What Happened by Hillary Clinton
I have loved reading all of Hillary Clinton’s books, and in true Clinton fashion, her memoir holds nothing back. From her her disgust with Trump and his campaign to election night, Clinton shares the lessons she learned. Without doubt, you’ll be hooked from the first page.
Girl, stop apologising by Rachel Hollis
Rachel Hollis is your best friend, she tells you like it is and isn’t afraid to embarrass herself. This book was written out of necessity when Hollis felt that women haven’t been living up to their full potential. Full of her favourite quotes, hilarious stories and relatable relationships, I even bought this one for my mum for Mother’s Day.
You are a badass by Jen Sincero
I started reading this after a breakup and girl, did I make the right decision! This is the kick-up-the-butt book you should be adding to your collection. Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bitesized chapters full of sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word. This book will actually help you to change those self-sabotaging beliefs that stop you from getting what you want.
Everything is figureoutable by Marie Forleo
I am successful now, not because I had the friends or the funds but because I just figured it out. From career goals to my relationship, there isn’t one problem that I haven’t managed to work out. Forleo supports this mentality with her 9 steps. Throughout the book, she offers you guidance and wisdom, sharing with the readers ways to overcome our own personal problems and struggles. I also found the stories submitted by readers at the end of each chapter a lovely touch.
Becoming the journal by Michelle Obama
I have only started getting into my journal and turn to it each evening. This is a journal encouraging you to answer provocative questions that better help you understand yourself. I can’t wait to look back when I am older to recall the memories and life I am currently living.
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
The Executive Director of Women for Women International, Brita Fernandez-Schmidt rcommended this one to me. Don Miguel Ruiz reveals the core of self-limiting beliefs that create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, this book transformed my lift. It is a code of conduct that will change how you approach true happiness. It is a dense book but one that I would strongly recommend during this time of self-isolation.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Originally published in 1937, it could be considered dated. However, it reveals the highly effective steps to take to encourage ourselves to become wealthy. Equally important, Hill outlines the steps we should avoid in this process as well. I had to read this one a couple of times to really appreciate it and there are some easier texts to pick up on the shelf but it really is a staple for any serious businesswoman.
Work Party by Jaclyn Johnson
Johnson is the founder and CEO behind Create & Cultivate, an online platform and offline conference in the States. After moving from New York to LA, she was unexpectedly fired. Forever the go-getter she decided to launch her own business on a whim, which is now worth over a million dollars. Perfect for a millennial in business, I have read this time and time again and love the podcast too.
