SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"We are people, just like you. We have heart, a soul, feelings. We see past the crap that many people take for granted, because we look deep within to find the value. We can be the best of friends, passionate and dedicated mates, most understanding but tough bosses. Take a second to talk to us, and get to know us. You will probably like us." ~ Nikki [SSBBW]

Girl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness by Cara Alwill Leyba

Cara Alwill Leyba is an author, speaker and life coach. She believes that self-help can be glamorous and seeks creative ways to portray that.

Her blog, "The Champagne Life" is specially dedicated to helping women live their most effervescent life, celebrate themselves and in her own words, "always leave room for a glass of champagne".

Girl Code is one of her most successful books - her third bestseller. In Girl Code, Cara interviews 10 female entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds and unique stories who are growing to become leaders in their industry. Her primary goal for writing the book is to bring together go-getting women for unadulterated support, positive reinforcement and mindset shifts.

Girl Code comes highly recommended to all women who have ever dreamed of and are working towards building their personal brands, following their passions, turn their dreams to reality and achieving an overall positive outlook on life.

So whether you have a regular day job with a small business on the side, are an entrepreneur or even unemployed, this book will answer some of your questions and fears and leave you inspired.

Girl code talks about how to build confidence, reconnect with your "why", eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn from the power of connecting with other women.

The female entrepreneurs interviewed in Girl Code allow readers to tap into their personal lives and learn from their experiences. The women talk about their backgrounds, how they found inspiration, their mission statements, lessons they learned along the way and how they handle fear and envy.

The interesting thing about the book is that, after every chapter you get to write down your biggest takeaways which helps you ponder over what you have read and make it personal to your life.

As we go into the new year and start to make resolutions or little changes, this is a good book to get you feeling powerful and positive with tons of inspiration for your work and personal life.

"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!"
~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836
"I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
