In What It Takes, Amy Henry, a formidable businesswoman 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 10-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:

Don't cry in the boardroom: manage your emotions
Yes, there is an Old Boys network: join it on your terms Speak up: confidence isn't arrogance Use charm: your personality is an asset Brag: broadcast your accomplishments Stop apologizing: men don't do it, you shouldn't either Money: it's not what you need, it's what you're worth 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 businesswomen.
