Offering a framework for identifying and making the kind of bold moves that will get your career off to its best start.
This book offers a framework for identifying and intelligently making the kind of bold moves that will get your career off its best start.
Many women enter the workforce feeling like they can never make a mistake. As a result, they avoid risks—volunteering for a major presentation, asking for a raise or a promotion, etc. But betting on yourself is an essential part of getting ahead and risk-taking is a skill you need to master.
In this book, Christie Hunter Arscott equips readers with the ability to differentiate between reckless and intelligent risks using an actionable model built around three mindsets: A Curious Mindset, A Courageous Mindset, and An Agile Mindset. With a step-by-step method for taking risks and assessing rewards, Hunter Arscott’s approach gives women a
flexible and repeatable framework to guide them through this critical career skill.
Many women enter the workforce feeling like they can’t make any mistakes. As a result, they don’t take risks in the crucial early stages of their careers because any risk begins to feel like a bad bet, especially for BIPOC women who are disproportionately penalized.
The workplace is not a meritocracy—but not all hope is lost.
Begin Boldly empowers women to take chances on themselves and turn risk-taking into an enlightening and empowering antidote for self-doubt. Because, as Hunter Arscott reminds us, the biggest risk for early career women is not taking any risks at all.
