You are a Badass
Jen Sincero’s now classic book focuses on getting people to open up their minds to the idea that they are capable of accomplishing what they need to accomplish. This book is like a whole life plan to get you from feeling down in the dumps into revamping your life and becoming the powerful, goal grabbing badass that you really are.
You can’t go anywhere now without running into a Brené Brown quote, and there is a reason for that. Her work on what makes humans tick and how we deal with fear and shame and blame is incredible work. In Daring Greatly, Brené teaches us how to push beyond our comfort zones and step into the best version of ourselves. Just like every book she writes, she is very open and honest about the struggles she faces with doing the very things she is advocating for, which is a real selling point for her books. She isn’t some guru who has it all together, she is just like you.
The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up
Marie Kondo’s book helps us to examine the way that we see clutter. It is not just an external issue, it can actually be reflective of the inner workings of our mind. As you read the book, you will become motivated to declutter your space, a new way of thinking that Marie says can help people gain mental clarity, revamp the way they are thinking, or even lose weight. See what magic tidying up can bring your way.
The Year of Yes
Shonda Rhimes has been a staple of television for many years, but not much was known about her personal life. In The Year Of Yes, Shonda talks about how she decides to take a year to just say yes to the things she was too afraid to do. She said yes to the things she had given up on. That journey leads her to make different decisions about her career, her personal life, and her health that are revolutionary.
Choosing Me Before We

In the book Choosing Me Before We, we are taken along one woman’s journey from always thinking of others to learning how to choose herself. In her journey, she learns that choosing herself isn’t selfishness, but a way to ensure that she has what she needs moving forward.
