Uncover the unique qualities within YOU that will lead you to find your true purpose, a meaningful career, and show you how to live your biggest life.

I know I have a bigger purpose, but how can I find it?

Dermalogica founder Jane Wurwand shows you how to turn your unique traits and experiences -especially the ones you may think are your biggest setbacks, into the tools you need to make your dreams a reality.

This is not a memoir. This is the journey of how Jane, and how you can find yourself and purpose by harnessing the resilience and creativity within you to drive your own success.

Sharing lessons learned, from starting a business on 14,000 dollars of self-funding to growing a multi-million-dollar international brand with a cult-like following, Jane takes you through her real-world experience so you can learn:

How to look inward to find your true purpose and let it guide you to live your biggest life.
How to discover what type of work will fulfill you and infuse your life with meaning and value.
How to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges between the life you're living now and the life you know you deserve.
How to achieve great success by doing what you love.

Business leaders, professionals, entrepreneurs-you don't have to feel stuck or frustrated any longer, get ready to find your purpose and start living your biggest life. After applying the lessons in Skin in the Game, you will be able to look towards a new future, confident in the choices you are making in your life, in your career, and in your impact on the world.

Reading Skin in the Game, you discover the 'why' behind Dermalogica's business model, that the Harvard Business Review called 'brilliant', and how the brand turned a skincare product line and salon training platform into a recognized symbol of women's entrepreneurship around the world.

Review quote

'I know firsthand the impact of stress and burnout that can come with founding and growing a big life and career. Jane proves that it's possible to build success and still remember what matters - this book shows us how she does it. She and I both know that we each have everything we need already inside us to go for it!' * Estelle Swaray, Grammy winning singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and broadcaster * 'I've just sat down and read your book in one sitting --I absolutely loved it. So full of insights and inspiration, and dedication and courage just shines through on every page. It's brilliant!' * Lydia Slater, Editor-in-Chief of Harper's Bazaar UK * 'Jane Wurwand inspired me the moment I heard her incredible story. She truly started from the bottom to rise to the heights of her industry and she did it at a time when women were blocked from success at nearly every possible juncture. What Jane has shown through her work and her leadership in empowering women around the world is that possibility is everywhere if you keep your eyes open.' * Guy Raz, New York Times bestselling author and creator of the podcast How I Built This with Guy Raz * 'Despite what other books might tell you, you don't need a ten-year plan, an MBA and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank to do the thing you've always dreamed of. To live a brave and entrepreneurial life, you must just say yes to your dreams, and figure the rest out as you go. This book will show you that you have everything you need already inside you and anything else can be solved with ice cream.' * Jerry Greenfield, philanthropist, activist, humanitarian, author and co-Founder of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (for which he has no responsibility and no authority) * 'With candid humor and concrete insights, Wurwand shows you how to get to yes. Few leaders have the life story and experience that really live her motto 'you are more than enough'' * Katty Kay, TV journalist and author of The New York Times bestsellers, Womenomics, The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code for Girls. * 'Now more than ever, we need strong female role models to lead and have their voices heard. Jane is that role model to aspire to as you step into the leadership of your own life. And in true Jane form, she is even donating her book sales!' * Gail Becker, Founder and CEO of Caulipower *
