Superhubs
"$UPERHUBS is a rare, behind-the-scenes look at how the world's most powerful titans, the "superhubs" pull the levers of our global financial system. Combining insider's knowledge with principles of network science, Sandra Navidi offers a startling new perspective on how superhubs build their powerful networks and how their decisions impact all our lives. $UPERHUBS reveals what happens at the exclusive, invitation-only platforms - The World Economic Forum in Davos, the meetings of the International Monetary Fund, think-tank gatherings and exclusive galas.

Boss bitch : a simple 12-step plan to take charge of your career / Lapin, Nicole

"New York Times bestselling author Nicole Lapin is back with a sassy and actionable guide empowering women to be the boss of their lives and their careers. You don't need dozens or hundreds of employees to be a boss, says financial expert and serial entrepreneur Nicole Lapin. Hell, you don't even need one. You just need to find your inner Boss Bitch -- your most confident, savvy, ambitious self -- and own it. A Boss Bitch is the she-ro of her own story. She is someone who takes charge of her future and embraces being a "boss" in all aspects of the word: whether as the boss of her own life, family and career, the literal boss at work, or, as the boss of her own company. Whichever she chooses (or all three), a Boss Bitch is someone who gets out there and makes her success happen -- and so can you. Lapin draws on raw and often hilariously real stories from her own career -- the good, the bad, and the ugly -- to show what it means to be a "boss" in twelve easy steps. In her refreshingly accessible and relatable style, she first shows how to embrace the "boss of you" mentality by seizing the power that comes from believing in yourself and expanding your skillset. Then she offers candid no-nonsense advice for how to kill it at as the "boss at work" whether you have a high-up role or not. And finally, for those who want to take the plunge as an entrepreneur, she lays out the nuts and bolts of how to be the "boss of your own business" from raising money and getting it off the ground to hiring a kickass staff and dealing office drama to turning a profit. Being a badass in your career is something that should be worn as a badge of honor, says Lapin. Here, she inspires us to rise to the occasion and celebrate our successes -- and then keep killing it like the Boss Bitches we are!"--

CEO of everything : flying solo and soaring / Ryce, Victoria

We live in a world of growing singleness. While lots of attention is being paid to senior singles, less has been given to younger women and men who find themselves suddenly single - through separation or divorce or through the death of a partner - or to those who come to the realization that perhaps partnership isn't in the cards and they need to start planning for themselves. Single women make up more than half the population of Canadian women. And they're facing financial and life challenges for which they're unprepared. CEO of Everything maps out the territory that singles find themselves in and guides readers through topics that form the new land of singleness. Jobs once shared by two now fall on the shoulders of one. And as if life isn't busy enough, the state of singleness means you get to do it all, all day and every day. This book will help readers decide what's urgent, what's important and what they can afford to just let go unattended.
