Synopsis

Mental health is quickly becoming less of a taboo topic and more of real concern, due to world cultural riots, manifestations, isolation, unemployment, suffering economies …. the system's are crumbling around the pandemic. From which, womxn are the most affected ones. The reality is that as womxn continue to climb social ranks, they continue to deal with multiple traumas surrounding sexual abuse, physical abuse, post-partum trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and even addiction. The real problem womxn are facing is the repression and invisible shackles we keep on ourselves due to the stigma of weakness our cultural and social heritage promotes. We are avoiding the inner and outer roadblocks within oursleves, which lead to a recession in all manners.

During the author's time in service in the United States Navy, a decade of serving the transitioning military community, and as the President & Founder at The Paradigm Switch, the author saw herself and other womxn struggling in key areas day in and day out. She found that her experiences were very common and that she wasn’t alone in her "secret" feelings. The more she encouraged vulnerable and honest conversations with womxn she worked with, the more she discovered how they were struggling with the same things as her.

“Girl, F*ck This” will provide a tangible path toward the author's vision of authentic and courageous leadership. This book will help womxn to create their own rules, provide permission for them to stop living their life for others, face their own roadblocks, and accept permission to stop participating in destructive behavior. Each chapter the author will highligh a collection of personal experiences as an opportunity for the reader to relate to. At the end of each chapter, the author will provide an invitation for the reader to participate in journal prompts and healing personal reflective work. If you purchase, read, and participate in the activities in this book you may find the courage to slow down, trust yourself, forgive yourself, and or begin to build a life that serves you as much as you serve everyone else.

The author is a Navy veteran, military spouse, and social entrepreneur who is no stranger to overcoming obstacles and finding the courage to create a better way forward for those after her. Currently, she is serving as the Founder & CEO of Courage to Create which teaches womxn, entrepreneurs, artists, and executive-level leaders how to trust their instincts and embody their creativity. In her spare time she serves as the President & Founder of The Paradigm Switch; a global non-profit that teaches military spouses how to design a life they can take anywhere in the world. There she leads and manages a volunteer team of 15 people in 8 different time zones and a global network of 2,000 military spouses (92% women) from around the globe.

Justine is redefining the word innovation and believes that everyone has the ability to innovate in their own unique way. Justine believes that we must not only learn how to anticipate change but we also must learn how to create it.

Advance praise

“Great leaders are built of grit and driven by a sense of purpose. Justine has both in spades. Identifying a problem or gap is easy, creating a solution, and implementing it is what separates the wheat from the chaff. Few have the ability to do this successfully. Justine has a proven record of success and more importantly, has demonstrated the grit necessary to overcome hardship.”
-Stephanie Brown, Founder & CEO of The Rosie Network

“Justine is willing to break down the walls others have built-in society, in corporate culture, and around themselves. She's not afraid to challenge and dig deeper into the root of a belief or perspective, and uses her creativity and voice to form an emotional, human connection.”
- Nikki Zellner James, Founder of Where Content Connects.

“You came up with the idea for The Paradigm Switch and built a global community from scratch. You drew from your own emotional personal experience and saw the deep need in the worldwide network of military spouses and acted decisively. What I admire most about the organization you built is not only the practical services that The Paradigm Switch provides but more importantly the inspiration and support that you knew military spouses need to become the change that they always knew they had innately within them.”
- Dan Kanivas, Managing Partner, Triple Summit Advisors & Board Member at The Paradigm Switch

Cranthorpe Millner

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.
