I have realized that many women in the industry often taken a road less of value to get to there next stop. Often times these women do not find out until its too late that the road they decided to travel comes with much bagged and can cause you to never reach your destiny. Standing for whats right in a world that's often wrong, author Themisa S. Mshaka gives us the insight and road map on how to maneuver in such a male dominate industry where women are looked at more as a pawn in a chest game instead of the valuable queen.
Thembisa S. Mshaka the Author of Put Your Dreams 1st How To Handle Your Entertainment Business, interviews top women leaders of the entertainment industry to give insight and wisdom to help you pick your dreams back up, dust them off, and put your dreams firsts!
This book has given me much insight on how to attack my dreams and the does and don'ts on how to do it. Since getting my internship at 16 i vowed never to go against my beliefs and values. I am proud to say that still today I have stuck to my guns. I know this is possible and that as women you do not have to give out to get put in.
