Publisher's Summary

You know when you find yourself approaching 30 and your dreams are broken? You've got a temping career going nowhere and a student debt that's mounting, and you've just had to move back into your mum's house.

Then, to top it all off, you get absolutely annihilated with heartbreak because of an ex who is just 'not ready' but then manages to be ready, a week later, with someone else. And it is here, at your lowest point, that one of your best friends decides to remind you that you are the same age as Beyoncé. FML.

Luisa Omielan is a stand-up comedian who turned her life around after she answered the mantra every person needs in their life: What Would Beyoncé Do?!

Hilariously funny, wonderfully uplifting and brutally honest, Luisa's memoir shows us all that there is no situation in which Bey can't save the day.

    "So great. Can't recommend enough"

    She is so so great. This isn't just for women, or anyone that like biographies. This is a book for anyone that appreciates comedy that is true, the kind that makes you cringe, laugh and nod your head way too enthusiastically on the commute. Brilliant. Thank you Luisa.

    "For Fans of Omielan!"

    I've watched Luisa Omielan live several times and just really love and enjoy her stories. This isn't your typical audiobook, it's very much in her style of comedy (which I think is great!) She does go a hundred miles an hour so it's like listening to a chatty friend word vomit her life story (in a good way). Can't wait for her to release a new show and potentially new audiobook with it!

    "just can't help but love Luisa"

    I found this book to be heart warming, raw, inspiring, and kind of like snuggling up on the sofa with a best friend and a bottle of wine (or maybe lots of red bull - this woman has a lot of energy!). Thank you, Luisa, this was just what I needed! I'll be looking out for your gigs.

    "A Bit of Rambling, but OK"

    I nearly returned this book before finishing the 2nd chapter, because of her voice (fast and excitable), and the content (like listening to an overly-dramatic teenager). I decided to persevere, and found I actually enjoyed listening to her determined effort to succeed at comedy (I wish her well!). I liked her honest accounts of the ups and downstairs on her journey (told in a much calmer voice), but I had to wade through rambling passages to get to them; plus also put up with her 'toilet mouth'.
    I willed the book to finish, and was relieved when it did. Quite honestly, I doubt I'll ever listen to it again, nor will I recommend it to anyone. I am not a fan of this type of comedy. I was more interested in her life story and her struggle to succeed.
    I must say though, I laughed out loud more than once at her voice for 'Juice'; I could almost see him! Perhaps you could invent a fictional story around yourself and him? He is such a character!
    I will also probably listen to the autobiography in 20-30 years time to see what becomes of her. Such determination should reap some reward!

    "For women of all ages!"

    Loved the honesty in this book. I am a much older listener but the situations and messages resonated with me. Heartwarming and funny, I loved it and will recommend it to both of my daughters. I will miss your voice Luisa it's been a great listen!

    ""What do we want?""

    Deep and meaningful..... And well this book delivers. Thank you Luisa for taking me on such an emotional roller coaster. I'm so glad that I picked up this audio version because I loved that it felt you were reading right to me! I loved the character accents and I secretly (well not so secret now) hope that they actually talk like that! This book made me laugh and smile like an idiot driving so thanks for that too.
