I think I was a bit long in the tooth for this book. Audience should be between 16-20 years old max. Overall, good tips for young to-be professionals.
Yes, her tips on social media were on point.
The performance was fine considering it was the author's voice. It was like listening to a friend or co-worker.
I really enjoyed this book. It was quite entertaining and quite informative. I love the way Aliza shared her personal experiences to make the book more relevant and poignant.
Included more interesting information
Something with more depth
This book is exactly like her TedTalk that you can find on youtube for free. Same Exact stories. pretty much the same exact wording. Honestly it's her Tedtalk but just more random nothing in between. Such a disappointment. Save yourself the money and listen to the ted talk for free.
This is a wonderful story of a great leader who is a lady. Great life lessons and wonderful tips that can really be applied in your career. I'm in the nuclear power industry which is far outside of the fashion industry, and yet I truly enjoyed listening to Aliza's story. It is one of my favorite books on leadership by a woman. The only area in which I wish Aliza had expanded on is how she dealt with having a family while excelling her career. She did touch on this area slightly, but only slightly towards the end of the book. I would love to read another book by her that would go into those struggles that women face.
What turned me off the most about the book was that she never seemed to do anything wrong. She always got it right, was perfect on her first attempt of anything and I find that hard to believe and totally unrelatable. Honestly it made the first portion a bit of a drag to get through. It did however get better toward the middle of the book when she did open up about issues she had experienced. Over all it's an ok read.
inspiring, educating, bad ass
when she stayed up all weekend arranging and organizing the shoes but really didn't have to.
no but totally wanted to
Loved this book very entertaining and learned a lot. I've now read it 2 times because the stories were funny and enjoyed it so much. This is a MUST DO
