<p><strong><em>“I believe we </em>can<em> change the world. But first, we’ve got to stop living in fear of being judged for who we are.”</em></strong></p><p>Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough.</p><p>In <em>Girl, Stop Apologizing</em>, #1 <em>New York Times </em>bestselling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people—whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee—instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself. </p>

The Likeability Trap: How to Break Free and Succeed as You Are

<p><strong>Be nice, but not too nice. </strong><strong>Be successful, but not too successful. </strong><strong>Just be likeable. Whatever that means?</strong></p><p><strong>Women are stuck in an impossible bind. At work, strong women are criticized for being cold, and warm women are seen as pushovers. An award-winning journalist examines this fundamental paradox and empowers readers to let go of old rules and reimagine leadership rather than reinventing themselves.</strong></p><p>Consider that even competent women must appear likeable to successfully negotiate a salary, ask for a promotion, or take credit for a job well done—and that studies show these actions usually make them less likeable. And this minefield is doubly loaded when likeability intersects with race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and parental status. </p><p>Relying on extensive research and interviews, and carefully examined personal experience, <em>The Likeability Trap</em> delivers an essential examination of the pressure put on women to be amiable at work, home, and in the public sphere, and explores the price women pay for internalizing those demands. Rather than advising readers to make themselves likeable, Menendez empowers them to examine how they perceive themselves and others and explores how the concept of likeability is riddled with cultural biases. Our demands for likeability, she argues, hinder <em>everyone’s</em> progress and power.</p><p>Inspiring, thoughtful and often funny, <em>The Likeability Trap</em> proposes surprising, practical solutions for confronting the cultural patterns holding us back, encourages us to value unique talents and styles instead of muting them, and to remember that while likeability is part of the game, it will not break you. </p>

From the bestselling author of Girl Code, Cara Alwill Leyba delivers Girl on Fire —the long-awaited follow up fans have been waiting for.<br /><br />The self-publishing queen started this conversation four years ago with Girl Code, her ode to women and their power, a book so successful that it has been translated in seven languages and continues to make a major impact on the world. Girl On Fire builds on this concept and shows you how to blaze your own trail immediately. You don’t need permission from anyone to live fearlessly and start living your dream.<br /><br />As an early voice in the female-driven movement, Cara continues to be a leader in the space, liberating women to trust their intuition and create their own opportunities. She empowers her readers to stop waiting for their big break and, instead, to publish their own books, start their own podcasts, host their own panels and design their own clothing lines; whatever their desires are.<br /><br />From the author:<br /><br />Who would you be if you stopped following *their* rules? What would you create if you create if you had nothing holding you back?<br /><br />Now that women entrepreneurs are banding together in sisterhood and realizing the importance of collaboration over competition, it's time to take things to the next level. It's time to rise up, together, and challenge the status quo. It's time to question the way things have been done in the past, to write our own rules, and do life and business OUR way.<br /><br />The world needs us, as women, to utilize our voices now more than ever. We must step into our power and we must let nothing hold us back.<br /><br />Business is changing rapidly, and there has never been a better time to choose yourself. Gone are the days of waiting to be chosen by an agent, a record label, a company, or a publisher.<br /><br />Successful entrepreneurs don't wait for their "big break" —they create it. They don't wait to be featured in a magazine, or picked up by a publisher, or given a chance to speak on a stage. They promote themselves on platforms they create, they self-publish their own books, they launch their own podcasts, they create their own events and build their own stages.<br /><br />Now is the time to show up for ourselves. We all have the ability to design a life and career beyond our wildest imaginations without permission, selection, or validation. Girl on Fire will show you how to do it.<br /><br />This book is for every woman who has had a vision that others might not understand. It's for every woman who is sick and tired of playing by the rules. It's for every woman who has known she was meant for more and has waited far too long for someone to give her the permission she thought she needed.

<b> <i>Lean In</i> for women of color: A no-BS look at the odds stacked against women of color in professional settings, from the wage gap to biases and micro-aggressions, with actionable takeaways</b><br /> <br /><i>The Memo</i> is the much-needed career advice guide for women of color specifically, finally ending the one-size-fits-all approach of business books that lump together women across races and overlook the unique barriers to success for women of color. In a charismatic and relatable voice, Minda Harts brings her entrepreneurial experience as CEO of The Memo to the page, as well as her past career life as a fundraising consultant to top colleges across the country. With wit and candor, Harts begins by acknowledging the "ugly truths" that keep women of color from getting the proverbial seat at the table in corporate America: micro-aggressions, systemic racism, white privilege, etc. Harts validates that women aren't making up the discrimination they feel, even if it isn't always overt. From there, she gives straight talk on how to address these issues head on, and provides a roadmap to help women of color and their allies make real change to the system. With chapters on network-building, office politics, money and negotiation, <i>The Memo </i>covers all the basics that any good business book should. But through the author's lens, it offers support and long-overdue advice particularly for women of color.

<p><strong>Girl gangs reigning terror at Facebook, narcissistic overlords at Google . . . this is the backdrop of <em>Lean Out</em>, which takes readers on the journey of Marissa Orr, a single mom of three trying to find success in her fifteen-year career at the world’s top tech giants. Orr delivers an ambitious attempt to answer the critical question: What have we gotten wrong about women at work?</strong> </p><p>“This book is a must-read for insights on the impact that reversing systemic gender biases can have on creating more diverse, healthier workplaces for both women and men.”</p><p>--Joanne Harrell, Senior Director, USA Citizenship, Microsoft</p><p> “This book will make you think differently about what it will take for women to succeed at the highest levels in American business.”</p><p>--Rishad Tobaccowala, Chief Growth Officer, Publicis Groupe</p><p><em>Lean Out</em> offers a new and refreshingly candid perspective on what it’s really like for today’s corporate underdogs. Based on both in-depth research and personal experiences, Orr punctures a gaping hole in today’s feminist rhetoric and sews it back up with compelling new arguments for the reasons more women don’t make it to the top and how companies can better incentivize women by actually listening to what they have to say and by rewarding the traits that make them successful.</p><p> In <em>Lean Out</em>, Orr uncovers:</p><ul><li>Why our pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well-being.</li><li>The need to redefine success and change the way corporations choose their leaders.</li><li>The way most career advice books targeting professional women seek to change their behavior rather than the system.</li><li>Why modern feminism has failed to make any progress on its goals for equality.</li></ul><p>More than fifty years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act, the wage gap still hovers at 80 percent, and only 5 percent of CEOs in the <em>Fortune 500</em> are women. Today, rising up the ranks in many companies still often means cutthroat, win-at-all-costs tactics, where being the loudest voice in the room is more important than being the person with the best ideas for moving the company forward. Not surprisingly, most women don’t want to play this game.</p><p> An everyday working woman with a sardonic sense of humor, Orr is an endearing antihero who captures the voice for a new generation of women at work. <em>Lean Out</em> presents a revolutionary path forward, to change the life trajectories of women in the corporate world and beyond.</p>
