In this book I want to have an honest conversation with women about what it really takes to get what you deserve out of life: how to define your worth and stick to it; how to find the courage to take risks - and how to build your backup plan; yow to ignore the chattering classes (and the fearmongers) and create your own destiny.
This is a book by Judge Judy on how to be the hero in your own story.
She starts by giving some background about her life ... being the daughter of a dentist who told her she was special and could be anything she wanted to be. She was the only female student in law school. Upon graduation, she and a fellow student got jobs with the same company ... he was in the legal department and she was in sales, though. She left that job to start a family. She yearned to get back to work and became a working mother and eventually "Judge Judy".
Judy then details her 10 laws of success:
- Be indispensable
- Think fearlessly and strategically
- Use your assets
- Don't blow the first impression
- Lighten up
- Practice punctuality
- Create an interesting person
- Demand your worth
- Do the right thing
- Leave a footprint
It was an interesting and fun quick read.
