Starting with a chapter on Confidence, Marshawn Evans weaves stories from her own life and its struggles with issues that women, young and older, face in corporate America, entrepreneurship, and life. With chapters on staying the course, differences in gender communication, networking, developing your personal brand, and more, this book is like having your own personal development coach at your fingertips.
What I really love, is that the book is written so conversationally and how easy I was able to relate my personal situation to the stories shared in the book. Secondly, the wrap-ups at the end of each chapter, keeping the important points fresh in your mind. And lastly, the worksheets at the end of each chapter, which really make and keep you accountable. Who knew it was so hard to think of five meaningful words that actually described me and why... I'm still working on two more!!
This book has really helped me begin to get on track and I recommend it to anyone who needs guidance at any stage of their lives. I know that the book is written with women in mind, but I honestly think men can learn a lot from its content as well. It's definitely a book to keep, revisit, lend to friends, and give as a gift. I am on my way to maximizing my potential and living out my purpose.
