Publisher's Summary

After the tragic loss of her son and a marriage that ended in divorce and near-bankruptcy, world-renowned health and transformation expert Danette May found her life in shambles. But when her support seemed to come from few and her options seemed the most far between, she began to hear a voice inside her telling her it was time.

May never predicted that her journey would take her into a world bikini competition, to a sacred healer in Costa Rica, or through a process of heart-wrenching forgiveness. And she definitely didn't know it would lead to establishing her own international business, touching the lives of millions of people around the world. Yet it was her soul's calling that led her there.

With raw honesty and shocking vulnerability, May shares her own radical truth and insights of self-love and forgiveness to help you manifest the fullest expression of yourself. She distills the essence of sparking your own transformation and guides you through the small daily "hinges" that will open life's doors for you.

The time has come for you to connect with your greatest self. The time has come for you to rise.

I had no idea there was so much to her story!

Danette is amazing. I honestly thought this would be a diet and exercise book with advice and maybe inspiration but it was so much more. She really did rise above all kinds of struggles and I so admire her strength and determination. A really interesting read.

Raw, Real, and Powerful

I am glad I bought this on Audible and not in paper copy as I'm not sure I would have been as satisfied or able to finish. the story was powerful and real and at times a little intense. I couldn't put this down and absorbed every minute of thr knowledge in it. I am grateful to Danette for sharing her story and inspiring great thought and perseverance.

Awesome!

Danette is so real and so raw with her story. Loved the audio format as her voice makes you feel you are sitting with her. Her story makes you go deep in yourself to discover your own truths! I will buy the book but love the audio book to listen to as I drive everyday to work. A must read and a must to follow this amazing woman!

Vulnerable

I didn’t know how Danette could possibly have more to share about her story. She’s always so open. Yet in this book she is still able to share more of herself and her rise. While allowing the listener to reflect and step into her own self and her rise.

Not just for Females

Vulnerable truth shared here. Real power in her message. Well written clear takeaways. Loved the questions asked to allow self reflection. Not just helpful for women but men such as myself as well.

An instruction manual and radical permission slip.

I am in the rising, stepping forward, learning to speak my truth and stand on my story phase of healing and awakening and this book is an affirming instruction manual on steps I’ve taken, and guide for the ones I’m yet to arrive at and a radical permission slip to continue shedding all that hasn’t served me. This book would also be ridiculously powerful for any woman whose life is in the beginning or middle stages of the collapses that lead us towards transformation. Thank you Danette for being so very brave. I loved your book and am inspired to keep rising as well.

Not what I thought!

I was hoping for a beautiful Story but it seemed to me it was very New age...Which I wish it would have been noted somewhere. Maybe I missed that critical part. I'm not a believer in this kind of self ritual. the whole thing was weird... I did finish the book in hopes it would turn around, this was not the case. Better luck with next book I'm sure.

What a great book!

I loved this book. I may listen to it twice. I was actually lead to this book. Every single chapter had something in it I could deeply relate to.
