I am witnessing a phenomenon. It seems as though a growing group women entrepreneurs all around the world has discovered the secret to success and happiness in both their lives and careers. It’s almost as though there is a hidden, underground world of power playing females who have all cracked a magical code: they think positively, they support one another, and they truly believe they can have it all —and you can, too. There is something dynamic that happens when women genuinely show up for each other. When we lose the facades, when we cut the bullsh*t, and when we truly have each others backs. When we stop pretending everything is perfect, and we show the messy, beautiful parts of ourselves and our work that all look awfully similar. When we talk about our fears, our missteps, and our breakdowns. And most importantly, when we share our celebrations, our breakthroughs, and dish on what works. There is no reason to hoard information, connections, or insight. Wisdom is meant to be shared, so let’s start sharing what we’ve learned to make each other better. Let’s start building each other up. Let’s live up to our potential and start ruling the world. GIRL CODE is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, “side hustlers” (those with a day job who are building a business on the side), and anyone in between who wants to become a better woman. This book will not teach you how to build a multimillion dollar business. It won’t teach you about systems or operational processes. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your “why,” eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, that’s what life and business is all about.
First I would like to say I found out about this novel via Cara’s Podcasts that someone recommended and I’ve found her views on life so empowering and motivating especially as a woman in this day and age. If you’ve not listened to her podcasts check them out immediately!
I can hear Cara’s tone as I’m reading this, since this was written she has evolved even more so as we all do. Cara like anyone has her loves, likes and dislikes. What one person loves to do such as their handbags, pampering themselves, spending as much time as possible with their children, running their business and so forth is their choice and is their version of “being successful” as Cara points out early in this novel. This is very true! She is just a person pointing out her views and her likes and dislikes. For her, at that time those where her values and she is also trying to relate to the majority of girls out there. If your version of success is completely different that’s totally fine, Cara just points out her version which involves a lot of self care and what she seems to be her self care.
I can’t wait to read the rest of Cara’s novels as always, I always feel so motivated and upbeat after reading or listening to Cara’s views.
