ESSENCE Senior Editor and international dating & career coach Charreah K. Jackson entered 2008 with the plan to gain 200 lbs every two weeks. That's right, she wanted a man by her side for a date at least twice a month. After making her way to New York with a roommate from Craigslist and a coveted magazine job, she knew Sex and the City reruns would not create her love life goals but a strategy would. Her effort worked and a year of active dating landed her in a relationship with a fellow creative. She has spent the last 10 years helping millions of women in their love life as a relationships editor and coach and shares all her insight and research in this conversational book. From organising surprise proposals at Walt Disney World and walking the streets of NY asking women when was their last orgasm to heading to Amsterdam as a speaker and judge for the Europe Dating Awards, to interviewing powerful women like Kerry Washington and Sarah Jessica Parker, Charreah has been at the front lines of dating with a keen eye for what's working for professional women to find and keep great love.
Weaving through the complicated world of dating and career, Charreah illustrates how to get what you want in both work and in love with insight from real women including many familiar names. Both relatable and entertaining, each page carries new insight onto an old game. How does changing your name after marriage impact your check and what do hiring managers think when they spot an engagement ring? Packed with tips, tricks, strategies, and testimonies from women across America, she shows you how to become a Boss Bride - and how to stay one long after you get the corner office and walk down the aisle.
