Description

Megan Alexander is a national correspondent for Inside Edition and a special correspondent for Thursday Night Football on CBS. In Faith in the Spotlight she shares her practical advice for achieving excellence in career, faith, and family and gives us an honest look at thriving in a secular industry as a believer.

At just thirty-five, Megan Alexander has successfully built a career in the competitive television industry without compromising her faith and values. But while she has experienced the triumphs of that dynamic entertainment lifestyle, she knows how difficult it can be for Christian women to get ahead in their careers and simultaneously navigate their roles at home and in their faith. She offers a fresh and millennial-centered perspective on how to build a successful career while being married and raising a family.

In Faith in the Spotlight, Megan addresses how to succeed in your career while also staying true to one’s beliefs. She gives inspiring, real-life examples of why women can—and should—lead in the workplace. She also shares valuable insight and behind-the-scenes stories from her interviews with famous athletes, media moguls, entertainers, and more. Drawing on her experience, she offers advice for plotting a career path, negotiating job contracts, competing and succeeding with the best and the brightest, and navigating difficult situations while maintaining strong faith and values. She also writes about the importance of mentors, coping with rejection, handling high-pressure situations, and the ways being a Christian fulfills her role in a superficial society. Faith in the Spotlight is an intelligent, thought-provoking book about achieving success, and will leave anyone empowered to dive into their career!
