April Book Review: You Are A Badass
By Angelique Ringgold
This is Angelique, Tim’s wife. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite books for this month’s book review – You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life, by Jen Sincero.
I read this book a little over a year ago based on recommendations from a couple of my former corporate colleagues. I was told it was “life-changing” so how could I pass that up?
You see, at the time I received that book recommendation, I was having to decide whether or not I would accept my company’s very generous severance package, and leave corporate America for the entrepreneur life. It is not an exaggeration to say that this book helped me not only make the decision to leave but to feel really good and confident in that decision.
In “You Are A Badass” Jen Sincero shares how she used to be a skeptic of self-help and spirituality, but came to embrace her own awesomeness to create an amazing life. Jen is/was an author, speaker and coach and knew she had it in her to do more than just barely be able to make her rent every month. Through some hilarious storytelling, Jen takes us through her journey of transformation, and how we can have the same kind of transformation in our own lives.
Jen Sincero is honest – sometimes brutally honest – but funny and clever at the same time. She’s like that super honest best friend who will always tell you like…coming from a place of love, not judgment. She’s your favorite aunt who shares nuggets of wisdom about relationships and money. She’s that mentor who shares field-tested methods for starting to live up to your greatness.
If you are at any sort of crossroads in your life, or even if you just occasionally doubt your own greatness, this book will give you a kick in the butt pep talk like no other!
If you’ve read the book, drop us a comment and let us know what you think. We love hearing from you!
P.S. If you have Audible I highly recommend that you listen to the author read the book. She really brings it to life!
