“I have the privilege of knowing a number of the contributors to the Overcoming Mediocrity anthology in real life. Some of them are fellow members in one of our area's chambers of commerce. So when I saw Christie Ruffino's notice that she was putting this book together, I was definitely anxious to read it.
One of the characteristics that unites many of the contributors is that their path from mediocrity to magnificence begins when going through a personal crisis, be it with health, finances, relationships, family or career. But taking Winston Churchill's advice of "When you're going through hell, keep going," these ladies kept on their path by being open to new opportunities and perspectives. Definitely have a renewed appreciation for the contributors I do know. I think women who are facing huge challenges will be encouraged by many of the stores.”

“This is a must read for men and women alike, young or old! After having the pleasure of meeting one of the contributors, I ordered the book online the same day! I so enjoyed reading and learning from all of the amazing women in the book that I ordered two books for women in my personal life that had a profound impact on me- my mom and mother-in-law. I can't wait for another edition of this to be published!”
