About the book:
"In this book, Nicole reveals her incredible journey and how she got where she is today." -Gabrielle Union (from the foreword)
Agent You shares Nicole’s key strategies for creating a plan and executing it, even in the face of self-doubt and external obstacles. Each chapter includes exercises to help you implement the strategies presented, so you can start working toward your goals today. After reading Agent You, you’ll learn how to:
- Discover and stay focused on your purpose.
- Develop your personal brand and advocate for yourself.
- Prepare for big opportunities.
- Land your dream job.
- Manage your workload and still prioritize self-care.
“Imagine if you had an agent for your own life…someone guiding you to determine what your purpose is, someone advocating for you in rooms you have not even stepped into, someone that was pushing you to your greatest potential…now, imagine that that agent is you,” says Lynn. “I believe that everyone can own their success story, no matter life’s challenges,” adds Lynn. “And, I believe that you are your best agent.”
Thriving in a male-dominated profession, Lynn tells about her extraordinary successes that were earned through a combination of hard work, preparation, self-advocacy, tenacity, and faith.
