In fact the format is brilliantly designed with lots of useful charts, prompts, and easy to implement tips and exercises to go along with the author’s 8 step approach to making anything doable.
And don’t be fooled by the title because Doable is NOT just for teen girls! I’ve shared some of the chapters and stories with my 12 yr-old son and I’ve used some of the strategies outlined here with my own personal + entrepreneurial goals.
As a woman who loves personal story + real life examples I was immediately drawn in by the inspiring teen girl stories that are shared throughout. Deborah did an incredible job of making sure there are a wide variety of goals outlined that are sure to appeal to many different personalities, passions and interests. (ex: founding a non-profit, filing out a college application, writing a fashion blog, competing in sports, getting homework done, balancing it all etc) She also did a fantastic job of integrating pop culture references (Helllo! What teen doesn’t love that?!) and sites inspiring organizations worth checking out later.
My favorite and most helpful step in the Doable process is Step 3 : To defend against obstacles. In this section the most common obstacles we face while reaching our goals (procrastination, overwhelm, distraction, not enough time, lack of information and lack of confidence) are highlighted and addressed with a guide to creating a defense strategy. AWESOME RESOURCE!
I was so excited to finally get my hands on a free review copy of Doable from the author! Thank you Debbie! And my hard copy just arrived in the mail today! Eeek! I’m thrilled because it’s not a one time read kinda thing where you get what you need and you’re done. It’s the kind of book you’ll want to dog ear or bookmark and go back to as you keep making new goals + chasing your dreams.
As you might have guessed I personally know Debbie and I’ve honestly never met anyone that knows how to set a goal + make a plan + and go after it like she does. Seriously this girls got skills! (I promise she didn’t ask me to say any of this:)) And the SUPER BONUS …she has a huge heart to go with her gigantic go-get ‘em personality and she genuinely wants to help you + your teen accomplish your goals as well.
She mentioned recently that she wrote this book with one goal in mind : “To help as many girls as possible as they build fulfilling, inspired lives for themselves.” And I love that about her and I think she nailed it.
*After you grab a copy for yourself and all the teen girls in your life make sure you check out Debbie’s website for all the amazing resources that she put together to complement this book. (Task Planner, Downloadable Workbook, The Doable life hacking guide and more!) They’re all FREE!

My favourite chapter was advice targeted at different Doable Styles. There are so many tests out there to confirm what you do well and what you don't do well. But they often fall short of advice on how to actually use your strengths... as if optimizing strengths just followed right on from hearing confirmation of what you'd already known! It looks at a person's positives and uses them to support what that person might be ignoring.
Though my copy of this book is digital... this chapter's profiling has been printed out, is a sea of green from my highlighting pen and will be used regularly with my students. They love profiling themselves, and the tips are EXCELLENT. I've not seen this material handled as well anywhere else.
Recognition of Mid-Goal Blues (so true!)
Gloriously simple to read and employ. The book builds on itself, consolidating what you've learned in concise language and visually attractive breaks. Inspiring examples of teenage entrepreneurs the author has worked with. Takes the best ideas from many experts as well as the author and pulls them together in language teenagers can relate to.
Also great read together and as discussion opener for me and my tween.
Its one thing to believe you can do anything, another to be given the tools and skills to know how to in a positive way - so far a great book to guide my young one in developing her own 'how'.
