Core Strength: Being Happy and Having Impact in a World Run by Men


Lane’s latest book project explores not only what it takes for a woman to find and hold onto a mature and grounded sense of her authentic self and voice, but also how to leverage that self-knowledge to build a more fulfilling career path and navigate the tricky territory of a male-dominated world more effectively. In it, Lane artfully blends her own story and hard-won wisdom with insights from other women and the results of more than three years of broader research she conducted on the subject. The book explores why an authentic self and voice matter, what common patterns and hazards women face in the process of finding and holding onto them, and how women can use knowledge to become stronger and more resilient, have greater impact, and end up happier in both their professional and personal lives.

A compilation of memorable moments and lessons gathered from more than 20 years as a pilot and world explorer.

A book for young adults on flying and designing airplanes.
