From Amazon.com: Kate White—New York Times bestselling author, editor in chief of Cosmopolitan for fourteen years, and motivational speaker—shares her gutsy secrets to success in this witty, straight-talking new career guide for women.
Whether you’ve just settled into your first work cubicle and have no clue how to go after the success you crave, or you’ve already got a sweet little office but you aren’t sure how to take your career to the next level, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This gives you all the secrets you need to become a success, go big with it, and then savor every second. It is jam-packed with insider strategies, interviews with women at the top of their game, and Kate’s advice from her own career running five major magazines (including one of the bestselling women’s magazines in the world, Cosmopolitan). She shows you how to break out of the pack, master the learning curve, make bold moves, and, ultimately, have the career you’ve always lusted for!
What I Say: I wish I would’ve had this book when I was first starting out in my career but I don’t think I would have appreciated it as much as I do now. It was refreshing to read and see what mistakes I’ve made along the way and what I’ve potentially done right. This is the perfect book for the newbie or the mid level or someone who wants to shake up the corporate world. Perfect Alpha Female approved reading material!
My favourite chapter is about Draining The Swamp. Taking steps to put this into practice for my career. You will just have to read it now to understand the power of that advice!
The book makes me want to corral Kate White in a boardroom and beg her to be my personal mentor.
