Little Black Book by Otegha Uwagba // Bookish


Otegha Uwagba is my new hero! Little Black Book: A Toolkit for Working Women is a lovely little guide to the creative working world and has brought me so much motivation and joy! First, I want to chat a tiny bit about the author of this fantastic little book because she is such a great woman! Uwagba is the founder of Women Who, a community of working women who support each other and raise each other up. She runs a podcast, In Good Company, in which she talks to different women who have worked super hard to get to where they are and it is full of such great advice and intelligent interviews!

Little Black Book is such a small and well-structured guide to the working world, making it extremely easy and enjoyable to read! It carries no-nonsense in its pages and lends so much advice which I personally have found super helpful for blogging! Every blogger should read this book at some point!

Perhaps my favourite thing about this book is the back pages. Uwagba has listed recommendations for business tools, related books and sites, and places around the world to work and visit! This is super useful for someone who loves to read personal development books but struggles to find enough to satisfy her reading appetite. I now have a fresh set of recommendations to search through!


Not only is Otegha Uwagba's writing so impeccable, she has included an entire chapter of quotations from others, giving you advice from all areas of the creative workforce and also helping you to find some more hardworking people to look up to!

I cannot recommend this book enough! It's super affordable and such a quick and easy, yet inspiring and motivating read! This book has got me so hyped for the new year as I feel so motivated to get creative, progress my degree and career, and work harder on my blog!

You can buy Little Black Book from Amazon for £4 and you can find the author on Twitter @OteghaUwagba
