Rewriting the Rules For Success
Ivanka Trump--wife, mother, real estate developer, entrepreneur, and founder of her eponymous fashion brand and lifestyle website--empowers women to achieve maximum success in all aspects of their lives by figuring out what's truly most important to them. Unlike other books that pressure women to focus on their
careers, Women Who Work encourages readers to own and celebrate all of their passions, including family, friends, career, and creative pursuits. It's a guide to shedding expectations and limitations, so you can create one full life, without artificial limits.
Fifty percent of the world’s workforce is made up of women, yet the term “working women” is still used as if they’re an anomaly. Thanks in part to the generations of women who came before and fought hard to earn a seat at the table, today’s working women—among them, tens of millions of millennials—are able to do things differently. Disappearing are the days of face time for the sake of face time, 9-to-5 hours, and perfectly mapped career paths.
“Today’s generation of women is the first to be able to unabashedly embrace the fact that our lives are multidimensional,” writes Trump. “We’re deeply invested in our careers, but they don’t solely define us. For us, it’s about working smarter, not harder; integrating our personal passions and priorities with our professional goals in order to architect lives we love.”
For the CEO of her own company or a stay-at-home mom; an assistant in a large corporation or a part-time freelancer, this book celebrates the fact that, when it comes to women and work, there isn’t one “right” answer. By redefining what it means to be a modern working woman, and offering solution-oriented advice, Women Who Work will establish a new ideal, changing the conversation around women and work to one that’s more positive, accurate and inclusive.
