The best bits: Its got to be Chapter 4 Get seriously f*cking organised. ‘The ‘f-bomb’ was only for strategic effect’, but honestly, Lorraine has some great tips to help you get organised. In this empowering chapter Lorraine shares her strategies to get your act together and unleashes her step-by-step guide to putting things in order. Everything from de-cluttering your life and mind, to planning your time and prepping for the day ahead. Awesome stuff!
We also loved Chapter 11 Be a leader – which gives us an insight into Lorraine’s leadership journey. An honest account of the lessons she has learned along the way and the importance she places on remarkable leadership in business. Chapter 16 titled ‘Smash stress’ does more than simply name a few of the 1000’s strategies we have heard before. Instead, Lorraine breaks it all down and shares what has worked for her and the techniques she uses to relax and be more mindful in both her business and personal life.
Nugget of gold:
