Get Your Hustle On!
It’s Not Just About Getting a Job, But Building a Rewarding Career
The right smarts, skills, and experience in your field are great assets when you’re looking for or just starting a job, but they are not enough. No one’s going to hand you an opportunity and you shouldn’t feel entitled to one. Today’s young professionals and college students must master the “Five Cs” – competence, cachet, communication, connections, and coaches – to chart a course toward a flourishing career path.

What People Are Saying About Divas Doing Business
“Throughout my career, I’ve worked with many women whose stories inspire me. Drive and ambition tend to attract me, and these women’s dedication and commitment to their own success and that of others amaze me. My friend Monique Hayward stands out in these respects.”
–Morgan Freeman, Oscar-Winning Actor, Philanthropist, and Entrepreneur
“If you are a startup woman-owned business, you really ought to pick this book up. The stories and women that are featured will feed your entrepreneurial soul (especially since there are quite a few restaurant owners featured). If you’re a male business owner, this book will give you an inside look into how women business owners live and what’s important to them. Since women-owned businesses tend to fare better then men’s — you might learn a few things about how to keep your business going in this economy.”
– Ivana Taylor, CEO of Third Force
“Divas Doing Business is a home run! I loved it! I am in the process of starting a consulting firm while I keep my day job. Your book delivered and brought it all together. The stories were inspiring. But even more, they illustrate what it really takes to keep going, keep reinventing yourself and the business and ultimately use both success and failure to learn, grow and thrive.”
– Susan Bender Phelps
“This book is a must read for any woman who is considering starting her own business. I wish I had this book as a guide when I started my own business years ago. It would have saved a lot of angst!”
– Roberta Renard
