Sincero (Don't Sleep With Your Drummer) brings a fun, feminine verve to now well-tread self-help tropes
The tone is far more feisty than academic, and there's humor on every page, all of which is exactly what her intended audience most needs"
Publishers Weekly online
If touchy-feely self-help tomes make you feel, shall we say, less than inspired, this no-nonsense manifesto to awesomeness might be just what you're looking for. Filled with blunt and sassy advice, do-it-yourself exercises in personal transformation, and a whole lot of hilarity, You Are a Badass will silence your inner critic, and help you build a life worthy of the kind of Facebook news feed that others envy. Take a day off from looking for your inner goddess, and spending some time cultivating your outer badass instead.”
I adore Jen's realistic and funny take on all matters of living an awesome life. She has such a gift for writing in a very digestible way that will appeal to everyone. If you're looking for purple unicorns and rainbows you won't find them here, what you will find are practical and easy ways to connect with your inner badass and change your life.”

. Reading this book was like talking to a best friend the one that will tell you like it is no matter the circumstances and that forces you to think outside the box.”

Top Customer Reviews
1. Self limiting beliefs that you formed from early negative experiences hold you back from doing what you would most love.
2. Those same beliefs are likely creating self-criticism, anxiety and depression in you, which also holds you back.
3. Learning to love yourself (by practicing doing loving things and speaking to yourself kindly and compassionately) will eventually shift your beliefs. You can speed up this process with repetition (mantras, affirmations, etc.).
4. If all the spiritual, woo-woo talk about frequencies and vibrations makes you roll your eyes, no worries. It is your own energy that creates the relationships, experiences and perceptions you have. You know this from experience. When you are having a great day, the world looks brighter. People seem friendlier (because they are responding to your warmth). When your day is sucking, everyone becomes a pain in the butt.
5. Staying in a loving space with yourself requires ongoing maintenance and support. You will do better if you limit contact with people who make you feel bad or doubt yourself and increase contact with those you make you feel stronger and happier.

The language used in the book is direct and often coarse, but the message goes directly to the heart and is highly motivating.
Some parts made me laugh, some parts ticked me off, and all of it made me look at my life with a renewed perspective.
If you've read a lot of self-help literature, you won't find much in this book that you haven't heard before, but Sincero has such a funny, powerful, and personal writing voice that it will make you remember that you are, deep down, a total badass!
None of what Sincero says is new or groundbreaking. In fact, much of it is attributable to the "wisdom of the ages" and derived earlier works in self help and self improvement.
What sets this book apart is that it is packaged in a user-friendly format and written in incredibly engaging language. Sincero's passion for making you more passionate drips off every page.
Trying to change your life while living it is akin to working on a car as you are driving it down the road. Most folks don't have much bandwidth for transition.
Fortunately, Sincero makes it easy. This is a quick read packed with concrete steps you can take to make improvements to your quality of life the minute you read the page.
I've read it twice, and given copies of it to at least ten friends.
For those interested in changing their lives, this is a good use of twelve bucks.
