Book Of The Month: You Are A Badass By Jen Sincero

"Faith is the muscle you use when you decide to blast outside of your comfort zone and transform your life into something that's practically unrecognizable to you in your present reality. Faith smothers your fear of the unknown. Faith allows you to take risks. Faith is the stuff of "leap and the net will appear."" ~ Jen Sincero (p. 117)


If you're looking for a thoughtful, witty, and inspiring new book that will leave you feeling hopeful and full of life, this is it.


I really enjoyed diving into this book, because if I'm being honest, I needed someone/something to remind me that I'm a badass too!


Jen Sincero shares her personal life experiences and how it pushed her to transform the way she viewed herself, which therefore, transformed the way she viewed the world, and ultimately, transformed how she lived her life.


I really appreciated her authentic personality that she displays so well through her writing, story telling, and personal guidance. You will not be disappointed with this book!
