In this episode of Lykken on Lending in the Hot Topic segment, David interviews Christine Beckwith & Jessica Peterson who co-authored the book “Clear Boundaries: Every Business Woman’s Essential Safety Guide”.
Are you a woman who knows safety is important but are lost on the latest information to keep you safe? Have you been followed by men who had ill intentions? Are you a man who fears for the safety of your women colleagues in business?
The readers of this book answer yes to these questions. Both authors of Clear Boundaries have received unsolicited sexual advances via social media messaging and have been frightened and nervous in situations doing simple things like walking to and from the car when arriving at hotels for business travel.
The list of potentially dangerous circumstances is long, too long to include here. These (and more in the book) alarming stories are shared with insight on how to be safe. You could be next!
• Cab drivers driving in the wrong direction.
• A business drive ending up in a man’s dark bedroom.
• Strangers following from hotel bars onto the elevator, looking for your room number.
• Unwelcome advances leading to awkward professional situations.
• A woman attacked at work and left in a bathroom, badly injured.
This is a book about protection and how to respond to and avoid threatening situations.
Written by two businesswomen who have endured countless situations, they share their stories and those of fellow business people.
