Now don’t get me wrong, if you’ve not bought into Hollis yet, and this is your first read by her...it will be a great read. But for True devotees like myself, it fell a little flat. There were too many of the same examples, same stories, same topics and honestly it didn’t feel any different; felt more like she took favored parts of both her other books and wrote a shorter version - think cliff notes.
Sure there were a few good laughs, but most were from stories I’d already heard. I was truly expecting more about grief, divorce, truly hard things since that’s the period of her life she’s currently in - and so are most of us during these trying times. I needed it to be more raw, especially with such a bold title. It felt to me this was a rush to keep her image and brand alive admits the online criticisms, divorce, and other life events
Though this book wasn’t my favorite, I will continue to support her and her books. Everyone has moments that just don’t come out as planned. I still will look forward to see where life takes her and to see what’s next , but for now I won’t be rereading this like I had GWYF and GSA
*was given early access to this book thanks to the publisher -not a paid review-*
While I know it’s not directly about divorce the advice about getting back up again, processing hard stuff still feel contrived. I miss the writing style and the “life coach” style of the author I believed in and related to from her first books.
Not for me.
*Rachel states that your children should never ever see you upset or in any kind of negative emotional state. I completely disagree with this for many reasons, but the main one being this- our kids NEED to see and understand hurt and troubled times. Shielding them from seeing you struggle is only going to have a negative impact . I will always be real with my kids because life is messy, and it isn’t always happy times and smiles. I am a strong mother but just as easily can fall apart when bad things happen and your children should see that!
*No mention of her soon to be ex husband in the acknowledgments. I know, they’re getting divorced so why would she? Because he helped her create the 3 beautiful children they were blessed with. Because he was her biggest supporter through her entrepreneurial journey ! Because he was with her when they went through the adoption process. It just saddens me that he didn’t get a mention, especially since she shared so many stories about Dave in the book!
This books is really just the same old stories, same old thoughts, and honestly feels just off.
In the book, she gives some really potentially harmful advice to her large following. She tells parents to NEVER show their emotions to their children EVER. As a psychologist I’m SO mad because this is her own baggage. Not an opinion she should be given others.
I’ve thought about this for days and can’t even read the last chapter. This isn’t based on research this is based on just that her OPINION of her own past trauma and so harmful. As trained in this field, you are a parent have permission to feel AND your children SHOULD see this. Feelings. Are. Okay. And. Good. For. Us.
Pros. There’s some good laughs. Some funny stories.

At least that was my experience of it.
It's a good read! I've lost both my parents by the time I was 25 so grief is very present in my life and is a focal point for me. I feel like if someone hasn't been through some kind of trauma or grief, they may not get as much out of this book as I personally did. But there are still a lot of good one quotes, transferrable advice and her chapter on finances is helpful and important for people to read.👌
I've seen others say a handful of her stories and advice within this book are the same as we've heard from coaching, GWYF, GSA and Rise events. But it was those very stories and that same advice that got me through my own very hard, dark season of life after I had lost my mother. I can totally understand why you'd be finding those written within the pages of this book. Those very things changed the trajectory of my grief journey in the early days for the better.
Overall it was a good read. I'm a grief nerd, given my life experiences, so I truly enjoyed it and felt it spoke to me various times over the course of the book. It was great to see her put words to what felt like my experiences and feelings into well articulated statements. Sometimes I don't know how or what to say and she did just that. I will for sure be recommending this book/purchasing this book for some people in my life whom I feel are struggling with their own traumas and griefs and need to hear what she has to say.
