Summary

Oh hi! My name's Olivia and I am *clears throat* a long-time member of the Insecure Girls' Club. If you are too, then you're not alone - a recent study found 62 percent of girls and women feel insecure or not sure of themselves, with seven out of 10 believing they don't measure up. But it doesn't have to be this way! There are ways out of those slumps and the days where we feel unsure about ourselves, and that's where this book comes in.

The Insecure Girl's Handbook will guide you through your insecurity no matter what life stage you're at, pointing out the pitfalls of people pleasing, negative backchat and crippling comparison along the way. It's a carefully curated toolkit of tried and tested mechanisms and small pearls of wisdom to start combatting that feeling that holds us back from speaking up, from following our dreams or even feeling that our dreams aren't good or big enough. I hope it will provide you with a comforting hug and pep talk, from one insecure girl to another, so you can stop imposter syndrome in its tracks and halt the waves of self-doubt that sometimes unexpectedly flood our work life, friendships, relationships and every other crevice in between.

So, here's to treating ourselves like we treat others, putting ourselves first and being the secure and thoughtful women that we know we can be. I know you're good enough - and by the time you've finished listening, I'm positive you'll think so too.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Every woman needs to read this

What an inspiring and relevant book. As a young, working, professional female this book is so relatable and helps you realise you aren’t the only one with imposter syndrome! Particularly love the friendships chapter with practical ways of tackling difficult friendships and giving you the confidence to walk away from toxic ones. A must read, thank you for this book!!

Like having a conversation with a friend

Skipped the chapter on friendships as I feel I'm good in that department but I took something positive from every other chapter. I definitely think when I have bouts of insecurity in future I'll crack open this audio book as a pick me up.
