About the book (publisher’s description)
Author Wendy Sachs is a master of the career pivot. An Emmy-award winning TV news producer, Wendy has worked at Dateline, NBC, Fox, and CNN. She was also a Capitol Hill press secretary and editor-in-chief of Care.com.
We are in the midst of a wild job market. Technology has disrupted nearly every industry, blowing up many careers, but creating millions more. Many women feel forced to pivot to stay relevant or may be struggling to get back into the workforce after taking time off to raise kids.
Getting ahead today requires the action-first, fake-it-’til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech world. It’s the tech industry that’s redefined our culture, and perhaps not surprisingly, it’s those Silicon Valley lessons that can help all women in all stages of their careers succeed.
Fearless and Free empowers women with successful lessons from Silicon Valley that can help us pivot in any career. Sachs talked to a wide range of women who faced down fears, roadblocks, and failures to reinvent themselves. The book weaves their insights and experiences together with current research and actionable advice.
