When you hear my unabashed enthusiasm and connection with today’s guest, Nicole Lapin, I think you will understand why we hit it off so quickly.
Already an accomplished journalist by her 30th birthday, Nicole expanded her reach with her 2015 release of the New York Times bestseller, “Rich Bitch.” Yes, that’s the title. Nicole’s premise is simple: She wanted to own that word and use it to attract people who might not necessarily pick up a personal finance book.
Nicole’s latest book, which is laugh-out-loud funny, is called “Boss Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan to Take Charge of Your Career.” Despite the title of both her books, they are not exclusively for women. Both are about taking charge, no matter who you are.
Boss Bitch is about being a boss without having a business card or dozens of employees to prove it. Here are some topics that Nicole explores:
- Be the CEO of YOU by running your life like a business
- Think like a boss by being entrepreneurial within an existing company
- Get your dream job—and crush it
- Be a hustler by exploring your passions and making extra money
Nicole’s writing jibes with one of the common themes of Better Off: When you invest in yourself, you’ll usually find it will pay more dividends than any conventional investment! Like diet and exercise, just a few small steps often leads to long-lasting improvements.
I had so much fun with this interview that I can’t wait for Nicole’s next book! I suspect it will have a certain word in the title…
