    A few years ago I was stuck I couldn't figure out the next step I wanted to take with my career Luckily I found a great business coach to work with and she helped me find my path through For those of you in a similar situation Wendy Sachs' book Fearless and Free is like sitting with a good friend who is reassuring you that you are not alone with your struggle and is cheering you on with inspirational tales from other women who've been in the same boat Because of that it's not a here's a list of specific action steps to take kind of book so look elsewhere if you're hoping for thatSachs offers this in the opening chapter to sum up her goal The celebrated start up model of disruption that embraces failing fast and pivoting is not a typically female one Women tend to be risk averse We can overthink our next move and not act until we are 100 percent ready We may feel like frauds when we're trying something new Instead of being disruptive women tend to be disciplined And we're often not pivoting because we're stuck At times it felt like Sachs was covering well trodden ground If you've already read Lean In Playing BigGrit Give and Take and Presence Sachs references these books and reiterates their core points so you won't find many new ideas Having said that I did discover one new book an article and an interesting career service through Fearless and Free And if you haven't read these books this is a great way to get introduced to some great ideasUltimately reading this book is all about encouraging you to move through fear and take action For those of you who may be in the in between stage you know you want to do something different but you don't know what yet Sachs shares reassuring perspective from Meredith Sinclair The uncomfortable pauses where you think nothing is happening is often where things are brewing Meredith says If we can get friendly with a little bit of discomfort and the process then it's not as scary I wanted to know where I was going and see the light in the path But you have to give stuff a minute to let it noodle We get too afraid of these unclear places and don't realize that they're a valuable piece of the pie It would take a lot of fear out of people if they understood that this time is valuable even if there is not final product yet Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy for review All opinions are my own

    Read my full review here The subtitle of Wendy Sachs' excellent look at women and their careers is How Smart Women Pivot and Relaunch Their Careers In it Sachs tells her own story of the multiple iterations of her career and encourages her women readers to be creative resilient and passionate about their career choices and career plansIn story after story Sachs shows how women create opportunities for themselves—or seize opportunities—and shine in whatever career they choose She suggests that in today's world opportunities abound for the determined creative woman She also asserts that most women will have several careers in their lifetimes with agility being a must have skill She saysThis book is for women at all stages of their professional journeys Some may be looking for a total relaunch Others are trying to reposition themselves to stay relevant Still may be looking to get back into the game after taking time off to raise kids and need the confidence and direction to take the first step I kept seeing my daughters step daughters and daughters in law in the context of the book They are all attempting to be resilient relevant and challenged Actually I saw myself as I figured out what career would best meld with my life as a widowed mother of three Then what I would do after I retired from my education career Actually I have made 4 different career moves in the years since I retired At the same time that Sachs is telling all these wonderful and inspiring stories she is also telling women about how to be successful in a male dominated world Her story about Hilary Clinton is a case in point and it is certainly something that all the women in the country observed in this last election The uestion kept coming up How is a woman supposed to act? I appreciated her advice for example to stop apologizing all the time Just tell it how it isWell for sure the world of women is changing rapidly and Wendy Sachs and her book should prove inspiration for an entire new generation of women who must be agile enough to take advantage of the change as it happens

    Fearless Free focuses on the female in business and demonstrates how to shift our usual cautious thinking into ways that will be profitable in business both for females as the employee and for the bottom lineThis book was amazing and truly inspiring in helping one move towards being fearless and free as a woman in a business world or as a female entrepreneur My story is varied much like some of the stories in this book As a result I learned I was inspired and I breathed a huge sigh of relief that others were also in the same boat with meThe writing was clear and easy to read uickly The stories and examples were relevant and kept the book moving forward One of the best business books I've read yet

    She shares some great tips but it was over powered by her political statements Disappointing since this could have been a great book Wendy also recognizes some great accomplishments from other women that I researched after reading the book I received this book from Netgalley I was not reuired to write a positive reviewYou can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex violence language and drugalcohol use in books

    Good for younger women with big resumes Well written and interesting but all the women discussed have big time resumes and connections out the wazoo I learned some good things but as a 58 year old teacher didn't feel I fit her target audience I also wanted practical tools and concrete examples For example when she discussed resumes it would have been great to have had examples
