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. The heart of this book is about making conscious and deliberate choices, about accepting that our life's work doesn't just enrich and fulfill us, but makes a difference to others. McBride and Cole offer the challenge for Black women to dream, big dreams and use their inner force to make it happen. They take readers from a mindset, to a mantra, to a mission, to a ministry. Are you ready?
