About the Book

Let’s Play SHESS is written to inspire and shake up women of all ages and backgrounds to take a chance, learn something new and believe in their abilities. This book provides a fresh entertaining approach to exploring every woman’s inquisitive mind and entrepreneurial passion by playing chess. The fascinating and realistic correlation between transferring the chess-playing skills into your real life is revealed, as well as the invaluable rewards and benefits you gain as a result. SHESS is an all-encompassing term which represents “your game of life.” All of the circumstances which exist in your life, including challenges relevant to business development represent your individual “battlefield.” Whether on a personal or professional level, SHESS relates how you think, react, analyze and solve problems, and make decisions. While this book is dedicated to women, everyone is certainly welcome to explore its wisdom.
