Why We Love It: The Direct Selling industry illustrates this perfectly. Typically, the person deciding to enter into Direct Selling has two or three jobs, maybe owns a business and yet is willing to tack on additional responsibilities. Eventually achieving a level of success that lets them shed their old jobs gives them the time and freedom they didn’t know they were missing. Smart Office has created responsive communication tools to help with that journey.
Book Summary: In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg reignited the conversation around women in the workplace.
Sandberg is chief operating officer of Facebook and coauthor of Option B with Adam Grant. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TED talk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which has been viewed more than six million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.Lean In continues that conversation, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what they can. Sandberg provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career. She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment, and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women both in the workplace and at home.Written with humor and wisdom, Lean In is a revelatory, inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth that will empower women around the world to achieve their full potential. – Amazon
