Ann Shoket

foreword by Michelle Phan

Millennial women are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world-for everyone. Forever. As former editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine and now the voice behind the popular Badass Babes community, there is no one who knows the evolving values and tastes of young women more than Ann Shoket. She's been a cheerleader for millennial women for more than 15 years, and now she's here to guide them toward their Big Life-a delicious cocktail of passion, career, respect, money, and fulfilling relationships.

The Big Life is packed with actionable guidance combined with personal stories from well-known, uber-successful millennials, plus intimate conversations with a cast of compelling young women and Shoket's own stories from her quest for The Big Life. Readers will learn to tackle all of the issues on heavy rotation in their minds such as:
· How to get respect from a boss who thinks you're lazy, entitled, and self-obsessed
· Why you should forget the drag of networking
· Why you need a "side hustle"
· How to find the guy who honors your ambition

Written in Shoket's friendly and authoritative style, The Big Life will help young women recognize their power, learn how to tap into their passion, and create their own version of The Big Life.

ANN SHOKET has been a key architect in shaping the national conversation for millennial women. As editor-in-chief of Seventeen from 2007 to 2014, she repositioned the iconic fashion and beauty brand as the most relevant voice for its 13 million readers. Forbes named her one of the "Most Powerful Fashion Magazine Editors". Shoket has appeared on Good Morning America, Today, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, CNN, and more. She was also a guest judge for four seasons on America's Next Top Model .
