You are a badass

This book is hands down my all time favorite success mindset jolt. I have read it at least 10 times. In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, you will learn how to identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want, create a life you totally love, and make some damn money already.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.

unf*ck yourself

Sometimes I just need a swift kick in the pants, and this is it! This read is a BS-free self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations.

It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

fail until you don’t

Bobby Bones is a radio and television personality best known as the host of the marquee country music morning program “The Bobby Bones Show” and a mentor on ABC’s American Idol. I feel in love with his country artist interview-style podcast “Bobbycast”, then decided to get this book and loved it! This New York Times Best Seller delivers an inspirational and humorous collection of stories about his biggest misses in life and how he turned them into lessons and wins.

Bobby’s mantra is Fight. Grind. Repeat. A man who refuses to give up, he sees failure as something to learn from.

Girl Code

This book is a powerful shot in the arm of girl-power-goodness! Girl Code is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, side hustlers, and any­one in between. This book won’t teach you how to build a multimillion-dollar company. It won’t teach you about systems or finance. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your “why,” eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, that’s what life and business are all about.

rich as f*ck

Finance is not my favorite topic, but this book fires me right up! Reading Rich As F*ck is sure to ignite an avalanche of change in the most important areas of your life. Once you finally see money for what it is and realize your power over your finances, life will never be the same. It’s time you know the truth about money. The magnetic words on these pages will open your heart and mind and help you see the truth about how money actually works.

The Miracle Morning

This book will give you the simplest and most effective step-by-step process to wake up each day with more energy, motivation, and focus to take your life to the next level. It’s been right here in front of us all along, but this book has finally brought it to life. I’ve been following this process since I read this book a couple years ago and it has been life changing, highly recommend!

the Audacity to Be Queen

The messages in this book are now my newfound manifesto! The Audacity to be Queen grants permission to take yourself off the back burner financially, romantically, physically, and socially-and step into our greatness. The days of dismissing yourself and your desires end here. No longer must you pretend to be anything other than brilliant, capable, and fabulous. The world needs women like us to own our power, raise our standards, and contribute our talents like never before. When a woman chooses to be a Queen, everyone benefits.

joy in the little things

The gorgeous messages and illustrations in this book feed my soul. The beloved fashion and lifestyle illustrator celebrates the best, most important joys of all--the little pleasures. In this blog I refer to this concept as “fluffing your day”. This guide is full of ideas in relaxation, fashion, beauty, home, travel and inspiration for tapping into your own happiness and creativity.

Atomic Habits

I’ve always believed how you do one thing is how you do everything, and this book coaches you through game-changer lifestyle habits. No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. Learn practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

present over perfect

Living in the moment is always my ultimate goal, and it is oh so much easier said than done! In this book the author invites you to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life.


Essentialism and minimalism are two of my newfound goals. This book reveals a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution toward the things that really matter. Reclaim control of your own choices about where to spend your precious time and energy—instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for you.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

I just feel like dropping the f bomb every time I pick up this book. The message is needed and very powerful. There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about so we need to figure out which ones really matter. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor.

Ready to dive even deeper into feeling happier, more fulfilled, confident, and in control of your life?
