You Are the One You're Looking For… encourages today's woman to
acknowledge your personal power and use it to create the life you want!

Chicago – November 2011: 65% of African American women are single. In fact, statistics show that African Americans are the most uncoupled demographic in the U.S. Many women of colour have spent years trying to ‘find’ the perfect mate, having the tendency to make their men extremely fascinating and powerful, instead of acknowledging her own personal power and finding the perfection in herself. In her new book, author, Elayne Marchbanks encourages women to embrace the qualities that make her special and unique and use them as an asset to attract partners who appreciate her uniqueness and reflect it. You Are the One You're Looking For… is based on the premise that if you don’t know who you are, you won’t get what you want!
