The Courage to Be Creative by Doreen Virtue
LOVING THIS BOOK SO MUCH. So I haven’t finished this one, but my god it just speaks to me on so many levels. If you are a fellow creative, whether that be a blogger, an artist, a photographer, an actor, whatever your passion, and you feel sometimes nervous to shine or to fully commit to your talents, this book will truly help you. I haven’t even gotten to the end, and it has helped me leaps and bounds. Full of wonderful advice and encouraging words to inspire you to be super creative and reach for the best of you.
Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell
The main aim of this book is for you as a woman, to dig deep inside you and unbind what your true calling in life is. To unleash your feminine power, your natural intuition and be strong and bold in your life. This book inspires you to be the best version of you and then awakens you to also help the women around you reach their full potential. If you have a spiritual side to you, then you will enjoy this book. I adore the work of Rebecca Campbell and thoroughly enjoyed reading this. This one is the quirkier of picks, but I do honestly believe it is the most thought provoking.
Little Black Book by Otegha Uwagba
Before I followed this author on Twitter, I came across her book in the Amazon BestSellers list. Having recently made the decision to brave it in the big wide world of being a female entrepreneur, I obviously needed to read this. I picked it up from an Oliver Bonas store and read it in one sitting – from the time it takes to get to London Euston from Manchester Piccadilly. I loved how easy the information was to read and digest, and how straight to the point the book is. I have since read over it, with a pen in hand, making notes as I go along. Feeling flat and lack lustre? This will fire up your girl boss flames and get you going again.
How To Be An Overnight Success by Mrs Rodial
This book is actually my mum’s and I may have accidentally on purpose not given it back to her. Sorry Mum. My mum loves reading success stories and motivational books, hence why this was on her pile of recently purchased. With the intention of only reading a few chapters to pass some time whilst in London, I found it almost impossible to put down. I was gripped throughout and totally inspired by Maria’s story. It only took me a few days to read, but this is another that I go back to, to read snippets from when I need some inspiration. If you are looking to launch your own product or business, or your wish is to build your own empire some day, then this book is for you.
I have read so many books this year, but I am always on the look out for more and more. I would love it if we could all share our recommendations, of books that help us to be the best versions of ourselves and those that inspire others to create and achieve their goals. What books are you reading right now?
