“Power Your Happy”–Review

51zfsuzy5ll-_sx329_bo1204203200_An inspirational, upbeat memoir sprinkled with advice and encouraging stories from the founder of the hugely popular website POPSUGAR.

Lisa Sugar spends her days creating content about pop culture, must-have handbags, makeup, healthy recipes, and recommended sweets on Instagram.  Her company, POPSUGAR, is rapidly growing and has hundreds of employees who enjoy what they do.  At home, she and her husband, Brian, have three daughters.  Lisa enjoys attending their soccer games, as well as reading bedtime stories to them every night.

In this book, Lisa tells her readers about how she did it all, how she had to figure out what her dream job was, including taking risks, and having confidence in herself.  Because of that, she wants to motivate others to live life, to figure out what their dream jobs are, and to take risks, as well.

While sharing her personal and business stories, she provides advice on creating your dream.  She shares the pros and cons of when it comes to working to achieve your goals, such as starting a company to ditching a relationship that isn’t working, etc.  Working toward our dreams is hard work, after all, and it takes a lot of patience and experience.

This is quite an interesting memoir and I enjoyed reading it.  In fact, it got me to think more about getting back into my novel-in-progress, which is now a second draft.  Perhaps before the end of this year—or the beginning of this coming year—it’ll be ready for the world.

I recommend this book for those who love motivational reads, especially for those who are fans of POPSUGAR.  Power Your Happy: Work Hard, Play Nice, and Build Your Dream Life will be available on September 20, 2016.  Feel free to post your comments.  Happy reading!
