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, number-one New York Times best-selling 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....

I really wanted to love this book. I had very high expectations, especially considering how much I loved the precious.
Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me.
There were enjoyable moments, but I felt as though it was very repetitive and classic “life coach” lines.
I praise the author for all that she’s accomplished; however, my impression was further solidified by listening to the “bonus” at the end of a short audio clip of one of her conferences.
At this very moment, I realized it’s all about sales.
Yes, she wants to empower and help other women to succeed, but not without personal gain.
I could hear one of her surrounding members say, “insert this clip in the back, it’s sure to boost ticket sales!”
Then, I looked up just how much those tickets cost- $50.00-1,800.00! Whoa! You want to help women to... go into debt? Follow their dreams less $1800.00 while you’re flying first class to speak? It’s as though they’re paying nearly $2,000.00 for a friend. Eek.
Cursing aside, this makes me appreciate someone like Andy Frisella that much more. This man has somewhat outed this community of “self-help entrepreneurial gurus”.
This is just my opinion... and like ____________, everybody has one.
