Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Making It

"Live a balanced life. You cannot have it all or do it all, at least not at the same time. Recognize that an unhappy personal life often carries over into job performance. Taking care of your mental and physical health is just as important as any career move or responsibility, generally more so."
(page 246, Kindle edition)

"Set aggressive but achievable results."
(page 248, Kindle edition)

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Eating for Business and Pleasure

"When you entertain business associates, it is of course not the same thing as entertaining close friends or relatives, but the responsibilities for the host are similar. Here are some tips: Be yourself. Smile. Show that you are having fun and be gracious and generous, making your guests feel welcomed. Don’t try to overdo it or you’ll be set for failure. Simplicity is best both with your theme/ d├ęcor and food. Planning is key. Lists help. Avoid catering, and personalize by trying to make at least two-thirds of the meal yourself in order to cultivate an intimate atmosphere. Buy dessert if you must. A little bit of foresight for the details will help enormously."
(page 215, Kindle edition)
