About the Book
Become the Sharp Woman you were meant to be
Women have unbelievable intuition skills. We notice when a loved one is “off”. We feel the vibe or energy of a place. We have amazing instincts that help us take care of others. Why has no one taught us to use those skills for our personal safety?
Just because it’s always been done a certain way, doesn’t make it right. For years, the world of self-defense has been taught from a physical point of view. What if there’s a better way? What if there’s a way to use our natural strengths and abilities to avoid a physical altercation through situational awareness? The statistics on violence committed against women have remained stagnant for decades. The information needed to make a positive change in women’s lives has been stuck in silos for individuals in specific threat management fields. The military, law enforcement, executive protection, risk management, etc.
Sharp Women breaks down everyday life situations women face where their intuition alarm bells have gone off, but they weren’t quite sure why. She guides you through embracing your best self-defense weapon, your intuition. Kelly Sayre empowers women to live life on their own terms using non-physical, proactive situational awareness tactics that expose and avoid threatening situations before they happen, so you can go forward with confidence and live life unafraid.
It’s time to make a change and The Diamond Arrow Group is here to lead the charge.

Who is a Sharp Woman?
She’s not perfect. She doesn’t have all her shit together. She makes mistakes, falls down, cries a bit, and gives herself time to feel all the feels. When the sun comes up, she dusts herself off, stretches, and gets back to figuring things out. She trusts her intuition and has confidence that it will always let her know when something is off in her surroundings. She embraces her fears and uses them as motivators to improve her life and overcome those fears. She is made up of many different wild and wonderful things, and she strives to live life on her terms every day. She is a Sharp Woman.
"A lot of good advice in this book"
“I bought this book for my college age daughter but decided to read it before I sent it to her. I am glad I did. There is a lot of good advice in this book and it is interesting to read. After my daughter reads it, my girlfriend is going to read it too.”
– Amazon Review
"I loved your book!"
“I loved your book! I thought I would be learning only about situational awareness and personal safety, two very important subjects, but I thought I already knew most of what I’d be reading about. I’ve read countless book on keeping safe in the past. Your book was so, so much more. You gave detailed examples on HOW to become aware of surroundings and personal circumstances in real life. I wish I had read something like your book decades ago when I was trying (and mainly failing) to navigate boundary issues with friends, family, and employers. I learned so much I can apply to my life today. I also loved your personal stories. I feel I have much more power and confidence as I venture out into this new word I find myself in. Thank you so much for writing this book.”

"a must read for every woman who wants to take responsibility for her own safety"
“Sharp Women is a must read for every woman who wants to take responsibility for her own safety. Kelly Sayre explains why trusting our intuition is critical to staying safe and why it’s our best self defense weapon. She breaks down many different scenarios and situations where we might find ourselves in our day to day lives and shows how to be aware of our surroundings. The Daily Habits suggested at the end of each chapter are very practical and useful in learning situational awareness. This is the first book I’ve read on situational awareness that is written by a woman and from a woman’s perspective which is extremely helpful.”

"an invaluable resource for women"
“Kelly Sayre is just like you, or my sister, or my wife. But there is a notable difference. She decided to take ownership over her personal safety and began a journey investigating the world of personal security for women. Life is full of risk; there is no way to perfectly safeguard your life. But you can learn to make yourself a much less attractive target by being responsible for your own security. This outstanding book distills Kelly’s findings into simple, easy-to-follow tips and tools. It is an invaluable resource for women who want to take ownership of their personal security and, in doing so, perhaps become more empowered in other areas of life. Written by a female for other females, it fills a needed place in the security market. You will be safer if you apply what she shares.”
Doug Patteson, former CIA officer and security/intelligence consultant
"A must-read for women"
“As a female and a security professional, I was thrilled to read Kelly’s new book and discover someone who actually gets it when it comes to violence prevention. She understands the proactive thought process and real situational tactics that will keep you safe. A must-read for women who desire to take action and enhance their personal safety!”
Denida Zinxhiria Grow, CEO, Athena Worldwide Protective and Intelligence Services
great examples of what to do"
