Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office

I love this book and want to dedicate a series on my blog to some of the items from the book.  It can be difficult to find a book that can inspire you to be better and that gives you real tools you can use to grow professionally and as a person outside of the office.

This national bestseller by Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., uncovers 101 unconscious mistakes women make that sabotage their careers.  Here are some examples:

Mistake #3:Working too hard.  The truth is, no woman was ever promoted purely because of hard work.  Learn to "waste" a little time.

Mistake #26: Decorating your office like your living room.  Unless you're an interior decorator, it doesn't pay.  Reevaluate your office decor.

Mistake #27: Feeding others.  You are not "Mom" or "Betty Crocker".  Think twice before you put food on your desk.

Keep an eye out for updates as they are posted.  And feel free to give us your opinion!  We would love to hear your thoughts on these ideas and whether you agree or not.
