Nevertheless, her educational and professional accolades paired with a killer wardrobe created an influential persona. So much so that she would receive several direct messages daily asking for advice, encouragement, or just a note to share how much of an inspiration she was. This was the motivation which would encourage Cierrah to write Woman to Woman: Straight to the point.
I have known the author whom I address as Dr. Ce or Ce for about a year. I too was intrigued as I followed her Instagram's fashion inspirations. I quickly realized she was much more than clothes and shoes. We became familiar during the time she was prepping for her Doctorial graduation. I wondered what drove this already educated woman to push to the next level and take life so seriously, so soon. When I asked, she said and I quote "P, I can't die ignorant and broke." What a heavy statement, I thought. However, I believe she can rest assured that she doesn't need to worry about either.
Her handle on Instagram @she_vs_her is really the professional vs the homegirl. Although she is a highly successful professional she is not corporate uptight or a "geek" at all LOL. She is super chill and knows how to take the work hats off and just be Ce. Dr. Ce also doesn't look like your typical professor. Clad in luxury apparel, jewelry, and cars she offers her audience the proof ... education does pay! In a world of fast cash and quick come-ups. She gives a more positive view of what education can do. It's not just stressing over loans or wasting time in class while everyone else seems to be living it up. Sacrifice now and reap the long term benefits and achievements that will live longer than the latest trend and a temporary lifestyle.
Dr.Ce was an attendee at our "It" Girl Brunch. It was an amazing time spent with positive woman. Egos were checked and authenticity in the air. We chatted intimately about how the vibe of the Brunch was one of her inspirations in writing Woman to Woman: Straight to the Point. She explained." It Girl Brunches personifies the unity of women in a non-judgemental capacity where "being you" is welcomed. This directly relates to the ideology of Woman to Woman: Straight to the Point. There are commonalities amongst all women - once barriers are removed and we are all coexisting in our truths." Dr. Ce sold out of her first run of the book in less than a month. Woman to Woman: Straight to the Point is highly recommended and is our first official book club read for our "It" Girls Read Too Campaign.
