How to Turn Distrust into Determination
Jaclyn Johnson, the CEO and Founder of Create & Cultivate, released her first book, WorkParty.
Known for bootstrapping Create & Cultivate, the popular online platform and conference for millennial women in business, from startup to multimillion dollar success, Johnson’s new book offers a rallying cry for a new generation of women who are redefining the meaning of work on their own terms: WorkParty.
WorkParty offers an inside look at how Johnson grew not one, but two, successful business from the ground up. Packed with information on how to overcome setbacks, hone your elevator pitch, develop tools for negotiations and more – WorkParty shares Johnson’s story on how she turned distrust into determination, frustration into fuel, and heartache into hard work—and how readers can too. With stories from leading entrepreneurs including Christene Barberich (co-founder of Refinery29), Alli Webb, (creator of Drybar), Morgan Debaun (founder of Blavity), Jen Gotch (founder and CCO of ban.do), and Rebecca Minkoff, readers will learn from the best in the business while cultivating the passion and happiness needed to succeed.
WorkParty is launching with an accompanying podcast and nationwide tour. Season One of the WorkParty podcast will launch August 29th. Hosted by Johnson, the weekly podcast will break down the business of being a modern working woman and feature guests including Kristen Bell, Rachel Zoe, Bobbi Brown and Sara Blakely. The tour kicks off on September 20th and will stop in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Boston, Nashville, Atlanta, Miami, and Austin. Johnson will sit down with some of the most prominent women in business including Allure Editor-in-chief, Michelle Lee, Cupcakes and Cashmere founder, Emily Schuman, celebrity hairstylist, Kristin Ess, and Kendra Scott, for live podcast recordings, panels and more.
