The founder of “the ultimate conference for girl bosses everywhere” (Refinery29) gives you inspiration, advice, and tips on how to build the career of your dreams.
Jaclyn Johnson suffered a massive blow in her twenties. She confidently moved across the country for a job—and then was let go. Attempting to turn that closed door into an open window, she launched a company with a trusted business partner. But when she discovered that this business partner had made decisions that were a detriment to their company without her knowledge, she went through a brutal business breakup. And she was only twenty-four.
Determined to bounce back, she decided to overhaul the mess that was her life. By the time she was in her early thirties, she had sold a company, launched the much buzzed about Create & Cultivate platform—the fastest growing online platform and off-site conference for millennial women in business—and invested in multiple million-dollar projects. So how did she do it?
In Create & Cultivate the Career of Your Dreams, Jaclyn demonstrates how she turned distrust into determination, frustration into fuel and heartache into hard work—and how you can, too. Discover how to accept failure and learn how you can reconcile femininity with being a boss.
With stories from leading female entrepreneurs including Nicole Richie, Rebecca Minkoff, Kendra Scott, and Sophia Rossi, you will learn the tips and tricks from the best in the business, while cultivating the passion you need to succeed.
