This is one for the ladies.

Emma Isaacs, Winging It, is a relatable, inspiring, step-by-step guide on how to get more out of your life.

This book is for those who are restless, curious, want to learn shortcuts to start their own business, be wealthy, find more time in their day, or learn to live more in their everyday life. Isaacs, founder and CEO of global organisation Business Chicks, draws on stories from her own life and the experiences of both men and women she has met, including her influential mentor, Sir Richard Branson.

Winging It is a great guide on how to take action and how to avoid getting stuck in the ‘not now’ trap. Isaac’s message: “We only get one shot. You may as well go for it”. Isaacs believes in the investment in women, lifting them up and helping them succeed to be the highest versions of themselves.

Filled to the brim with inspirational quotes, anecdotes, and wisdom, Isaacs walks alongside the reader, as they discover where they want to be in life. She helps you take the first step, teaching a profound change in mindset and how to cultivate positive self-talk.

Isaacs stretches your thinking and teaches you to trust your gut, to take a leap of faith, and she illustrates that everyone is just winging it with no clue as to what they are actually doing. This book is a motivational push to say yes, to figure the rest out later, and to move at a speed that makes you feel alive.

Winging It leaves you feeling like you can take on the world, outlining strategies, tips, and shortcuts on how to succeed at almost anything you desire, whether it be business, family or personal development.

This is a book to remind us that we are in the driver’s seat, and we should start now.
