[Book Review] The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Are you ready for a heaping dose of Monday motivation? The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari was recommended to me by my sister. If memory serves correct, I read it at a point in my life when I was in career crisis. I was working my first post-university job in an office that reeked toxicity. It was bad. Like, bursting-into-tears-in-the-wine-aisle-of-a-liquor-store-after-work kind of bad. Talk about un-happy hour. After two years, I had had enough. This was not an easy, nor comfortable decision; leaving without having another job to step into is financial insecurity. (When your colleagues ask where you’re going and you say, “Nowhere,” it really means you literally can’t stand to be there even a minute longer.) Anyhow, whether you’re looking for some sage wisdom or just a little up-lifting, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is hardpacked with inspirational, meme-able quotes. Enjoy! *Apologies in advance that I wasn’t able to include corresponding page numbers.  ••••• Foreward As previously mentioned, I will be publishing an abbreviated collection of themes, ideas and direct quotes from …

Podcast Review: Resetting Hormones, Weight & the Conversation Around Women’s Health

 As previously mentioned, I will be publishing an abbreviated collection of themes, ideas and direct quotes from podcasts and books that I find impactful. I hope it will be especially useful for those who can’t find the time to read a book cover-to-cover or dig through a two hour podcast. I will be titling them “reviews” but it is helpful to understand they are not necessarily “critiques”; they are simply notes with which to re-view the material in a concise manner.  Did you miss my first “review”?

Podcast Review: Postpartum Anxiety & the Motherhood Shift

Wellness hasn’t been a topic I’ve covered in the past, but recently I’ve been craving a way to amalgamate some of the health-focused materials I’ve been consuming. I’ve always had a habit of taking notes so I can revisit ideas that resonate with me at a later date. It occurred to me that I might launch a project within my website, whereby I’ll publish an abbreviated collection of themes, ideas and direct quotes from podcasts and books that I find impactful. I hope it will be especially useful for those who can’t find the time to read a book cover-to-cover or dig through a two hour podcast.  If something resonates with you, let me know by dropping a comment at the bottom of this page.
