Synopsis

Mrs Moneypenny's Careers Advice for Ambitious Women by Heather McGregor, Mrs. Moneypenny

Welcome to the world of Mrs Moneypenny, where it's all about who you know and what you know. Where you can't have it all, but you have to do it all. And where women wanting to reach the top need to learn to say 'no'. The high-flying, uber-connected Financial Times columnist and star of Channel 4's Superscrimpers is on a mission to help you get ahead at work. In this incisive, hilariously frank book, Mrs Moneypenny tells you everything you need to know about taking control of your career. From nurturing your personal network and getting noticed, to the art of outsourcing and understanding numbers, she distills a lifetime's experience of running businesses and shaping careers into original, practical advice. 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.
