All around us, older women flourish in industry, entertainment, and politics. Do they know something that we don’t, or are we all just trying to figure it out? For so many of us, our hearts and minds still feel that we are twenty-something young women who can take on the world. But in our bodies, the flexibility and strength that were once taken for granted are far from how we remember them. Every day we have to rise above the creaky joints and achy knees to earn the opportunity of moving through the world with a modicum of grace. Yet we do rise, because it’s a privilege to grow old, and every single day is a gift. Peter Pan’s mantra was “never grow up”; our collective mantra should be “never stop growing.” This collection of user-friendly stories, essays, and philosophies invites readers to celebrate whatever age they are with a sense of joy and purpose and with a spirit of gratitude.

Cutting Onions shares restaurant executive Bobby Shaw’s journey from starting out as an hourly employee at McDonald’s to becoming a senior executive in the restaurant industry, what he learned along the way, and how it changed the course of his life and countless others.
The importance of culture is referenced by many leaders trying to build an organization, but it isn’t always reflected in the day-to-day actions of that organization. This leadership guide chronicles the journey of one leader through one of the most challenging and rewarding industries, eventually inspiring hundreds of other leaders along the way to do more than they ever thought possible. Bobby dives into the challenges he overcame and how, along the way, he learned the importance of building a strong culture in which people wanted more for each other than they wanted for themselves. Cutting Onions tells the story of a restaurant that figured it out and tied the results they achieved right back to their culture, represented by the simple, everyday things that, as all leaders learn, are the most important.
