Fearless and Free: How Smart Women Pivot–and Relaunch Their Careers

Fearless and Free: How Smart Women Pivot–and Relaunch Their Careers

Product Description
Unapologetic . . . and unstoppable!

We are in the midst of a wild job market. Technology has disrupted nearly every industry, blowing up many careers, but creating millions more. Many women feel forced to pivot to stay relevant, while others choose to pivot to keep engaged. Or we may be struggling to get back into the workforce after taking time off to raise kids. We hear words like hustle and grit and are told we need to think strategically, cultivate our own brands, and sell ourselves. But how do we do that? How do we pivot or radically relaunch our careers? How do we become unapologetically bold and badass–the boss of our own future? Getting ahead today requires the action-first, fake-it-’til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech world. It’s the tech industry that’s redefined our culture, and perhaps not surprisingly, it’s those Silicon Valley lessons that can help all women in all stages of their careers succeed. This mindset is not typically a female one. Women tend to be cautious. We overthink our next moves. We might be safer . . . but we’re also stuck. What if women embraced the startup spirit? What if we had the confidence to take chances, even if we knew we may fail first? What if instead of agonizing over which step to take, we leapt forward quickly? Fearless and Free empowers women, showing us how to lean into our strengths, increase our confidence, and follow successful lessons from Silicon Valley that can help us pivot in any career–and unlock a world of possibilities. Author Wendy Sachs talked to a wide range of women who faced down fears, roadblocks, and failures to reinvent themselves. The book weaves their insights and experiences together with current research and actionable advice. You’ll learn how to: Capitalize on your skills and expand them – Grow comfortable with being uncomfortable – Boost your confidence – Sell your story – Engineer serendipity – Nurture your network – Shake off setbacks – Brand yourself–without bragging – Build momentum – Compete with digital natives – Reposition yourself if you’re reentering the workforce – And more Whether you want out of a shrinking industry or into a business of your own creation, Fearless and Free helps you dream big–and act now.

      As a woman on my fourth career (and still only in my 30’s), this book resonated so strongly with me — and I wish I’d had it to bolster me in those times of uncertainty when I was shifting gears and changing paths. The author does a great job of imparting wisdom through stories, so it’s easy, fun reading that also manages to be really informative and constructive. I’d recommend this book to women at any stage in their career who feel like they want “more” — more respect, more responsibility, more flexibility, more satisfaction.

      “Fearless and Free” is the book that all women need to read. It gets to the root of what holds so many of us back – a combination of a lack of confidence and fear of failure. But it also gives smart, practical advice on what we can do to overcome these issues, grow our confidence, take risks, move forward and yes, pivot in our careers. Wendy Sachs is an engaging, honest writer who makes you feel like you’re not alone. She shares her own epic fails along the way. For all of us who want to become more fearless in our careers and in our lives, Fearless and Free is a great read. I highly recommend this book!

      I just received my copy of Fearless and Free and completely relate to this book. I’ve personally pivoted from corporate marketing to owning my own interior design business. Making the decision to exit and reinvent took soul searching and courage. This book affirmed my decisions and will help so many women decide to take the leap with clarity and insight. “Fearless and Free” is a fantastic book for all women whether they are entrepreneurial or want to work for someone else. It’s a great, entertaining and inspiring book full of advice that is smart and do-able.
