Broadscast – Wendy Sachs

How do smart women pivot and relaunch their careers?
Wendy Sachs was working her tail off among younger, cheaper colleagues when she heard those dreaded words. “You’re great, smart, creative… but we’re reorganizing.” While she was doing that hustle trying to stay relevant, she found herself over 40 and fired, panicked by what the future held.

I felt like I was dead woman walking, conscious to always stay positive. I tried to walk out with my head up, not be bitter.
That’s when Wendy, an Emmy award-winning network television producer, former Capitol Hill press secretary, editor-in-chief of Care.com and media relations executive launched Fearless and Free: How Smart Women Pivot–and Relaunch Their Careers. In Fearless and Free, Wendy teaches us how to become unapologetically bold and badass—the boss of our own future.
There’s no job security – we are disposable widgets. — Wendy Sachs

If I hadn’t failed so many times, I wouldn’t have written this book.
Wendy is also author of How She Really Does It: Secrets of Successful Stay-at-Work Moms, a modern working woman’s survival guide. How She Really Does It will give you hope that even if you can’t have it all, you can have at least some of it all of the time.
