Boss Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan to Take Charge of Your Career, Nicole Lapin

1. Boss B*tch: A Simple 12-Step Plan to Take Charge of Your Career, Nicole Lapin
This book is a must-read for all young professional women!  This is a book of empowerment for women, and serves as a guide on how to own your work and yourself.  The book is divided into three sections, "Being the Boss of You", "Being the Boss at Work", and "Being the Boss of Your Own Business", written in a very witty and easy to understand format (she covers a lot of complex financial concepts and does an excellent job at breaking them down and making them interesting).  Lapin's advice is very practical and I love her transparency on topics such as negotiation.

Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

2. Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential, Barbara Oakley, PhD
Mindshift reveals how we can overcome stereotypes and preconceived ideas about what is possible for us to learn and become- regardless of age.  This is an excellent book for anyone considering making a career change, and has quite a few personal stories of people changing careers from various industries.  I also learned about the Massive Open Online Class ("MOOC") and am obsessed!  A MOOC is a (usually free) online class for anyone wanting to continue learning.  Although, I think you can pay a nominal fee to get a certificate for the class to help you advance at work.  There are a lot of different websites, such as Coursera that offer MOOCs on tons of different topics.  I definitely want to take some in the near future!

Crush It: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In On Your Passion: Gary Vaynerchuk

3. Crush It: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In On Your Passion, Gary Vaynerchuk
If you've read my blog for some time, you know that I am a big fan of Gary Vaynerchuk.  In Crush It!, Gary V shows you how to use the power of the Internet to turn your real interests into real businesses with his no-nonsense, "just do it" approach.  Crush It! is a wealth of knowledge that is full of great tips regarding social media and personal branding, as well as how to harness the power of the Internet to make your entrepreneurial side hustle dreams come true.  I also highly recommend subscribing to his podcast, The Gary Vee Audio Experience for some daily motivation!

The Real-Life MBA, Jack and Suzy Welch

4. The Real-Life MBA, Jack and Suzy Welch
The Real-Life MBA is a great book for anyone in a leadership position.  This book covers some of the most pressing challenges related to creating winning strategies, leading and managing others, as well as building a thriving career.  There are also some great nuggets of wisdom about marketing, how to have a productive and healthy organizational culture, and great tips on work-life balance.

The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea, Bob Burg, John David Mann

5. The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea, Bob Burg, John David Mann
I highly, highly recommend everyone read this little book- it is excellent!!  The Go-Giver is a modern-day business parable that teaches the five laws of stratospheric success.
1. The Law of Vale- your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment;
2. The Law of Compensation- Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them;
3. The Law of Influence- Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first;
4. The Law of Authenticity- The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself;
5. The Law of Receptivity- The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.

Happy Monday!  I am so excited to collaborate with GRACESHIP for today's blog post.  I get so many emails and direct messages asking for the best briefcases and work bags (here is my last roundup of some of my favorites).  GRACESHIP sent me this gorgeous New York laptop bag to carry to work, and I absolutely love it! As professional and stylish working women, it can be challenging to find a fashionable and functional work bag that we actually want to carry around all day.  This GRACESHIP laptop bag is the perfect work bag for #girlbosses to show up to work in style.  Not only does it look classy and professional, but more importantly, it carries all of my daily essentials, ranging from everything from my MacBook Pro and planner, to my water bottle and workout clothes, and keeps everything neatly organized into smaller pockets.  For example, I love the cell phone pocket and interior charger pocket!

I knew I wanted to collaborate with GRACESHIP after reading over their website and mission.  I am extremely selective in the brands that I feature on my blog, but immediately fell in love with the GRACESHIP mission and its amazing story.  I highly encourage you to check out their blog for some great career advice and inspiration. Of course, supporting other women in business (and women business owners) is a huge priority for me, and I instantly "fan-girled" over the GRACESHIP CEO, Emily Gimmel.  Be sure to check out GRACESHIP for your next work bag!

GRACESHIP is kind enough to offer Lawyer Lookbook readers $30 off your purchase by entering code "LAWYER" at checkout!
