This is a title I never expected to add to my resume:
'Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author'. Below is the story of how it happened.
In April 2020, I signed up for a bunch of LinkedIn courses with the goal to gather LinkedIn insights from the world leading experts to create the most relevant and actionable LinkedIn course for professional women: LinkedIn BREAK-IN
One of the online courses I bought was from Josh Steimle, renown marketer, entrepreneur and author. His approach totally resonated with me and I implemented a lot of his tips on my own LinkedIn profile.
One year later, I hired Josh to help me boost my LinkedIn coaching business. In the process, he learnt more about my own approach and ended up inviting me to be a co-author on his upcoming book 60 Days to LinkedIn Mastery.
I was thrilled! This was completely unexpected and being invited to collaborate on the book was already a big achievement.
The book launched on October 11, 2021. One week later, it became a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller with more than 7000 copies sold and counting.

Few years ago, I was working as a Chief Marketing Officer of a tech startup. The workload was crazy and the environment toxic. But I told myself it was OK because I finally had a job with a title and salary I felt I deserved.
But then, after a few months, I encountered a * slight * problem. I got laid off. It was the first time I lost my job and I felt like a giant failure.
The thought of interviewing again was crushing me since I had never managed to be seen for my skills, gifts and potential. Each interview always broke my self-confidence a little bit more.
A lot has changed since then. I've discovered a way to quickly get high quality job offers using LinkedIn. I now help professional women implement my system to use LinkedIn to get ahead in their career.
I’ve seen the impact my program has on my students’ lives and career… It's up to you to be next!
