Overcoming Mediocrity©

is a unique collection of stories from women who have created their own lives of significance, not only in their professional lives, but in their personal, physical or spiritual lives as well. We have some inspiring stories from established leaders who are making an impact on a larger scale as well as from those who are making a difference and impacting a select few in their everyday lives. These stories are meant to inspire and encourage women to realize their true potential.

Our Project

We are so excited to begin our third anthology book in the series called Overcoming Mediocrity Volume III, A Unique Collection of Stories from Strong Women Who Have Created Their Own Lives of Significance.

  • VOLUME I – Dynamic Women, was a smashing success as we released the book on May 2013 with 22 participating authors sharing their stories meant to inspire other women to success. Plus we achieved bestselling status on Amazon in the “Motivational” category in only one day. Yeah!!!!
  • VOLUME II – Courageous Women was released in April of 2014 with 19 participating authors and also achieved the same results with our bestselling marketing strategy.
  • VOLUME III – Strong Women was released in May of 2015 with 19 participating authors and held the #1 status in the Amazon “Women & Business” category for three straight days…. You can applaud now. 🙂
  • VOLUME IV – Remarkable Women was released in October 2016 with 24 participating authors and also achieved the #1 bestselling status on Amazon.
  • VOLUME V – Resilient Women was released in June 2017 with 21 participating authors and also achieved the #1 bestselling status on Amazon in both categories.


What’s Next???

Because OM was such a huge success, we are launching our next book Overcoming Mediocrity Volume VI which is scheduled to be released in early 2018. And with the tools and tricks learned in the previous five volumes, this book and its authors are sure to get even more traction and exposure than its predecessors.
