Brilliant book!

My favourite quide-life book till now! I love how Patricia is telling her story, her becoming and how she explains her choices and decisions, with 'Life lesson' for every chapter of her life. I bought the print version too, just to have it for going back when I need a reminder.
Thank you Patricia! Love the fact that you perform the reading! Brilliant book!

Man that was good.

I listened to the whole book in one day. It was engaging and inspiring. Thank you to the author for such insight and engagement, I have a new outlook on business and trying to develop my career. I know I cannot do both. So as overwhelming as it maybe to start a business I am going to start and make it successful.

Inspirational

I absolutely love this book. I have been following Patricia Bright on YouTube and Instagram for the last 4 years. I have seen her grow her channel and have been intrigued with her consistency to deliver everytime. This book is an honest account of how her true grit and determination was instilled at a young age. Patricia Bright was destined to follow her dreams by walking through the many paths of her life. Truly an inspirational book that gives you the tools to maintain the willingness to succeed.

A real and relatable read

Very easy to follow along with book. Was refreshing to hear a YouTubed write about something relevant and real, and great to have more of an insight into Patricia’s life.

Surprisingly what I needed

I know it's my own bias and rather patronising but I didn't expect this book to be as great as it is. it's so good I've already written down who I want to buy it for my 17 year old daughter is one of them. I hope hearing the things I've been saying from someone else's mouth will help the lessons sink in and resonate. I feel annoyed at myself for making that judgement and definitely need to do more work on that!

Disappointed

This book is based on regurgitated information that you can get from any other self help books. She focuses more on developing the confidence to becoming media icon so I didn't find it helpful for me.

Surprisingly practical...

Definitely inspirational and motivating. It's short but for what it is I don't see the need for it to be longer. Patricia was very concise with her words and it didn't feel repetitive. It felt very true to who is she is and her brand. A fantastic first book.

An absolutely amazing guide

I enjoyed this so much. I've been following Patricia on YouTube for the last couple years and it's so nice to see the growth and development. I love the life lessons and tips that were given. Patricia is so down to earth in the book and she really shares things that everyone can use. I would definitely recommend this book and will be keeping it as a reference.

Love it

I love when authors narrate their books, it allows me to really get to know the author. This audio was very good. I took tons of clips and made mental notes throughout this whole thing. Had funny parts in there too.

Wow, just wow.

Patricia is already known as a beauty guru and the fashionista we all didn't know we needed but she kicks it up a notch by offering financial insight and gets personal with her incredible life story. She is relatable, funny, and intelligent. It is clear that Patricia, similar to her Ted Talk, has earned her seat at the table and if there wasn't space for one she made her own.

This was an easy read, and from page one you will be hooked. It is great to have a genuine soul, and fellow woman make it big. Looking forward to more books from her, and more success for her. Way to go Patricia!

Congrats on the first book.

Inspiring us ordinary women to be extraordinary.

I started following Patricia Bright 9yrs ago and this book gives great insight on what her life was actually like. Very inspirational and motivating. This book helped me realize that on the other side of failure and embarrassment can still be great success. My favorite part was her listing what’s most important to her in life.
