Any given Sunday in the fall, this avid Chicago Bears fan can be found cheering on her beloved Bears (no matter how dismal their record has been).​​

    If you currently own or would like to purchase the Meg’s first book, Put Your Big Girl Pants On...: and Other Power Moves to Increase Influence, there will be time after the closing plenary program to meet and have your book signed by author Meg Bucaro 

    Just Released – Put Your Big Girl Pants On...: and Other Power Moves to Increase Influence 

    Women can encounter unique communication challenges that are often treated with one-size-fits-all solutions. This book reveals strategies and tactics to help women specifically increase their influence through authentic, powerful communication behaviors. Your 'big girl pants' will help to communicate your authentic self-worth and confidence. Putting big girl pants on is a symbol of recognizing your intrinsic value in a world that doesn't always lend it to you. This book reminds the reader that you do not need to be in a position of power to communicate powerfully. 
    Do not read this book if you are easily offended, don't like the title, can't appreciate a well-placed curse word, or think 'pants' needs to mean literal pants. 
    This book will be worthwhile for those who need a few strategies to hone their communication skills, are not often sure what to say, occasionally walk away from interactions with regret, need a friendly little kick in the behind to feel empowered, or might benefit from a little pep talk! ​
