// Book Club: Do The Work

This book is tiny, and it can be devoured by almost anyone in barely an hour or two. Though it's short, the message is strong! Steven Pressfield is the bestselling author of The War of Art and Turning Pro (which I have and will re-read to share a review!) This book is basically like your pocket-guide to getting shit done! Pressfield calls out the big bad monster that causes us all to panic, procrastinate, and self sabotage. He named it Resistance and he says the more important the project (small business, screenplay, diet, whatever) is to you, the harder Resistance will attack. This book basically walks you through how to execute a brilliant idea from start to finish. If this book doesn't motivate you, nothing will!

I shared a couple snaps of this book on Snapchat (@kaelahbee) recently and folks loved it! Verdict: If you've ever gotten in your own way and/or abandoned a project - READ THIS! I promise you'll thank me later!

Do you read any small business books? If so, which ones do you recommend?

// Book Club: Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton
Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

This book was so good, y'all. SO GOOD! I posted about this book on Snapchat while on vacation (I read it in one day - on the drive down to Orlando) and so many people screenshot it so I'm hoping some of y'all bought it to read! You won't regret it, I swear.

Glennon writes the popular blog Momastery, and despite the fact I've never read her blog before, I loved her book! It was so honest and funny and it got me right in the feels several times. She references God a lot, and as an atheist that can sometimes be off putting, but the way she addresses her faith really makes it easy to turn into your own "thing" or whatever. Does that make sense? At no point in the book did I feel like I couldn't relate simply because there was a difference in belief. That was an pleasant surprise honestly. I swear I was in tears at so many points in that book. Crying from laughter, then crying from sadness or heartache. 

Carry On, Warrior discusses Glennon's battle with a myriad of challenges including alcoholism, drug use, and jail time. She writes in a way that makes you say "Oh my gosh, me too!" or "I wish we could be friends!" She has such a way of being relatable and humble. I really dig that. 

I truly think any human could find this book entertaining and uplifting. I hate that I bought it back in April 2014 and only now got around to reading it, but I'll definitely be pre-ordering her new book Love Warrior which comes out next month!

Now I'm going to go read her blog!

Any books you recommend I check out?
