A list of my life-changing reads in business, mindset and nutrition


These books have had a significant impact on me, both from a mindset and business standpoint, but also in terms of new science around health and fitness.  I call this my go-to reading list because the messages are amazing, non-woo woo and very applicable to women with full, busy lives, but also want more.

And by more, I mean:

  • more confidence
  • more happiness
  • more energy
  • more money
  • more freedom
  • more hope
  • more inspirational relationships
  • and more meaning and fulfilment.

I hope you find these reads as impactful as I have.  One caveat is that I listened to most of these books while going about my day.  If you don’t have time to sit down and read, I highly recommend getting an account with Audible.

Because investing in yourself and your personal development is a very #girlboss thing to do.
