Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Nicole Lapin is back with a sassy and actionable guide empowering women to be the bosses of their own lives and careers.

You don't need dozens or hundreds of employees to be a boss, says financial expert and serial entrepreneur Nicole Lapin. Hell, you don't need even one. You just need to be confident, savvy, and ready to get out there and make your success happen. You need to find your inner boss bitch - your most confident, savvy, ambitious self - and own it.

A boss bitch is the she-ro of her own story. She is someone who takes charge of herself and her future and embraces being a boss in all senses of the word: whether as the boss of her own life, a boss at work, or the literal boss of her own company (or all three). Whichever she chooses, being a boss bitch isn't something to apologize for - it's something to be proud of!

We all have what it takes to be a boss bitch, says Lapin. The problem is we don't learn how to do it in school. Even if we study business, we're not getting enough real-deal business education. Until now. Here, Lapin draws on raw and often hilariously real stories from her own career and experiences starting businesses - the good, the bad, and the ugly - to show what it means to be a boss in 12 easy steps. In her refreshingly honest and relatable style, she first shows how to embrace the boss of you mentality by seizing the power that comes from believing in yourself and expanding your personal skillset. Then she offers candid, no-nonsense advice on how to kill it as the boss at work, whether you have a high-up role or not. And finally, for those who want to take the plunge as an entrepreneur, she lays out the nuts and bolts of how to be the boss of your own business - from raising money and getting it off the ground to hiring a kickass staff and dealing with office drama to turning a profit.

Being a rock star in your career is something that should be worn as a badge of honor. Here, Lapin shows how to crush it in our careers like a boss bitch!

    Story
    "Inspiring"
    Would you listen to Boss Bitch again? Why?

    Yes! I’ve already listened to some of the steps twice


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Why Nicole Lapin of course.


    What does Nicole Lapin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Yes, I enjoyed listening to her and found it motivating while I multitasked my to-do list at the same time. I also wish I had the book so I can actually see and visualize the steps.


    If you could give Boss Bitch a new subtitle, what would it be?

    You don't have to be either, to be both!


    Any additional comments?

    This books is truly inspiring, providing women the tools they need to be confident in their career choices. Not only does it touch on the best ways to be professional while making your mark, she provides funny relatable stories of her mishaps. I especially like that Nicole shares how much money she's made, as it can often be considered a taboo topic and I really wish people would get over that.

    "Listen to a sample first"

    This is a long book, and while the content may be valuable, the author's distracting narration is just too much. It's like listening to a teenager for hours and hours and hours. This is one of the few books that I just cannot finish. Possibly better in print?

    "a business savvy bestie bitch"

    I've read a few books geared at female entrepreneurs and this by far is the best. She walks you through the specifics, the sexy stuff and the not so sexy sides of business. It's not fluff. It's the same way your best friend would lift you up but tell it to you like it is. If you want to start a business or build your career read this book.

    "Good Content; Obnoxious Tone"

    The context was very good. However the reading was obnoxious and the overall tone of the book was quite obnoxious as well. Often, I was annoyed by the add-on comments that seemed rather unnecessary, just so that the author could add on a "bitch" somewhere.

    Story
    "You can curse with style"
    Would you listen to Boss Bitch again? Why?

    Parts of it, yes. This book helped me, as a successful Boss Bitch, understand my employees. I learned about their # 1 worry at work and how to effectively communicate praise. How anyone can be Boss Bitch of their own domain. How to understand and confront workplace gossip. Why we need Sheroes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Boss Bitch?

    The story when Nicole pretended to know about diving to impress.


    Any additional comments?

    A great writer. Knowledgeable about business and getting where you want to be.

    Story
    "This was painful to listen too..."

    While the book itself may be good, I might never know...listening to her phony, over-the-top inflection was downright PAINFUL. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to pick this back up 3 times now and I cannot get past her shrill and drippy voice. It physically makes me cringe.

    I think I'm just going to have to pick up a physical copy to get any value from this book. It proves to me that sometimes the author just shouldn't narrate.

    Kudos to anyone who can make it through this audiobook without developing a case of violent road rage.

    "Motivating!"

    Nicole is motivating and fun to listen to! She's smart and funny and shares endless ideas! There's a lack of spiritual inspiration in her words of wisdom, but I have other books for that. Nicole is all business and she's a wealth of knowledge!!

    Story
    "Only got through half the book"
    What would have made Boss Bitch better?

    If I was able to finish it. The audible book stopped working less than halfway through.


    What was most disappointing about Nicole Lapin’s story?

    That I did not get to finish hearing about it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Wouldn't know, couldn't finish the book


    What character would you cut from Boss Bitch?

    I only know a few, since I didn't get to finish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm really glad I didn't pay any money for this, and used a credit for doing the free trail. However, since I had a shitty experience just on the trial, I will not continue using this service, or buy anymore books. I'll just continue buying the actual book, and reading it myself.

    "MEH..."

    I was really excited to listen to this book... but then, I hit play. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed listening to the first few chapters of the book but it was just so basic. I didn't feel like it would add any value or provide new insight - it's all common sense. Thus, I never finished nor plan to.

    I would not recommend this book.
