Book Review - Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill it in your Career. Rock Social Media. by Aliza Licht

I just finished reading "Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill it in Your Career. Rock Social Media." by Aliza Licht. I've been discussing this book with my student reading group and I can't wait to hear what they thought of the end! It's a great book for people just starting their careers as well as those of us who need a little spark to reignite our passions.

Aliza Licht is best known for being a social media genius. Long before brands were all over social media, Aliza started @DKNY PR GIRL on Twitter. She created this nameless, faceless personality for Donna Karan New York - no one knew the individual behind the Twitter account but we also couldn't get enough of her witty and conversational tone. Since then, Aliza Licht has developed a reputation for giving great career advice and serving as a mentor to many new fashion industry hopefuls.

Some of my favorite advice from Leave Your Mark:

“If change doesn't hurt a little, it's not change. You have to go beyond where you're comfortable, or you're not progressing.” 
― Aliza Licht, Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It in Your Career. Rock Social Media.
“It's funny; sometimes you learn the most from watching people display their worst.” 
― Aliza Licht, Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It in Your Career. Rock Social Media.
“Mentors shape who we are. They guide us and let us learn from their successes and their failures. They’re the ultimate big sister in our professional lives. They give you room to grow and help you realize who you are and what you’re capable of doing. They give you that needed nudge, that sign of encouragement. They challenge you to be your best, and if they’re good, they’re also tough on you. Because mentors aren’t there to flatter you; they’re there to help you.”
