An empowering career guide featuring bold advice from 50 high-profile
women on how to succeed in work, leadership and life

You don't have to be a #Girlboss or "lean in" to have a dream career and live a life you love.

In Work It, CEO of Likeable Media and popular podcast host Carrie Kerpen shares lessons from her career and an "advisory board" of powerful women in a wide range of industries to help women everywhere make their aspirations a reality. Packed with actionable tips and stories from the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, Aliza Licht, and Reshma Saujani, this inspiring book reveals their counterintuitive secrets for success, including:

- How and when to say "no" - whether it's a dream job that just isn't the right cultural fit or a low salary proposal, as well as when to say "yes"

- How to make your career work for you and your family rather than the other way around

- How to develop your own FAB PAB (Fabulous Personal Advisory Board) - a support network of women - rather than work with a single mentor

- The importance of talking openly about money - from job offer negotiations and cash flow management, to fundraising venture capital dollars

With advice on everything from mastering social media to navigating office politics and the seemingly impossible work/life balance, Work It arms every woman with the courage and skills to achieve success and happiness on her terms.
