You Deserve Your Success! Joyce Roché rose from humble circumstances to earn an Ivy League MBA and become the first female African-American vice president of Avon, president of a leading hair care company, and CEO of the national nonprofit Girls Inc. But despite these accomplishments, she felt like a fraud. She worked more and more, had less and less of a personal life, and was never able to enjoy her success. In this deeply personal memoir, Roché shares her lifelong struggle with what she now recognizes as “the impostor syndrome,” a condition that plagues successful people in all walks of life. Based on her own experiences and those of top executives from organizations such as Eileen Fisher, Citigroup, BET, Pepsi, and Tupperware, she offers practical advice and valuable coping strategies that can help you embrace your own worth and live a life of joy, zest, and fulfillment. “The impostor syndrome is all too common among highly successful people—and until now a closely guarded secret! Joyce Roché’s insights will make success at each stage of our life and career a more joyful experience for those of us—such as me—who have felt this insecurity.” —Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO, Tupperware Brands Corporation “Whether you are just starting your career or are nearing its pinnacle, this book will do more than help you navigate effectively; it will help you enjoy the journey.” —Earl “Butch” Graves Jr., President and CEO, Black Enterprise “This is a book that is so needed by women—especially younger women. [It] offers hope, guidance, and gentle mentorship to all of us who have ever confronted the fear of not measuring up.” —Rosina L. Racioppi, President and CEO, Women Unlimited, Inc. “Silence and isolation are the hallmarks of the impostor syndrome. Joyce’s courage in speaking out will be tremendously helpful to all those who have ever experienced these feelings by letting them know that they are not alone.” —Pauline Rose Clance, PhD, psychotherapist who, with Suzanne Imes, PhD, first identified the impostor syndrome

Joyce Roch� earned an Ivy League MBA and rose quickly to become the first African-American vice president of Avon, where she led global marketing. She later became president of a leading cosmetics company and CEO of Girls Inc. and now serves on several Fortune 500 boards. Yet through it all she felt like an impostor - the phrase "the empress has no clothes" kept running through her head. As a result she worked 20-hour days, kept quiet in meetings to avoid revealing her supposed shortcomings, and worst of all, never really enjoyed her success. Using her own life story - from her beginnings in rural Louisiana through her rise up the corporate ranks and her transition to the nonprofit sector - Roch� exposes the roots of the Impostor Syndrome, its toll on young and emerging professionals, and provides invaluable advice for overcoming feelings of inadequacy. She explores panic points, coping strategies, and just plain common career sense. Each chapter features an interview with aleading executive like Chairman and CEO of BET Holdings Debra Lee, WNBA Founding President Val Ackerman, Starbucks Senior Vice President Mary Wagner, Eileen Fisher, and many more, who share their own imposter syndrome stories. Reading this book is like having the career mentor we all want but can never find. Roch� even provides the path to finding joy and meaning at work, which is the proper goal of any true career.

“The New Machiavelli” is a novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1911. The plot was well-known to have been based on Wells' affair with Amber Reeves and a satire of Beatrice and Sidney web; and, as such, was constituted a veritable literary scandal at the time. An interesting and entertaining story of life and loves, “The New Machiavelli” will not disappoint fans of Wells work and deserves a place on every bookshelf. Contents include: “The Making Of A Man”, “Concerning A Book That Was Never Written”, “Bromstead And My Father”, “Margaret In London”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
