Wouldnât it be great if you could be audaciously ambitious and happy at the same time?
You can, and you will.

âIâm here to tell you that all of your prioritiesâpersonal and ambitious career goals alikeâcan fit together harmoniously. Iâll show you how, like thousands of women Iâve worked with over the years, you can make more money, earn the credit and recognition you deserve, have more power, and be as ambitious as you want to be. Iâll show you how you can be ambitchous without compromising your ethics and integrity. Iâll show you that you can feel worthy and entitled to all of this without fear that you risk sacrificing your desire to have a full, happy personal life and without being afraid that youâll be less of a woman. Itâs worked for me. Itâs worked for countless ambitchous women Iâve advised. It will work for you.â
âFrom amBITCHous

We women arenât advancing in our careers the way we should. Weâre not making the money we deserve or getting the fulfillment we desire. And this time itâs not men who are holding us back. This time weâre doing it to ourselves, because ambitionâfor usâis still a dirty word.
Debra Condren has coached thousands of women at every levelâfrom those just starting out to the most powerful female executives in the United Statesâand each one possesses the same fear: if she goes after her dream, sheâll be seen as selfish, bitchy, a bad wife, or bad mother. But itâs exactly this fear of ambition that has forced women to leave the best part of themselvesâtheir dreams, their great talentsâby the roadside, rendering them less able to be the whole people they should be in every area of their lives.
Condren has a new message and mission: to remind women that ambition is a virtue, not a vice. Ambition is the best of who we are.
The real way to have a great life is to see ambition as a part of your value system to which you must give equal attention, along with the other priorities you hold dear, including your spouse, your children, and your friends. In amBITCHous, Dr. Condren offers fresh, powerful tools for reclaiming your dreams. Her eight amBITCHous Rules provide concrete, innovative solutions to the everyday struggles we as women face, like taking credit, deflecting detractors, and handling confrontation, so that you can become more powerful and fulfilled at work and more satisfied at home. You can redefine your ambition in the face of social sanctions and unapologetically go after your dreams without sacrificing the rest of your life.
You owe it to yourself and the world to make the contribution you were born to make. Debra Condren will show you how to do it.

âA defiant charge to women to 'reclaim ambition as a virtue'â¦Ms. Condren, who has been paying attention all along, [has] worked out a way to make charm and ambition pay."
âNew York Times
âDebra Condren challenges women to see ambition as a virtue and to take credit for winning at work and at home. â¦Itâs not that women must ignore the needs of others, but they need to recognize and prioritize their own needs.â
â The Dallas Morning News
