My current read is this very inspiring book that I found called “The Little Black Book of Success.” So far, it is motivating and a great read on my train ride in the mornings and evenings. Being a young black professional who strives for success, having dealt with the politics of the professional, educational, business or everyday dealings, I found it a good source of guidance to read what the experienced authors, Elaine Meryl Brown, Marsha Haygood, Rhonda Joy McLean and Angela Burt-Murray had to say. I will update you on how this read went for me, when I’m done or you can purchase your own copy below so we can read it together 🙂 !

In this engaging and invaluable “mentor in your pocket,” three dynamic and successful black female executives share their strategies to help all black women, at any level of their careers, play the power game—and win.
Rich with wisdom, this practical gem focuses on the building blocks of true leadership—self-confidence, effective communication, collaboration, and courage—while dealing specifically with stereotypes (avoid the Mammy Trap, and don’t become the Angry Black Woman) and the perils of self-victimization (don’t assume that every challenge occurs because you are black or female).
Some leaders are born, but most leaders are made—and The Little Black Book of Success will show you how to make it to the top, one step at a time.
