DES MOINES, Iowa - April 2, 2019 - PRLog -- Cheryl O'Donoghue's latest book How to Be a Woman in Technology (while Focusing on What Matters Most) is creating quite the buzz in the world of tech. Rather than focusing on what's wrong with being a woman in the fastest growing sector of business, the book takes a look at what's right. How to Be a Woman in Technology features stories from fifteen women in addition to the author who are unafraid to speak their truth and share their fascinating journeys as women in technology.

"Every woman in tech will relate in some meaningful way because this is our collective story," says O'Donoghue. "Each chapter is powerful, beautiful, and stirring. Each woman shares her personal insights and lessons learned so that she can be of service to others…so that others can carve out their own path to career and life success. The energy you get from these stories is palpable and exciting."

All royalties from book sales go to benefit women-focused nonprofits, education, and community programs served by Mission Sisters Who Work, a 501(c)3 humanitarian organization co-founded by Cheryl and Mark O'Donoghue.
