The Sculpting Life Above Average Series – Empowering Women

The Sculpting Life Above Average series focus’s on helping women build their credibility and influence and to tell their story, live their truth, be believed, and guard their health and wellbeing in the process. The series also works to help Black women and girls rise up, reclaim their power and improve their overall wellness.

Raye Mitchell Esq.

The Sculpting Life Above Average series is a reflection of Mitchell’s dream to help women merge leadership and health and wellness tools to live a life above average and stand out for their unique contributions regardless of age, size, race, gender, class or educational accomplishments.


Current books by Mitchell include:

Invisible No More. Empowering Young Black Women and Girls to Rise Up as Leaders

When They Go Low, We Go High: How Women of Color Master the Art of Persuasion to Win Big Battles

How Women Negotiate from a Position of Strength


Raye believes, “We continue to witness the power of brave women coming forward to tell their stories and deliver credible narratives about their life experiences.  Credibility is power. Credibility is also the currency that buys a seat at the leadership table and an audience to hear your story and to be believed. When women are believed, we can move mountains, change outcomes, and upend the status quo.

My work is inspired by the need to help women in general, Black women and girls in particular, find personal peace and still be effective in this hyper-conflict driven environment.  It is really about wellness and moving forward despite setbacks, setups or disappointments. Whether looking to be stronger leaders, dealmakers, negotiators, or resolve conflict dealing with a #MeToo crisis, being a sexual assault survivor, or just being the target of being marginalized because of size, skin color, or intellect, women are using their credibility power to tell their stories, be heard, and define a new movement of change.”
