AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE NEWS

ENTERTAINMENT

The Skanner News

The laws of the new game changersWe can't all earn MBAs and law doctorates, or work with actor Hill Harper –but we can learn from someone who's been there and done that.  In The Laws of the New Game Changers, Raye Mitchell shares what she's learned in her 30-year career in business, law and the entertainment industry. 

Her advice will help anyone launching a career, but is especially geared to helping women and girls compete and become global leaders. Unlike Sheryl Sandberg, Mitchell won't tell you to join the circle and  "lean in."  Instead she tells us how and why we should break some rules, overcome our fears and become the front runners and game changers we were meant to be.

 "Veteran innovators and game changers have their own internal playbooks and score cards," Raye says.  "They have in their minds their own "little black book"' of notes, tips, and secret success habits that are proven winners.

"Now is your chance to shake up the status quo, disrupt the ordinary, and move forward. Go ahead, have fun and experiment. Innovate. We dare you."
