How do you swap a soul-crushing job for one that sustains you?
Viv talks to the writer, Carrie Sun, whose new memoir, Private Equity, is about to be released in US and UK. The story draws on Carrie’s own experience of being headhunted to be Executive Assistant to a billionaire. The competitive role was glamourous but 24/7, unrelenting and led to burnout in the face of a pitiless boss.
Carrie critiques capitalism and systems of misogyny, giving extraordinary insight into extreme hustle culture within a closed world.
Viv and Carrie unpick these complex threads and counsel keeping a sense of perspective and plotting a way out when you need to escape.
Viv’s new book, Happy High Status: How to Be Effortlessly Confident, is out now.
