Step Into Your Moxie
Amplify Your Voice, Visibility, and Influence in the World
The word moxie has become synonymous with vigor, verve, pep, courage, nerve, aggressiveness, skill, and know-how, and Step into Your Moxie: Amplify Your Voice, Visibility, and Influence in the World by speaking and leadership coach Alexia Vernon presents a soul-stirring call to action for women to speak up for themselves and the ideas and issues that matter most to them.
“I love the word moxie because it suggests a way of thinking, a way of feeling, and a way of behaving that activates speaking up and disrupting the status quo,” writes Alexia. “This is what Step into Your Moxie is all about - amplifying your voice, visibility, and influence in the world - even if, especially if, you have previously struggled to do so in your work, your community, and your personal life. My desire, during our journey together, is for you to discover, and never forget, that you can walk into any room, or onto any stage, and speak with moxie - and inspire other people to do the same.”
Wise, witty, and with just the right amount of woo, Step into Your Moxie is a book women want by their side as they have that daring conversation, give an important presentation, run for office, or tell the people closest to them to step back from those boundaries they’ve just trespassed. Whether they are at the start of their careers, messily shuffling between work and motherhood, or established leaders looking to mentor other women, Step into Your Moxie is a refreshingly playful self-help book that has the power to make women laugh, quite possibly make them cry, and above all, help them speak with unshakable presence and undeniable impact so they can create the legacy they were born to make.
“This wacky, wonderful world we live in - it needs your voice. It needs your wisdom. And your wit,” writes Alexia. “So while I get that you will likely need to navigate some external, real-world limitations, and some self-imposed ones, to stepping into your moxie, let’s get to making moxie a lifelong habit.”
