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.

Rachel Hollis is a podcaster I listen to frequently and she says some very motivational things and I think she really does care about her tribe and has a great vision and mission. However, I bought this book because she promised at the beginning that this would be a “tactical” guide for setting and achieving goals. If you know nothing about her or have never heard her speak, the advice she gives here may be very tactical to you.
For me, it was a bunch of the same things she has already presented in her podcast, at live events or in her start today journal. She mostly gives a little advice and shares a lot of personal stories, so it was a bit more autobiographical than I expected.
I learned one piece of tactical advice from this book and I enjoyed her chapter on “feminism” - I agree that women should call themselves BOSSES not #girlboss, thank you for speaking up, Rach!
