Publisher's Summary

Tricia and Antoinette Clarke - best friends, Power Twins, and Boss Ladies - show you how to take your work and life to the Next Level.

"Aspiring Boss Ladies in any field should pay attention." (Gabrielle Union-Wade, actress, activist, and New York Times best-selling author of We’re Going to Need More Wine)

As African-American women who have climbed their way to the highest ranks of the media world, Tricia and Antoinette have learned that to win when the deck is stacked against you, you need to ditch the old Status Quo rules. Whether you’re starting your career, wondering why you’re not further along, or looking to pivot, you’ve got to double down on yourself, and you’ve got to cultivate a tribe of people who will double down on you, too.

Now, they share their wisdom with the next generation of Boss Ladies looking to up their game. If you’re tired of getting second-class rewards for first-class work and you’re ready to be respected for who you are, Double Down will give you the tools and tactics to go all in on your dreams. Among the lessons you’ll learn: 

  • Don’t emulate, originate: Identify your unique superpowers to start from a place of strength. 
  • Don’t stay in place, move into white space: To stand out, use your superpowers to do something no one else does. 
  • Don’t just compete, play the long game: Work backward from where you want to end up - aim high, go far. 
  • Don’t inherit your tribe, build it: Actively cultivate a crew of people who will push you to go after your most audacious goals (and set new ones).  

Packed with strategies and solutions, as well as stories of other badass Boss Ladies including Ayesha Curry, Carly Cushnie, Anne Wojcicki, and many others, this remixed rule book will help you see the power in yourself - and double down on it.

Critic Reviews

"I admire Antoinette and Tricia’s bond, work ethic, and drive. Their book is proof that 'doubling down' on our authentic selves will spark success and joy - not only in our careers, but also in our friendships, families, and communities." (Ayesha Curry, entrepreneur, TV personality, and best-selling author of The Seasoned Life)

"The support of black women, owning their power and setting the standard and example for the next generation, is so important and necessary. What Antoinette and Tricia are sharing through their empowering book is exactly what we need at this very moment and time. To reinforce and motivate the next generation to follow suit." (Misty Copeland, American Ballet Theatre principal dancer and New York Times best-selling author of Ballerina Body and Life in Motion)

"If there’s one thing I respect the most about any entrepreneur, it’s their hustle - their work ethic. Antoinette and Tricia are proven hustlers, with the success to show for it. With Double Down, they’ve generously let us in on their secrets." (Daymond John, New York Times best-selling author of The Power of Broke and Rise and Grind)

"Antoinette and Tricia are First in Class Badass Boss Ladies. The personal and professional stories they share in Double Down speak volumes to all of us. The lessons learned will be my go-to as I continue to mentor the next generation of leaders. This book is the platinum standard, and most important, the advice is drawn from real life experiences.... Truly inspiring." (Jo Ann Ross, president and chief advertising revenue officer at CBS Corporation)

Love it!

I love this book! it is very timely for my life. This book is not just about their personal stories of success but it shows you how they overcame obstacles and they are showing how you can do the same. For me, there is no better way to reach people than to show that you've walked in someone else's shoes.

Good Story Wanted More

The Clarke sisters did a very good job telling their story. But I was looking for more more of a how to guide what steps to follow. If that’s what you’re looking for this is not it. Their experiences help you to look at what you were doing and what you have done, and how you may want to change things for the better. Some of the terminology they use like North Star and SuperPowers point other books that they possibly have read. Personally I have picked up the Northstar book and now I am reading it. I plan to get the other book too. This is a good book to get you started on where you need to start looking to create a better journey for yourself
