A woman who wants to be successful must make sacrifices, but how can she determine which ones she'll be happy with five, ten, twenty years from now?
Mika Brzezinski, Morning Joe co-host and New York Times best-selling author of Knowing Your Value, has built a career on inspiring women to assess and then obtain their true value in the workplace. In her books and in her conferences, Mika gives women the tools necessary to advocate for themselves and their financial futures. But that is only the first step; once you know your value, you need to grow itboth professionally and personally.
Drawing on deeply revealing conversations with powerful and dynamic women, input from researchers and relationship experts, and her own wealth of experience, Mika helps women pinpoint their individual definition of success. She advises her readers to define the “professional value” that encompasses their worth in the workplace, and the “inner value” made up of their core beliefs and goals.
Women can stop feeling overwhelmed, overscheduled, frantic, and forever guiltybut only if they choose their objectives confidently and unapologetically, and focus their efforts accordingly. Mika encourages women to stop seeking the unobtainable “work-life balance,” and instead pursue a life of honesty and authenticity, where career and home life combine rather than collide.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Mika, truly hits the mark on the first principle women need to be tapped in with - their worth and how to leverage their value over their career. Even those in senior levels admit, while they may be relevant now, that's not enough. You have to consistently "sell yourself" authentically and oh yes "grow your value". Thank you for this reminder Mika.
Loved this! So helpful to women throughout all stages of their careers.
COMPLETE DRIVEL! I wouldn't have given it a 1/2 star!
