Yay! Book number two for 2017 is officially completed . I was excited to get a copy of the beautiful Claire Sulmers book entitled The Bomb Life: My Brand. My Terms.
I was entrigued to learn her journey and see how she became the queen she is today! I’m sure most social media regulars are either huge fans of Fashion Bomb Daily or have at least heard of the site. This is Claire Summers’ site. Now knowing what it took to create this empire is pretty mind blowing!
The most influential chapter for me of The Bomb Life was chapter six! This chapter was entitled the Business of Blogging and it was an eye opener.
Of course, I won’t ruin anything for those that are interested in grabbing this book, but I totally want to share my takeaways from it.
- At any given point in time, be prepared to shine!
- Rejection is a part of life! Sometimes I will hear no more than yes but realize that it only takes one yes to make something happen!
- Create good content that your niche wants to hear about.
- Never, ever sell myself or my platform short
- Network, network, and network some more.
- Keep introducing yourself until they have reasons to remember ME/AKCESS!
I really enjoyed every page of this book. Claire was very open about her struggles and her daily victories that made her who she has become! Fashion Bomb is an amazing brand and it gives such encouragement to me to continue building and working at my dreams!
If you recall, one of my New Year resolutions was to indulge in more books! Based on my schedule I set the “lofty” goal of one book a month!
So let’s jump right into my first read of January:
I was so thrilled to finally get my hands on this amazing gem by THE Karen Civil entitled Be You & Live Civil. (Sounds like something that’s pretty simple and easy to do right?) Through her social media accounts, you would think that she’s been that way her entire life. She always hosts the most lavish events with the most stylish outfits. But in reading this book, I have been able to see that she is indeed human. She shared her many adversities. She shared how she was able to overcome them. Step by step, she showed readers how she became the head strong women we see.
I don’t want to ruin anything for those that are interested in reading this book, so I will not spill too many of the beans here. I will, however, say that this is absolutely a great read for men and women, alike, that are aiming to find their passion. Everyone has been issued a gift, you just have to discover what it is. You have to:
- Ask for guidance
- Discover your gift
- Build on it
- Conquer your dreams
I was able to to gain knowledge from Be You & Live Civil that can be applied to life! Of course I want to share with you guys what I learned. Here are a few takeaways…
- Believe in myself & brand the same way I believe in GOD
- ALWAYS progress and try my hardest to not regress
- NEVER put a limit on my success
I hope that this inspires you to want to be the best version of you! This book absolutely provoked my soul. It had me yearning for more. It ignited my passion for AKCESS & its followers. So, let’s make things shake and allow our brands to SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!!
