First, we leaned in. Now we stand up. In this "much-needed combo of real talk, confessions, and lessons learned along the way" (Chelsea Handler), Jaclyn Johnson--the founder and CEO behind Create & Cultivate, the fastest growing online platform for millennial businesswomen--offers a rallying cry for a new generation of women who are redefining the meaning of work on their own terms.
Jaclyn suffered a massive blow in her early twenties. She was on an upward career climb and confidently moved across the country for a job--and then, was abruptly let go. Attempting to turn that closed door into an open window, she launched a company with a trusted business partner. Soon after, she discovered said business partner had made detrimental decisions to the company without her knowledge. Before she knew it, she was in the throes of a brutal business partner break up. She was only twenty-four.
Determined to bounce back, Jaclyn overhauled the mess that was her life and by the time she was in her early thirties, she had sold a company and launched the much-buzzed about Create & Cultivate platform--and advised and invested in multiple million-dollar projects at the same time. So, how did she do it?
, Jaclyn shows how she turned distrust into determination, frustration into fuel, and heartache into hard work--and how you can, too.
