    Nicole Lapin wrote a bestselling book called Rich Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together...Finally a few years ago. I never read it, but I know it was popular. Lapin’s shtick is that she’s the energetic yet down-to-earth guide who can help you get your finances in order by telling it like it is, girlfriend! She’s worked for several major companies, including CNN and CNBC, but now she works for herself–which is why she wrote this follow-up book, Boss Bitch. The book Nicole Lapin wrote a bestselling book called Rich Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan for Getting Your Financial Life Together...Finally a few years ago. I never read it, but I know it was popular. Lapin’s shtick is that she’s the energetic yet down-to-earth guide who can help you get your finances in order by telling it like it is, girlfriend! She’s worked for several major companies, including CNN and CNBC, but now she works for herself–which is why she wrote this follow-up book, Boss Bitch. The book is divided into three sections, and though it’s advertised as a “12-step plan to take charge of your career,” the 12 chapters of Boss Bitch don’t actually all build off each other. Section 1 is about figuring out what career path you want to follow. At 20 pages, it is by far the shortest section of the bunch. Section 2 is about acting like the boss at your job, even if you aren’t (or even if you have several bosses above you). It covers branding, interviewing, pitching yourself (e.g., you need to have a two-sentence spiel at the ready describing what you do), looking the part, proper office etiquette, creating goals, motivating your team, and making good and timely decisions. Section 3 is about being the boss of your own business. It gives detailed info on how to start a business (including how to know you’re even ready to start a business…), how to build a good team, and how to make money. There’s also a surprisingly lengthy glossary of terms in the back. There is a lot of good info in this book, especially if you are considering starting your own business. I came to respect Lapin’s breadth of knowledge about business and money, as well as her willingness to put the details of her life out there. But, oh dear God, this book irritated me so much. Lapin is clearly writing to a younger audience, and her casual, often cheesy tone made this book borderline unreadable for me. She says things like: “You’re the pilot, so let’s fly, bitch.” “Boss Bitches are classy, sassy, and badassy.” “Throw your hair in a bun, crank up Rihanna, and handle it.” “The secret to having it all is realizing that you already do.” It’s just not for me. I’m not on this level. I don’t like being called “bitch.” And I don’t need someone to communicate with me like we’re “besties.” I’m only four years older than Lapin, but, while reading this book, I felt like we were worlds apart. In short, Boss Bitch is one for the younger crowd. If you are 20-something and looking for career guidance–especially if you are considering going the entrepreneur route–you will probably enjoy this book. But if you are a day over 28, I’d suggest skipping it. ARC provided through Amazon Vine. See more of my book reviews at www.BugBugBooks.com!

    I am really struggling with this review because I wanted to love it given my own current focus on starting my small business.

That advice and honest discussion was really what struck me as most useful about this one. I did, however, struggle a bit with the tone and voice of the book. It felt very cheesy in places and it took away a bit from her overall credibility. I wish she’d found a better balance between her wanting to be hip and her wanting to be a mentor. I just didn’t resonate with the tone of the book. I did really find quite a bit of guidance, especially relevant as I’m in the process of starting a business. I did like the suggestions and the stories but I wish there was less of the more cheesy stuff. It would have made more of an impression on me if that was the case. However, it could also be a generational thing … perhaps the ideal audience is someone in their 20s or 30s? I’m in my early 40s and just didn’t find this one to be the best fit for where I am in my life. But, overall, the content is there if you can get past the voice.

    This is a book of empowerment for women, it is a guide on how to own your work and yourself.

    How many times is this woman going to repeat the words Boss Bitch?! Seriously stop! Boss Bitch on repeat, her enthusiastic tone and use of profanity were very annoying! We get it! You think you are a badass with a dgaf attitude. Maybe she had some really good advice? I will never know because this audiobook made me want to put her Boss Bitch ass on mute!

    Not Just for Women In the opening pages of the audiobook, BOSS BITCH, Nicole Lapin says that she is going to be addressing women but knows some men may listen to the book (I did). I found the writing and storytelling well-done. As you may be able to tell from the title, Lapin’s brand includes cursing—not tons of it but the F-word and others crops into this book.

If you don’t want to hear such things avoid. I found Lapin’s storytelling style and information entertaining and worth hearing. Her forth-right style is refreshing. For example late in the book, Lapin tells about launching a Cash smartwatch on the Home Shopping Network and investing lots of staff time and money in the project—only to have it fail—mostly because she failed to test the product before selling it. Skipping this basic step led to a failure of the product. She learns from these failures and her positive experiences. BOSS BITCH is a valuable listening experience and I recommend it.

    A healthy inspiration for both women looking to open their business or just to upgrade and adjust their career plans, Boss Bitch offers mind opening and straight forward professional advice. When you are embarking on a new career, you need honesty and reliable support. Of course it is amazing to have your own business and be your own boss, but failures and bankrupcy can be as real as your dream of becoming a billionaire. 'There's no one-size-fits-all-path for your career', says Nicole Lapin and s A healthy inspiration for both women looking to open their business or just to upgrade and adjust their career plans, Boss Bitch offers mind opening and straight forward professional advice. When you are embarking on a new career, you need honesty and reliable support. Of course it is amazing to have your own business and be your own boss, but failures and bankrupcy can be as real as your dream of becoming a billionaire. 'There's no one-size-fits-all-path for your career', says Nicole Lapin and she is perfectly right. Taking the right decision is what you need, based on your skills and professional background, but do it fast because 'as they say, the road of life is paved with flattened squirrels who couldn't make a decision'. Being a boss (bitch) means more than giving orders and having a top career enjoying the pleasure of an office and many (frightened) employees, it means an attitude and a way of life, while you 'run your life like a business'. 'A boss mentality is all about how you feel and carry yourself', and this idea is one of the best I got in the last months. It means being in charge of yourself in a majestic way, having the right screening capacity to make choices and decide, while eliminating the background noise of naysayers and unproductive thoughts. 'No, you shouldn't change yourself or your personality drastically for any job (or relationships). But you should accentuate those parts of yourself that align with the company's brand and culture'. I am usually a very speed reader, but I wanted to take my time for carefully going through all the advice in the book, as I am right now in a very important career turning point. Put the swearing beside - but it is in fact a good example of being yourself and showing your way without complexes, regardless what people say - you will find a lot of extraordinary advice about tailoring the best outfit for your career and life. It starts with the very beginning of creating the plans and identifying what you are good at, and continues with shaping the right career path of being more than a manager, but a leader with a strong voice at the business table, inspiring other people and writing your own business story. It is more or less a question of defining success and happiness and moving forward accordingly, while staying with the feet deep into the ground. I will definitely read this book more than once, as it really helps channeling the real you and creating both complex life and career opportunities. It is the kind of useful book that you wish you had in your hands before starting your business. Disclaimer: Book offered by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    From the very first sentence - "To my former self, who would be proud of me now," to the last - And the princess lived happily ever after in her own big castle and with all her own money and she took care of herself--the end," this book turned out to be something I would love to give my daughter one day.

I appreciate this book for what it is, and it has some good takeaways- like how to ask for a raise and set boundaries. But the voice of the writing seemed a bit forced. I'm all for reclaiming the title of "bitch" form something bad to something powerful, but the abundant sprinkling of the word (example: "so what's your story, bitch?") seemed like the author was trying a bit too hard to be Britney and we didn't get a chance to see her true voice come out. I have all of the respect for Nicole, and would love to pick up her next book. But I was hoping this would be something I could give as a gift to any woman--not just someone I have a 18 year relationship with that knows I don't think it's appropriate to drop 'bitch' into everyday conversation. I look forward to see if Ms. Lapin has more books in store. Maybe her next one we'll get to see her true voice.

    3 stars based on much I personally found this book useful. Lapin breaks up her second self-help book into three sections: discovering your inner boss, being a boss and being the boss of your own business. The first section was very helpful for me as I am in between jobs and in that quarter life crisis phase. Lapin had a couple different exercises to think about what it is your good at, passionate about and jobs to match those skills -- and I love me some reflection exercises!

I skimmed "being a boss" as someone who works in public service and strives to move up throughout my career, there were helpful tips but also some that were a bit too beginner (i.e. how to send professional emails -- although I know too many adults who probably do need to read this). The final section was very focused on discovering your start up idea and how to move forward with it, which would be great for a new entrepreneur -- yet again was really basic, so would not be the only resources needed to start a new venture. Recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration in any (or a combo of) these stages in their career, but is more of a good skimmer than an in depth resource on any one topic.

    Women emancipation has become a modern-day reality. The effect is we are seeing more and more women joining careers and stirring a significant impact both socially and economically.

Boss Bitches is about how you can join this great league. Contrary to the belief of many, being a boss is not all about running a company or controlling hundreds of employees. Nicole Lapin deconstructs this theory in her 12 steps plan on how to take charge of your career. Through her powerful writing and storytelling skills, Nicole hits hard on the fact that you don’t need much to be successful. That all you need is to get out there to develop a strategic success plan, and you are good to go! I loved how she conjoins her financial and personal experiences to bring to light the fundamental things we all know but often take for granted. Boss Bitch is an ideal inspiration text for those seeking to get their lives and finances in control. Get a copy today and get a chance to learn from an expert.

I appreciate that "Boss Bitch" is broken into sections and also that Nicole's writing lends itself to succinct, direct snippets of advice which are perfect for personal mantra and vision board building. If you're on the fence, allow me to give you a push -- Nicole is an honest, confidence inspiring writer and you will not regret investing your time into this book.

    To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. I figured it was just another typical "self-help" book of getting your life together with simple ideologies I've known and studied since the age of 18. However, I was shocked. This book is definitely what I needed since I hit the age of 24 and trying to figure out my life as a budding creative/entrepreneur in a dog eat dog world. Her approach is engaging and funny, yet profound and simple enough to apply to your everyday life To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book.

You don't necessarily need 100 employees under your belt to be considered a "boss bitch", it's merely an attitude of perseverance, smarts, and the openness to try new things. Would I recommend this book? Yes. Why? It's needed for the entrepreneurs out there who are questioning their very existence as a business woman.

    I will start by saying there is some beneficial information in this book, but it wasn’t for me. As someone who works in the banking industry I already had knowledge of many topics discussed in this book. If you want to know the details of starting a business this would be a good book for you. This book covers topics a lot of people don’t even think about and being someone who works with this information on a daily basis I can tell you that she is correct.

If you want to know how to start a business I would recommend reading this book and not listening to the audio book.

    I needed Sections 1-3 of this book when I was 22, definitely. Her templates for emails and how to negotiate your salary are awesome. I love that she bootstrapped her way into her career. But this book is geared towards 25-year-old women living in big cities and working in corporate America. Which is great, I'm glad for them. It just makes me think about the 25-year old women who live in rural America and are trying to level up by staying put. Someone needs to write the book for them.

Great nuggets of information, but this section could be an entire book by itself.

    "Boss Bitch," by Nicole Lapin. Not my typical read but a good one for sure. This book is a great read for any woman whether a CEO, entry level employee or stay at home mom. Nicole guided, inspired and definitely motivated me. Her stories are funny and relatable and her advice is understandable and easy to implement (for the most part! The whole starting your own business is the ultimate challenge). Reading this book felt like a conversation with my best girlfriends. I would definitely recommend "Boss Bitch," by Nicole Lapin.

That's not what this is about. This is a discussion on leading, on empowering yourself to take the next step in your role, your career and your life.

    I found Boss Bitch very inspiring and motivating. I like how the book is broken off into many parts where it first talks about your personal life. Think taking care of your personal life and yourself helps build the other parts of your life. I like who the book also gives you specifics and steps to go from so you do get lost. I also like the writing style and way that the book is very securely but more a conversation.

    Perhaps this would have been better read rather than listened to as an audiobook. The grating enthusiasm was nearly unbearable. But really what did I expect from a book with such a perky, in your face title? I found the first couple of chapters a little inspiring but now I don't remember them. Then I got bogged down in a chapter about how to write effective, bossy emails. I don't know if I'll ever finish this book. Maybe I will read some reviews and see if it's worth my time.

    Unsure of the star amount. This is about how to start your own business (not what I was looking for, but it was still a very readable and informative book). Would recommend as a starting point for what starting a business would be like - but is U.S based (talks about health and pension from U.S rules only). Easy read, has some relevant points about owning your current work situation when you are an employee, not the boss with tips such as asking for a raise.

    I will only say this.... This book might not be helpful for experienced professionals. And by experienced I mean who have been in the corporate world for more than 15-20 years. This is for people who are new and want to be able to fit themselves in this new world called corporate, where you have to fake it to make it. But when to fake it and when not to fake it is very important, this book is funny and also teaches you the secrets of how to be your own boss.

    Good book with lots of personality. If you're a first time boss, new to management or looking for advice of simply managing e v e r y t h i n g, this is worth the read.Enjoyed Nicole's stories on her mis-steps, her f*uck ups, and most valuable lessons learned. She comes across as relatable and she owns it. All of it.

    Nicole's book was engaging, thoughtful and funny. I made a number of dog eared pages. Section 3: Being the Boss of Your Own Business wasn't very helpful to me but the other two sections will definitely help me with my career as well as my other professional and personal endeavors. I now look forward to reading Nicole's other book! Disclaimer: I won this book via a Goodreads Giveaway :-)

    I wasn't really a fan of this one. I understand, and can respect, that she wants to present her message in her own way, and that means swearing. I just think it undermined some of the things she was saying. You can't talk about being professional, etc., but then swear. I know some clients or bosses will not care if you swear in front of them, but others will most definitely care.

    (Another) Fantastic book from Lapin providing a great plan on running your life like a business and owning it mentally, being entrepreneurial at work, putting the work in, and other actionable steps and insights of prepping for, starting, maintaining, and growing your company. As always, with user-friendly language and a glossary at the end. I like her style. Saving for reference ;)

    This book had more meat to it than I expected. A great introduction on how to start a business explained in simple terms. This book aims to empower women from all backgrounds to realize they're fully capable of succeeding in entrepreneurship if they put in the work. Loved it for that! The whole "bitch" thing wasn't really my cup of tea though.

    I loved Nicole Lapin's book "Rich Bitch," so I was excited when I was given the opportunity to read her newest book, "Boss Bitch," before it's March 21st release date. The book is divided into three sections with 12 steps total (2 steps to "Being the Boss of You," 5 steps to "Being the Boss at Work," and 5 steps to "Being the Boss of Your Own Business"), and written in Nicole's signature sassy voice (expletives and all)! I loved the advice that "Being the Boss at Work" offered; creating a persona I loved Nicole Lapin's book "Rich Bitch," so I was excited when I was given the opportunity to read her newest book, "Boss Bitch," before it's March 21st release date.

I loved the advice that "Being the Boss at Work" offered; creating a personal brand that doesn't clash with your job or your company's brand, how to be innovative even in companies that don't value innovation, email etiquette, how to negotiate your salary (and beyond!), and how to build a valuable network vs just 'networking.' "Being the Boss of Your Own Business" is invaluable for those actively starting their own businesses, but also an excellent resource to have for those who have ever contemplated doing so. Complex concepts are laid out in an easy to read way. I may not be ready to start my own business now, but I will definitely consult this book when I am. I highly recommend Nicole Lapin's book "Boss Bitch" for anyone looking to get ahead in their careers, build their own business, or just rock the job they have.
