You always knew you’d do big things.
You want The Big Life—that delicious cocktail of passion, career, work, ambition, respect, money and a monumental relationship. And you want it on your own terms.
This mission of this book is to create a sisterhood of young women, like you, who are working through the most complex issues in their lives together. As part of the research for this book, I have had a series of dinners at my apartment in New York City. Each dinner is a group of about 6 or so, friends of a friend of a friend, who come together to talk about the itchy emotions around money, sex, dating, love, friends, marriage, and of course, work.
The intimacy of the conversations with these women and dozens of others has helped the advice in The Big Life evolve from how-to to me-too.
