If they can do it, you can do it!
Don’t be fooled into thinking you are any less capable than others based on appearances. Don’t give up just because of one—or many—setbacks. Don’t settle for anything less than what you are capable of. And don’t listen to the voices that undermine your strengths, especially those inside your own head!
“Kimberly Wiefling’s delightful Scrappy Women in Business shatters the myth that the road to success depends on careful foresight and planning. By dissecting the diverse paths taken by eleven successful women, this book demonstrates why the virtues of persistence, improvisation, and embracing messiness and unpredictability are hallmarks of great leaders—and why the ability to develop and stick to a master plan is an overrated virtue.”
– Robert I. Sutton, Stanford Professor and Author of Good Boss, Bad Boss

Description: Although some people make it look easy, the reality is that the path to success is often convoluted and untidy. It’s tempting to believe that the professionals surrounding us somehow have their act completely together while we lurch fitfully onward, but the real story is often much more complicated and chaotic. This refreshingly honest book provides welcome reassurance for every businesswoman who’s ever wondered, “Is it me, or has the whole rest of the company gone nuts?!” Each chapter is a fascinating description of one woman’s unlikely journey, and every story is teeming with personal insights and practical tips to encourage you along the way toward your own goals and dreams.
The human side of each woman comes alive as she shares her challenges, choices and achievements in a “just between us” tone that educates as it entertains.
If you’ve ever had “one of those days” when your coworkers seemed to grow horns, or you were tempted to sink into the icy couch of despair, reading these stories will help buoy your spirits and realize that you’re not alone. If you’re a seasoned professional, you’ll see some of your own journey reflected in these stories. And if you’re just starting out, the wisdom in this guide will save you a whole lot of time and aggravation!
