    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle



    I loved books, loved stories, loved being read to at an early age and then reading for myself — that's true for most writers. But looking... Continue »

Mrs. Moneypenny's Career Advice for Ambitious Women Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Star Financial Times columnist Mrs. Moneypenny says the smartest thing women can do for their careers is to stop trying to “have it all” – time is scarce and you can’t excel both at work and at home, so stop feeling guilty already! Instead, she shows you how to figure out what you want, make your choices and own them in her latest book, Sharpen Your Heels: Mrs. Moneypenny's Career Advice For Women.

As a successful business owner and mother of three, Mrs. Moneypenny knows her stuff and takes her responsibility to help other women very seriously. She draws from her own career and from her circle of “superwomen” to tackle the realities of being a career woman – even if it means doing paperwork in the loo.

Among the essentials:

-How to say NO – even to those you love – but also how to not take “no” for an answer when it comes to your priorities.

-How to effectively network with men who do their socializing while hitting the links.   

-How to stop trying to achieve the mythical work-life balance. Your work is part of your life – so figure out how you can integrate family and work commitments.

Whether you're just starting out or a rung from the top, whether you're a store manager or a CEO, let Mrs. Moneypenny be your ultimate mentor - and guide you to success.

Synopsis:

Mrs. Moneypenny—star Financial Times columnist, TV personality, wife, mother, and owner of a successful small business—is worried about women. She understands that although women can’t have it all, they’re expected to do it all. From maintaining a beautiful house and happy children to staying late at work and keeping up with the boys, Mrs. Moneypenny is honest about the difficult choices that working women face. Time is scarce and no woman can manage to excel both at work and at home—but that’s okay.
 
Mrs. Moneypenny distills her own experiences and shares observations of other successful working women in this incisive, practical, no-holds-barred guide. All women, from those at the start of their careers to high-level executives, will discover a helping hand and a laugh along the way.

About the Author

For twelve years Mrs. Moneypenny has been entertaining readers of the Financial Times with her views on everything from Wellington boots to waxing. She runs her own business while juggling a golf-obsessed husband and three children, whom she lovingly refers to as Cost Centers 1, 2 and 3. Her one-woman show has run at the Edinburgh Fringe, off Broadway and at the Hay Festival.

Dr. Heather McGregor is a leading London headhunter who owns and runs Taylor Bennett, an executive search firm. She also teaches from time to time at the Cass Business School and the London Business School, and chairs Career Academies UK, an educational charity.

Strangely, no one has ever seen Mrs. Moneypenny and Dr. McGregor in the same place at the same time.
