This is my 13th installment of my Work Series Wednesday. Every Wednesday I will be sharing stories from my work journey and other work lessons I learned. This series is called #WhitxWorkSeries!
It's easy to feel burnout and overwhelmed at the end of the year. I feel that now - between trying to finish everything for my clients, to shooting the campaigns I have for the blog. Now add in all the Holiday Season activities, sales, and gift buying and then I start to lose my mojo a bit. I always have a lot on my plate but I like it that way, that is part of my personality. I always like to be working on something or learning something new. I love to learn and figure out better ways for me to be running my business and building my brand.
One of my favorite ways to recharge and re-connecting with my inner hustler is reading inspirational books. I have rounded up my favorite books that always help rally me when I'm feeling a bit lost. Here are 6 books are overflowing with advice, self-help and business lessons you can apply to your own life. These books are great gifts option to your fellow female hustler or mentor in your life. I recommend reading these over the Thanksgiving weekend to help tap back into your creativity and drive!
You are a Badass by Jen Sincero is an entertaining read with plenty of real-world advice. Her book aims to empower any readers and teach you how to stop doubting yourself and get stuff done.
Leave Your Mark is a book filled with advice and mentorship about moving your career forward from the Brand PR Guru Aliza Licht. You may remember her behind the DKNYPR Twitter and Tumblr account. This book is a must read for people looking to build and communicate their personal brand!
This book is for my corporate babes! Feminist Fight Club by Jessica Bennett blends personal stories with research, statistics, infographics, and no-bullsh*t expert advice.
