Publisher's Summary

From the woman who has built an empire of badass female entrepreneurs comes the long-awaited sequel to Girl Code.

Cara Alwill Leyba's riveting voice and kinship with her audience drove the self-published success of Girl Code, a book that encouraged women to support each other in the business community. Now her many fans are ready to take the next step: building sustainable confidence from the ground up.

Most women who are insecure look for the equivalent of a sugar rush, such as telling themselves they're better than other people or changing the way they look. But those tricks won't protect them from losing confidence in the future. Neither will simply being outspoken and aggressive, if those traits aren't authentic.

Leyba has three simple but provocative arguments. First, confidence doesn't come from "winning" - it comes comes from ignoring the success narratives we absorb from magazines and movies. Second, the impressions people make on others depend on their personalities, not their looks - so there's no reason to use the word ugly, ever. Finally, the foundation of confidence comes from "audacious auditing", Leyba's term for identifying toxic people and habits and getting rid of them.

Written in her chatty older-sister voice, and full of revealing stories from every stage of Cara's life, Like She Owns the Place will help listeners rewire their minds to be more confident. Take it from the woman who quit her job at MTV, dyed her hair pink, and made herself a best-selling author - there's a path to becoming stronger and happier.

So disappointed, loved her other book

I loved Cara’s other book and usually what she stands for. I was so excited for this release, pre purchased it. The book actually makes you feel worse about yourself. Cara gives this superiority and gives off a judgy vibe like she’s better than everyone else. While saying “do you” but then your not quite as good cause your not doing my way. I get what she’s trying to do with the “high vibe” movement but she went about it so harshly. Definitely disappointed if you let people be them don’t write like your better than others.

Cara delivers!

This book will inspire you to take a good look at what is really going on inside. I personally love the mantras she has in here and even have one hanging in my living room! Amazing book and different thought process behind some of the same ideas I’ve heard before!! Brava Cara!

4.5

I love when authors narrate their own books because nobody knows what words to emphasize more than the authors themselves since they know their own sass! So, 5 stars to the narration.

As far as the content, well, there were moments where I found myself saying “YASSSS, QUEEEENNN! Preach it!” or even nodding, agreeing all excitedly. There were parts that I absolutely LOVED this book. But just as well, there were parts where I felt like “I have heard this before” in other self-development books. These weren’t that many, but it happened more than once.

However, I do feel like women everywhere, especially those that are people-pleasers (like me!) need this!

For millennial bloggers

It seems like her biggest problem was whether to dye her hair pink. not bad at advice but not very real world fo those of us with regular jobs.
