Boss Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan to Take Charge of Your Career – Nicole Lapin (Crown Business)
With her first book, Rich Bitch bestselling author, television host and finance guru Nicole Lapin helped you get your financial house in order. Now she is back with a new book to help you get your career on the right track and help you make some informed choices when it comes to what direction you choose to take when it comes to life and work.
In Boss Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan to Take Charge of Your Career, Lapin avoids the tried and true resume building and doles out advice in three categories:
- · Section one – figuring out the career path you want to take; this one is short (20 pages) and to the point and helps build the foundation you will work from.
- · Section two – boils down to how to “act” like the boss in your chosen field…even if you don’t have the title. No this isn’t about being bossy, it’s about developing a take charge attitude; branding and pitching yourself, interview skills, goal development that keeps you on track and how to look the part. These are a solid mix of hard and soft skills that aren’t often taught.
- · Section three – how to be the boss of your own business if you choose that path. Lapin offers the right insights into how to identify the business that’s right for you and even how to get the ball rolling even when you’re not necessarily ready to make the full-time leap. She hits a home run with her advice about what it takes to truly make your side hustle work and the commitment you need to be successful.
While Lapin’s often gruff and gritty style; hard to believe some of the stuff that comes out of this nice young lady’s mouth, may put some people off, but, I think she brings a no nonsense approach that delivers a reality based punch to the advice she doles out.
