Jen Sincero is a bestselling author and success coach who has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives via her newsletters, seminars, private sessions, public appearances, articles, products, and books. A few years ago, Jen said goodbye to her home in California in order to travel the world indefinitely and encourage as many people as possible to live lives of unbridled awesomeness. She is the author of YOU ARE A BADASS and YOU ARE A BADASS AT MAKING MONEY.
So maybe I'm just too science-minded to buy into this kind of stuff. But I still think any self-help book, even one marketed toward people of faith should provide...well...actual help? I did, however, receive one shining bit of advice from this book that boosted that one star ALL THE WAY up to three, but that's coming at the end. HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS.
I would like to agree with the reviewer who pointed out that one section of the book (if not more) could be EXTREMELY triggering to someone with depression or mental illness in general, so please avoid this book if that might include you. The author's mentality seems to be the classic, "Well, why don't you just stop being depressed?" GIANT EYEROLL. That mentality persists throughout: Low on money? Sell a painting for $50,000! Don't have any friends? Go get some! Don't have a job? Have you tried wanting one REALLY bad and then looking?
Now for a positive bit. One extra star is for the author's humor and honesty. I found myself enjoying interjections of the author's life story along with the stories of her friends and acquaintances. She's certainly found her own voice and it does shine through. In fact, because of the tone of the book, I was able to ignore the parts I could not connect with...right up until that part about depression.
And here's that last star. I needed a bit of a pep talk. At times (depending on the chapter and the day of the week) this helped me. It was like meeting up with an old friend who's doing way better than you in life. smiling politely and eating a salad, acting as though she's not judging your hamburger while humble bragging about her career. She's a bit annoying, but sometimes it's just enough to give you a little kick in the rear that sets you in motion. You'll probably never go get lunch with Jen Sincero again because, er, "I'm just so busy this month!"
Still, she managed to say something that really set you in motion. For me, it was this:"If you had an unlimited supply of cash, what would you spend your life doing?" (79). And, long story short, I'm applying for another Master's. Thanks, Jen. This was...so fun. Let's totally meet for coffee in a couple months! I'll check my schedule!
