Every mum should read or listen to this book…it will change your life!

So, if you’re a regular Mothers Who Work reader, you’ll be accustomed with some of the self-help book reviews that we often share. It’s done with no commercial reasons behind it. Self-help is the way forward and without the time (and sometimes the money) to go to a life coach, counsellor or any empowerment expert, books and audiobooks are definitely the way forward.

One such book is the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I personally love this book because it’s so different. It covers offence, why we get offended, why other people offend us, and why it even exists in the world. It covers how to make sure you never take offence again and how to make sure you don’t. This may seem a little airy fairy when you read about it, but just think about it: how many people grate on us on an average day. Whether it’s that slow driver who just won’t go up a couple of miles an hour so you can get to your child’s school in the nick of time, or that irritating colleague who is always rubbing you up the wrong way…or your spouse, or your teenager, or the delivery guy, or… The truth is there are so many instances for someone to try to steal our joy.

No time to read? Don’t be a statistic… find out how to read a book a day

According to a youGov survey almost 4 million adults never read for pleasure. While you might blame technology for taking over where a good book would pass the time, or the fact that we’re just too busy to read, making progress in life requires that you seek knowledge.

So how do you make sure you keep learning?

Book review: #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

“A #girlboss is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it,” says Sophia Amoruso, the author os the book #Girlboss.

While she’s not a mum, Sophia who hasn’t even hit the big 3-0 has an old head on her shoulder, which probably comes from life’s experiences. Thrown out of school, and getting caught shoplifting, Amoruso decided to change her life. She set up an eBay business selling vintage clothes, and when she had found her feet (and been bullied off the platform), she decided to set up her own website. The rest is history.
