Editorial Reviews

Review

"What makes a leader great? An executive assistant who makes sure he or she shows up at the right place at the right time well prepared. EAs are the wizards behind the curtain that make business magic happen. If you want to become a better leader, or a better EA, you will treasure this book." - Chester Elton, New York Times best-selling author of All In, What Motivates Me and The Carrot Principle.

"Two world business icons - Richard Branson and Donald Trump - have shared with Jan Jones how they stay ahead of the game.  In her book, Jan (a former top EA herself) provides an insider's look into how executives can give themselves the advantage of a Branson or a Trump, through a powerful working partnership with a top-level assistant."  - Khaled Baydoun, Founder & CEO, Bookurstar Middle East & North Africa Region

"Executives and assistants alike will benefit from the wisdom she  shares in this book". - Rick Olafsson, Co-Founder, Appy Entertainment, Inc.

"Executive assistants need to be positive, tenacious, resourceful, reliable and gracious. Luckily for executives, Jan Jones shows you how to get the best out of the most important asset you have in the office, your own assistant." - Dana Kyle, former assistant to Dr. Ken Blanchard; Knowledge Sharing Administrator, The Ken Blanchard Companies

"With this book, assistants worldwide will have access to Jan's expertise on how they can develop powerful partnerships with their executives, while increasing their own productivity and effectiveness." - Karen Beattie, Managing Director, The Growth Faculty, Australia

"Jan Jones has finally written the book so many executives and assistants have repeatedly asked her to write, about how executives and their assistants can work together effectively. This book will be invaluable to executives and assistants who want to maximize their productivity and develop their partnership." - Suzanne M. Kelly, MSOL; Editor, Urantia International Journal; Secretary, Urantia International Association, Texas Branch

"Whether you are an executive or an assistant, you will gain much from reading Jan's book". - Andrea Temel, Speaker Manager, Speakers For Success, Irvine, California.

"Jan holds herself to the highest standards. She's written this book so others can benefit from her actionable strategies, ideas and tips. I am one of Jan's biggest fans. Read her book now so that the results she creates for her clients will be yours." - Michael Hutchison, former VP of Marketing and Sales for Tony Robbins; Host, Dunn & Bradstreet TV show CredibilityLive.

"As Jan Jones' assistant at the Tony Robbins organization, I was the direct beneficiary of the invaluable advice she shares in this book. She showed me what being resourceful and remaining calm under extreme pressure truly meant. Executives and assistants who want to maximize their productivity should read this book carefully and follow its advice." -Veronique Franceus, former assistant to Jan Jones and Tony Robbins; Associate Learning Specialist, Bristol-Myers Squibb
