'Protected by Purpose' Chronicles Dorinda Walker's Journey From Drug Dealer to Fortune 5

Exciting news from one of our Socially Conscious Fashionistas, Dorinda Walker, who has also written blog posts right here for Real Beauty Real Women! Here is Dorinda with our very own Founder Jacquelyn Aluotto, puckering up for change with our lipstick!

Motivational speaker and corporate executive, Dorinda Walker, who is currently a Vice President for a Fortune 50 Company, overcame the trials of dysfunctional childhood, domestic abuse and her own mental health issues to become an inspirational community change agent and an award-winning business leader.

In her first book, Protected by Purpose, Walker provides the success secrets that allowed her to transition from a path to prison as a teenager to becoming one of the fastest rising brands in corporate America. She tackles issues that affect many individuals today. Born into a dysfunctional family, battling addiction and its consequences on the family, mental illness, domestic violence, overcoming low self-esteem, and her father’s battle with AIDS, Walker experienced challenges that stop many in their tracks, but instead, served as a catalyst to success for her.
