In the third edition, there are updates from the women in the first book, along with brand new interviews from even more Single Women Entrepreneurs. What are the women from the first two books doing 5 years later? Are their businesses growing, changing, or even still afloat? What are these women up to now?

Why I wrote it: I didn’t write this one solo. With one of my mentors, Dr. David Borst, retired dean of business at Concordia University Wisconsin, we both penned our own perspectives on mentoring women and setting up our own mentoring programs for women, as we both have experience in this realm. This book is really two books in one, and for women seeking optimal mentors, and organizations growing their people through mentoring.

Indiana State Pharmacy Law Guide: 2016

Order it from:
        Author

Why I wrote it: I put together a collection of resources I used during the several years I taught pharmacy law in Indiana, because there is no other helpful guide to understanding and learning the law in pharmacy within the state of Indiana, other than the law(s) themselves. This is an easy-to-use, searchable PDF to slides, resources and even a mock examination at the end. Of course, it does NOT cover FEDERAL law, so while it would be helpful to use when studying for licensure, it will NOT cover all the laws out there on pharmacy practice; it is merely a supplement to Indiana pharmacy law.

Why I wrote it: The way of work is changing in the U.S. The promise of 'Go to college, graduate, get a good job, and retire from it 30 years later with a gold watch' are over. Now, how are the best, most savvy mavens of career superstardom managing their careers? By creating a portfolio of gigs, or being 'multipational.'' Study along with me in this book the multipational career developer--how they think, how they add gigs to their portfolios, and best of all, how they insulate themselves from the tumult of job fragility in this modern era.

Why I wrote it: As a first generation college graduate in my family, and lucky enough to have chosen a STEM profession, I’ve been reading about girls in the state of Indiana and the U.S. when it comes to choosing STEM careers and I’m alarmed. It’s not easy being a girl in Indiana, and it’s not an easy road to achieving a STEM profession for girls everywhere. As this is my first solo children’s book, I also wanted to try and get more copies of this book into the hands of girls around the state of Indiana. Also, while every girl loves a good princess story, the princesses in this book will redefine what it means to be a princess—by learning how to save themselves and their planet. It’s one thing to talk about a problem, and another thing to do something about it. I’m doing something about the challenge of STEM for girls.

Why I wrote it: For pharmacists, everyone thinks the hard part is getting into pharmacy school, passing organic chemistry, graduating, passing the board exams, and landing that first job as a pharmacist. That is the easy part. This book addresses the much more difficult part for newly licensed pharmacists: what come after pharmacy school? This practical, yet inspirational book is for pharmacists 0-10 years into their careers, who also might ponder what else is out there—in terms of professional and career development—for years and decades to come.

The Butler Bookstore is the only place on the planet to get the hardcopy book with the author's autograph.

Why I wrote it: Ever wonder what it might be like to go to law school? Thinking about going back to school? Better think twice. During the economic recession, law has been one of the hardest-hit white-collar professions. In this book, I chronicle over 4 years my own part-time law school experience, while keeping a full-time day job and doing a few other things on the side. If you want a candid and honest appraisal of what law school is really like, read this book, especially for the later in life, second-career law students, people attending law school part-time, and those with a solid first career established before contemplating the law school add-on.

        Nook
        Kobo

Why I wrote it: This is the first edition of a book that is going to rock the world and challenge the way we’ve done career development in the U.S. Plan A: Go to a good college, get a great “professional” job—then get pink slipped and laid off (been there, done that.) Plan B: Chuck it all, declare yourself a full time entrepreneur—work twice as hard as you did as a professional, for half as much money. Get tired, frustrated, and run out of money—then close your business, broke. Plan C: Don’t leave the day job. Keep it. Don’t give up the entrepreneurial dream, either. Keep that too. DO BOTH! We interview several professionals living the Plan C life, and argue that the new “safe” career is having multiple careers moving forward simultaneously.

Why I wrote it: The number of unmarried adult women actually outnumbers the number of married women for the first time in US history. Women are now earning more, going to college and graduate schools more often, and finding ways to become more independent. Also, according to the Kauffman Foundation, single, divorced and widowed women are starting more businesses as entrepreneurs than men in their respective categories. This book interviews single women entrepreneurs throughout the US to discern why they started their own original businesses, what the perceived advantages and disadvantages are for the single woman entrepreneur, what they each learned from the experience, and what advice they have for the next generation of single women entrepreneurs.

Why I wrote it: The second edition of this key to the city of Indianapolis includes updated information on the city itself; but I also added the best thing about Indy to this book: its people! I included 40 up and coming or current leaders - either young professionals or seasoned professionals - and shared their words of wisdom on one of the best cities on the planet, Indianapolis! Mayor Greg Ballard wrote the foreword to this second edition as well.

Why I wrote it: As a 1L, I looked for a book and couldn’t find one on this subject. There are several thousand life science attorneys in the US and world, but I couldn’t find a book on their amazing stories. So, I decided to do a little qualitative research and learn about them and share it with the world, before law school. Why did they go to law school after their life science/healthcare education, and what are they doing with their careers?  Find out in this book, where I interviewed over 30 life science/healthcare and law hybrid professionals.

        Free eBook

Why I wrote it: This book grew out of a product from Yuspie, LLC for its members. There was no good print resource on things like where to get great leadership training in town, to living green, to great third spaces with free wi-fi, so I blew the basic online edition of the guide for Yuspie members into a full-fledged book for young professionals either new to the city or just getting out of their college bubbles, in an effort to make the city more user friendly.

Why I wrote it: I have been in the Medical Science Liaison (MSL) role for many companies, and started my own consulting company (Pharm, LLC) to help others with the role. There was no resource guide on the basics of the role, so I created one along with my pal, Dr. Cathy Sass. This is the first book on the MSL.

Why it was written: I didn’t write ANY of it! But, I was one of 3 faculty mentors on this project. Nine senior students from my alma mater, Butler University (3 from the College of Pharmacy, 3 from the College of Education and 3 from the Jordan College of Fine Arts) wrote and illustrated a book for children on what pharmacy is, and what pharmacists do--in order to educate about pharmacy in a fun way!

Why I wrote it: Well, I didn’t write all of it. Twenty plus rock stars of pharmacy contributed to this project, and it was compiled by some awesome pharmacy students at Butler University. Everyone in pharmacy and healthcare should read this book, which provides some wisdom from some of the top pharmacy leaders in the US. Proceeds from this book are going to Hodgkin’s research and a scholarship fund at Butler University.

You're Always Being Interviewed
©2016

"The foremost challenge facing every business is the shortage of prepared, trained, deployable talent. After encountering so many ordinary and disappointing candidates for open positions, it became obvious a guide on how to [strive] to be intentionally exceptional would be helpful to job seekers. Helping the reader understand that interviewing doesn’t start at the beginning of an interview, it happens over a prolonged period of time. The stories and lessons in the book are intended to help the reader build confidence and, more importantly, awareness of their conduct in and out of the interview room."

-- Ron Brumbarger, Author

Dear Me
©2011

"When reading this book, keep a highlighter close at hand to illuminate the bits of wisdom that seem aimed directly at you. I did, and when I finished the last page the book was aglow in yellow ink. Dear Me may have begun as a clever concept--letters to our younger selves-- but it evolved into a collection of insightful essays to be savored and passed on to all members of the sisterhood."

-- Holly Miller, contributing editor, The Saturday Evening Post, Coauthor of Feature and Magazine Writing (Wiley, 2009)

Business, Networking & Sex: Not What You Think
©2011

"Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, but networking is networking right? Wrong, how we communicate with each other has a direct impact on our ability to connect and get connected. I wrote this book because I have been concerned about women's inability to leverage the networks that they build. If we can learn to bridge the gap there is more success for all of us. This book will educate, entertain and aggravate you, so have fun with it."

-- Hazel Walker, coauthor
