Women tend to be inherently cautious, to the point of overthinking their every move. This may help them stay safer than their male counterparts, but it also keeps them stuck in the action-first, fake-it-til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech world shaking up the workforce today. What if women embraced the startup spirit? What if they had the confidence to take chances, even if they knew they may fail first? What if instead of agonizing over which step to take, they leapt forward quickly? These are the traits that helped Silicon Valley redefine our culture, and not surprisingly, these are the same lessons that can help all women succeed in all stages of their careers.In Fearless and Free, author Wendy Sachs has provided what O, The Oprah Magazine has called "pithy, invaluable guidance to women stymied in the workplace." With lessons learned from a wide range of women who faced down fears, roadblocks, and failures to reinvent themselves, Sachs's invaluable resource teaches women how to: - Boost their confidence- Sell their story- Capitalize on their skills and expand them- Nurture their network- Brand themselves--without bragging- Reposition themselves for reentering the workforce- And much more!By taking the disruptive methods that helped Silicon Valley send shockwaves across industries, Fearless and Free seeks to empower women in the workforce, showing them how to lean into their strengths, increase confidence, and make their impact known loud and clear.
