Format: Paperback
I read through this book rather quickly, but then I went back and did the real work, which is a life assessment and a guide to making your dreams work for you. No one ever asked me what I was willing to sacrifice to make my dreams happen, but this book did. No one had ever given me a step by step process from taking my dreams from the potential phase to the making it happen phase, but this book did. If you are in need of directon or just want in on some of the secrets of successful people this is the book for you. I am now ready to start writing my first novel, 2 children under the age of 5 years old and a husband are my assets now, not impediments from my goal. I now have a plan to make it work and my only job is to work the plan. Thank you ladies and I will Work It.

I didn't find this book very helpful. I felt like I could have written the book given I've been in the professional arena for over 20 years. I've even used some of these techniques as a working teenager.

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for Black women, trying to achieve professional success? Have you ever wanted a road map or an outline to highlight the things needed to acquire and advance a career? Every mountain can be climbed, but you must have the right attitude and the proper tools. WORK IT, GIRL! THE BLACK WOMAN'S GUIDE TO PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS gives you that attitude and those tools. Black women will realize and accept that with proper planning, they to have the fortitude and the presence to succeed in any arena.

WORK IT, GIRL! acknowledges the hundreds of 'reasons' that keep us stuck where we are, but it also forces us(women) to take a good look at the reality or lack thereof surrounding the myths about women and career choices. Yes, we all have limitations, but should we allow those constraints to stifle our ambitions or abort our progress? If you are the least bit doubtful about your potential as a woman, WORK IT, GIRL! will help dispel negative assumptions and show you that positive options do exist. As the authors share their passion, they share stories about the experiences of unstoppable sisters who found the strength to climb, and who appreciated the effort it took to ascend. There are practical step by step instructions and several written exercises to help us stay the course. This book is a giant step toward mental preparation for a rewarding climb.

WORK IT, GIRL! was born from a thwarted effort to publish a story about the success, the 'striving gene', of Black women. McBride and Cole's give colorful views of women in all walks of life, to inspire and challenge readers.
