“Rocking Your Role” sets out to go beneath the surface of what it means to be a Female Breadwinner. This book doesn’t only provide practical tips and case studies, but is a ‘how to’ in the form of tried and tested transformational activities and reflections to guide you to success. Men and women have found it an insightful read for the modern family to craft the life they want.
Rocking Your Role is for you if:
- You are serious about actually making that change in your career, life or business, and taken planful action.
- Growing your confidence and overcoming fear of failure, financial worries, guilt, not being liked and not knowing enough is your dream.
- Gaining a promotion or new role that plays to your strengths and potential is important to you.
- You want to be an authentic, inspiring, adaptive leader who truly sees the big picture and brings others with you.
- Starting or growing your own business, non-profit, social enterprise or portfolio career is your goal.
- You want to focus on Work AND Life.
“A rare and powerful book covering an immensely important subject in a personal, practical and very moving way. I was inspired by reading it and left breathless by the achievements of the author and the women whose stories she tells.”
Dr Ann Limb OBE DL, Chair, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership
“Reading this book lifted the clouds of expectations, guilt, imaginary limitations …. it liberated me to pursue my own personal dreams while still providing for my family.”
Nadine Juignet, Business Development Advisor at Hewlett Packard
“Jenny’s insightful work is clearly founded on a deep understanding of the dynamics of relationships and careers, and on the ways in which people develop and learn, as well as on her interviews with women specifically for this book. I wish Rocking your Role well; a book like this, should it become a top seller, will do more to transform the lives of women, and those of their partners and families, than any number of Government commissions.”
Philip Whiteley, Business author
“A series of interactive transformative exercises drawing from the world of coaching and psychology will support personal and professional development for all individuals. Jenny has a great writing voice and has bought a human touch to a taboo subject with great sensitivity and creativity.”
Jackee Holder, Coach, Author, Coach Trainer, Speaker
“Jenny Garrett charts the rise of the female main earner (ME) in her highly engaging exploration of female breadwinners. That a fifth of women in the UK now earn more than their partners is significant, yet we hear little about this. Garrett’s book illustrates why this is something we should celebrate, and yet we are resistant to do so.This book is an invaluable and inspiring source for those who will, either through choice or by chance, embark on this exciting route. She offers advice and space to reflect and challenges one of the modern day taboos.”
Mary Honeyball MEP, London MEP and Labour European spokesperson on women
“From the moment I started reading Rocking Your Role I was totally absorbed, recognising so many of the issues that Jenny refers to within this clearly written and practical book. She takes the reader on a journey which makes you question so many things about yourself but in a way that energises you to step back and think about your work life balance, and the importance of being honest with yourself and those around you. It will resonate with successful women, especially those who are the female breadwinners, in all areas of life.”
