This seems an unusual title for an etiquette handbook, but the name perfectly describes the purpose of this combination handbook/workbook and is the brainchild of the authorís daughter, Chelsey.
This book may be used in conjunction with Ms. Yatesís Self-Enhancement Seminar Notebook. The seminar is designed to provide young women who are going off to college with a solid foundation upon which to build self-confidence/self-esteem and thereby excel in developing their life skills.
In our multicultural society, we are expected to be spiritually in-tune and socially savvy and posses business acumen. Indestructible Beginnings is your vehicle to a solid springboard into a happy and exciting life.
