How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life by Lilly Singh

Lilly Singh is #goals. When I want to feel motivated, I look up to Lilly, Issa, and Beyonce. They’ve put in so much hard work, collaborate often, and continue to hone their craft.

Lilly’s audience is primarily teenagers, but I’ve had major takeaways from this book such as:

  • Take control of your own life

  • Fail forward and put yourself in uncomfortable situations in order to grow

  • Dream big, aim high, and trust your team to make it happen

  • Surround yourself with people who are more skilled then you

  • Include pictures in the book where you are SLAYING!

If you want to read a motivational book filled with stories and hilarious puns, this is the book for you!

Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook

Before reading Unshakeable:

  • I never knew I had a mutual fund, I thought I just had a TFSA and RSP. I also didn't know I was paying almost 3% in fees vs other places where I could pay less than 1% in fees.

  • I thought you could ONLY invest in stocks in the stock market

  • I thought all major companies were publicly traded

I learned so much about investing from this one book. Unshakable is one of my top books, hands down.

How to be Here

No one is just a mom, just a construction worker, just a salesperson, just a clerk - because you doing your work in your place at this time is highly original and desperately needed.

It may have been done or said by someone else. That’s a distinct possibility. It may have been done or said before.

But it hasn’t been done or said by you. It hasn’t come through your unique flesh and blood, through your life, through your experience and insight and perspective.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

Extra information is more than useless. It’s harmful. It confuses the issues. What screws up doctors when they are trying to predict heart attacks is that they take too much information into account.
