Fall 2019 Book Club Meeting - Extreme You

November 14, 2019

What we’re reading this fall… Extreme You by Sarah Robb O’Hagan.

In every challenging situation, personal or professional, individuals face the pressure to conform to the accepted norms. But doing so comes with heavy costs: passions are stifled, talents are ignored, and opportunities are squelched. The other, far bolder, choice is to embrace what Sarah calls Extreme YOU: to confidently bring all that is distinctive and relevant about yourself to everything you do. You’ll achieve more if you’re willing to step up—and out—of line.

Extreme You. Step up. Stand out. Kick ass. Repeat. book cover

Don’t miss out on this book club session! WISE NYC Metro book club meetings are not your average book club. There will be a facilitated review of the book, a few surprises and giveaways and wine…of course there will be wine!

Registration closes 11/12/19 at 5PM or when we reach capacity. Book Club meeting location will be emailed to all registered members on 11/12/19. This is a members-only activity. Be sure your membership is current prior to registering.
