Are you a woman with big dreams but you’re unsure how to implement them? If you’re in the market for some inspiration, and Whitney Johnson’s new book Dare, Dream, Do might help you bridge that gap.
Johnson, who kindly judged the Top Women in Tech list for Femme-o-Nomics last year, is a celebrated blogger for Harvard Business Review. She is also a former investment banker turned analyst and the founding partner of Rose Park Advisors, Johnson is easily the poster child for successful businesswomen daring to make their dreams a reality. Like many young women looking for their big break, Johnson started off small: a secretarial gig on Wall Street, with no background in finance, a little bit of confidence, and very big dreams.
Having her business acumen, hard work and determination to thank, Johnson steadily climbed to the top but soon realized that unlike her, many women lacked the courage to breathe life into their ambitions. Based on these conversations with women in all walks of life, Johnson started a blog in 2006, which ultimately inspired the book.
Many readers are thrilled that one of their favorite bloggers has expanded to book format, and lauds Dare, Dream, Do as “a must-read” for both men and women. While a male reader calls Johnson’s work “inspiring, motivating, and practical,” a female reader celebrates the book as a “a tremendous resource for women who are wondering how to live a fully realized life.”
Dare, Dream, Do offers a three-step model centered around daring to disrupt your life, allowing yourself space to dream, and finally learning how to do, executing your dreams and bringing them to life. The book also includes extraordinary stories of women, and a practical framework to realize your full potential.
