Winging It

CEO and entrepreneur Emma Isaacs forgot to draw up her life plan, and she doesn’t have a list of five-year goals. She doesn’t believe in work/life balance – after all she has five children and heads up Business Chicks, Australia’s largest community for women.

Like Sheryl Sandberg, who told us to ‘lean in’ to find success, Emma wants to show us that you can’t plan every detail and wait for the confidence to kick in before you begin; instead, take action now, do what feels right and figure the rest out as you go along. In other words, you’ve got to learn how to ‘wing it’ rather than wait.

Drawing on her own life and the stories of the many men and women she has met and interviewed – from Sir Richard Branson to Bill Gates to ‘Girlboss’ Sophia Amoruso – Emma tells us how to:

  • TURN A DREAM INTO A JOB
  • TURN A JOB INTO A BUSINESS
  • NETWORK LIKE A CHAMPION
  • PROTECT YOUR TIME FOR THE THINGS THAT MATTER
  • GET FIRED UP NOT GROUND DOWN BY THE KIDS/CAREER JUGGLE
  • UNDERSTAND THAT SOMETIMES FAILURE IS PART OF THE BRIEF

Emma shows us that often the only thing holding us back is ourselves; that you can follow your dreams; and that there’s no reason not to start doing so right now.
