Amazon Customer ReviewsGreat Advice, especially for young women starting careers
I loved this book because Brande talks about important every day issues for young women starting out - especially finances. And the "behind the scenes" tales from Celebrity Apprentice were priceless and fascinating. She is an adorable smart woman, with a lot of good advice to share.
Adore this book!
How many times have we heard of women similar to Brande being discovered at a football game or while they were surfing or some other story where they easily fall into a life of glamour? A lot of women want to have a life like Brande's. Even if you're beautiful, smart, talented, a good person-things usually won't just come to you, no matter how many times we hear those fairytale stories from other model-actresses.
Brande is very relatable despite everything she's achieved. She's worked very hard and has inspired me to do the same. I love all the tips about learning to do things for yourself and not depending on anyone else. I would personally love to fall into Brande's footsteps and be in the entertainment business, but I think this is a great read for any young woman. I was actually in a deep depression, and this book was the first step out of it. Brande also mentions The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, which has completely changed me life. This cycle of finding more happiness and inspiration keeps on going, and it all began with Brande's book. Thank you so much Brande! The woman is beautiful inside and out and definitely no dumb blonde!
