The Working Woman’s Handbook is a detailed, practical guide that covers the spectrum of establishing and growing a self-made career: from choosing a path and finding clarity, to obtaining clients and setting up a workspace. Author Phoebe Lovatt offers tips for negotiating and setting rates, improving creative skills, and networking. Finally, she coaches readers on how to look after themselves through nutrition, exercise, and finding a balance between work and play. Along the way, she includes words of wisdom from other successful women such as Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, musician Neneh Cherry, and WAH Nails founder Sharmadean Reid; worksheets and goal-setting outlines; and specific, helpful “how-to” sections. This feisty, philosophical, and feminist-leaning book will help young women find happiness and professional fulfillment by following their dreams—and Phoebe’s hard-won advice.

A man’s shoes are the most important items in his wardrobe. However, a pair of custom-made welted shoes goes beyond mere items of apparel. They are the creation of a master craftsman, expressing the social standing of the wearer while simultaneously providing the delicate structure of the feet with optimum protection from the stress and strain of everyday life.
