I am posting this as I had a conversation with a junior sysadmin earlier about this.
Figured it could come in handy for others looking for ideas on how to approach this!
Because I spent my life in magazine publishing, I know a lot of people on the book side, and they encouraged me to make it a book. But as I talked to various book publishers, they really wanted a general advice book for women. I tried to make it sharing confidences among girlfriends, big sister kind of language.
I would have loved to have written a general advice book, but a very wise book publisher, not the one who published me, but one whom I met in the process, said, "Well, Robin, there has never been a general business advice book that men have bought that was written by a woman." That's my point.
The C: drive contains a folder called Scripts where I store generic scripts that I use regularly I passed the VCAP-DCA exam a few weeks ago.
It was a tough exam, like everybody else that has gone through it said, time management is the issue.

In 1996, Robin left Time Warner to pursue her interest in the Internet, and in 1997 she joined CNET Networks as a member of the executive committee. I was brought into CNET Networks by the founders specifically to mentor a generation of young people who knew a lot about the Internet, but didn't know a lot about management. I realized that by the time she was as old as these CNET people, I probably wouldn't remember the stories to tell her.
They were so hungry for stories of workplace issues and career development that I found myself telling my stories over and over again. I started in '97, and left in 2002, when the company returned to profitability for the second time. So I began the book as a letter to my daughter, Bonnie, about being a woman in business. Most of the people that I coached at CNET were men.
