Posted by Literary Titan
Now What? Managing a Sudden Transition In Your Career is a book that will always be relevant to any ambitious professional. The information shared by the author, tips on how to grow your career and become the best in the team, and general life advice shared by the author make this book a gem. Annella Metoyer writes from experience. The guidance she gives is solid and objective. I enjoyed reading this book because the author addresses different professional groups and even shares tips on how to navigate the career world. From her book, I believe that a day spent with Annella Metoyer would help one make the right career choices.
While I expected career advice, I was pleasantly surprised to also find a discussion about technology and its impacts. As an individual whose career was directly affected by the changes that technology has brought, Annella had prudent words for those that are just starting out. One way of staying relevant is going the extra mile. The author talks about working hard, working smart and grabbing opportunities whenever they present themselves. The step by step approach shared by the author when getting into a career, making connections and knowing when to leave if possible will be helpful to many students as well as corporate employees.
Apart from her professional life, Annella also touched on her personal life. I enjoyed reading about the challenges she faced and how she handled every issue. This book is an enlightening book with expert advice from an experienced professional. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a career coach or mentor in the professional world.
With practical and actionable advice that you can put to use right away Now What? is a critical book that will ensure your success if you were recently let go from a job you thought was secure. This should be your first step to getting back on track.

Dare to Be the Change tells the story of your life and how you overcame adversities to be the change you wanted to see in the world. Why was this an important book for you to write?
It was important for me to write this book to give the readers a glimpse into some of the adversities that women and people of color face in corporate America. More importantly, how to embrace adversity and make it your advantage by becoming the voice for others.
You grew up in a small town in Louisiana, in a time where racism was prevalent in the community. How has your perception changed of that time and place now that you’re an adult?
I do not feel my perception has changed now that I am an adult. However, as an adult, I do understand the WHY behind why some things happened.
I found this book to be inspirational and motivate me to help others seek change. What do you hope readers take away from your book?
Since the book published, I have received countless emails, phone calls, text messages from all cultures. The book is doing exactly what I hoped it would do. First, giving individuals a platform to talk to each other about a sensitive subject versus talking at each other. Secondly, it’s an opportunity for each person to tell their own story. And finally, its reenergized individuals to stand up and be the voice in the room.
What is the next book that you are writing and when will it be available?
My next book Stronger than Fear is a children’s book scheduled to be published late summer 2018. It’s about a boy named Christopher and his dog Loki experiencing bullying by members of their species.

In Dare to be the Change, Annella Metoyer courageously shares the details of her life’s challenges, her family’s dedication to positive change as well as offers hope for readers through her struggles and accomplishments. Starting with the integration of her small town public school, she encounters a life-changing experience that sets her on a path of “being the change.”
Not only did she face the challenges when women were not the voice in the room, but she also did so as a person of color. From coworkers to disgruntled customers’ discrimination, she lived the evolution of attitudes. With each adversity, she became more determined to take the challenge and turn it into an advantage.
Annella Metoyer was blessed to experience many firsts. She was the first person of color employed by a local bank and ultimately became the City President for a large corporate bank. Her journey later took an unexpected turn when she transitioned from employee to entrepreneur.
Dare to be the Change will resonate with anyone that has ever faced adversities. As you read the story, you will rejoice in the strength that Annella finds within to help others and to make this world a better place.
