I did get to read a little. My schedule will be busy into the Fall and Winter BUT I did want to share two great books.
More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are-Elaine Welteroth
Talk about quotable, thriving, and empowering! There is more to the story than the headlines and hype of the second African American editor-in-chief and youngest editor-in-chief in Conde Nast magazine history. Elaine Welteroth shares her journey to editor-in-chief and beyond. I could not put this book down. I neglected sleep to read more because I saw myself in these pages. Trying to navigate in a professional world as a female of color, she openly shares her struggles of balancing work and play, love, the industry, health, and many other facets of her life. It is quite inspiring. It dares you to climb higher and dream bigger. It’s a blissful favorite too.
Dear Madam President-Jennifer Palmieri
Highly recommend this book for driven lady hustlers who want to make a difference in their homes, community, and world. I read it in one sitting. Trust and believe, it’s hard to be a woman in a male dominated field where being assertive is being too emotional, where it is better to be silent than speak, where we should smile all the time, and the like. It’s just hard to be taken seriously sometimes. The author was the former White House Director of Communications in the Obama administration and was the Director of Communications for then-presidential nominee, Hilary Clinton. This book is not a political ploy but an empowering challenge to the future female leaders and I believe…the first female president. I don’t believe that will be me but I do believe that this is a book for the female hustlers. It gives encouraging words and practical steps to keep in mind moving up in this world. A Blissful Favorite!!!
