3 Relatable New Books About Messes and Misfits Who Made It
Let’s be real. Behind our Instagram-ready selfies, our polished Facebook profiles, and our masterful Pinterest epigrams, most of us are a bit of a mess. Almost everyone is or at least feels like a misfit at times. We have all sorts of neuroses that we’re really planning to work on at some point once we buy the perfect journaling materials, and we’re still waiting for that moment where we feel like real adults. (It’s coming, right?) That’s why it’s so great to read the new releases in this week’s book club, all about our fellow messes who made it, but in a real and human way. They never really stopped the messiness of life; they just either embraced it, made it better, or both.
Fall is right around the corner, and we're getting amped up for our next session of Selfmade, Brit + Co's 10-week interactive startup school. Designed to help you create a new business or grow your existing one, this course is personally led by Brit + Co founder Brit Morin and co-founder Anjelika Temple, and supported by more than a dozen of the top female entrepreneurs, creatives, and investors in the country. Students receive personalized coaching on everything from how to get out of your comfort zone to how to scale your business, and everything in between. And now, thanks to Office Depot, even more of you can join the course!
For the fall session, we're thrilled to team up with Office Depot to grant 200 FREE scholarship seats to the course. Scholarships are open to US residents, focusing on women of color, women from underserved and underrepresented communities, and women in need of support to help them trail-blaze. After all, we firmly believe that your support system is a huge part of how you achieve greatness, and we are here to cheer all of you on.
