Creating Your Story: Celebrating Accomplished Female Book Authors

In celebration of accomplished women authors, 6-Figures hosted a panel discussion with a few of our very own 6-Figures celebrated authors.  These incredibly talented women found their voice, created their stories...and shared their experiences with us.
