“Balance is the key to success,” as the old mantra goes – that is, if balance is defined by juggling work, money, love, friends, and a hefty to-do list, all while walking on the tight rope called life.
We know it’s hard to find balance, but maybe it’s time to stop looking for that elusive key and embrace the mess instead. Ann Shoket, who you might recognize as Seventeen’s editor-in-chief for the better part of a decade, has mastered the art of embracing the mess to achieve “THE BIG LIFE,” and she’s written a book on how you can, too. And guess what? We’ve teamed up with Rodale to give 50 winners a signed copy of her new book!
To put it quite simply, Ann is a Badass Babe. She leads a community of empowered, young women dealing with complex issues in today’s fast-paced world, and she knows how to help you get what you want. As Ann describes it, “you want The Big Life – that delicious cocktail of passion, career, work, ambition, respect, money and a monumental relationship. And you want it on your terms.”
From discussing the valuable takeaways of characters like Carrie Bradshaw and Andy Sachs, such as in this excerpt, to giving you the lowdown on juicy, TMI topics you can’t even ask your friends, this book is the guide you’ve been searching for.
The winner of the giveaway will be announced in our newsletter, so stay tuned! If you haven’t already signed up, you can subscribe here to keep up to date with all things collegiette.
