Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson {Book of the Month} plus Current Favorite Tea

Are you one of those people who feel like they need to have a cozy blanket, some tea or hot chocolate, the fireplace, and a really good book during the cold season? So am I.

I made it a goal to get back into reading this month and I’m happy to say that I’ve started! I downloaded a few books yesterday from BookBub (really great resource for free and cheap books) and from my Amazon Kindle First Books and among the lists of books I downloaded, I picked Revelation by Randi Cooley Wilson.

Current Reads: Dancing The Dream & Clockwork Prince

I picked these two books for this posts current reads for two reasons. I chose Michael Jacksons’ Dancing the Dream because of his death anniversary coming up and I chose Clockwork Prince because my library finally got it in stock and I was able to check it out.

If you don’t know yet(which I doubt you do) I am a huge Michael Jackson fan. I am not going to go into history about this because I always get super emotional and off track when talking about Michael, and we don’t want tears(Or a snotty runny nose, ew!). I have been a fan all of my life but unfortunately became a fan of the man Michael in 2009.

Book Review: Get-Your-Life-Together Guide by Koereyelle!

Excerpt from Amazon.com. “WERK 101: Get-Your-Life-Together Guide is the ultimate handbook sharing health, wealth, and lifestyle lessons for the modern-day woman. Koereyelle DuBose, “the voice of single women,” fiercely empowers you to WERK for what you want by first WERKing on you. Get ready to let go of the victim mentality and be liberated as Koereyelle shows you how to create a powerful, positive mindset, and design your life’s destiny on your own terms. Let’s WERK!” By Koereyelle DuBose

I have had this in my draft since March and that is because I wanted the words to really be honest and mean something to the readers of this post and of the book. I want to help support Korereyelle and her business because that’s what Queens do: support and uplift other Queens. I know her book helped me get my life together (and I’m not just saying that because that’s the title).

The thing that struck me most from this book was Koereyelle’s quote “If you aren’t working on your dream, then you are working on someone else’s dream.” Out of all the great things about this book, that quote stuck a cord in me and that cord has melted into my brain. I was always against working for others because I had dreams of starting and running my own business. Yes, there are people out in the world that are perfectly fine with a job. In fact, we even need those people. It would be very hard to run a business without employees and such. But for the dreamers, the visionaries…the people who want more out of life than working a 9-to-5, why would you want to work on someone else’s dream?? That’s not for us and that’s why most of the time, it doesn’t work out for us.

Reading that quote from GYLT guide just helped make my passion for my business that much more special. I can help people with my own business. I can bring greatness from my own business. I can enjoy my work and create a lifestyle that works for me with my own business. Please let this sit with you and marinate. If there is one thing that I am learning from this world of entrepreneurs who are women (single or not) it’s that your business is your business. What you do no one else can do.

On this journey of starting my own business I have learned the hard cold truths of the world. That is: some people (sometimes the closest people in your life) do NOT want to see you succeed unless they are succeeding with you. I can’t tell you how many ‘congratulations’ I’ve seen someone, who was just hired to a corporate world job, receive opposed to someone who has decided they are going to start their own business. It’s sad when you really think about it. There are many entrepreneurs in the world, becoming successful everyday, why is it still ‘unrealistic’ to so many folks around the world??

This isnt just a book or a one time read. This is exactly what it says: a guide to get your life together. This guide is for starting, throughout, following up and keeping your shit together! Koereyelle also has a Werkbook that goes along with the guide. I dont have it yet but I definitely plan on getting it soon.

Another great thing I love about this guide is that it gives you health tips, not just work and life tips. And the health tips arent the basic “eat this and do this workout” the guidelines give you tips on skincare, specifically what Koereyelle uses herself! She speaks of ACV, vitamins and more! All holistic approaches. I respect her for that part. Too many times I have read guides or books that tells me I need to get this expensive product or natural resource and use it to help in its respective use of life. Personally, I quickly put those books down and never pick them back up.

I am going on vacation this weekend and out of all the books I’ll bring on my kindle, I know I will bring my GYLT guide by Koereyelle as the only physical copy because it’s a great pick me up when you need some encouraging words. Vacation is all about relaxing but this is a business vacation so there might be some stressful times too. I’d rather be safe and have the book with me than to be sorry and stressed out because I can’t read Koereyelles’ similar situation.

All in all, you should definitely get this book if you are looking for a relating lifestyle that you’re currently going through, have gone through or want to have. This book has it all and more! You can purchase the book from Koereyelle’s website or from Amazon. I will let you know, her website has much more goodies ready and available to purchase if you want more!

 

Happy reading and may your business and life flourish in the world!

Shai.

Girl CodeGirl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur by Cara Alwill Leyba

I am witnessing a phenomenon. It seems as though a growing group women entrepreneurs all around the world has discovered the secret to success and happiness in both their lives and careers. It’s almost as though there is a hidden, underground world of power playing females who have all cracked a magical code: they think positively, they support one another, and they truly believe they can have it all —and you can, too.

 

I am almost done with Clockwork and am 12% into Girl Code. I have both books on my kindle. I never really did a book review but once I finish these books, I will try my best to provide you with a review without spoiling the good parts!

 

Stay happy! Live. Love. Laugh.

Shai.
