There are plenty of business management books around that are aimed at working women, but none are as compact and concise as this latest offering from London entrepreneur Otegha Uwagba. Until now, women who have wanted specific business advice and tips have had to slog through larger books that only summarise the main points at the end of each chapter. While this can be beneficial for some readers, others who are time-poor may be deterred from spending the time necessary to learn the facts that these books impart.
That is why Little Black Book is such a gem.
Broken down into several short chapters- getting it done, overcoming creative blocks, building your brand, public speaking 101, money talks, back to school, the art of networking, and looking after number one- Uwagba doesn’t fluff around with her content. She lays out her points clearly and concisely, telling her readers the best ways that they can maximise their potential, and giving handy hints and tips to help them achieve their business and personal goals. She also provides a Q&A section towards the back of the book, with responses from successful business women, creatives, journalists and entreprenuers, as well as a resource guide (although this is mainly aimed at those in the UK, the USA and some larger European cities).
This little book is very informative and is the perfect guide for anyone (not just women!) looking for no-nonsense, clear business advice.
