These began as a little collection of mentoring letters that made a huge impact on the Titanides community. It expanded into a project to include many more successful women and to take it to a much bigger audience by creating a book. These letters — 67 in total — cover an extraordinary range. Some letters are raw and shocking, others are funny and uplifting. Their wisdom and lessons twine together to show each reader that they are not alone, that someone has faced similar trials and prevailed, and that good can come out of even the most challenging situations. Here you can see some of these brave and inspiring women who shared part of their story, reading their letters at the 2017 Titanides Conference, held in Delray Beach, FL.
