Summary

From the woman who has built an empire of badass female entrepreneurs comes the long-awaited sequel to Girl Code. Cara Alwill Leyba's riveting voice and kinship with her audience drove the self-published success of Girl Code, a book that encouraged women to support each other in the business community. Now her many fans are ready to take the next step: building sustainable confidence from the ground up. Most women who are insecure look for the equivalent of a sugar rush, such as telling themselves they're better than other people or changing the way they look. But those tricks won't protect them from losing confidence in the future. Neither will simply being outspoken and aggressive, if those traits aren't authentic. Leyba has three simple but provocative arguments. First, confidence doesn't come from "winning" - it comes comes from ignoring the success narratives we absorb from magazines and movies. Second, the impressions people make on others depend on their personalities, not their looks - so there's no reason to use the word ugly, ever. Finally, the foundation of confidence comes from "audacious auditing", Leyba's term for identifying toxic people and habits and getting rid of them. Written in her chatty older-sister voice, and full of revealing stories from every stage of Cara's life, Like She Owns the Place will help listeners rewire their minds to be more confident. Take it from the woman who quit her job at MTV, dyed her hair pink, and made herself a best-selling author - there's a path to becoming stronger and happier.

Summary

For fans of Girl Boss by Sophie Amoruso, I Am That Girl by Alexis Jones and You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero comes the latest book from best-selling author, entrepreneur, and master life coach Cara Alwill Leyba. Girl Code is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, "side hustlers" (those with a day job who are building a business on the side), and anyone in between who wants to become a better woman. This book will not teach you how to build a multimillion dollar business. It won't teach you about systems or operational processes. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your "why", eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, that's what life and business is all about. "I am witnessing a phenomenon. It seems as though a growing group of 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. There is something dynamic that happens when women genuinely show up for each other. When we lose the facades, when we cut the bulls--t, and when we truly have each other's backs. When we stop pretending everything is perfect, and we show the messy, beautiful parts of ourselves and our work that all look awfully similar. When we talk about our fears, our missteps, and our breakdowns. And most importantly, when we share our celebrations, our breakthroughs, and dish on what works. There is no reason to hoard information, connections, or insight. Wisdom is meant to be shared, so let's start sharing what we've learned to make each other better. Let's start building each other up. Let's live up to our potential and start ruling the world."
