EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE

The 5 Tactics to Get What You Want in Life, Love, and Work

by Morgan, Meg Myers

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.

Many women are stuck in feedback loops about how to be successful and happy: striving to "have it all" at work and at home, being pressured into giving every part of their lives 100% until they're completely burnt-out, imagining only a strictly linear life path (college, job, marriage, kids), and accepting limitations without question. 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.

Dr. Meg Myers Morgan is an assistant professor at the University of Oklahoma. She administers the graduate programs in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management on the OU-Tulsa campus.

Meg was quoted in an article on NBCNews.com: "Employers routinely reiterate on their goals for the company, yet we rarely do that on a personal level", noted Meg Myers Morgan, Ph.D., author of "Everything is Negotiable". "A one-line vision statement for your care can guide you in building your goals," Myers Morgan said. "It doesn't need to be overwhelming: Most companies redo theirs every couple of years, or even annually. It's a moving document that you're not stuck to, which is freeing."

Everything is Negotionable is listed in PW's Self-improvement books: they aren't just for men - or women - anymore: Seal Press has been targeting female readers for over 40 years, Sedliar says. For instance, Everything Is Negotiable (Dec.) by Meg Myers Morgan, who leads the graduate programs in public administration and nonprofit management at University of Oklahoma in Tulsa, is one of a number of success-oriented self-help books directed at women. "That framework has classically been male business territory," Sedliar says. "We're applying it more widely."
