Impactful

I met Maggie last month at an EA event hosted by Jeremy Burrows, where she spoke about her experience as an EA. Thanks when I found out about her book!

I have many great nuggets to use I my everyday life as an EA. A mission statement for myself!? Ok! Done added it to my LinkedIn page!

Thanks Maggie!

I’m very impressed

Okay, I’m going to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this book. These sorts of stories can go a few ways: good, bad, & ugly. However, I sincerely enjoyed it. I think it’s an interesting story with some good insight and great advice/tips. I will be recommending it to my fellow EA’s. Thank you, Maggie.

This is a great read

I highly recommend this book to all administrative professionals and those who are not in the profession. Maggie has a inspirational and honest story that we can all learn from.

Sounded like a computer generated voice

I had a very hard time listening to this book due to the reader's voice. This sounded as if they either sped up or slowed down her voice and it ended up sounding like a computer. It was extremely annoying. I found the story very repetitive and not a lot of great concrete tips as to how to be a successful EA.

The Elevated EA

Thanks for the book, Maggie. It was exactly what I was looking for in the changeover from being a level b exec assistant to being a level c EA to a CEO, and it assisted me with the belief in myself that I could do it. I liked that Maggie wrote it from her own perspective and shared her personal story, while weaving encouraging thought process changes into the book as a learning, etc. I also like that she calls out the attitude to the administration field because there is a perception that we are ‘only admin’ and the reality is, take away that admin function and the organisation experiences chaos and adds responsibilities to those leaders that should be devoting all their time to strategy and successful projects, not having to waste precious hours of their day doing admin tasks. I enjoyed this book a lot more than another EA one I am reading currently which is dry and flavourless, and seems to forget it was written for EAs. Maggie keeps the EA role at the very core of this book. If you are thinking of the leap in an EA role to the next level, this book will give you great encouragement.
