The Female Factor

Spexy Lady reads like she eats chocolate...voraciously! Business books by definition are usually one big snooze, but here's one that will keep you awake and leave you with plenty to mull over well after you've turned the last page.

"Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success" by Claire Shipman and Katty Kay, two very savvy journalists, is the new "it" book on the nightstands of female corporate heavyweights. Though much of what this pithy tome has to say applies to the corporate world, and not to die-hard entrepreneurs like Spexy Lady, there are some fab insights for any woman trying to balance it, family, personal time.

Love these nuggets to noodle on:

*Women "at the top" produce more profits and success in ALL economic categories!
*Women are the HOT commodity in today's workplace
*Women have more college degrees: undergrad now 60% women, 40% men
*Women do most of the buying...and buy MORE CARS than men!
*Women are better at building new relationships
*The war for talent favors women because of their education and unique style
*Women are time-famished and want to SLOW DOWN
*Women need to sometimes let "good enough" be "good enough"

And finally, my personal favorite, "Women need to learn to say 'no" without guilt."

Hats off to all of us spex-tacular women out there...trying to do it all.
