This handy pocket sized book is packed to the brim with practical advice on everything from productivity to managing your business.
Easy to read and tote around, this book is the perfect secret desk reference for those moments when you need a pep talk or enlightenment.
Written in a conversational tone, Little Black Book is
easy to relate to and helps you visualize the scenarios Uwagba is advising on. Having read many business books, this one isn't dry, preachy, elitist or overly academic. Instead, it's practical, relevant, real and draws upon perspectives from the author and other professional women at various career stages. The personal narratives also inspire those, 'I know what she means' moments and lend both credibility and humility to the advice being dished out. Further, Uwagba's use of inspirational quotes to capture and help you remember the take home message of the chapter is the best part.
"A rising tide lifts all boats."
With respect to resources for education and professional development, the author highlights a mix of global, regionally relevant and online resources.
After reading this several times, I highly recommend this to every working woman and deem it a valuable reference for new grads as it provides concise and practical advice that's intuitive. From a business culture perspective, having worked in different countries, I feel she's captured the common threads in workplaces all over and done a great job providing advice that resonates across freelance and corporate structures.. It is clear Uwagba understands the workplace and the intersection between creative, corporate and freelance envirnoments.
