Dear Class of 2020 Graduate and friends,
Even though we’ve never met, your graduation is close to my heart because we have something in common...
In 1987, I graduated from college in one of the worst economies the U.S. had ever seen. Sound familiar?
2020 is shaping up to be tougher for new graduates entering the workforce than ever before, especially if you’re a woman.
That’s because new research shows that the COVID-19 global pandemic has been especially hard on working women.
Women accounted for nearly 60% of job losses in March in the U.S.
Meanwhile, women are doing more of the extra domestic work from COVID-19.
So, in more ways than one, we have the weight of the world on our shoulders.
That’s why I’d like to offer you a special gift. It’s a book I co-wrote with some of the smartest and most successful women I know.
“Why Didn’t Anybody Tell Me This Sh*t Before?” is a collection of heartfelt letters written by women to their younger selves.
These women run the gamut — they’re leaders of multi-million dollar companies, ‘solopreneurs,’ and freelancers just starting out.
Their letters allow each of them to share the truth of her experience and her hard-won wisdom, battle scars and all.
With accounts ranging from being the only woman in ‘old boys’ club’ businesses, to making impossible choices between cherished work and family, to dealing with loss, anger and fear, these letters have hard-earned lessons to teach all of us.
Some letters are raw and shocking, while others are funny and uplifting. Yet every letter contains a multi-faceted lesson that will empower and inspire you, no matter your age, or your experience.
Here’s what successful copywriter and business consultant, Lorrie Morgan, said about the book:
“Why Didn’t Anybody Tell Me This Sh*t Before?” is collective mentorship you won’t find anywhere else. The lessons each woman shares here create a lifeline and a roadmap, particularly if you are a woman in entrepreneurship and business.
They show you that you’re not alone, that someone has faced similar trials and prevailed, and that laughter and learning can come out of even the most challenging situations.
And most importantly… that hope, triumph, and joy are waiting for you, too.
Another Amazon reader shared:
This book sells on Amazon for $19.39, but you can get a FREE PDF copy of the book here, as a graduation gift.
There’s no catch.
There’s nothing for sale.
This is a gift from one woman to another, in hopes that you’ll feel inspired, supported, and loved during this challenging time.
When you sign up, you will also get the same valuable gifts that women got, when I launched this book at full price.
Again, these gifts were all created by successful businesswomen who want to pay it forward to the next generation.
And they’re 100% free for you.

About Marcella Allison
Out of sheer determination and refusal to quit, I became a female entrepreneur long before it was fashionable, including being the only breastfeeding venture capitalist at my investment firm.
I have learned to adapt and even thrive in all-male business settings, including being one of eight women in my MBA class. And I’ve sold over $100 million in products online and through the mail in the male-dominated copywriting and advertising industries.
But the truth is, it was my fellow women who got me through it all. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to support women and help them build their businesses and careers with a womens-only network, called the Titanides. To learn more, visit www.titanides.com
