We all need to think more like entrepreneurs. Seeking and seizing opportunities, boldly taking risks, quickly changing course - achieving success today requires the kind of action-first, fake-it-'til-you-make-it ethos celebrated in the tech industry.
This formula is not typically a female one. Women tend to be cautious. We overthink our next moves, become paralyzed by fear, and simply don't act. We might be safer...but we're also stuck.
But, what if women embraced the startup model? What if we had the confidence to take chances, even if we knew we may fail fabulously? What if instead of agonizing over which step to take, we leapt forward quickly? Fearless and Free empowers women, showing us how we can all use lessons from Silicon Valley to pivot in our careers - and unlock a world of possibilities.
Author Wendy Sachs talked to a wide range of women who faced down fears, roadblocks, and failures...to reinvent themselves. Spanning industries and ages - from media maven Jill Abramson to Aminatou Sow of the Tech LadyMafia - the book weaves their insights and experiences together with current research and actionable advice. You'll learn how to:
- Capitalize on your skills and expand them
- Grow comfortable with being uncomfortable
- Sell your story
- Engineer serendipity
- Nurture your network
- Shake off setbacks
- Brand yourself - without bragging
- Build momentum
- Compete with digital natives
- And more
Being disciplined is no match for being disruptive. Whether you want out of a shrinking industry or into a business of your own creation, Fearless and Free helps you dream big - and act now.

A must read for every woman!
A very relevant and optimistic book in a time where careers are changing. Interesting stories that are relatable and insightful. Very entertaining!
Some good points here
The author uses some of her own experience but mostly stories from other people. There's nothing wrong with that but I would have preferred a more objective perspective of these as research more than how they were presented. Wendy Sachs obviously has wonderful insight and I'm glad she shared it. Many points from her and her friends' anecdotes are helpful to me.
The narration was somewhat off-putting. The narrator's voice was too deep and commanding for this read. It was far too dramatic as this was light and exciting content.

Inspiring! Engaging! Amazing!
This book has singlehandedly been the most inspiring piece of literature for me and my career. All of the stories of women doing great things, tools that we can leverage, platforms where we can engage; you NEED this book. I was sad when I reached the end. It became a place where I could go when I needed encouragement and inspiration to move forward on my path. I highly recommend this book!

Dated Story line
The more I listened, the more aggravated I became with the story line. It has story themes of "Let Me Tell You.....how great I am...how stupid I was...." I stopped at Chapter 17. It became more chapter after another of anecdotal accounts of career stories. The Preface was the best part.
