being boss : book giveaway!

Thanks so much to everyone who entered to win this BOSS BOOK! The name I pulled this morning: Francie of! Congratulations, Francie… it’s time to be BOSS! And, huge congratulations to Emily and Kathleen on an amazing, successful, and exciting launch week xo


Oh, yes, yes, YES. Being Boss: Take Control of Your Work and Live Life On Your Own Terms … yep, this is the brand new book by Kathleen Shannon and Emily Thompson. You might know them from their brilliant podcast titled, you guessed it, Being Boss. I have known these amazing, entrepreneurial women for years {we all met at Alt Summit a looooong time ago}, and I could not be more excited for them. Today, on April 10th, their first book hits shelves worldwide!  This book puts all of their podcast episodes, personal insights, and in-the-trenches experience into a tidy {beautifully designed} package. Emily and Kathleen have put everything into this book… they give amazing/easy to follow advice on getting focused on what you want, mapping your goals, and thankfully, they talk a lot about how to stop freaking out about money … and selling yourself without shame! Amen. They also invited me to do a little Q&A on the ins and out of self-doubt and, of course, I said “yes!”

So… guess what? Running Press, the publisher of this lovely book, has given me one copy to give away to one person who’s ready to be BOSS. I’m guessing that’s you! Leave a comment below and I’ll draw one name on Friday April 13th. Good luck! ps. Or… just go buy the book right now!

    So I’ll confess I’ve already downloaded the audiobook because I just love the Being Boss ladies. Then I heard them saying the book is both well designed and chock full of photos…. now I want the book too so I can leave it on the coffee table and share it with whoever stops by.

    Even though now I am mostly only boss of myself…and people I work with on civic projects, I see these women…and you…are kindred spirits.
