'Let's get one thing straight right up front: If you're going to call me a bitch, I'm going to take it as a compliment.'
Christine Quinn, the breakout star of Netflix's hit Selling Sunset, shows women how to unapologetically own their power in business and relationships to live the life they want.
Part prescriptive how-to, part manifesto, part tell-all, Christine Quinn's How to Be a Boss Bitch candidly covers sex and money, fashion and fame, gossip and gratitude, confidence and consciousness. Quinn has been called everything from "the most-talked-about woman on TV" to "the villain 2020 needed," and she isn't shy about any of the qualities that got her the success she has today: tenacity, confidence, and fearlessness, all while dressed in full glam and designer. By sharing details of her journey from high school dropout to self made millionaire, reality TV star, and fashion and beauty entrepreneur, Quinn gives her readers the tools to define their own Boss Bitch style and manifest their own success - without being held back by society's terms.
From branding yourself with a signature style that reflects your unique strengths, to using your opponent's poison as your power, to learning the basics of a successful negotiation, to getting fired - and being ecstatic about it, How to Be a Boss Bitch is a modern guide to living a bold, authentic life.
Quinn, star of Netflix's Selling Sunset, reflects on her life as a real estate agent and encourages readers to upset expectations in this spirited if unoriginal debut. "This is a nothing-off-limits, in-your-face guide for how to break free of what you think is holding you back and finally own your life in all its eccentric, unique, passionate, and unedited glory," Quinn writes, imparting advice she's gained from acting, modeling, working in food service, and growing up Catholic in Texas. Quinn extols the benefits of "manifesting," urging readers to visualize or journal about what they want as a means of bringing about that outcome, and sets rules for dating ("never sacrifice what you value most," "protect your vagina like a boss") and professional life ("stop apologizing" at the office, "go the extra mile"). The guidance often comes across as trite and overly broad, though the chapter on managing finances includes a few worthwhile suggestions, such as "save a minimum of 20 percent" of every paycheck. Selling Sunset fans might enjoy this, but those not already in the author's camp would be best served elsewhere.
