The Success Project is for people, particularly twenty, thirty and forty-somethings, working their way up and dealing with success, what it means, and with the fits and starts, bumps and bruises that accompany success. The book asks three things - 1) What does success mean? 2) What words of wisdom do you live by and/or offer to others? And 3) What part of your story tells us something about success? The result are perspectives on success, competition, money, career, work-life balance, women, diversity, introverts, bluffing, failure plus 171 pieces of advice culled from the years.
