Join Changing Hands for a talk, Q&A and booksigning with the founder and CEO of the SheFactor.
SheFactor is a book and app that helps young women find their passion, focus on goals, and achieve balance in their personal and professional lives. The book outlines a letter to any woman’s younger self, showing that every path is unique and there is no “right” way to achieve your own form of success. Ganahl doesn’t tell us what to do—she gives a microphone to the inner voice that already knows what to do. The encouragement in the book corresponds to the more tactical accountability that is game-ified in the SheFactor companion app, which readers can use to track each factor in her own life, or locate a mentor or group of friends to help keep her accountable to her new, balanced life goals.
