Description

An empowering career guide featuring bold advice from 50 high-profile
women on how to succeed in work, leadership and life
You don't have to be a #Girlboss or "lean in" to have a dream career and live a life you love.
In Work It, CEO of Likeable Media and popular podcast host Carrie Kerpen shares lessons from her career and an "advisory board" of powerful women in a wide range of industries to help women everywhere make their aspirations a reality. Packed with actionable tips and stories from the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, Aliza Licht, and Reshma Saujani, this inspiring book reveals their counterintuitive secrets for success, including:

- How and when to say “no” – whether it’s a dream job that just isn’t the right cultural fit or a low salary proposal, as well as when to say “yes"

- How to make your career work for you and your family rather than the other way around

- How to develop your own FAB PAB (Fabulous Personal Advisory Board) – a support network of women – rather than work with a single mentor

- The importance of talking openly about money – from job offer negotiations and cash flow management, to fundraising venture capital dollars

With advice on everything from mastering social media to navigating office politics and the seemingly impossible work/life balance, Work It arms every woman with the courage and skills to achieve success and happiness on her terms.

        September 4, 2017
        Kerpen, host of the podcast All the Social Ladies, gives practical advice for women who want to pursue their dream careers. The book is divided into three parts, devoted to career planning, life decisions, and common fears. In each one, readers receive advice not only from Kerpen but also from 50 powerful women interviewed for the book, including realtor Barbara Corcoran; controversial ad exec Julie Roehm, who was fired from her position at Walmart for allegations of misconduct; and Reshma Saujani, who founded the Girls Who Code nonprofit. These women provide businesspeople with advice such as how to raise funds when starting a business, how important it is to follow your passions and gut instincts, and how to learn from failure. Exercise sheets are also provided in several chapters to allow readers to see how well they measure up to the interviewees’ recommendations. While few of the tips here are particularly novel, the touching stories of professional women will resonate with those currently struggling to achieve their goals in the business world and will encourage them to keep going.

        December 1, 2017
        Social media agency owner and host of the podcast, All the Social Ladies, Kerpen argues that women seek career advice (and success) differently and proceeds to prove her thesis via an amalgamation of great tips from powerful women, personal stories, a few case histories, and five or so exercises for readers to complete. The tips and anecdotes, quite frankly, overshadow the rest of the book. Like the time Kerpen approached Meredith Vieira on a plane and when she took a cross-country, round-trip flight in one day to meet Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg for a meeting that was postponed. Kerpen also includes her take on often-heard wisdom, such as act like every single person could be your hiring manager, and her perspective on fast failures, taken in part from a conversation with Julie Roehm about her nine-month Walmart tenure. The book's last section is devoted to the philosophy of being true to yourself, whether that involves cultivating your personal image or ramping up your confidence. A refresher for those temporarily on the down and out as well as new workforce entrants.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
