Jo Hausman, author of Go For It! A Woman’s Guide to Perseverance, shares her personal memoir, which also has a business twist to it. Hausman first started this book as a chronicling of her late husband’s death due to a terminal illness, but it turned into a book on how she found herself and her inner energy to keep going and how writing this book really changed her life. She talked about how she has accomplished things since his passing that she thought they would accomplish together but she was able to do on her own. Hausman wants to be able to help people and get them through the hard times with lessons she has learned throughout her experiences.
