In The Press

“In Power Your Happy, Sugar documents how she built POPSUGAR from the ground up and imparts important real-life career advice for anyone interested in starting their own company or learning on how to master that work-life balance.”

Publishers Weekly

“Sugar presents tactics for networking and crafting a resume or cover letter, and describes her experience creating and leading a successful team. Her commentary on 'having it all' is astute, noting that ‘all’ is subjective' and having a support system is vital.”
