Kate White

If you keep waiting for the perfect moment, you’ll miss your moment.

There’s no better time than now to tap into your inner fearlessness and ask for the job, the opportunity, and the money that you’ve been dreaming about. Or, if you’re feeling restless, begin to recharge and reimagine your career.

Holding back until you feel “100 percent ready” isn’t a strategy. It’s an excuse.

Women sometimes convince themselves they’re not ready for the next exciting step when that isn’t the case at all. The best metric for readiness isn’t that little voice in your head insisting you don’t have what it takes

I’m Kate White, former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and a New York Times bestselling author. Through my books, blogs, and speeches, I love to show women the strategies that will help them boost confidence, think bigger, and fire up their careers by harnessing the powerful career combo of grit + gutsiness.  

The Gutsy Girl Handbook

Kate’s new bestseller, The Gutsy Girl Handbook: Your Manifesto for Success.

Need strategies on everything from asking for the salary and title you want to killing it at meetings to getting unstuck from a career rut? My new bestseller offers you tons of gutsy strategies. Read the first chapter.
