11 Steps to Self-Sufficiency

Take Action by Taking the Steps

"Grab hold of your life by keeping your spirit intact. It is not just important, it is necessary. Consider it a survival tactic."

11 Steps to Self-Sufficiency is a book that has a focus on guiding foster care youth and young adults toward an adulthood of self-sufficiency. Ms. Mclean shares her story and tips on how she was capable of sustaining herself while having to endure the weight of a heavy load (trials, tribulations, turmoil, and trauma).


These 11 steps are not in chronological order. The idea is to call on these methods whenever you see fit. This book is a first step in finding ways to heal yourself while working toward a place of self-love, self-acceptance and SELF-SUFFICIENCY!

Reader Reviews

"I love this book it’s like years of therapy without the huge bill. I cry over the chapter about releasing and forgiving, understanding its not for them but for me. This book is not just therapy but it helps you to look at yourself and evaluate your life, to make changes , to be a better you. This book is all about self love and being a champion and a cheerleader for yourself. This is awesome Tameka, you are giving a voice to so many who needs it."
