This past week I haven’t felt very inspired. Sure I’ve been driven to do my work, but that seems like the only thing I’ve been doing is doing. Work has been wearing me out and when I get home i have no motivation to do any of my other work. The work that I need to work on and really, really love. I thought that maybe my trip to Chicago will help with that, but I had another idea.
One of my favorite local bookshops had their friends and family sale and I went in and grabbed a few new books to get me inspired. I have already started (and read) these and they are just the thing to get me inspired and motivated to keep going. I haven’t finished them all but just starting them makes me more focused and driven and I hope they will do the same for you! Hooray for awesome lady writers, because ALL of these books were written by women. #feminism for the win!
The Career Code – I have not really begun reading this but CollegeFashionista’s podcast peaked my interest. The two lovely writers of the book were on the podcast a while back and I just go the chance to snag their book. I have skimmed a little and their writing style mixed with career and style advice is sure to be helpful to all those career gals out there.
How to be Parisian – I have been devouring this book. It is an entertaining read and gives you all you need to know about being Parisian. Even if you are not French this book assures you that you can live your life the Parisian way!
Yes, Please – Obviously this is a great book, but it also gets me inspired. I love to read this as if it’s a really long letter wrote only to me. Amy Poehler’s stories and insights are wonderful, and if you like the book I recommend getting the audiobook. It’s like you’re having a six hour conversation with her, but you don’t do any of the talking.
#GIRLBOSS – I have begun this one as well and it is very juicy. With helpful tidbits and hacks. Basically everything you need to have a successful career or start your own successful biz. The author’s story is also an original one, with her incredibly humble beginnings to where she is now is something truly inspirational.
