Do you feel daily pressure to keep pushing yourself even when you're stressed and exhausted?
It's time to leave Superwoman in the movies, where she belongs, and say hello to being a Super Woman--the best, most productive and balanced version of the hero you already are.
For years--maybe your entire life--you've been told that success means having it all and doing it all. But working more and harder is holding you back, not moving you forward. In Becoming Super Woman, New York Times bestselling author Nicole Lapin redefines what it means to be a woman who "has it all"--and shows you how to find lasting success by your own definition, on your own terms.
Nicole candidly shares her own story of career burnout and an emergency hospitalization that prompted her to take her mental health seriously for the first time ever. Along the way, she discovered that not only was this priority shift not a defeat, it was the key to unlocking even greater achievements.
In her third and most personal book yet, Nicole lays out an actionable, 12-step plan to guide you in taking control and becoming the hero of your own story, with the skills it takes to be a real Super Woman--skills we should (but often don't) learn growing up, from productivity hacks to boundary setting. She makes the case that the real secret to success doesn't hinge on the hustle or degrees you have but in "putting on your own oxygen mask before helping others." In fact, self-care is the biggest asset or liability in our careers--when it's on-point it can help us soar, and when it's neglected it can bring us down faster than anything else.
Entertaining, honest, and life-changing, Becoming Super Woman shows you how to banish burnout, ward off a breakdown, and achieve true balance ... finally.
