Is This Working? The Businesslady’s Guide to Getting What You Want from Your Career (Adams Media/Simon & Schuster)

Buy it at Amazon, B&N, IndieBound, Target, favorite local bookstores—or I’ll send you a personalized signed copy for $13 if you ask nicely.

The book has ALL NEW material (no column repeats) featuring everything I wish I’d known when I first entered the workforce. It’s ideal for recent grads but still useful for folks who are more established in their careers—and funny too.

If you flipped it over, here’s what you’d find on the back cover:

“In today’s ultracompetitive business environment, figuring out your own professional goals is more important than ever. How do you keep your career on track if you’re dealing with a position that’s way outside of your desired field? A manager who expects you to sleep with your smartphone under your pillow? Or a job search that’s yet to yield an actual job? It’s time to ask an expert: Is This Working?

Courtney C.W. Guerra, A.K.A the Businesslady, uses an easy-to-read Q&A format to help you navigate situations you’ll encounter in your professional life, along with a set of strategies for getting through them. In her signature fun-yet-smart tone, Guerra shares concrete advice that will help you get where you want to go—like how to score a job you actually enjoy, how to manage the responsibilities that come with your first (hard-earned!) promotion, and what you should (and shouldn’t!) post on your social media accounts.

There is no one right way to get what you want from your career. Let the Businesslady help you discover the path that’s right for you.”
