"Fred Dawson gives us an up-close-and-personal look at the lives of extraordinary female trailblazers, leaders from all walks of professional life: higher education, politics, entrepreneurship, law, big business, small business and non-profit. These women have leapt over barriers, recovered from grief, made profound sacrifices, broken rules, discovered untapped courage within themselves and given selflessly to others. They are mothers, wives, daughters and friends."

"This inspirational book will truly motivate you to 'feel the fear and do it anyway.' The women featured have shown that with the right attitude and willingness to face challenges head-on, you can achieve anything."

Despite the setbacks they faced, they were focused and worked hard to reach their goals. The quotes, summaries, photographs, and organization of the book make it easy to navigate and comprehend the content."

"Pearls by Fred Dawson is the continuation of Books I and II and, like the earlier ones, will give peace and strength to readers to see how the women in the book have risen above their personal difficulties and found a balance in their workspace and personal lives. Every story and every woman mentioned will encourage readers to find their worth."

"The title itself is an endearing, well-suited metaphor for the women inside, and as you read on, it’s easy to see why that is. Although these courageous, unforgettable “Pearls” come from many different places and walks of life, what they have in common is what led them to where they are today. Each has a combination of personal power consisting of faith, strength, intuition, perseverance, ambition, and vision (to name just a few). A power that every reader has at any time if they learn how to access it."
