This book has helped me immensely, I've started down a new path in life thanks to her and I think I can stick to it. Listening to her book is like having the best friend in the room with you that tells you what you need to hear, maybe not what you like to hear, but what you need to hear. This book has motivated me so much in so many aspects of my life and has even motivated me to buy her other book LOL.

I did enjoy this book. much of the content spoke to me, woke me up, encouraged me to take control of my life and take action on my goals and dreams. My only real criticism is that there were a lot of times that I felt like I just couldn't relate, at all, or really follow along because it was so focused on being a good mother. I am not a mother and have chosen not to be one. More power to those that do! I salute you!!! If you're a mama and need some guidance and encouragement... this book is bomb!!! But for me, I got bored with the stories. Call me a terrible person... her testimony of her experiences were gripping but they didn't resonate with me... so I lost interest for a great deal of the book. However, overall I enjoyed it and will likely listen to it again, I'll just skip through the parts that don't speak to me. I loved the author's voice both physically as she read and in her story to call to action you living in your truth and speaking it too.

Nothing really inspirational about this book at all. It had a handful (from what I could finish listening to) of funny/ interesting moments but If you're not a mom, need to hear something more than "you can do it" to get motivated, or the idea ofl istening to a privileged white woman modestly brag about her life with celebrities sounds annoying to you then just don't even bother.
listening this book was like being at a great motivational speech. Even though maybe I didn't agree with every single thing the author talked about, I got so many great points, and really great ideas of where to start making changes that I want to make for myself. Very inspiring, I'm going out to Take On The World now!
The book was semi decent, until it essentially ended in a rampage of yelling about treating yourself like shit. I think it was maybe intended to mean that you should take care of yourself and nurture your body, but it came across more as when you prioritize yourself, you won't be fat. I found that disappointing since many times in her book she tries to relate to her audience by sharing her own struggles with weight loss and body image.
I am a super busy mama and I roll my eyes when I hear a mama say they are reading a great book or just finished a book. I think to myself how in the... do you find time to do that. So I found bestbooksales on Google. Girl I deep cleaned my kitchen and front room for two days while listening to this book and finished it in those two days. I cried when I finished because I couldn’t believe I finished a book in TWO days and everyone survived and I still got things done and homeschooled. And not just any book but a book I SOOOOO desperately needed to hear. I laughed out loud, I cried out loud and I yelled out loud. This book will be a monthly go to for a reminder of who I am and who I can become. I’m so thankful to have found a way to read this book. Super life changing.
