Book Club for Working Women
* This is coming from someone who hates to read, so the fact that I actually read these, says something.
The Working Woman’s Handbook by Phoebe Lovatt - this is perfect for creatives looking to break into the industry & get advice from leading ladies in the creative field. My favorite interview is with Elaine Welteroth.
Money Diaries by Lindsay Stanberry - Coming from someone completely clueless when it comes to money, this book has helped me learn all of the scary “adultish” terms within the finance world. It breaks everything down, so even the most clueless person can get it.
Little Black Book by Otegha Uwagba - This is sorta similar to The Working Woman’s Handbook, but in a much smaller & shorter version. This is more of a generic handbook for women in all stages of life & for all occupations.
The Career Code by Hillary Kerr & Katherine Power - I’d recommend this book to any recent graduates. It has so many helpful chapters on how to break into your desired industry. From learning how to properly set up a resume, to how to prepare for a job interview, this book covers it all.
Work Party by Jaclyn Johnson - This is less of a handbook and more of a guided story with tips along the way. I had the pleasure of working on a project with Jaclyn, so I was super excited to read more into her story & how she founded Create & Cultivate.
Becoming by Michelle Obama - It’s by Michelle Obama, need I say more??? She is one of my girl crushes, I aspire to be just like her, so if reading this book will get me there, I will read it cover to cover.
This Will Only Hurt a Little by Busy Phillips - Busy Phillips is another one of my girl crushes. She’s so real & down to earth & she’s absolutely hysterical on both her social media platforms & her new talk show.
The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight - This book is hysterical & makes you really reconsider how you’ve been living your life.
You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero - Typically I think self-help books are cheesy, but this one I actually agree with. As a designer, I am constantly doubting myself & with this book, I’ve learned new techniques with how to cope & grow on from it.
