Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Like She Owns the Place written and read by Cara Alwill Leyba. 

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you abandoned the idea of perfection and decided to embrace your whole self - and, even better, love yourself? 

Imagine if you stopped putting your happiness in the hands of others. Imagine you stopped waiting for validation from external forces and learnt how to be intimate with failure, cellulite, success, wrinkles, imperfection, mistakes, vulnerability. Imagine what life would be like if you just decided to feel good now. 

In Like She Owns the Place, master life coach and motivational speaker Cara Alwill Leyba teaches you that confidence is all about knowing yourself. Leyba lays down the foundations to help you build confidence from the ground up, which includes ditching the idea of winning, editing toxic people and habits from your life and embracing the achievements of other women. 

Follow Cara's advice and you'll be walking into every room like you own the place.

Self esteem work for women

This book in my opinion, is similar to Girl Wash Your Face and You're a Badass. Easy to follow and listen to. I would have loved more information and details from the author on how to connect with our vulnerabilities to build up our confidence. Excellent use of personal stories to connect with readers. It is a fantastic guide for women on how to build and maintain her confidence.

disappointing

I'm halfway through and might have to return this. wishy-washy musings rather than actionable strategies

Really enjoyed this book!

Worth listening to, loved the book. Very inspiring and down to earth. Her voiceover is much nicer to listen to than most. I got a little bit lost in the last chapter but she came back and the overall finish was good.

Just wonderful - very personable

Fueling, boosting and downright motivating to believe in you as you. I listened to it every night and went to bed feeling so alive. Cara talks to the listener which I love.
