Girl on Top Does Dallas

Isn’t LOVE an amazing feeling? Your heart does somersaults. You’re thrilled and giddy and have so much energy. You look phenomenal (glow, even!), and your life just seems to sparkle.

How did you get there? Did it happen out of the blue, or did you spend a little time preparing yourself for this feeling? Did you read up a little on the subject (The Rules, Men are From Mars…, your astrology)? Get advice from friends? Did you look in the mirror to see how your butt looked in those jeans before you set out on that fateful day? Did you send a message to the universe?

And wouldn’t it be fantastic if all that delicious goodness could spill over into other areas of your life?

Like, say…work??

Girl on Top: Your Guide to Turning Dating Rules into Career Success

In Girl on Top, author and career expert Nicole Williams takes the dating rules we’ve all heard, read about, and probably put into action at some point, such as “Play Hard to Get”, “Don’t Bash Your Ex”, and “Don’t Waste the Pretty” (or in my case, try, try again!), and reveals how they can be applied to career strategies as well.

I love the idea of taking these straight-forward strategies and applying them to the business world. Why not? You don’t lay it all on the table on the first date, do you? If you don’t let your boyfriend/girlfriend walk all over you, why should you let your boss?

In addition to relationship-type advice, Nicole has fashion guidelines as well (because after all, looking good isn’t really optional, is it?). For this book tour, Nicole has teamed up with The Limited stores.

Last night I attended a book signing event at The Limited store in the Dallas Galleria, and I had the pleasure to meet not only Nicole (who was SO absolutely charming and personable that she walked right up to ME and introduced herself), but also Linda Heasley, President and CEO of The Limited, as well as Elliot Staples, Vice President of Design at The Limited!

What a perfect setting to showcase Fall/Winter 09 fashions and trends–to an audience who is interested in establishing, building and advancing in their careers!

Nicole and Elliot tag-teamed on stage, showing the audience how to create business-savvy looks that are appropriate not only for work but can transition to happy hour (or *wink* date) with the change of an accessory or simply removing a jacket.

With a couple of quick changes, it's time to leave the office behind. There's life beyond 9-5!

What a fun night! I had a great time sipping wine and dishing with Nicole and the Limited folks. Thanks so much for the tips on getting to the top.

Time to climb!
