“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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Self-improvement is serious business, but who says it can’t be fun? That’s the message that turned blogger and motivational speaker Rachel Hollis’ Girl, Wash Your Face into one of 2018’s breakout hits. With her follow-up, Hollis amplifies her earthy-but-inspirational philosophy, zeroing in on the message that women shouldn’t be afraid to want things for themselves—and to go after them with everything they’ve got. For those of us who tend to put others’ needs first, that simple idea can seem more scary than empowering. But Hollis’ confidence-building pep talks and relatable humor help quell the anxieties that often hobble our plans before we even start.
