599.jpg In Significant! From Frustrated to Franne-tastic, deemed the women's storybook of "mining your mind for what matters," Franne McNeal uses the power of storytelling to help women know themselves, connect with their personal power, take control of their lives, and turn obstacles into options. With well-known fables, stories from her own life, sharp insights, and workbook-style questions, she teaches women to "Step Up to Significance" by increasing their commitment to get going, embrace opportunity, find support, accept love and be significant.
