After graduating from college, Jen Gotch was living with her parents, heartbroken and lost, when she became convinced that her skin had turned green. Hallucinating that she looked like Shrek was terrifying, but it led to her first diagnosis and the start of a journey towards self-awareness, acceptance, success, and ultimately, joy.
With humor and candor, Gotch shares the empowering story of her unlikely path to becoming the creator and CCO of a multimillion-dollar brand. From her childhood in Florida where her early struggles with bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety, and … Read more...
After relating so much with her book, I was ecstatic when Linsday offered to do a Q&A on my blog. So much has changed since a month ago, and this book is more important than ever. Our interview was done in February (when we didn’t yet grasp what was … Read more...
For years, we’ve been telling women that in order to succeed at work, they have to change themselves first—lean in, negotiate like a man, don’t act too nice or you’ll never get the corner office. But after sixteen years working with major Fortune 500 companies as a gender equality expert, Michelle King has realized one simple truth—the tired advice of fixing women doesn’t fix anything.
The truth is that workplaces are gendered; they were designed by men for men. Because of this, most organizations unconsciously carry the idea of an “ideal worker,” … Read more...
I love finding kindle book deals, it is like the ultimate online treasure hunt. Historically, I have found that Sundays tend to have the best selection, and today is no exception.
I like to “stock up” on kindle books so that I will always have something to read, wherever I am! Do you do this too? I could probably read for years with the ones I already have, but that doesn’t stop me. 😉 Alright, on to the deals for today!
Not only was this week Super Tuesday (did you get out and vote?!) but it was also an amazing new book publication day! I am little behind on posting these but I didn’t want to miss sharing all of these amazing new titles.
Some of these I have already read and some are on my own TBR list. Whether you are looking for a thrill, a family drama, self-care, or some thought-provoking non-fiction there really is something for everyone this week! Alright, on to the new books!
I have been meaning to check in with a coffee talk blog post and now we are halfway through February! How is your month going?
It has been a more challenging winter for me personally. The weather has been particularly dark and gray and I know that adds to the overall feeling of sadness and increased anxiety for me personally (and also many other people…)
While this is something I have been managing quite well for a while now (with medication, regular therapy, exercise, talking with close friends, time outside, etc), it doesn’t mean … Read more...
Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she’s kept since age fifteen, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining.
This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn’t want to lie.
Hello! I have been planning on doing this post for weeks and I am so happy to finally be sharing it today. For some reason, figuring out which books would make this list was much harder than I initially anticipated. I think this is partly because I read so many amazing books last year that it was just hard to narrow it down, which is NOT a bad problem to have.
Tracking My Reading:
After overthinking it for weeks, I decided I was going to look back at all the books I read and then decide … Read more...
