Millennial women are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world—for everyone. Forever.
You want The Big Life—that delicious cocktail of passion, career, work, ambition, respect, money, and a monumental relationship. And you want it on your own terms. 
Ann Shoket knows the evolving values of young women more than anyone. As the trailblazing editor-in-chief of Seventeen for the better part of a decade, Shoket led provocative conversations that helped young women find their confidence and live their dreams. Now she’s continuing the conversation with The Big Life
You’ll learn to tackle all of the issues on heavy rotation in your mind such as:

  • How to craft a career that’s also a passion.
  • How to get respect from a boss who thinks you’re a lazy, entitled, and self-obsessed millennial 
  • Why you need a “squad” of people who support you as you build your Big Life
  • How a side hustle will make you smarter, hotter, and more in control of your destiny. 
  • Why work/life balance is a sham and you need to embrace the mess.
  • How to find a partner whose eyes light up when you talk about your ambition.

The Big Life will help you recognize your power, tap into your ambition, and create your own version of The Big Life.
