Book Review Wednesday: Work Party

No comments
I've been reading Create & Cultivate for some time now and I've listened to the founder, Jaclyn Johnson, on a bunch of podcasts. I love what Create & Cultivate is and I love the story of how Jaclyn founded it.

If you don't know what Create & Cultivate is, it's a website and conference series that helps women create and cultivate the lives and careers they want. It has incredible advice and puts on some amazing conferences with powerful, badass ladies as keynote speakers. It's everything you could want out of an empowering, women-focused website.

When I heard that Jaclyn Johnson was writing a book about her experience being an entrepreneur, I wrote down the date in my calendar. I was completely ecstatic and could not wait to get my hands on it. I ordered it the day it came out *I was in Flordia on a delayed flight home and literally, nothing was keeping me sane like the arrival of this book*  and I recently finished it.




WorkParty is all about how Jaclyn got knocked down and stood back up to create the company and career of her dreams. She offers advice to other women looking to break out of their shell and come to terms with what they want to do with their life.

One of the things I loved most about this book is that Jaclyn really highlights what to do to get to where you need to be. It's not all fluffy self help words -- it's an actual guideline. I really appreciate that in a career book.  She talked about negotiating, what to do when you fail, and how to navigate sexism in the workplace.

It was also super empowering and made me feel like a boss ass bitch. It wasn't the type of book that made me feel overwhelmed or bad about myself -- it made me feel like I will get to where I need to be when I'm meant to be there.

With every career book I read, I'm more and more impressed and WorkParty definitely set high expectations for every other career book I read in the future!

Basically, I highly recommend -- it's a must-read and a must-not-skip!

PS: If you want even more WorkParty fun, Jaclyn started a podcast by the same name and it's SO GOOD.
