AMAZING

This is such an amazing book with practical and useful tips for every stage of your career. I have used these applications, still use these applications and give advice to female friends and family from this book. I actually bought a few hard copies to give to my daughter, mom and daugher in law. Kate has a great story telling ability and does just enough name dropping to make it interesting. I have listened to this book several times and each time I absorb a little something more. If you are female and you are working you need this book! If you are looking for a job, you need this book. If you are in school, you need this book. There are many valuable life lessons to be learned here!

Not enough hours in the day to possibly do what she recommends

Was uplifting at first then made me feel like I wasn't doing a thing right.

Fantastic Advice!

Wish you had a wildly successful female mentor who would share practical strategies to guide you as you passionately pursue your dreams? The book came at just the right time for me! Will enthusiastically recommend to anyone who is serious about personal growth, building professional confidence, or chasing the illusive work/life balance.
