Two minutes with Karen...

I wrote this book ...because I found that when I was working with other women many of them were struggling
with the same issues as I had throughout my career. But thinking it was 'just them'. I want to share what I
have learnt.
When I started in my career …I worked mainly with men, and found that the way that business worked
wasn't as natural for me as it was for them. But I didn’t relate it to gender, just that they ‘got’ the way that
business works.
Over time I discovered …men weren't going out of their way trying to be difficult for women to work with.
They just have a different way of doing things. Which has become accepted as the way business is done.
But it's not necessarily intuitive for Career Chicks.
I've learnt ...that people are incredibly generous with their time and knowledge if you really want to learn. But
you need to know what to ask.
I get excited when ...Chicks tell me they've followed the Career Chick Hot Tips and how they have
helped them.
My hottest tip that when you learn new things you have to be prepared to try them and
make them part of what you do.
