Publisher's Summary

Life involves adversity: No matter what kind of career you’ve chosen, you’re going to deal with discouragement, frustration, and situations that are, shall we say, “less than ideal”. It could be a hysterical client who’s demanding a refund. Or a book that gets rejected…48 times and counting. Or a job interview that goes nowhere. Or watching your best friend get the exciting promotion that you wanted. Or a vicious one-star review that rattles your self-esteem and makes you question your talent, your identity, everything. When that moment arrives, listen to this audiobook.

Defeat and getting through it: Inside, you’ll find inspiring true stories from all kinds of people - from authors, chefs, lawyers, website designers, and Broadway performers to personal stylists, jazz musicians, business consultants, nonprofit fundraisers, and more - each describing one of the worst moments in their entire career, and how they got through it.

How to stay motivated and never give up: Each chapter is filled with honesty, humor, and heartfelt encouragement to help you stay motivated, keep marching, and never give up - even when things feel incredibly tough. No matter what’s going on in your career right now, this isn’t the end of your story. You’re going to survive.

Horrific narration. Unlistenable.

This is the first time I've ever left a bad review on an audiobook.

I came across Alexandra on the Rachel Rodgers podcast and she sounded so smart, sassy, passionate and interesting. I purchased this book immediately thereafter hoping to learn more about this amazing business woman and her insights.

Much to my dismay, this book is narrated by Karen Krause and not Alexandra. Karen Kraus sounds like she's performing a new age guided hypnosis using a bizarre, grating robotic cadence.

There is complete a absence of passion, emotion and connection conveyed by this narrator.

I feel lulled into a state of sedated apathy whilst simultaneously experiencing dread about an imminent alien invasion. Thus, the book is insufferable to listen to and sadly, I can't focus on the great information contained within.

I will buy future books where Alexandra narrates or hires another narrator to share this great writing and wisdom.
