This is a book filled with both inspiration and practical lessons drawn from real-life experience, shared woman-to-woman in a career mentoring relationship.
Author Alexia Isaak's achievement here is remarkable: the book itself embodies major themes of her mentor's lessons by "paying it forward" — to you! As you'll see, her mentor Rhonda Shasteen, former Chief Marketing Officer at Mary Kay, Inc., observes that many of the lessons she shared took on greater meaning and importance when re-examined with the benefit of experience.
In these pages, Isaak in turn reviews those lessons and provides her own reflections on their application to her career and life. What emerges are:
- dozens of useful ideas for mapping your own career,
- wonderful insights into how women successfully navigate the business world, and
- a guidebook for finding your own mentor and maximizing the value of the relationship to both of you.
Isaak and Shasteen share the hope that after sharing in their relationship, you'll take full advantage of that last one.
