Description

Never Give Up

"This book is your new best friend on a bad day." --Vanessa Van Edwards, bestselling author of Captivate

"It's one thing to say 'never give up ' but it's another thing to actually live through the pain of rejection and disappointment that makes you question your work and your worth. When that happens, read this book. It will get you through." --Nicole Antoinette, host of Real Talk Radio

Life involves overcoming 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, a job interview that goes nowhere, 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, open this book.

Defeat and getting through it. Each chapter is filled with honesty, humor, and words of motivation to help you stay motivated, keep marching, and never give up―even when things feel incredibly tough. Inside, you'll find stories by professional authors, chefs, lawyers, Broadway performers, business consultants, and more―each describing one of the worst moments in their entire career, and how they got through it to achieve their career goal.

In You're Going to Survive, you'll find:

  • Heartfelt encouragement
  • Inspiring true stories
  • Tips of how to overcome setbacks
  • And so much more

If you loved books such as You Turn, Mind Over Matter, or Crush Your Career, then You're Going to Survive is the perfect addition to your book collection
