This book helped energize and renew my passion for a career that I have been in for many years. Reading it has made me more mindful of my career; put me on the path to refine soft skills; and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and take calculated risks. I am happier and more self-confident at work and am adding more value to a company to which I am sincerely devoted. Originally I picked up the book to read for inspiration, I now carry it in my briefcase to reference and share with others.
Whether you are looking for a new career, tools to recharge your current career, and/or motivating stories...do yourself a favor and get this book today!
I had the good fortune of hearing her speak at a women's luncheon this year. I came away feeling energized and believing that I could succeed.
I've implemented many of her suggestions in my life - assembling my own board of directors, remembering that positivity is infectious, paying it forward - and I've reaped results. That attitude has made a HUGE different in my productivity and my ability to try new things.
Buy this book and then get a copy for a friend. You won't be sorry!
This book is empowering because it reinforces your ability to make choices that play to your strengths and experiences. It also helps you remember that sometimes change can cause fear, but when fear from change is present, opportunity is usually right around corner. I appreciated how Caroline stressed the importance of women helping other women succeed in the workplace -- which will undoubtedly inspire readers to not only be a mentee, but to also serve as a mentor to other women.
This book is an easy-read and offers very practical advice that can be easily implemented!
