Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Sisterhood, Knowledge, Integrity, Respect, Tenacity and Substance = SKIRTS. Marshawn's all-woman entrepreneurial team won Season Four on The Apprentice . Her advice here is promoted as "savvy, shrewd, and straightforward" for "today's sassy yet sensible modern woman." The chapters themselves each start with a c-word, such as Confidence, Class, Captivation, and offer their own subcategories of acronym-based advice, all of which may crowd the reader with too many disparate concepts, from "The Four Ds of Branding Mistakes" to "T.A.G.S. #1: Target Your TALENTS" and "Lessons for ME (Motivations & Empowerment)." Readers who absorb the book in small portions may find just the advice they seek for a specific challenge. (Library Journal, December 15, 2008)
