The inspiring book Evolve: The Lifetime Power of Actions on Your Career Path by Ydalmis Carrasco is a book that strives to encourage women who want to make an imprint on the world professionally. This informative book focuses on achieving goals in the entrepreneurial and corporate world. It begins with a bold promise as Ydalmis Carrasco tells the reader her mission is about helping them excel and that their success will occur quickly. The author shares anecdotes with the reader throughout the book about how she stayed motivated and progressed in her professional life despite various setbacks and circumstances which would have caused many to be mediocre.
This stirring book is about more than inspiration; the author is extremely clear about what it takes to be successful and includes sections about practice and having a routine that suits the reader. Carrasco also contains practical information to help the reader achieve their goals. The reader is provided with a key example of a LinkedIn profile. The profile includes Ydalmis’s work experience and is used as an example of when one might approach a potential employer. The author also shares resources with the reader, including a useful website and the names of helpful apps. I wanted the book to keep going as it is filled with so many pieces of wisdom I could just keep soaking up all the author was offering readers. It’s definitely a book I would read again in the near future. In my opinion, the author created the perfect balance between inspiring the reader and giving practical advice.
Even though this is a short book, it contains vital information. It doesn’t include the unnecessary information that books from the same genre normally would, and the book is written in a conversational way which makes it an easy read. I would recommend Evolve: The Lifetime Power of Actions on Your Career Path to any woman who wants to further their career.
