Along the way, she talks with well-known professionals such as Valerie Jarrett, comedian Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Donald Trump and Jack Welch. A few of the important lessons and strategies Brzezinski learns and shares include: learning to find your own way, developing a sense of entitlement, if you’re not paid for it, don’t do it, be visible and willing to promote yourself, speak up and make sure your ideas are heard, negotiate like a powerful woman, know your contributions and pick your moment to ask for a raise.
The book is written in an easy manner and makes for a quick read. The author writes openly about getting fired and how hard it was to find another job and about the mistakes she made along the way of underestimating her own value.
Readers will find that the book debunks the idea that they are alone in feeling undervalued in the workplace. Best of all, readers will benefit from the many refreshing ideas on ways to make sure they are making the money they deserve.
