What I'm Reading

I picked up this book after "liking" Debra Shigley’s fan page on facebook. Since purchasing, I keep this handy guide either in my purse or within arms reach. GGG is a stimulating guide to advancing yourself in all aspects of life. It provides detailed and realistic tools about an array of issues helping you recognize your worth and feel good in whatever professional situation you may find yourself in. In this practical, insightful and candid look at the world of work, Shigley covers everything from networking to make-up for ambitious professional women. Shigley provides the reader with her own accounts with a sassy and matter-of -fact point of view.

My favorite chapters:
  • The Work World Can Be a Cold, Hard Place-You Must Learn to Deal with it
  • Expand Your Circle
  • Natural Beauty is Bullsh*t
  • The Best Education is Self-Education
  • Learn the Art of Negotiation
So if I'm looking for a body shaper (Spanx), a mentor or need some input on how to negotiate a raise; I can revert back to my GGG guide as it covers it all. This is a sassy girl's guide to working better, feeling fabulous and a great confidence booster. I strongly recommend GGG as I am using Debra's tips in my own life.
