Book Review: Winging It – Emma Isaacs

Earlier this year I attended my first Business Chicks event to listen to Samantha Wills speak. As someone who adored her jewellery, I knew I had to attend when I saw she was going to be coming to Perth for a speaking event. I bought my ticket even though I didn’t know a single thing Business Chicks, the company which was holding the event.

As I discovered, it’s an incredible business which promotes women in business and provides a way for women to connect, learn and be inspired. I was enchanted on the night by watching someone who I admire speak and then I discovered that the CEO of Business Chicks, Emma Isaacs had released her own book, Winging It and I knew I had to read it.

Now, I wouldn’t consider myself to be an entrepreneur at all however, I found this book to be insightful, inspiring and transparent. With a seemingly ideal balance of ideas, stories, tips and quotes, Isaacs’ passion for business and empowering women shines through the pages.

Issacs’ offers her views on time management, valuing your time and those around you, doing your best rather than pretending you can do everything and the importance of being quick to learn when you fail rather than wallowing in defeat. Regardless of whether you’re in business or an employee, this book provides techniques and tips which will help you to boost your productivity, get clear on what your priorities are and how to say no.

When we allow ourselves to be open to opportunities and stepping out of our comfort zones, we wing it. It’s a reminder that it’s okay to be vulnerable and not know what you’re doing. I think we believe that we will be experts whenever we try something new but this is when we should be more like a sponge, absorbing as much information as we can. Failure isn’t a thing for when we don’t succeed, we simply learn what didn’t work. It allows us to try again with more knowledge.
