Boss Bitch by Nicole Lapin | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Boss Bitch: A Simple 12-Step Plan for Taking Charge of Your Life, Your Career, and Your Business by Nicole Lapin?

Boss Bitch by Nicole Lapin is the sort of non-fiction personal development book that appeals to me at my very core. I’ve been in supervisory positions on and off since college. As it happens, many jobs don’t give training on how to be a supervisor. It’s just — oh you’re competent, let’s promote you. So, in order to better develop in my career, I like to seek out information on how to be a better leader. Boss Bitch is my kind of book because it’s aimed at women. There’s profanity. It’s very no nonsense. So, now that I have a free three month trial to Scribd, I decided this would be my first audiobook on there. Also — it helps me to whittle down that Netgalley queue and improve my ratio.

What’s It All About?

So, Lapin’s audiobook is basically what the subtitle says. It is about a twelve step plan for you to take charge of your life, your career, and your business. She’s got some really great information about the different types of business licenses. She talks about how if you run your business out of your home, you can deduct some things on taxes. We learn the difference between boss bitches and bad bitches.

AND probably this one thing that appealed to me the most — talking about branding. She talks about how you can’t be all things to all people. The more you try to broaden, the more you dilute your brand and become wishy-washy which doesn’t attract people. Instead, you want to focus on the type of person you’d like to attract to your brand and get sort of specific. I felt like that was useful and something I am going to incorporate into Books & Wine. We’ll see, though.

How Did I Like Boss Bitch?

So, there’s a lot that I took away from Boss Bitch. I loved that I actually learned something from this book. However, there were a lot of the twelve steps that didn’t really appeal to me. Or parts where my eyes sort of glazed. Those parts being about incorporating, hiring for your own business. I would suggesting skipping over those sections if you are not about to own your own business. Beyond that, there’s a TON of actionable information.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook is narrated by Lapin herself. She’s a decent narrator. Her voice is a little high, but I think that listening to this at faster than 1x speed accounts for that. Overall, I liked hearing this via audio. It felt like my driving time was filled with me actually learning something. It is a little long, 13 hours. I mean, for a personal development book, that is long. If you want to move up in your career and be a Boss Bitch, you should absolutely give Nicole Lapin’s book a listen.
