Publisher's Summary

What if you could, with a little effort, live an extraordinary life? A life in which you feel deep passion for everything you do and always have time for what matters most? A life in which you have the power, the daring, and the will to make your boldest dreams come true, all while you happily leave feelings of inadequacy or guilt behind?

Yes, it is possible to take your life from ordinary to extraordinary. The secret? Cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit inside you - the spirit that allows you to embrace your individuality, to look not just at what is but at what could be, to believe in yourself beyond reason and to step up to creating your own definition of happiness and success - a version of success in which work and family life happily coexist - instead of chasing a cookie-cutter version.

Here, Jessica Herrin, serial entrepreneur and founder and CEO of the Stella & Dot Family Brands, shows how the classic traits of successful entrepreneurs are ones each one of us can develop - and use not only to create companies but also to create extraordinary lives. Whether we work corporate jobs, run families, or run our own businesses, Herrin offers realistic, attainable steps each one of us can take to achieve extraordinary success on our own terms. Through candid and inspiring lessons from her life as a successful CEO and working mother of two as well as stories of many amazing individuals she's met along the way, Herrin inspires and empowers us to dial up the sound of our own voices and make our authentic dreams into reality.

This book isn't about having it all; it's about having what matters most to you. It is about how to find your extraordinary - your extraordinary career, your extraordinary happiness, your extraordinary life.

the most amazing book every!!!

Such a well-written book. I listen to it on Audible, but purchase the book as well. Looking forward to taking notes on the pages filled with wisdom. If this book does not jump start anyone's anyone's journey to success not much will. Thank you Jessica for taking the time to put this work together.

A Self Improvement Greatest Hits compilation !!

Jessica Herrin is a self made woman with a passion for hard work, and making a difference i the lives of women. I can't express how much her words resonated with me. No BS. So much clear eyed truth and wisdom, honesty and the experience in business few women in her generation have. So much practical wisdom from so many awesome sources, it's like a " greatest hits" of the best minds out there. Part motivational, part self improvement. The best of both. It's just brilliant!!

This was a great book and definitely not ordinary

Loved how Jessica put her own personal experiences into this book! it was a great and easy read. Her wisdom and insight is not only genuine but inspiring. I would recommend this book to every woman out there looking to find their next love in life. The last chapter pretty much sums up why women should unite and I completely believe it as well!!!

Not exactly what I was expecting

I almost stopped listening midway through the book, as I got tired of listening to all of her Stella and Dot success stories. I understand that she was attempting to share inspirational stories, but after hearing multiple "success" stories it began to feel more like an annoying late night infomercial on repeat. We get it, those ladies succeeded because they were desperate to support their families. Another thing that bothered me was the way she spoke at times, like she was just reading off "inspirational" quotes. It felt cold and disconnected from the rest of the stories she shared. Overall, I didn't get what I was expecting when I originally bought the book. Sidenote: I looked up Stella and Dot reviews on Glassdoor as I became intrigued in the idea of becoming a sales lady, only to find that there were a lot of negative reviews from past sales people. I was disappointed to say the least.

Awesome

Practical, funny, transformative. Not just for women - takes a lot of cognitive science and makes it useful. No coddling here, either. Really well done
