The Nice Girls Don't Get... Box Set
By Lois P. Frankel
Reviewed by Angela Evans - May 30, 2005
Why do some women succeeded in the business world, and some barely get their foot in the door? On the same hand, why are some women financially inept and others whizzes at making money decisions and handling their own finances? According to Dr. Lois P. Frankel, many women are hindered by traits they learned as children that hold them back. In two empowering books, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers and Nice Girls Don't Get Rich : 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money, Frankel offers a plethora of handy tips that will help you succeed in business and in your financial endeavors.
These two books, essential reading for any woman, young or old, who feels that she is not reaching her full potential, are available in one handy CD box set. Issued by Time Warner AudioBooks, The Nice Girls Don't Get... Box Set contains, on 4 CDs a lively audio recording of Frankel's two best-selling books, which are read by the author herself. In Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office she provides 101 tips on how to overcome the learned behaviors that are holding women back in the business world and in Nice Girls Don't Get Rich she examines the 75 mistakes that women often make in their financial lives.
Combined, these two books will empower you to get ahead in the business world and to take charge of your own fiances. Once you have control of your own money - and have it working for you - you'll be less dependent on those around you, and once you learn what traits are holding you back in your business career you will finally be able to make headroads toward whatever business or career goals you have. While written especially for women, these books also have a lot of advice that men will also find valuable.
Throughout both books, Frankel offers practical advice and tips on how to overcome stumbling blocks, or incorporate new methodologies into your life. While many of her tips can be classified as common sense advice - it is advice that needs repeating because many women are still making many of the mistakes that she outlines in the text. Frankel offers solid advice that will serve you well in all aspects of your life. I highly recommend these empowering books for women of all ages and I feel that they will be especially invaluable for young women just embarking on their careers - as it will help them get started on the right foot.
