What if you had your own life coach in your back pocket, ready to help you navigate the inevitable "oy veys" that pop up in work and life?

Now you do. In her book, "Oy Vey" Isn't a Strategy: 25 Solutions for Personal and Professional Success, professional coach, speaker and writer Deborah Grayson Riegel offers practical, insightful and applicable tips and tools - along with a generous sprinkling of Jewish wisdom - to use at work and at home to help you:

  • Get to Know Yourself
  • Get Along with Others
  • Get More Done
  • Get a New Perspective


From accountability and communication skills to time management and handling stress, each chapter takes the reader from those "Oy!" moments, when they recognize how their own limiting, ineffective or self-defeating behaviors stand in the way of success, to their new "Aha!" realization when they learn what shifts in attitude and action can make all the difference.

In the middle, readers will experience the "Hmm…" that comes from learning the Jewish perspective on each topic, and, of course, the "Ha-ha" moments when Deborah uses her real life stories as a comedian, wife, mom to twins, professional coach, and a speaker to thousands of professionals in Jewish non-profit and corporate arenas to infuse each chapter with humor and levity, without glossing over the real challenges we all face.

Deborah's Oy Vey Isn't a Strategy will do for professional and personal development what Wendy Mogel's best-selling book, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee did for parenting: give readers practical, applicable and realistic solutions steeped in Jewish wisdom and real life wit.
