Are you Poised for Success?
I had the pleasure of reading Jacqueline Whitmore’s latest book, Poised for Success.
Poised for Success is broken out into four parts: Presence, Polish, Professionalism, and Passion. Jacqueline believes that when mixed together, these are the ingredients that make a successful professional.
… the ones that get ahead are often those who are able to muster enough courage to take risks and connect from the heart.
In her latest release, Jacqueline takes our hand and guides us through the maze of the business world. If you think your looks, your voice, and the manner in which you communicate make no difference in where you will end up in life… think again.
This isn’t a preachy manual. This is a book that sheds light on how we are perceived by others no matter what industry we work in. A book that will become your friend. A book that I believe should be a required part of any business ensemble.
Presence isn’t something you put on in the morning and take off in the evening; it’s a part of your essence.
Jacqueline helps us examine our appearance, the way we sound, the way we will ultimately market ourselves to the world. She teaches us to communicate from the “outside in.” Helps us form, maintain, and grow professional relationships.
Rise and Shine: you’ll be impressed with the results, because others will be impressed with you.
But this book is more than just undeniably helpful tips. Weaved into the advice, are glimpses into the life of a woman who made herself what she is today – a success. Jacqueline shares personal stories from her life. Stories that show how she has put the knowledge gained over her lifetime to use.
In short, Poised for Success has become my everyday reference guide; the guide that will help me traverse the often daunting road of business, leading me toward my own personal success.
