5 Career Books To Read (Or Listen To) When You Need A Little Kick In The Tush

Helloooo, is anybody home? I know I haven't posted in a while but like all good things, I'm back and better than ever! OK, now that I'm done exaggerating let's get to it.

If you've been feeling a little stagnant in the career sector because you're at a job you're not happy in, you feel unfulfilled, or because you see people your age (apparently) doing bigger and better things than you, I'm here to tell you, it's OK!

We all experience this sentiment at one point or another and I honestly think it means you have more ambition than you know what to do with, and you probably just need a kick in the right direction.

Reading is a great way to unwind and to entertain yourself, but as we all know, it's also a great way to learn new things. If you need the universe to push you in the right direction career-wise, I have a few books to recommend.

These are books that I have listened to myself — yes, I am obsessed with Audible  and they've definitely helped get my thinking on the right track.

"Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It In Your Career. Rock Social Media." By Eliza Licht

This book is one of my favorites because it takes you on the chicest career journey ever. You'll be transported into a Devil Wears Prada-esque universe where you'll learn how to establish your brand, build a social media following and ultimately, you'll learn to leave your mark

I recommend this read to those who like a little laugh along with their learning. Get the book here. Listen to it here

"Feminist Fight Club An Office Survival Manual For A Sexist Work Place" By Jessica Bennet

Like the title says, this book will surely make you a bad ass career b*tch! It's tough being a woman in the workplace because often times, you have to deal with the narrow-minded and sometimes antiquated thinking of the men in that office. Feminist Fight Club will help you ignore the haters and get together with your fellow ladies in order to fight the patriarchy, one glass of rose at a time.

"The Big Life" By Anne Shoket

Get ready for an inspiration overload. This book is perfect for ladies in their 20s and 30s trying to kick ass in their careers. Shoket was the editor-in-chief at Seventeen mag for a while, so if you're in media and want some helpful advice alongside some really cool stories from other bad ass babes, then this is the book for you!

"Crush It!" By Gary Vaynerchuk

If you're not a fan of no-nonsense advice, this book isn't for you. But if you don't mind someone telling you — with absolutely no filter — how things really are, then I suggest you pick up a copy of Crush It! by Gary Vee. In his book, Gary teaches you how to turn your hobby into a lucrative business by using your trusty old social media sites/apps. This book is a little older than the rest, but it's still as relevant as any of the books I mentioned. And if you want some extra advice, I suggest you get the audiobook because there, Gary gives extra tips that are not in the book.

"You Are A Badass" By Jen Sincero

Success coach Jen Sincero teaches you how to channel your inner badass in this book. Sincero herself went through a moment of not knowing what she wanted to do with her life before becoming a life coach and successful author. Like Gary Vee, Sincero is no-nonsense and you can expect a lot of snark and sass alongside some useful career and self-improvement advice. My favorite thing about this book is that it's an easy read and will quickly become one of your faves.

I hope you guys liked my suggestions and pick up one, or all, of these books.
