Former US secretary of state Madeleine Albright once said that women’s careers aren’t linear: instead, they zigzag. Public relations maven and journalist Wendy Sachs goes a step further by explaining how women can create their own success by zigging and zagging with purpose. With today’s fluctuations in markets and revolutions in industries, everyone has to be a hybrid, with multiple talents, projects and goals. Women consistently underestimate their abilities and diminish their accomplishments in an atmosphere where confidence is especially important. With amusing, harrowing and emboldening stories of women at all stages of multiple careers, Sachs reveals the tips that have worked for other women covering how to cultivate confidence, manage obstacles and keep pushing for the life you want. getAbstract recommends this fun, inspiring look at how to handle change with confidence to women considering a career shift or a new endeavor.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why women must drive their own success,
- What steps will expand your opportunities and
- How to overcome behaviors that hold you back.
