Author, motivational speaker and North Carolina native, Niya Brown Matthews wrote “The Boss In You”  to empower and educate women and young girls (especially Blacks) on how to overcome their life obstacles, personal setbacks and various challenges which they encounter in order to become successful in their careers, relationships and/or personal lives.

Matthews is a successful businesswoman and is also a highly sought after to speak about overcoming Cancer twice and being the mother of a teen daughter who has been bullied because of her daughter’s medical condition of Dwarfism.

She’s also married to retired NFLwide receiver Super Bowl Champion Eric Matthews (Packers) and is also a proud alum of East Carolina University where she earned a Bachelor’s in Business.  She and her husband are very active giving back to the Atlanta community and has hosted a huge Breast Cancer fund-raiser event for the last few years to celebrate being Cancer FREE.

I talk to Niya about why she wrote the book, what she wants women and young ladies to take from this book and how being a 2X Cancer Survivor motivated her to write the book.
