VOICES OF THE 21ST CENTURY
50 extraordinary women come together to celebrate a new era. Women who have channeled their passion into a mission to make a difference. Within these pages, you'll discover powerful female voices rising up to educate, guide, and inspire. Behind each story is a woman bold and brave enough to have her voice be heard.
The Art of Connection book has become a global movement that empowers Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, and Influencers to state their most cherished personal quotes to the world. They then elaborate on their quote through their thought. I am proud to be a part of this collaboration.
I hope you enjoy my November 9th thought....
what they’re saying—
One remarkable example is that of Jeannine Rivers' story, "Hearing a Close Call." I wish I had heard and attended to my own inner voice as early in life as she was called to do...and did! I also appreciate that each story contains a contact address to reach the author or find out more about their work.

I loved the diversity of the personal stories that the women shared in this volume of 21st Century Voices. As a Motivator I particularly thought the contribution by Jeannine Rivers Colburn, “My Black is Beautiful,” insightful and apropos in recognition of Black History. Ms. Rivers shares a memory from her beloved father and his embracing of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech and her realization that Blackness matters. The awareness that she has been living in an illusion of equality awakens her Black identity, which is not always an easy thing to admit. Jeannine is “woke,” Black identity matters, Jeannine’s Black is Beautiful, Black Lives Matter.
The stories in the book are amazing and inspiring- stories of hope, courage, and survival. I especially loved the chapter by Jeannine Rivers- Hearing a Close Call. Wow! A true story of survival! She is a true mental health advocate
