Overview

Star Financial Times columnist Mrs. Moneypenny says the smartest thing women can do for their careers is to stop trying to “have it all” – time is scarce and you can’t excel both at work and at home, so stop feeling guilty already! Instead, she shows you how to figure out what you want, make your choices and own them in her latest book, Sharpen Your Heels: Mrs. Moneypenny's Career Advice For Women.

As a successful business owner and mother of three, Mrs. Moneypenny knows her stuff and takes her responsibility to help other women very seriously. She draws from her own career and from her circle of “superwomen” to tackle the realities of being a career woman – even if it means doing paperwork in the loo.

Among the essentials:

-How to say NO – even to those you love – but also how to not take “no” for an answer when it comes to your priorities.

-How to effectively network with men who do their socializing while hitting the links.   

-How to stop trying to achieve the mythical work-life balance. Your work is part of your life – so figure out how you can integrate family and work commitments.

Whether you're just starting out or a rung from the top, whether you're a store manager or a CEO, let Mrs. Moneypenny be your ultimate mentor - and guide you to success.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
It may be called Sharpen Your Heels, but the message of this career-advice book for women is blunt: To get to the top, you need to do all the things that men do to get there, and then some. Ably spelling out the 'then some' is Mrs. Moneypenny...Moneypenny truly aims this book at women who are shooting for the top rungs of the career ladder...[She] dispenses valuable advice on making connections, what sort of education to pursue, financial literacy and saying "no," a difficult one for women.

Meet the Author

For twelve years Mrs. Moneypenny has been entertaining readers of the Financial Times with her views on everything from Wellington boots to waxing. She runs her own business while juggling a golf-obsessed husband and three children, whom she lovingly refers to as Cost Centers 1, 2 and 3. Her one-woman show has run at the Edinburgh Fringe, off Broadway and at the Hay Festival.

Dr. Heather McGregor is a leading London headhunter who owns and runs Taylor Bennett, an executive search firm. She also teaches from time to time at the Cass Business School and the London Business School, and chairs Career Academies UK, an educational charity.

Strangely, no one has ever seen Mrs. Moneypenny and Dr. McGregor in the same place at the same time.
