Great Career Advice for Introverts and Others

One of the best books about career success that I have ever read. The author gives straight-forward advice in a fun and interesting way, incorporating her real-world experience. I definetly recommend this book for young people entering the work force or introverts seeking career change or promotions. This is a quick read, and very funny. Not your average job-advice book.

A great book

It's been a big hit around the office; it was even featured in a Women's Interactive Network monthly meeting my company sponsors. I can't wait for her next book.

"The Brand Called You" Even for the Shy and Introverted

This books helps you to understand yourself, develop your personal brand, market your brand and ultimately create a social network that leads to fulfilling opportunities rather than simply job hopping. She makes what Tom Peters started talking about years ago accessible to those of us that have trouble being "social". Ms. Weir stresses the importance of knowing yourself - strengths, weaknesses, goals and then applying them to your career. This intimate knowledge will transform you from the person blindly transitioning from job to job or even climbing the corporate ladder just because it is there to someone that can identify and find the perfect career/situation for themselves. This book is full of examples from the author's personal journey of overcoming her introversion and shyness and becoming a leader. Ms. Weir provides excellent guidance and hands-on activities to help you understand who you are and what message(s) you are projecting to the world. I love this quote from the author: "Self-consciousness and self-awareness are the gifts of the introvert. These gifts all the introvert to excel in situations where reflection and deep analysis are required." She takes the perceived negative of "introversion" and deftly turns it into an asset. She provides exercises to help you understand yourself. She provides tips to developing your personal brand. At the same time she is careful to to draw the line between self-promotion and self-branding. Branding, she defines, is how you differentiate yourself in the market. Finally, she provides concrete, real-world examples on network building. The author views herself as a product - she is a business, a brand. She runs her life as a business. She provides keen insight to those of us that have trouble getting off the sidelines and walking up to someone, looking them in the eye, shaking their hand and introducing themselves.

Delightful and Inspired

Certainly not your typical, dry business handbook. It's enjoyable to read with some amusing humor, some heartfelt confessions, and a lot of great advice!

Go years ahead in your career success

Meghan has learned at age 30 what took me an extra 15 years to learn. If you read her book you will cut years off of the advancement of your career by avoiding mistakes you may have made. Of particular importance to me were the sections on scheduling network time with individuals. Networking (relationship management) is the #1 method for gaining and maintaining loyal customers. If you need customers, you need to read her book! She also addresses dealing with business cards, a very overlooked topic, and one that everyone in business can learn from. Mostly though, she does what most introverts don't do -- she shares secrets about herself to the world! This makes for an interesting read, rare in a book on business!
