What do you want to be when you grow up? It?s a familiar question we?re all asked as kids. While seemingly harmless, it has unintended consequences. It can make you feel like you need to choose one job, one passion, one thing to be about. Guess what? You don?t. Having a lot of different interests, projects, and curiosities doesn?t make you a ?jack-of-all-trades, master of none.? Your endless curiosity doesn?t mean you are broken or flaky.

And that is actually your biggest strength.How to Be Everything helps you channel your diverse passions and skills to work for you. Based on her popular TED talk ?Why Some of Us Don?t Have One True Calling,? Emilie Wapnick flips the script on conventional career advice.

How to identify the best career fit for your unique personality ? How to make a living and structure your work around many interests, especially in today?s uncertain job market?

How to handle common insecurities, including the guilt associated with losing interest in something you used to love and the challenge of explaining ?what you do? to othersNot fitting neatly into a box can be a beautiful thing. How to Be Everything teaches you how to design a life?at any age and stage of your career?that allows you to be fully you and find the kind of work you?ll love.
This booklet from Carolyn Howard-Johnson, a UCLA Extension Writers´ Program instructor for nearly a decade, helps authors love the project they most love to hate-writing a book proposal. She has taken the guessing out of the book proposal process. Now there is no need to take expensive, time-consuming classes or spend hours reading a tome to find the voice and format that will propel an author´s idea from a dream to reality. This slim book and thirty minutes will do it. Randy Eller, speaker and CEO of Eller Enterprises, says, ´´There is only one thing you need to learn from Carolyn Howard-Johnson to succeed...everything she says!´´ ´´Marketing is never easy... Well, it might be if you follow the easy steps CarolynHoward-Johnson offers up in The Great First Impression Book Proposal: EverythingYou Need to Know About Selling Your Book in Thirty Minutes or Less. Howard-Johnson´s bulleted lists are superior. They are easy to understand, easy to implement, and even easier to read. She means it when she says thirty minutes or less. I will recommend this book to all of our authors and potential authors.´´ ~ Georgia Jones, Editor in Chief, LadybugPress and NewVoices, Inc. This booklet is the result of multi award-winning author Carolyn Howard-Johnson´s extensive work with clients who hate writing book proposals and hate learning how to write them even more. She found herself coaching them through the process rather than doing it for them, for who could possibly recreate the passion an author feels for his or her own book better than the author? In doing so, she found she had written a booklet-not a tome-that took her clients only about thirty minutes to absorb. Voila! The Great First Impression Book Proposal was born.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ´Inspirational.´ Mary Portas ´Indispensable ... written with style and wit.´ Mishal Husain Most books about public speaking don´t tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don´t tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don´t tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don´t tell you how to own the room. This book does. From the way Michelle Obama projects ´happy high status´, and the power of J.K.Rowling´s understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf´s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey´s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here´s how.
