The June #HRBookClub selection is “You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life” by Jen Sincero.
I picked this book for selfish reasons. While it’s true that I have an interesting career in the human resources community, I don’t always feel like a badass. Who does? It’s not impostor syndrome, but, rather, more accurate to say that I suffer from being middle-aged and totally exhausted. When you’re an entrepreneur who is always on the road — and a wife in a heteronormative marriage with suburban duties and responsibilities — your life can be ruled by calendars and meetings. Sometimes it’s good to be reminded that you’re a badass.
If you’ve never read anything by Jen Sincero, her writing style is direct and candid. She’s a popular guest on podcasts, and she has a say-it-like-you-mean-it way of speaking. Her ideas and books aren’t just for perimenopausal women like me. Many entrepreneurs like Jonathan Fields are fans of her work.
So, if you’re interested, join me for the June #HRBookClub and let’s read “You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life” together. And join me on Friday, June 29 at 2 p.m. on Twitter to discuss the book.
