“I definitely felt my own ‘inner sparkle’ shining brighter after reading Lois’ book. In a society that tells women ‘don’t be too much,’ ‘it’s important to be nice,’ and ‘you don’t want to stand out too much,’ we grow up with these messages so often dimming our own shine. My wish is that many women read this book and know that it is ok to own all parts of who they are. I had the opportunity to work with Lois when I was in the middle of a huge career transition as a makeup artist. She was a godsend in the moment when I was ready to give up everything that I had worked so hard for. Through my work with her I found that part of my real truth and gifts was to make a difference on the planet. My client work transitioned from feeling tired and unappreciated to clients who valued me. I healed a huge ‘under earning’ story I had and began to see that what I was offering my clients was so much more than what I alone could see. I’m thankful for my time with Lois. It was priceless.”

“As a longtime client and fan of Lois Barth’s, I am thrilled that she’s gathered her wisdom into a complete book (she has enough to fill a few more volumes). My sister, Tali Edut, and I first worked with Lois when our business was at a crucial turning point. As a coach, she lovingly guided us to make important changes that turned our company into the profitable venture it is today, many years later. What sets Lois apart is her blend of authenticity, fun and major personality, bolstered by a rock-solid background of experience, training and practicality. She’s a savvy New Yorker who “gets it” while also bringing a nurturing and sisterly vibe. Lois genuinely cares about and invests herself into the people she works with…and really, into everyone she meets. She is also a phenomenal storyteller. Reading the anecdotes in Courage to SPARKLE is comforting but also brought much “laughter of recognition.” At risk of sounding sappy, this book really touched me. We all need encouragement and tools to keep believing in ourselves, and to bravely forge ahead on the paths that call to us. Lois does this with wit, style and yes, plenty of sparkle.”
