I believe that when it comes to women and work, there isn't one right answer. The only person who can create a life you'll love is you. Our grandmothers fought for the right to work. Our mothers fought for the choice to be in an office or to stay at home. Our generation is the first to fully embrace and celebrate the fact that our lives are multidimensional. Thanks to the women who come before us and paved the way, we can create the lives we want to lead -- which look different for each of us. I've been fortunate to be able to build my career around my passions, from real estate to fashion. But my professional titles only begin to describe who I am and what I value. I have been an executive and an entrepreneur, but also -- and just as importantly -- a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. To me, 'work' encompasses my efforts to succeed in all of these areas. After appearing on The Apprentice years ago and receiving a flood of letters from young women asking for guidance, l realized the need for more female leaders to speak out publicly in order to change the way society thinks and talks about 'women who work.' So I created a forum to do just that. This book evolves the conversation that started on IvankaTrump.com, where so many incredible women (and men!) have shared their experiences, advice, ambitions, and passions. Women who work lead meetings and train tor marathons. We learn how to cook and how to code. We inspire our employees and our children. We innovate at our current jobs and start new businesses. Women Who Work will equip you with the best skills I've learned from some of the amazing people I've met, on subjects such as identifying opportunities, shifting careers smoothly, negotiating, leading teams, starting companies, managing work and family, and helping change the system to make it better for women--now and in the future. I hope it will inspire you to redefine success and architect a life that honors your individual passions and priorities, in a way only you can.

A masterwork of horror by the scion of a noble house! With breathtaking disconnection from the lives of ordinary people, Trump's magnum opus showcases dreadful obliviousness to the issues of economic and racial inequality facing American women today. A fear-inducing ride of chills, once you contemplate the alternate facts and legacy of privilege and corruption that has led to the terrifying Trump family takeover of the White House!

I guess if you really want to read this its best to get it at the library. But it will be one of the lamest reads ever, waste of time. What a slimy little tuna she is. Pee Eew
