Growing up as a nice, middle-class girl, the lure of Wall Street was an aphrodisiac for Natasha . . . maybe more like love at first sight. Fresh out of college, Natasha said "I do," put on her new maroon necktie and headed off to Wall Street.
Filled with big dreams and unbridled ambition, Natasha was not about to let anything stop her, especially any little glass ceiling. When times got tough, Natasha worked harder, convinced that if she stayed faithful to Wall Street, Wall Street would stay faithful to her. After all, they say "love is blind" for a reason.
After more than two decades of unrequited devotion, Natasha and Wall Street got a divorce. Going Public: Wall Street Through the Eyes of a Woman is the tale of a woman brave enough to enter the male domain of Wall Street. So put on your helmet, and enjoy the ride!
Own Your Shift, co-authored with my 2WallStreetChicks business partner, Mayra Matinez-Sacco, is about transforming daily lives using mindfulness practices. As two women who spent decades on Wall Street, we know a thing or two about surviving and thriving through life’s challenges. Mindfulness is the way. It turns off autopilot, so you’re not stuck in the past or on edge about the future. It’s about being present, and what we call BE.HERE.NOW.
Our title is a play on words. Own means it’s your choice and Shift is what happens when you move from overwhelm to calm. The 2WallStreetChicks are different; we don’t subscribe to a particular fixed method, nor do we prescribe which techniques to use. YOU pick and choose which techniques help create YOUR OWN shift.
Purchase Own Your Shift with its Toolkit, and use both as a resource to help you shift from overwhelm to a mindful presence. Being present brings out your best self so you make smarter and more deliberate decisions to achieve healthier outcomes. Are you ready?
