Not Done Yet! – How Women Over 50 Regain Their Confidence and Claim Workplace
For women over fifty, this invaluable guide combines practical advice, and exercises, and no shortage of sass that will inspire readers to beat ageist limitations and own their careers.
Despite advances made by women in the workplace, pay inequity and underrepresentation in top positions are still a reality. And, unfortunately, the situation looks worse for older women, who face what acclaimed author, podcast host, and sought-after coach Bonnie Marcus calls “the double whammy of gendered ageism.” As a woman over fifty, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do as you face down diminished responsibilities, decreasing visibility, and the looming specter of being “aged out.”
In this revelatory, inspiring, and savvy new book, Marcus is out to convince you that, in fact, you can do a whole lot. You can keep your job, advance your career, do the work you love and need to do―and defy all the ageist assumptions that suggest otherwise.
In Not Done Yet! the realities of ageing in the workplace are not sugar-coated. Straight-talking and savvy, Marcus tells it like it is, and doing so, empowers you to navigate the challenges. She begins by laying out the fears and assumptions that hold women back. Then she shares tips and exercises to stop staying small and stay in the game. Finally, she teaches you how to move from being a sadass to a badass, with practical advice about caring for yourself and fueling your confidence to flourish at work.
You are a woman over fifty, and you deserve a seat at the table. You have a wealth of wisdom and experience to offer your workplace. It may feel like the odds are stacked against you, but Bonnie Marcus is here to show you how you can overcome the challenges of gendered ageism. You are not done yet! It is up to you to prove it.
