"What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a familiar question we're all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, the question has unintended consequences. It can make you feel like you need to choose one job, one passion, one thing to be about. Guess what? You don't. Having a lot of different interests, projects and curiosities doesn't make you a 'jack-of-all-trades, master of none.' Your endless curiosity doesn't mean you are broken or flaky. What you are is a multipotentialite: someone with many interests and creative pursuits. And that is actually your biggest strength. How to Be Everything helps you channel your diverse passions and skills to work for you. Based on her popular TED talk, 'Why some of us don't have one true calling', Emilie Wapnick flips the script on conventional career advice. Instead of suggesting that you specialize, choose a niche or accumulate 10,000 hours of practice in a single area, Wapnick provides a practical framework for building a sustainable life around ALL of your passions. You'll discover: Why your multipotentiality is your biggest strength, especially in today's uncertain job market. How to make a living and structure your work if you have many skills and interests. How to focus on multiple projects and make progress on all of them. How to handle common insecurities such as the fear of not being the best, the guilt associated with losing interest in something you used to love and the challenge of explaining 'what you do' to others. Not fitting neatly into a box can be a beautiful thing. How to Be Everything teaches you how to design a life, at any age and stage of your career, that allows you to be fully you, and find the kind of work you'll love" --Inside jacket.

Women who work : rewriting the rules for success

May 4, 2017
Trump, Ivanka, 1981- author.
New York, New York : Portfolio/Penguin, [2017]
x, 243 pages ; 24 cm
Introduction: women who work: rewriting the rules for success -- Dream big: identify your passions to create a life you'll love -- Make your mark: become a world-class communicator, colleague and networker -- Stake your claim: maximize your influence at work -- Work smarter, not harder: boost your productivity to make time for what matters most -- Tip the scale: letting go of balance by seizing meaningful moments -- Lead with purpose: changing the conversation around women and work.
"I believe that when it comes to women and work, there isn't one right answer. The only person who can create a life you'll love is you. Our grandmothers fought for the right to work. Our mothers fought for the choice to be in an office or to stay at home. Our generation is the first to fully embrace and celebrate the fact that our lives are multidimensional. Thanks to the women who come before us and paved the way, we can create the lives we want to lead--which look different for each of us. I've been fortunate to be able to build my career around my passions, from real estate to fashion. But my professional titles only begin to describe who I am and what I value. I have been an executive and an entrepreneur, but also--and just as importantly--a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. To me, 'work' encompasses my efforts to succeed in all of these areas. After appearing on The Apprentice years ago and receiving a flood of letters from young women asking for guidance, l realized the need tor more female leaders to speak out publicly in order to change the way society thinks and talks about 'women who work.' So I created a forum to do just that. This book evolves the conversation that started on, where so many incredible women (and men!) have shared their experiences, advice, ambitions, and passions. Women who work lead meetings and train tor marathons. We learn how to cook and how to code. We inspire our employees and our children. We innovate at our current jobs and start new businesses. Women Who Work will equip you with the best skills I've learned from some of the amazing people I've met, on subjects such as identifying opportunities, shifting careers smoothly, negotiating, leading teams, starting companies, managing work and family, and helping change the system to make it better for women--now and in the future. I hope it will inspire you to redefine success and architect a life that honors your individual passions and priorities, in a way only you can."--Jacket.

Letters to a young writer : some practical and philosophical advice

April 10, 2017
McCann, Colum, 1965- author.
xix, 166 pages : illustrations ; 20 cm

"A lesson in how to be a writer---and so much more than that. Intriguing and inspirational, this book is a call to look outward rather than inward. McCann asks his readers to constantly push the boundaries of experience, to see empathy and wonder in the stories we craft and hear. A paean to the power of language, both by argument and by example, Letters to a Young Writer is fierce and honest in its testament to the bruises delivered by writing as both a profession and a calling. It charges aspiring writers to learn the rules and even break them. These fifty-two essays are ultimately a profound challenge to a new generation to bring truth and light to a dark world through their art."--Jacket.

New York : Crown Business, 2017.
382 pages ; 24 cm
Includes index.
"You don't need dozens or hundreds of employees to be a boss, says financial expert and serial entrepreneur Nicole Lapin. Hell, you don't even need one. You just need to find your inner Boss Bitch -- your most confident, savvy, ambitious self -- and own it. A Boss Bitch is the she-ro of her own story. She is someone who takes charge of her future and embraces being a "boss" in all aspects of the word: whether as the boss of her own life, family and career, the literal boss at work, or, as the boss of her own company. Whichever she chooses (or all three), a Boss Bitch is someone who gets out there and makes her success happen -- and so can you."--Provided by publisher.
