“The 40/40 Rules: Wisdom from 40 Women Over 40 is a quick-reading compilation of the authors’ responses to the same thoughtful questions about how they each navigate their lives. Through this emerges a tapestry of stories colored with personal life lessons, invaluable knowledge and encouraging insights.
Although there is diversity within the group of authors, there seems to be a common denominator about this season of life that develops. It’s about the time women bloom into the best versions of themselves. Lessons learned reshape and define our self-esteem, values, and desire to serve others with clearer purpose. Rather than a threshold signaling an irreversible step into the eve of old age, forty is actually pretty magical. I highly recommend the book!”
“The diverse group of women answering the same questions with a variety of life experiences, made this a wonderful read. The answers they each present is unique to their experiences, yet there is no right or wrong, just wisdom from women who have learned what is important in life.”
Nancy E Gordon
“What a great idea to bring forty women together and get different perspectives for each of them. I learned many different ways others have done things! It gave me hope that I too could try some new things in my life and be just fine.”
“This book has brought me some new insights and the feeling that I am not alone when it comes to doing “life stuff.” I have learned a lot about 40 women who definitely have some wisdom to share. You should learn a lot too!”
“When reading this book, there was a lot of diversity. I loved that the most. It is always refreshing to get other women’s perspectives on subjects. It has helped me realize, even though we may live all over the world, we can join together in things that are important, and grow by sharing our knowledge. What a great way to do so!”
“The Authors of The 40/40 Rules are women over the age of forty who are unique and share their diverse paths to achieve want every woman wants: to feel special, be special, and gain great wisdom.”
“Holly Porter has done it again! She has brought together forty amazing women who share a wealth of information, their heart, and real wisdom from years of experience.
The book is like a tapestry of various experiences to help any women who reads it, feel a true sisterhood, inspiration, and come away with ideas on how to be more prosperous in life and business. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to move their life forward.”

What a fabulous book Holly has created with this newest book in her Rules series! Being one of the contributors in her first Rules Book, The 40/40 Rules: Wisdom from 40 Women Over 40, I can say firsthand what a difference her books have made for many who have learned from many unique women! In fact, it was so well received, that I offered the book’s compiler, Holly Porter, the idea to create a series from multiple generations of international women. It is thrilling to see what comes to fruition, not only for the wisdom and guidance each book provides the reader, but also to showcase Holly Porter’s many expansive gifts.
One of the gifts that Holly Porter provides in this book and this series is a platform for those who have not been published to become first-time authors. It changes people in such uplifting ways when they can create a body of work to be received by others in a book, particularly one that offers wisdom and guidance. For many new authors, becoming published has the power to up-level business owners, professionals, and entrepreneurs to an expert status, which can catapult them in business.
Inside you will find how forty unique authors view commitment, creativity, and productivity with the possibility of discovering ways to improve your own. Other life-changing gems inside these pages are suggestions and ideas about how to connect with your inner voice, wisdom found through the success of other, inspirational quotes, book recommendations, and so much more!
The best part of this book is that it is an easy read filled with ideas and information that illuminates the mind of readers to take action. Holly Porter has done it again with her newest offering, The 40/40 Rules: Wisdom from 40 Women Over 40! You won’t want to miss a single chapter!
In The 40/40 Rules book (vol. 1), forty women became International Best-Sellers. After all of the responses from so many wanting to be part of the rules book series, it was decided that we would do a vol. 11. All of the rules book series are set up in a question and answer format. The authors answer the same questions in each of their chapters. You as the reader, can go through the same question and read each answer, or read it chapter by chapter. My favorite part in every one of The Rules Book Series is at the end. Each author lists their three must-read books and their favorite mantra.
The wisdom within these pages is from many years of blood, sweat, and tears from each author, to get to where they are today. In my opinion, any women who have lived 40+ years has some knowledge to share with others. I hope that when you read this book, you will discover some new ways of doing things differently or get new ideas of changes you can make in your life. Who knows, maybe you will think your life has been boring and want to take some action!
No matter where you are, know it is perfect for you, and it is never too late to discover and try something new in your life. Let’s go on a journey and imagine all the possibilities you are about to discover.
