What aspects of the author’s story could you most relate to?

Nicole (@nicmanz15): I most related to the author’s journey of having dreams and goals and working towards them to make them a reality. My own journey is currently at the dream phase, and her story inspired me to dive in completely to make my dream a reality!

Adrienne (adri_lynn): The part that I can relate to, I feel, is when she talks about feeling overwhelmed.

What did you like best about this book?

Nicole (@nicmanz15): My favorite part of the book was the advice about creating a roadmap with guide posts and mile markers.

Adrienne (@adri_lynn): My favorite part of the book is the section about asking for help. It was one of my favorites, because I’m slowly learning that instead of trying to do everything myself, I need to ask for help sometimes.

Share a favorite quote from the book. Why did this quote stand out?

Nicole (@nicmanz15): One of my favorite quotes is “A goal is a dream with its work.” This stood out to me because it reinforced the idea that the dreams I have for my future are only going to stay dreams unless I actively work to make them a reality, a goal to work towards and to achieve.

Adrienne (@adri_lynn) : “If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no.” It’s my favorite because for years I used to say yes to everything and anything and it was burning me out. It made me realize that I can say no sometimes.

If you got the chance to ask the author of this book one question, what would it be?

Nicole (@nicmanz15): My question for Rachel Hollis would be if she has any advice for moving forward with your goal when you’re in a low place mentally and/or physically.

Adrienne (@adri_lynn): My question to Rachel would be what is the best advice that somebody has given her?
