“I believe we can change the world. But first, we’ve got to stop living in fear of being judged for who we are.”
Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough.
In Girl, Stop Apologizing, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people—whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee—instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.
"Girl, Stop Apologizing: A Shame-Free Plan for Embracing and Achieving Your Goals" Reviews
I didn't think it was possible but I enjoyed this one even more than Girl, Wash Your Face. I didn't know who Rachel Hollis was until I read Girl, Wash Your Face earlier this year but I am glad Goodread suggested that book and I am beyond thrilled that I got an Advance Reader's copy of this book, because it is amazing! Hollis is SO inspiring and SO energetic that you cannot help but to get excited about your dreams and goals. She says things and your like "Oh My Gosh, I so do that!"
I finished the book and came straight here to review it and I am giving it to someone to read tomorrow, even though they aren't aware of it. This book is one every woman should read! Thank you for empowering women!!
I loved this book! Great ideas and tips! I could have done without the long Intro! Other than that she doesn’t disappoint.
This was AMAZING.
Excerpt from my review:
Sacrifices such as - not binge-ing the next season of Stranger Things right away like everyone else because you're too busy working on your own goals. Or working on a project for your own timeline while your family is having a board game night in the next room. These are scenarios I struggle with. Because I want to do both.
Rachel talks about writing this book while she's at one of her son's games and having other parents give her snooty looks for not paying attention while she's using the time to write her book. Okay, but when else are you supposed to fit everything that you want to do into the time you have? I want to have fun and join in and make those memories but how much do I want to write a book or achieve those other bucket list goals? The sacrifices I have to be willing to make are some of the things that have been forced under my nose from reading this book and cause me to question what it is I truly want to attain and how am I going to get there.

Thanks to Harper Collins Canada for the ARC!
I was super excited to win this advance copy of Girl, Stop Apologizing from Goodreads. What a great book to end the year/start the new year on! I will be honest that I was a bit underwhelmed by the beginning of the book. It felt like a re-worded edition of things she has written before. But I did feel like there was some solid new material to finish the book. Definitely glad I stuck it out and finished the book! Though her story is not my story and her focus is not my own, I believe she has a powerful message to share about making positive change in your life. I think the key is to walk away with the truths that speak to you and apply them.
