So I picked this book up at the library by sheer luck! And lucky I was to have stumbled on it. I have never regretted more checking out a book at the library. Confused? lol. I mean, I had to sit on my hands to not highlight and make note of all the nuggets of inspiration. I have never screenshotted (yeah, I’m pretty sure I just made that word up! lol) a book more in my life! Did I mention I finished this book in 24 hours?! I digress. Herrin is the CEO and Founder of Stella and Dot and I will admit that the thought did cross my mind that this book would be her platform to convince you to work for her company, but I sadly mistaken. She spoke about her struggles building her own empire and all the doubt and gambles she took along the way. My greatest takeaway was that “you have to be your own greatest source of belief and strength”. WOW. Talk about nailing it! It doesn’t matter if you are starting a new career, taking on a new hobby, or starting your own business no truer words have ever been spoken. I won’t be that friend you roll your eyes at because I’ve revealed the whole plot of the movie during the opening credits. Just hear me when I say this book is a MUST READ!
