Publisher's Summary

You know when you find yourself approaching 30 and your dreams are broken? You've got a temping career going nowhere and a student debt that's mounting, and you've just had to move back into your mum's house.

Then, to top it all off, you get absolutely annihilated with heartbreak because of an ex who is just 'not ready' but then manages to be ready, a week later, with someone else. And it is here, at your lowest point, that one of your best friends decides to remind you that you are the same age as Beyoncé. FML.

Luisa Omielan is a stand-up comedian who turned her life around after she answered the mantra every person needs in their life: What Would Beyoncé Do?!

Hilariously funny, wonderfully uplifting and brutally honest, Luisa's memoir shows us all that there is no situation in which Bey can't save the day.

"What do we want?"

Deep and meaningful..... And well this book delivers. Thank you Luisa for taking me on such an emotional roller coaster. I'm so glad that I picked up this audio version because I loved that it felt you were reading right to me! I loved the character accents and I secretly (well not so secret now) hope that they actually talk like that! This book made me laugh and smile like an idiot driving so thanks for that too.

Really just bad.

Poorly written, not funny for a comedienne. Half assed attempt at her own biography. Nothing to do with Beyonce or what Beyonce would do. Just a surfacey events catalog of her failed attempts at stardom. A part by part of every excruciating detail of a Mediocre person's mediocre attempts at landing a non mediocre job. I listened hard to try to gain some insight. Anything....Nothing. So dry. It was just all" first I went here and did that. Then this happened, I did this and that, next t his, after that. Then that happened. Then this then that."I wrote more interesting book reports in 2nd grade Yawn.

So great. Can't recommend enough

She is so so great. This isn't just for women, or anyone that like biographies. This is a book for anyone that appreciates comedy that is true, the kind that makes you cringe, laugh and nod your head way too enthusiastically on the commute. Brilliant. Thank you Luisa.

For Fans of Omielan!

I've watched Luisa Omielan live several times and just really love and enjoy her stories. This isn't your typical audiobook, it's very much in her style of comedy (which I think is great!) She does go a hundred miles an hour so it's like listening to a chatty friend word vomit her life story (in a good way). Can't wait for her to release a new show and potentially new audiobook with it!

Loved it! 😍 funny & empowering for women!

I purchased this audio book on a whim., having never heard of the author or her show. Was expecting something else, maybe an insight into the mind of today's teenagers?

Instead heard an inspirational story of one woman's battle to succeed. Very honest and at times hilarious!! I laughed out loud!!

Absolutely loved her message to women to believe in and love themselves.

Amazing book

Hilarious, heartfelt and inspiring! Narration is wonderful too- love all Luisa’s impressions! All young women in their 20s and 30s should read this! Made my commute bearable all week and will now miss listening to Luisa’s voice.

Fun, fabulous and real

I loved it, I didn’t even know who Luisa Omielan was when I picked this book but I’m so glad I did because now I’m a massive fan. Funny, relatable and fun. Every girl should take a leaf out of Luisa’s book. She is a #girlboss

#Flawless

This book is hilarious and listening to Luisa Omielan narrate the audio edition is like a 7 hour stand-up comedy performance. It's magical. If this book isn't a modern feminist manifesto, I don't know what is. I laughed out loud, cried out loud, and could not wipe the smile of my face at the end of it. Now I just have to wait for her to come back to Australia so I can see one of her shows. In the meantime, I could listen to this book over and over.
