The New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish, Bethenny Frankel takes us on an empowering journey to A PLACE OF YES.
FRANKEL’S no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over
countless fans, and made her a nationally bestselling author and the
star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Getting Married? Now
Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great
success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A
Place of Yes.” Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a
difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that
never quite got off the ground, and lifelong money struggles. To deal
with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her
goals with authenticity and drive, including:
FIND YOUR TRUTH: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else.
ACT ON IT: You don’t have to have a master plan. But unless you do something, you’ve done nothing.
EVERYTHING’S YOUR BUSINESS: Treat every job, person, and experience as if it could lead to your next big opportunity.
IT: If you do it, say it, think it—then own it. Stand up for yourself
and fully acknowledge who you really are. Each rule is illustrated with
compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure
Bethenny. It’s easy to say no, to say “I can’t,” to expect the worst,
and to doubt yourself. But your life can be better than “not bad” or
“good enough.” It can be amazing. And by putting Bethenny’s rules
together, you can use them to be more successful, more fulfilled,
healthier, and happier than ever before.

What I loved about this book...
Its that time of year that I tend to look for a really good inspirational read that boosts me from Summer into the Autumn/Winter months. I didn't know who Bethenny was before reading this book and hadn't realised that she was a celebrity. I found this book to be so inspiring both with following Bethenney and her particular story as well as the tips and helpful advice along the way. I found her to be very upfront and honest and liked the way she got her message across in this book using aspects of her life.
What I was not fond of with this book...
I really did enjoy this book and got a lot out of it. I am definitely going to check out any other books/shows that she is in/wrote.
