“The Little Black Book of Success” is in its 7th printing.
I am proud to say that I was one of the people who was there at the beginning.
I had established a friendship with one of the authors, Elaine Meryl Brown who had written two previous novels.
When Elaine told me that she and two other colleagues were writing a book on leadership, that intrigued me, because I make my living teaching leadership to corporate, government and military managers and executives. This would be the first book on leadership written by black women for black women.
Also being in the public relations business, I wanted to help publicize this book.
Once the book was released and I read it, I knew this book would have a long life–it was that damn good!
“The Little Black Book of Success” was much bigger than I thought.
The authors, all high-level black executives, seek to “support women who do not always have access to coaches, mentors, or the ‘Old Boys’ Network,” and their professional advice is savvy and sensitive to the challenges women of color face in the workplace.
They offer self-affirming advice to rev up a career, complete with “MAMAisms”-what the authors describe as aphorisms and “familiar terms, both practical and spiritual, that we grew up with and can draw upon as we travel the road to leadership success.” The authors revisit and refresh familiar tips on staying positive, honing skill sets, having a plan of action and following through, networking, and avoiding common workplace dilemmas.
They also provide valuable advice on achieving work/life balance and finding guidance, mentorship, and support.
Offering sound advice, practical tools, and warm wisdom, this book will help black professional women get and stay on track and maximize their abilities.
When Elaine Meryl Brown, Marsha Haygood, and Rhonda Joy Mc Lean wrote “The Little Black Book of Success” they had hoped it would touch and transform the lives of women who wanted to get ahead in their careers, change careers, find a new job, or start a new business.
Not only did “The Little Black Book of Success” help numerous women AND men get promoted, navigate challenging situations, cultivate skills and land new positions, it was a national bestseller, an NAACP Literary Award nominee, and the topic of talk on traditional and social media that moved the authors into the national spotlight.
