The Bond Girl Metaphor

Let’s face it. James Bond, net/net, is a government employee! The Bond Girls from the ever-popular James Bond movies and Ian Fleming novels live in the exotic locales that Bond merely drops into (on a government expense account, no less). They run their own businesses, live awesome lives, and often resourcefully help Bond get out of a jam. They are ordinary women rising to meet extraordinary circumstances. fEmpowerment coaching will help coax out your inner Bond Grrl. By changing your life for the better, the world will change for the better. And that’s our mission: To build a better world… one Bond Grrl at a time.

What did you “discover” or “uncover” through fEmpowerment seminar(s) or reading the book?

I don’t have to apologize for being a woman. I was repressing my sexuality and this book helped me see that I was holding back and helped me to celebrate my femininity. I am a happy successful executive, but felt something missing. I learned that I was repressing my inner goddess. Unleashing her was life altering. I am happier, more confident, have more energy to give to my family. My hips swivel when I walk. I feel feminine.
