book review: Womentality: by Erin Wildermuth

I don’t think you all understand how damn happy I was when I received this book in the mail, can you say ecstatic? I read about it online and had the chance of signing up and requesting an ARC for the book; and just as the fates would have it, I got it. Lately I have been getting a lot of ARCs in the mail, so hopefully I will have more content coming up soon.

This book isn’t a how-to-guide or a this is what worked for me, so maybe it will work for you type of book. Each woman in this book has a different, yet similar experience about their journey to working independently from home. They express their concerns, the pros, and the cons. The one common denominator they all had was in the advice that they shared. The work will be hard, the results won’t come right away, but it’s all worth it in the end.

This book is a list of testimonials from a few women who have had success in leaving their 9-5s behind to pursue a bigger purpose. We all want to leave an impact on this world and we all want to make a name for ourselves. These women are mothers, daughters, friends, and leaders; who come from all walks of life, but with similar stories and passions. So far this book has been a fantastic read.

The only issue I had was the fact that the book isn’t completely organized. These women all come from different places in the world and have had different experiences. The only thing that truly connects them together is the fact that they all left work to work independently. The essays of these women felt rushed, to me.

While I loved reading each of their stories; I would have loved it more if it was one woman sharing her story. One woman reliving the experience all over again so we (the readers) can visualize and understand the transition between working for someone else and working for yourself.

The book is set to be released in October of this year and I received this copy for free in exchange for an honest review.
