Book Group: She Builds: The Anti-Hustle Guide to Grow Your Business and Nourish Your Life by Jadah Sellner
An incisive, deeply resonant debut novel about a nonconsensual sexual encounter that propels one woman’s final semester at an elite New England college into controversy and chaos―and into an ill-advised affair with a married professor.
A coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, Daisy Alpert Florin’s My Last Innocent Year is a timely and wise portrait of a young woman learning to trust her voice and move toward independence while recognizing the beauty and grit of where she came from.
Drawing on insights from leaders at top companies, Liz Wiseman explains what the most influential players are doing differently, and why with a little coaching this mindset is available to everyone who wants to perform at their peak.
Introducing Impact Players—standout contributors who create extraordinary value everywhere they work. You likely have seen this dynamic—two similarly capable individuals, both with talent and drive, but whose work is having a markedly different level of impact, but not everyone understands what causes this difference.
In She Builds, Jadah Sellner shares a new entrepreneurial model for women, centered around sustainable leadership—a practical framework you can use to create a business on your own terms, prioritize your well-being, and break free from the toxic culture that leads to burnout and overwhelm.
In Assume Nothing, award-winning filmmaker Tanya Selvaratnam bravely recounts the intimate abuse she suffered while in a relationship with former NY State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and uses reporting to examine the domestic violence crisis.
Selvaratnam details finding the strength to leave, risking her career, reputation, and safety, and how she struggled in the wake of the abuse to reclaim her voice. Assume Nothing scrutinizes the insidious way women learn to accept abuse, regardless of socio-economic status, age, gender, race, or religion. With singular sensitivity and nuance, Selvaratnam redefines what it means to be a victim of intimate violence.
