EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE
The 5 Tactics to Get What You Want in Life, Love, and Work
Speaker, educator, and career coach, Dr. Meg Myers Morgan argues that most of the conventional wisdom driving women's life choices is wrong; women don't have to limit themselves to thinking of success in terms of what we give up, but can instead approach their lives in all their full, rich, messy glory.
In Everything is Negotiable, Meg Myers Morgan deconstructs preconceived notions about adulthood, parenthood, and career paths that have women limiting themselves. Instead of following that linear plan, for example, she urges readers to take action now for what they want-limitations be damned. With wit and verve, Morgan also tells women to forget trying to "have it all," as the cliché phrase goesit'll never happen. Instead, this book teaches them to navigate life's necessary trade-offs free of the baggage of their own expectations.
With her endearing charm and easy humor, Morgan has put together a practical handbook - drawn from her personal experience and her work coaching young womenthat's also fun to read. Morgan's reality-based, action-oriented advice presents a new direction from tired conversations about women, happiness, and success.
Chock full of strategies for where and when to give limited energy, what to demand from a career, and how to make better choices, Everything Is Negotiable is for women ready to seize the lives they really want.
