Critic Reviews

"Make it Happen’ is the modern bible for all things career-related for the modern professional. Everyone who wants to progress in their career and do it in a way that maintains relationships and respect with everyone around them should follow this book word for word. It’s the book I wish I had early in my career.” (Brian Wong, CEO, Kiip®; The Cheat Code)

“The ‘unwritten’ rules of building a career and navigating organizational politics can make or break young talent, and it’s a balancing act to learn how to thrive in a multi-generational workplace. This is a must-read for anyone, at any stage in the career journey, who wants to maximize their opportunities for growth and success.” (Jennifer Brown, President & CEO; Jennifer Brown Consulting)

“Inside this book, D.A. Abrams shares his time-tested career development, networking, and navigational ‘secrets’ that he has passed down to his mentees and interns. It takes most of us a career lifetime to learn these strategies, and now we have it in the form of this handy volume. What a gift!” (Jane Hyun, CEO, Hyun & Assoc. Leadership Consulting; Flex; Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians)
