SUMTER, SC, November 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bertha W. McCants holds a doctorate in education, is the founder and CEO of two successful businesses, an astounding executive leadership strategy mentor and national speaker, and now bestselling author who wants her audience to truly follow their heart and become the leader they were meant to be.
Dr. McCants knows that everyone has a leader within and her new book, "Lead Your Imagined Life by Having the Courage to Listen to Your Heart", is the guide you need to learn to listen to your heart and release yours. Her inspiring story about her humble beginnings to her abundant success will leave you motivated and ready, while her practical and necessary guidance and tools will leave you prepared and empowered to start your own journey.
In a recent interview on Thriving Entrepreneur radio show, Bertha said, "This book is a part of a healing voice for me. It's the story of Bertha, the little 6-year-old girl who had a vision a long time ago and she just followed that vision to develop and grow to be able to listen to her heart. I wrote this book, so I can help other women have a smoother transition into leadership and to eliminate some of the pain that could come with trying to be a full-time student as well as working full-time or trying to be a mom, a sister, a wife, and just taking care of all life roles."
Steve Kidd, the host of the radio show said, "Have the courage to listen to your heart so you can lead the life that you have always dreamed of."
Dr. McCants started her life with a series of disadvantages including being born to a teen-age mom, living as a share-cropper with her grandparents in the deep segregated south, and growing up so poor she had to be put on welfare after her mom died of drug related complications. But through it all, education was her guiding light to a new life. She went to college on scholarships and work-study, beating the odds with a Bachelor's in Science, a Master's in Education, and a Doctorate in Education (Ed. D.) focusing on Educational Administration.
She then dedicated her life to making sure every student in her sphere of influence had a shot at a better life like she did through education. She took all of her survival, all of her "mess," and turned it into a system that fast-tracked her from teacher to superintendent in 9 years, created a 6-Figure Educational Consulting Group, created a 6-Figure Insurance Agency with her husband and now is an International Best-Selling Author.
Dr. McCants' passion is inspiring purpose-driven, high achieving people who have walked through life's fire, from the inside out, to change the world. She is teaching that exact same system coupled with focus and heart-felt commitment to principals, superintendents, and top-tier educational administrators who have served our children and it's now YOUR time to flourish!
She teaches the importance of taming your time, having peace of mind while living a lucrative, leisurely lifestyle and making a difference as you become a 6-figure educational consultant.
In her free time, she enjoys ice cream, traveling, going to the movies with her husband, Russell, of over 30 years and sharing adventures with her two adult sons, Jamaal and Byron.
