Real-deal ways to defy expectations and love oneself into a high-performing life, from a fabulous and fierce Black woman, speaker, teacher, and coach. Practical, everyday, and unapologetically fierce and fun ways to manifest wants in every personal and professional sphere.

Permission Granted illustrates proven paths from "you couldn't possibly" to "just watch me " Regina Louise puts a unique spin on tried-and-true techniques of personal growth, coaching readers to deeply understand who they are and what they have been through. From this self-awareness, they can move into self-compassion and learn to give themselves the care and support they may have lacked. Past devastations and disappointments turn into motivations and momentum. Louise took herself from a childhood in solitary confinement in a residential treatment center to college and the creation of several successful small businesses. She now works to show others how to dream and do no matter what. The stories she presents in Permission Granted are perhaps especially applicable to women and people of color but are undeniably inspirational for anyone striving to get out from under limiting beliefs — their own as well as others'. It's for anyone who is looking for a savvy guide to the myriad twists and turns on the road from where they are to where they want to be.
