Today we are going to talk about December’s book of the month, You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. But first, let’s check out this book and see what it is all about.
Bestselling author, speaker, and success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver. Full of blunt humor, sage advice, and the occasional swear word, You are a Badass offers its readers new opportunities for growth through 35 chapters of exercises, suggestions, and hilariously inspiring stories.
From “Fear is for Suckers” to “Your Brain is Your Bitch” these chapters provide enlightening lessons: How to stop doubting your greatness, how to love what you don’t love about yourself, and how to tap into source energy to live a bigger life than you’ve ever imagined.
Questions to think about and/or answer:
- What passage from the book stood out to you?
- Did you learn something you didn’t know before?
- How serious are you about “not settling” and making the quantum leap to the life you want?
- The author suggests writing a letter in present tense to yourself with all of the details (including source of income) of how you wish your life to be, Your thoughts?
“Sincero (Don’t Sleep With Your Drummer) brings a fun, feminine verve to now well-tread self-help tropes… The tone is far more feisty than academic, and there’s humor on every page, all of which is exactly what her intended audience most needs”
—Publishers Weekly online
“If touchy-feely self-help tomes make you feel, shall we say, less than inspired, this no-nonsense manifesto to awesomeness might be just what you’re looking for. Filled with blunt and sassy advice, do-it-yourself exercises in personal transformation, and a whole lot of hilarity, You Are a Badass will silence your inner critic, and help you build a life worthy of the kind of Facebook news feed that others envy. Take a day off from looking for your inner goddess, and spending some time cultivating your outer badass instead.”
“I adore Jen’s realistic and funny take on all matters of living an awesome life. She has such a gift for writing in a very digestible way that will appeal to everyone. If you’re looking for purple unicorns and rainbows you won’t find them here, what you will find are practical and easy ways to connect with your inner badass and change your life.”

Mocha Girls Speak
Mocha Girl Donielle This book was beyond inspiring and just dead on truthful. It is the type of book that you need to read when you have that dream you want to come true, but you just continue to doubt your capabilities that you can actually do it. The exercises, such as rewriting letters of all the excuses by replacing them with affirmations or making a vision board to actually see our dream to remind us daily why we have been placed on this earth, are all good tools to help remind us to stay committed. Jen Sincero kept it all the way honest with her blunt yet humorous approach. I’m ready to be the Badass I know I am, and live the life I know I can and will.
Mocha Girl Trelani I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It said/reaffirmed all that I needed to hear. There are a good bit of highlightable phrases making this a definite future re-read. If you’re not seeking to make the leap into entrepreneurship or elevate as an entrepreneur, then this book isn’t for you. All about universal synchronicity, faith, desire, and birthed dreams. Funny as hell, motivating, and thought provoking.
