In conversation with Alma Derricks


This book empowers women to Claim Space—to live the life of your choosing, unapologetically and bravely.

With an upbeat, take-no-prisoners style, Eliza VanCort has written a must-read book for every woman seeking to make her own luck and create her own destiny. Each chapter is an accessible "how-to" for a fuller life, offering big ideas and actionable tools. VanCort has identified five distinct aspects of being a "Master Space Claimer" and presents each in a way that informs, inspires, and guides the reader. Bold, enlightened and easy to engage, the book is birthed from VanCort's inspiring story, informed by the experiences of real women and packed with relevant research and concrete strategies. It isn't a text book, but instead is a crafted conversation with a girlfriend. VanCort, organizational consultant, speaker, and thought leader, will galvanize women to empower themselves to claim space for themselves, and for their sisters, with courage, empathy, and conviction because "when we rise together we rise so much higher."
