EVENT: The New York Times Bestselling Author Kate White will appear for the Publication of her New Book I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve on Monday, September 23, 2013 at 7:00 PM at Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary, 707 W 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64112. This Event is Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and KC Magazine in partnership with Go Red For Women.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Kate White is a force of nature — a feisty, irreverently witty, savvy mentor on a mission to help women get more out of their lives — in the workplace and at home. For gutsy girls just starting out to those rising to the next level and giving their success legs, Kate shares the secrets of success, and how you can love every minute of it. In her career running five major magazines, including her former job as editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, she has lived it all.
I SHOULDN’T BE TELLING YOU THIS offers the techniques for success: how to get it, go big with it, and — yes, Kate means this — savor it. (There’s no fun upside in working yourself so hard you don’t enjoy your life.) Combining fresh and candid advice, reality checks, and proven principles with juicy behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Kate provides the steps to creating success, including valuable insights on how to:
• Land a job you’re truly passionate about
• Go big or go home by making the bold moves
• Always ask for what you want and get it — the money, responsibility, title changes, benefits, bonuses, and perks
• Tackle a project that no one else will and nail it — and make sure your boss knows it
• Use “bitch envy” to your advantage
• Radiate confidence and get buzzed about (without worrying what other people think)
• Develop a “golden gut” to break the rules the right way, so you always come out shining
• Manage your career and not just your job (it’s a whole different league!)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kate White is recognized internationally as not only the recently retired Editor-In-Chief of Cosmopolitan, the Bestselling young women’s Magazine in the world, but also the critically acclaimed author of both fiction and nonfiction books. Few high-profile editors have successfully balanced the rigors of overseeing a major magazine with a thriving and independent writing career. It all began when Kate won Glamour magazine’s Top Ten College Women contest and appeared on the cover. She earned a position at the magazine and quickly rose from editorial assistant to feature writer and columnist. After holding key jobs at several national magazines, she became an editor-in-chief, running four magazines (including Redbook) before taking the helm at Cosmopolitan in 1998. In the 13 years she was at Cosmo, guaranteed circulation has grown by 700,000. Drawing on experiences from her successful career, Kate published the Bestselling career bible, Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead… but Gutsy Girls Do. Kate also has a passion for writing fiction. Penning her first novel, If Looks Could Kill, in 2002—which was selected as Live with Regis and Kelly’s first Reading with Ripa Bookclub Pick—Kate introduced her feisty and irreverent sleuth, Bailey Weggins. Bailey went on to solve more grisly murders and entertain readers in A Body to Die For (2003), Til Death Do Us Part (2004), Over Her Dead Body (2005), and then again in Lethally Blond (2007), all New York Times Bestsellers. The most recent Bailey Weggins mystery, So Pretty It Hurts, was published March 2012. Kate’s first stand-alone thriller, Hush, was published by HarperCollins in March 2010 and became a New York Times Bestseller. Her next thriller, The Sixes, published in 2012, is the story of Phoebe Hall, who takes a job teaching at a college and discovers a secret society on campus that may be responsible for several grisly murders. Kate’s writer’s eye has been described by The New York Times as “scathingly observant,” capturing “the mood…with a verisimilitude some of her peers might recognize.” The Los Angeles Times says of Kate’s work: “It’s like devouring a box of chocolates!” Through her magazine work and her books, Kate White has influenced at least two generations of women with her unique honesty, passion, and imagination. She is the winner of the Matrix Award for Outstanding Achievement in Communication as well as the Woodhall Institute Award for Ethical Leadership. Kate is married with two children.
