Author tidbit

Don’t let her small-size and sweet smile fool you, Rachel Hollis is a badass warrior princess that doesn’t take no for an answer. She’s a mom of 4, a wife to her co-podcast host, an entrepreneur, a Motivational speaker and a 2X New York Times Bestselling author and and and!

Who’s it written for?

This book is written for anyone that’s looking for some inspiration to go after the big scary goals that still feel like unattainable dreams. If you’re a christian mom however, this book will definitely resonate with you a million times over.

What’s it about?

It’s about Rachel Hollis’ life, and the mindshift change she needed to embark on to get where she is now. Not exactly a “rags to riches” story, but kind of! This woman is wildly humble and shares her many imperfections in this book to prove that she’s human, despite all of our doubts.

3 Key Takeaways

  1. Most of us are not reaching our full potential because we are standing in our own way.
  2. Don’t succumb to the false narrative you’ve come to accept of yourself in life. i.e. Everyone else has their ducks in a row but you. Rachel assures you that it’s a lie.
  3. “Parent”, “wife” and “Adult” in whatever way works for you and your family.

Pro

Rachel Hollis addresses you in the book as if she’s chatting with her best friend over wine.

Con

You’re not actually her best friend but desperately long to be after hearing how relatable her stories are, and chuckling at her funny recurring jokes.

Cop it or Drop it?

Definitely cop it! I absorbed this book in less than 24 hours, it reads easily, it’s not too cheesy, and it helped me get out of a bad place. I highly recommend it, we could all be reminded of our greatness.
