Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis

Girl, Stop Apologizing: A Shame-free Plan for Embracing and Achieving Your Goals

The best-selling author of Girl, Wash Your Face and founder of urges women to stop feeling self-conscious about their ambitions and to start pursuing their dreams with confidence, outlining specific behaviors that promote moving forward. (Atlas Publishing)

Hollis’s plan comes in three phases: letting go of excuses (such as being unworthy of success or paralyzed by fear of failure), adopting new practices (asking for help, learning to say no), and honing new skills (organization, and optimism). She also provides a list of practices she calls the “five to thrive”: proper hydration, waking up earlier, giving up one unhealthy food for 30 days, daily movement, and daily faith-based gratitude practices. Hollis’s writing is beautifully blunt, and she humbly thanks her fans for her success. Her actionable ideas and captivating voice will encourage women to believe in themselves.  (Publishers Weekly 2019)
