Drawing on deeply revealing conversations with powerful and dynamic women, input from researchers and relationship experts, and her own wealth of experience, Mika helps women pinpoint their individual definition of success. She advises her listeners to define the "professional value" that encompasses their worth in the workplace, and the "inner value" made up of their core beliefs and goals.
Women can stop feeling overwhelmed, overscheduled, frantic, and forever guilty - but only if they choose their objectives confidently and unapologetically, and focus their efforts accordingly. Mika encourages women to stop seeking the unobtainable "work-life balance", and instead pursue a life of honesty and authenticity, where career and home life combine rather than collide.

A compelling and contemplative listen ...
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
As a professional mid-career woman I can relate to much of the experience and advice shared in this book and I know many of my friends would too.
What other book might you compare Grow Your Value to and why?
I have not read books in this (personal development) genre for many years so I have no immediate comparison except to say that it has brought me a better appreciation of the author's on-air persona (I am a fan, but have never read any of her books till now) and I will chuckle every time her colleagues quip about her off-days as 'holidays to the south of France'.
Have you listened to any of Andrea Gallo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I am unfamiliar with Ms. Gallo but thoroughly enjoyed her smooth, well paced and mellow read.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My extreme reaction had to do with my current work experiences where the themes of gender bias and sexism in management culture feature strongly, and where my discontent with not being permitted to fully contribute and achieve have spurred my drive to move on to a more fulfilling point in my journey, which has already included junior and senior leadership positions and entrepreneurship. This read has primed me for the next step.
Any additional comments?
I highly recommend this book to any woman driven to achieve her full personal and work potential.
