As the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine for 14 years, Kate White led the iconic women's glossy straight to the top. And now she's a best-selling author of career and suspense books that you just can't put down. How did she do it? In today's show she shares how her gutsy instincts, risk taking, rule breaking, love of data and strong business skills blended to create the special sauce that was her personal secret to success. Kate shares how this mindset, as well as other strategies, fueled her accomplishments at Cosmopolitan and how they can help you, too. Then, if you want to take Kate's advice to the next level, we highly recommend you pick up her latest book, The Gutsy Girl Handbook, to learn how you can apply her tactics to negotiate your salary, manage your time, learn from failure, reduce your worrying, shed the "good girl" instinct and more.
 
Listen in to learn how, like Kate, you can become better, bigger, bolder and more bad ass in everything you do, and how it just might very well be the shift in your career path that you need to nail (and kick ass) at that job of your dreams.

Joi Gordon was working as an assistant district attorney, pursuing a legal career when one day she realized, this wasn’t her dream job. Then, while watching a morning show she learned about a nonprofit that supplied low-income women with a perfect interview outfit.  As someone who knew the power a great suit could bring, she was intrigued. 

Now, Joi has served as the CEO for Dress for Success for the past two decades. The organization, which spans more than 156 cities in dozens of countries is often referred to as the “Starbucks of the nonprofit world.”

In today’s episode of I Want Her Job The Podcast, Joi shares why she’s a lover of learning, why the right dress or suit can make all the difference and the importance of following your own path.
