:ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I love that I almost closed the door on my businesses too many times to count, and now I am living my dream by doing what the heck I want.
I love that so many people (including every family member and friend) told me no, and I am living proof that you gotta do what you gotta do.
I love that I learned there’s a difference between sex and love-making, and I have a “Wonder Woman” of a wife and three awesome + one on the way kids to prove it.
I love that I quit the 9-5 so I can work from 7 in the morning to noon or 10 at night through midnight cause my brain seems to work better at those times.
I love the day I got my rock star confidence back and knew the world was a much better place living my life and not someone else’s.
I love Mexican food and sushi. Yum! (Yes, it’s that important to include here!) Coffee too!
I love that my biggest fear isn’t failure, being worried about what someone thinks, taking risks, or not winning. My BIGGEST fear is not doing what I know I’m supposed to.
And, finally? I love that I can show you the same.
I had a really hard time finding positive things to say about this book once I saw that a man wrote it for females. I opened the book while trying to keep an open mind, however. The author didn’t really help me in terms of liking the book with his constant stories about his life with a paragraph or two at the end of every chapter with an uplifting quote or how to tell us, women, to be more in control of our lives and happiness. I mean, this is something some people spend 400+ pages on, not quick quotes and a paragraph of needing to say no more as women. I do agree with him on those small snippets, however, and the author does provide reflective questions at the end of every chapter. The author more made it seem as though he just wanted an outlet to talk about his life and how he’s now here to help women. It was a tad bit preachy at some points, but only 1-2 chapters worth, and it didn’t overshadow the ‘message’ he was trying to get across while telling me his life story. Overall, I’d rather read something in the self-help section that’s become more popular.
I’d give this book a 1/5.
