Little Black Book – Otegha Uwagba

A super short guide to how to successfully carve out a career in the creative industries. It is full of very useful advice, especially relevant to freelancers, and people who work in an area where people will often want to try and get you to work for free.

It definitely took me longer than 32 minutes to read this. What is that time calculator on?

When I got this book, I didn’t really think about how focussed it would be on creative jobs. I realise this is probably very idiotic of me, because every description of it mentions it being an ‘essential handbook for creative working women’.

Also, it is probably more useful for younger people. I am not young, and I am not in a creative job. So this book isn’t really for me, but I enjoyed the easy style of the writing, and it is full of confidence building advice.

This book is really great for any young woman, aiming for a creative career. I still got quite a bit out of it, but yeh…. comfy, old woman, never going to change jobs ever because mine is ace. Not written for me, clearly! I would buy it for any young women I know though.
