The Bottom Line: Local Author Addresses Women’s Empowerment at the Ivy

Share the News

“I don’t want you to waste another minute of your life focusing on your big butt or other imperfections. Instead, I want you to embrace your vulnerabilities and go on to conquer your dreams.” Those wise words come from Baltimore businesswoman, motivational speaker and, now, author, Laura Black, who spent much of her life focused on just that — molding herself into the physical ideal of womanhood our culture often promotes. Finally she realized it wasn’t her body that was holding her back, it was her attitude about her body.

Her new and improved outlook helped propel her to a successful career and now she’s written a book to help other women. Join Black next week Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m. when she comes to the Ivy Bookshop to discuss her new book, BIG BUTTS, FAT THIGHS AND OTHER SECRETS TO SUCCESS: Empowering Women to Be Real in Business and in Life.

“For some, our big butt is literal,” she says. “It may be so big that we have given up trying to squeeze it into the latest designer jeans…For others, our big butt is figurative. It may be our fear that we are a failure because our position was eliminated. Women often allow big butts/buts to keep them from taking advantage of the very situations that could change their lives for the better.”

Laura Black will be at the Ivy Bookshop, 6080 Falls Road, on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m.  To learn more about the event, visit the Ivy Bookshop website.
