I received a free copy of Woman Up!: Overcome the 7 Deadly Sins That Sabotage Your Success through Goodreads First Reads.

Woman Up! is a quick and easy read that offers a lot of practical wisdom women (and even men) can use to improve their chances of landing a job and getting promoted. So, what are the seven deadly sins that commonly sabotage the success of most women? Cohen refers to them as follows:
1. Kindness Conundrum
2. Competency Curse
3. Perfectionism Prison
4. Affirmation Addiction

I received a signed copy of this book from a goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. And I honestly think it is amazing.

Woman UP! is a quick and helpful read, written in an engaging voice that feels less like reading and more like a conversation. Cohen has years of experience in both public speaking and one-on-one consultations about business help, and she uses that experience to make the book more engaging.

Cohen writes a list of what she believes are the seven deadly sins of busine

This is an excellent book to help anyone stop self-sabotaging behavior. It's in an easy to read format and keeps you engaged with stories of women who have made these "7 deadly sins" in their professional career. If you are looking to make changes to reach your full potential this book is for you.

The quotes were the best part of this book -- and the opening quote will stick with me always -- "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women" -- Madeline Albright. Quick read, and something I would recommend at least skimming.

I enjoyed the book and recognized several of the deadly sins as being mine! I would recommend this to others, Aimee includes practical suggestions for overcoming each of the 7 deadly sins. I'll be applying several of them in the coming weeks!

Super smart advice, she nails it on the head! Just wish I had known this earlier, but better now than never.
p.s. I've met Aimee in person, and seen her lead career decision classes. She's simply amazing!
