When Mireille Guiliano became a senior executive and spokesperson for Veuve Clicquot, she took the champagne to the top of the luxury market, using her distinctive French woman’s philosophy and style. Now she uses those same talents and savoir faire to help readers pop their own corks and get the most out of life.

With lively lessons, stories, and helpful hints, Mireille teaches every reader how to identify her own passions and talents, improve her communication skills, balance work and life, cope with everyday stress, turn herself into a winning brand, and so much more. From acing a job interview or performance review to hosting a simple but elegant dinner party, Mireille tells it like it is as she shares her secrets for achieving happiness and success at any stage in business and life. Stylish, witty, and wise, Mireille segues easily from the small details to the big picture, never losing sight of what is most important: feeling good, facing challenges, getting ahead, and maximizing pleasure at every opportunity.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Guiliano is a cross between mom and corporate coach—with, as always, a particularly French touch.” Wall Street Journal
“Offers…wise advice about suceeding at the workplace without becoming a cubicle zombie…[Guiliano’s] approach is sensible, but with foreign flair…Delectably different from the usual gung-ho American career guide.” USA Today
“[Guiliano] wants to help women achieve more than business success: She wants to help them be happy and live a good life…[She] offers some nuggets of hard-nosed counsel.” Washington Post
“Like being mentored by an old-fashioned but…hip aunt who also knows business.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Guiliano offers yet another charming dose of no-nonsense advice in this straightforward guide to living a successful and fulfilling professional life.”   Publishers Weekly
“[A] delightful montage of Guiliano’s international perspective and appealing personal style. Her message will help women everywhere get in sync with their deepest feminine selves while succeeding in executive positions…She’s the international mentor every woman wishes she had—full of wisdom, totally confident in herself, and clearly in control of what she wants listeners to learn. A perfect gift for any woman who needs practical suggestions and wants to deepen the expression of her unique personal style at work. Magnifique!” AudioFile
“Numerous business books purport to help women better balance life and work, but Guiliano’s refreshing guide actually describes how it can be done—and with style.” Library Journal
