Work It, Girl! The Black Woman's Guide To Professional Success

For Black women, achieving professional success can seem like an impossible mountain to climb. But, it doesn't have to be, IF you have the right attitude AND the right climbing tools. In Work It, Girl! The Black Woman's Guide to Professional Success, you'll get just that. As a Black woman, you will realize that you DO have the strength to succeed. This guide will keep it real by acknowledging the hundreds of 'justifications' we use to stay stuck where we are, but it will also debunk the myths of career choice (or lack thereof). It will recognize that we all have limitations, yet it will present 'doable' work options for Sisters who think there are none. Finally, it will not preach to the choir, but instead describe practical steps you can take to get where you want to be---even if you are not yet sure where that is! When frustration about your professional standing makes you want to sing the words of a classic gospel song: "You don't have to move the mountain, but give me the strength to climb," you'll love reading about the experiences of incredible Sisters who not only found their strength to climb, but who also enjoyed the ascent. We know we can't move the mountains, but we want to prepare you for a wonderful climb. So, let's work it, girl!! "Featuring advice and insight from Women Who Work It! including Maria Dowd (Founder of African American Women on Tour); Valorie Burton (Life Coach, Author & Entrepreneur); Crystal McCrary Anthony (Television Host, Author & Attorney); Monica Kaufman Pearson (Television Anchor); Kimberla Lawson Roby (Bestselling Author); Lisa Price (CEO & Founder of Carol's Daughter Inc.); Michele Jones (Command Sergeant Major U.S. Army Reserve); and Janie Victoria Ward (Professor & Author)."
