The Legend of Zelda video game series, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, has relied on a simple formula to continue to capture the imagination of new generations of gamers. The thrill of the game would be lost if gamers knew the solution to every puzzle, or the location of every treasure and hazard. But life is not just a thrilling game, and people can build career successes if they know how to navigate the corporate environment to avoid the pitfalls that cost advancement. In “Empower Yourself for an Amazing Career” (published by Balboa Press), Blanca De La Rosa offers valuable information and encouragement for people who want to progress their careers.
De La Rosa’s advice comes from her illustrious career with 30 years of experience climbing the corporate ladder in a Fortune 5 company. Now a business development manager, she often represents her company as lead presenter at the Regional and National Scholarship Awards hosted by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. In addition, she represents her company as host, keynote speaker and panelist of various events with organizations supported by the company's charity foundation. After all her time in the industry, she says her most rewarding role is serving as mentor to the young women in her company – guiding them through the corporate maze.
Now she is proud to pass on some of the lessons she has learned to all readers. “Empower Yourself for an Amazing Career” contains a wealth of information about personal career mistakes and is invaluable to anyone that dreams of building a successful career. De La Rosa details stories of career mistakes that can cost promotions and incorporates personal stories and strategies for overcoming adversity in the workplace.
De La Rosa has taken a holistic approach to climbing the corporate ladder. “The overarching message of this book is to inspire and motivate the reader to forge ahead no matter what assails,” she says. “Trusting your intuition, your gut feeling.”
About the Author
Blanca De La Rosa, the daughter of immigrants from the Dominican Republic, grew up in the projects of the upper west side of Manhattan in New York, during the time before the Hispanic population developed the supportive Latino community which exists today. Although she struggled without support in her cultural and linguistic transition – public schools still hadn’t developed English as a second language programs – De La Rosa was able to graduate from Pace University with a bachelor’s degree in international business management and to establish a successful 30-year career rising through the ranks of a Fortune 5 corporation.
