Fierce Females: Dr. Laura

The one trait that I believe define Fierce Females is “accountability”.  Taking responsibility for your own actions and choices.  Not blaming “him”, “her”, or “them”.  We set our own course.  We are in control of our destiny.  We are not helpless damsels in distress.

Enter Dr. Laura.  That is her game.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a pretty controversial radio talk show host.  Years ago, her program was carried by my local radio station (thank goodness!).  She is now syndicated internationally, and her show is exclusively carried on Sirius (as well as online streaming and podcasts).


When I was young(er), single, and stumbling finding my way in life, I discovered Dr. Laura.  She is hardcore, doesn’t sugar coat, and tells it like it is – even though you don’t want to hear it.

Her book, “Ten Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives”, gave me a much needed bitch slap in reality.  I became a stronger, more empowered woman after reading her book.  If you are single, in a “iffy” relationship, or are just starting out, I highly recommend this book.

I don’t agree with ALL of her views, but her message to women is right on; stand up for yourself, do not let a man define you, and put yourself in check if your life is going awry.

Have a great week, and BE FIERCE!

    Being able to admit that you are wrong and that you messed up is an important lesson in life. We only grow and develop by learning from our mistakes. I will have to check this book out Lucy x
