I’m so glad I didn’t let the negative reviews stop me from listening. I bet those reviewers didn’t even finish this book.

Jen did an amazing job of discussing how to shift our mindset around money, not only through affirmations and coaching, but taking action and investing in ourselves.

I am definitely going to listen to this book again and again

What's wrong with black women? Not a damned thing The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti-black-woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. Tamara Winfrey Harris takes sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight-up truth about being a black woman in America.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.

Truly a remarkable story. A must listen!! Trevor Noah is truly brilliant and read the story so vibrantly and eloquently. I'm blown away. He has been through things many of us cannot imagine and to know who he is today is a true testament to his resilience, courage, and intelligence. So much respect for this man.

At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman.

Now that this book is finished! It is a very raw and uncensored image of post colonial Jamaica. There are so many layers to this story and the characters; I never knew what would happen next. Great read! Very well read by Bahni as well
