Whether you're stuck in a dead-end job or are living the career of your dreams, Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos is your go-to-guide for life as a woman in the working world. You'll hear the stories of incredible women who made that precarious climb up the ladder while keeping their fashionable stilettos and heart intact. Drawing from their stories and her own, Lynette Lewis shares the secrets to purposeful work, including how to:

  • create a purpose statement for your life and work
  • follow the "four principles of promotion"
  • establish a "personal board of directors"
  • keep enduring when unrecognized, unrewarded, and underpaid
  • discover gifts in surprising places, and more!

Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos will help you discover new joy, meaning, success, and satisfaction in your life's work. Why spend your time on anything less?
