Not For Me
Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2017
Girl Code was not for me. As Cara herself stated, you have to find a Coach that meshes with you and your style and I am not about champagne, stilettos, sparkles and pink stuff... and I am not about the edginess that Cara exudes. That being said I am not dismissing her writing style nor message, it just didn't appeal to me. Many of the examples of women entrepreneurs didn't appeal to me because they were not average women like me--they were married to professional athletes, they were on reality TV shows, they were rock stars, etc. They had an advantage starting their business'; if they failed it wasn't about losing their home or not being able to feed their kids. And I do not mean to discredit their efforts, sacrifices, nor their risk--I just feel it is in a completely different realm than the average woman trying to start and run a business. At the end of each chapter Cara asked what was the biggest take away from the chapter and I will say that it was the topic of fear--fear not being a thing, rather an emotion; facing fear; doing in spite of fear--was very valuable to me. I already know that fear is what is holding me back, but hearing others put fear, and facing fear, into other terms helped me see and understand it better.
