Success Is About Bold Moves, Not Big Bucks

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Listen up ladies – one inspirational author has the advice to help you achieve all your aspirations.

In her book, Get Yours! The Girlfriend’s Guide to Having Everything You Ever Dreamed of and More (Broadway), Amy DuBois Barnett offers poignant pointers to help women achieve personal and professional success, but it was her own shaky start that gave the book its solid foundation.

Barnett, who is now editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, once quit a finance job to pursue a career in the fashion world, and recalls, “I was so unhappy on Wall Street, and for lots of years everyone thought I was crazy taking jobs that offered me less and less money. But I found that the more I do what I love, the happier I am.”

Despite her success story, – as managing editor of Teen People, Barnett became the first African American woman to head a major magazine – she says her confidence didn’t always shine so strongly.

She says, “I would never say I’ve always been confident, but life is the greatest ongoing adventure, and if you expect the best, than that’s what you’re going to get.”

Barnett’s book hits shelves September 25.
