Yes, men wrote the rules of the workplace-but now Amy Henry, the last woman standing on The Apprentice, shows young business women how to make those rules work for them! In WHAT IT TAKES, Amy Henry, a formidable business woman and national star from The Apprentice, shares her experiences, skills, and in-your-face advice for moving up in today's workplace.

Throughout her impressive ten-year business career, mostly in male-dominated industries, Amy has learned how women can succeed by using the strategies men use every day, and by thinking of femininity as an asset, not a liability.

WHAT IT TAKES is packed with real-life examples and practical advice and strategies, including:

o Don't cry in the boardroom-manage your emotions
o Yes, there is an Old Boys network-join it on your terms
o Speak up-confidence isn't arrogance
o Use charm-your personality is an asset
o Brag-broadcast your accomplishments
o Stop apologizing-men don't do it, you shouldn't either
o Money-it's not what you need, it's what you're worth
o Mixing business with pleasure-the right way and the wrong way

Hip, honest and controversial, WHAT IT TAKES is the ultimate guide to the reality of today's business world-and Amy Henry is the new model for today's young business women.
