Running a business is ultimately about freedom. And Cameron’s understanding of how companies can leverage the role of a COO can give you that freedom. I’ve known Cameron and the companies he’s helped scale up since 1998. The Second in Command is a must-read.

Role clarity is critical for the success of a CEO and COO working together. While the CEO is typically a visionary and should be working ON the business, the lines of responsibility can blur if they do not have a strong and capable #2 dedicated to owning the details and day-to-day …

I was asked to read an early copy of The Second in Command, and quickly realized . . . I’ve been NEEDING THIS BOOK! When it comes to taking companies from good to great, very few people have a track record like Cameron Herold.

“Alreen Haeggquist has written a brave and powerful book that documents the devastating effects of sexual abuse. Like many other child victims, she lived alone with the torment of the abuse throughout her childhood and young adult years. As horrific as Attorney Haeggquist’s story is, it is unfortunately all too common. Hopefully, Attorney Haeggquist’s extremely poignant book will encourage others to seek the help that can transform their lives.”

“Alreen Haeggquist speaks from her heart as she describes surviving childhood sexual abuse and moving into a life of hope and victory. This book is a wonderful resource for survivors, clinicians, and supporters of childhood sexual abuse survivors. It leaves readers with the message that there is life after surviving horrific experiences in childhood!”

One Out of Every Two
Women In The United States
Experience Sexual Abuse

Underreporting, victim blaming, and societal shaming mean the actual rate is even higher. But you are not a statistic. You are a survivor. This book is for you.

Sex abuse survivor Alreen Haeggquist shares her deeply personal story of childhood abuse and the steps she’s taken to overcome the long-lasting effects. She leads women who have experienced sexual violence to reclaim their innate power. Whether you have been harassed, abused, or assaulted, Fired Up outlines ways to grieve, heal, grow, and triumph from your trauma.

You can thrive in spite of assault. Fired Up explores the benefits that safe spaces, talk therapy, and speaking out provide. It addresses the perils of false healing and offers real solutions for survivors. You are not alone. It’s time to get Fired Up and decide what happens next.

TAKE A LOOK INSIDE

Nobody’s Talking and We’re Stronger Together

“You are the only one who can clean up the mess in your own mind, but you don’t have to do it alone.”

WHO IS
THIS FOR?

This book is for you. This book is for everyone. 

Sex abuse is incredibly common. In reality, over 50 percent of women and nearly 33 percent of men have experienced some form of sexual assault or sexual harassment in their lifetimes.

If you’re among those 50% of women or 33% of men, know this:

What happened to you was f*cked. This trauma impact ALL PARTS of your life (even when you ignore it). And while didn’t make the mess, you still have you clean it up. 

I wrote this book to share my truth. Even more, I wrote this book to empower others to Fuel Triumph From Trauma. 

If you haven’t experienced it yourself, there’s pretty much a 100% chance that someone you love and care about has been through it. This book will empower you to show up for your loved ones with compassion, understanding, and a fierce love to help them heal.

FIVE STARS FOR FIRED UP

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Alreen Haeggquist

Alreen Haeggquist wakes up each day with a fervent passion to advocate for women who suffer from sexual abuse, harassment, or discrimination. As a lawyer with 21 years of experience, she has recovered millions of dollars for clients in cases involving sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination. Alreen has an unwavering commitment to not allow wealth, power, influence, or status to exempt anyone from the rules of society.

Alreen‘s father was a terrifying presence who subjected her to sexual, physical, and verbal abuse. Despite knowing, her mother remained silent. Darkness loomed within Alreen, leading to depression and multiple suicide attempts. She remained quiet out of fear and shame, never telling a soul. Typical victim behavior.

Motivated by the pains of her childhood, Alreen became a lawyer in order to stand up for victims of abuse. She founded her own firm, Haeggquist & Eck,
LLP, in San Diego in 2008, which has helped hundreds
of other women stand up for themselves. Alreen has challenged high-profile entities including The Salk Institute, Trader Joe’s, Kaiser Permanente, the San Diego Sheriff‘s Department, and a President-elect.

Alreen’s core message is that, as a society, we need
to break the silence and help women stand up to
their abusers. In 2023, she broke her own silence and published her story in the book, Fired Up: Fueling Triumph from Trauma.
