Book Review: WorkParty
If you're looking for #RealTalk what it takes to be in business as a woman (in this patriarchal era), look no further than WorkParty by Jaclyn Johnson.
Her entertaining storytelling of her career's successes + failures will make you sigh countless times, thinking "I'm not alone." In her words, "WorkParty is the hard work that the American Dream is based on, but driven by passion rather than necessity." The nurturing of a community of creative + entrepreneurial women celebrating each other's successes is at the heart of her manifesto. Numerous examples of women-led companies & how they innovate in the market show us what it takes to be successful. She gives down to earth advice for women at all stages of entrepreneurship. Illustrated quotes add some fun to her already captivating book.
Her honest + genuine retelling of the events of her career made me believe I was sitting with a girlfriend, opening her heart + life with me, sharing her hard-won business lessons so that I don't make the same mistakes – though these helped her become the business woman she now is.
This book was the perfect read after an intense creative period in my business. Reading her story + advice helped me stay focused & confident.
