August Reading

The Woman I Wanted to Be- Diane von Furstenberg
In The Woman I Wanted to Be, DVF reflects on her remarkable life from being born to Holocaust survivors to building a global fashion brand, all the while becoming the woman she wanted to be.  This book is an easy (and fun) weekend read.  I was fascinated by all of her life experiences, especially when it came to traveling and all of the other business and licensing deals she was involved with.  If you like books on fashion startups, this book is for you.
The Thank You Economy- Gary Vaynerchuk
This is the third Gary Vee book I have read. If you listen to Gary Vee's podcast (which I highly recommend), you will like this book, along with his other books.  In The Thank You Economy, Gary Vee looks at the evolution of today's marketplace and shares how businesses can develop successful relationships with consumers and ultimately scale consumer attention using social media platforms.  This is a great book for business owners!

Kate White is a New York Times best-selling author and former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine.  I had this book on my Goodreads queue for several months and finally got around to reading it in August.  I really enjoyed this book and liked the structure.  It is broken down into three sections on success- how to get it, how to go big with it, and how to savor it.  The three sections are broken down into smaller, easy to read subsections focusing on different career aspects, which I appreciated because I try to get some reading in during lunch, if possible.  

Similar to I Shouldn't Be Telling You This, The New Rules of Work is a great career book for women new to or re-entering the workforce.  There are some great career tips, as well as cover letter and resume templates that would be great for recent graduates.  

Good morning!  If you follow my blog, you know that I am a total bookworm!  I especially love reading books about career/personal development, entrepreneurship, start-ups, and successful people (especially women executives and entrepreneurs).   I love sharing my favorites, and hope that they inspire you as much as they inspire me.  I am always looking for new book recommendations, so feel free to drop any in the comment section below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
