Emma Isaacs forgot to draw up her life plan. She doesn’t have a list of five-year goals, and she doesn’t believe in work-life balance. Yet somehow she’s managed to found a multimillion-dollar global organization, become a highly sought-after speaker and media commentator, and be recognized as a prominent voice in women’s leadership―all while raising six young children.
So how does she do it all? She dives in headfirst and wings it.
Women are notorious over-preparers and underestimators when it comes to their own readiness to try something new. But as Emma teaches, what most often holds us back are our own fears, excuses, and doubts.
With her revolutionary manifesto, Winging It, Emma has written a rallying cry for all women to “do the things that scare you, build your wealth, make an impact, fail lots, and get up and try again.”
Through hilarious stories, targeted prompts, and timeless advice, Emma will inspire you to get clear on what really matters and go after your dreams, one messy step at a time. Get ready to stop hiding behind the safe option or the perfect plan―and start winging it.
Emma shows us that often the only thing holding us back is ourselves; that you can follow your dreams; and that there’s no reason not to start doing so right now.
Emma’s energy and enthusiasm for business shine brightly.

I started a company at age 24, built a global skincare brand, became a US Presidential Ambassador and had my children over the age of 40 – all because I never knew I couldn’t do it. I was Winging It all along! I never had a clue how to do it until I did, and now I know I’m not alone. Emma doesn’t just make it all look so easy – she charges into her life as a great big adventure and we can’t help but jump in too! Her energy is contagious, her optimism infectious and her ‘no holds barred’ bravery makes us all determined to NEVER shrink ourselves no matter what the odds are.
