Review

“QuickieChick is like the cool, wise big sister you always wanted...in a book. She knows exactly what you need to know and tells it to you straight, all the while cheering you on and reminding you that you are also one really cool, wise chick.” ―Christine Hassler, author of 20-Something, 20-Everything and 20 Something Manifesto

“Laurel's quickie solutions for whatever life throws your way are more than helpful--they scream for immediate inspiration and implementation! Laurel House has done us all a huge favor by sharing her wisdom, experience, and humor with quickie solutions that only a young-hearted, but clever old soul could do.” ―Nancy Spears, CEO/founder of genConnect.com and author of Buddha 9 to 5

QuickieChick is filled with need-to-know insight on renting, roommates, saving money, and spending within your means but feeling like you're living beyond them. Chicks will use this book as a cheat sheet to life. Dudes should use this book as a cheat sheet to chicks.” ―Josh Altman, from Bravo's Million Dollar Listing

“Life's coveted cheat sheet, QuickieChick offers immediately gratifying, valuable nuggets of wisdom with actionable tips to find your passion, define your dreams, and be true to yourself…while remembering to have lots of fun along the way!” ―Sean Aiken, author of The One-Week Job Project

“We all know accessories are some of the best statement-makers when it comes to expressing your uniqueness...but one can not live on bling alone. QuickieChick teaches the basics on how to develop your own personal style, while adding that 'GODDAMN!' factor you need to stand out in a crowd.” ―Brian Burkhardt, winner of Lifetime's Project Accessory

I love this book! I originally bought this book for my daughter who is in College but after reading it, I decided to buy my own (and for my sister....we are both in our 50's). I love all the helpful everyday ideas from quick exercise tips when I don't have time for a full workout...who can tell I'm exercising while I am cooking dinner, or sitting on a chair in the office (lol), her helpful ideas from how to eat healthy, how to be the perfect hostess and how to stay on a budget while we can still spoil ourselves. I also like the fact that it's a book that I don't have to read from the beginning but can go from chapter to chapter until I find what I'm looking for. She has really put so much advice into this book that I truly believe it is a great for anyone who is ready to go out on their own or to those of us who have families and careers who just need helpful hints and positive motivation to keep our days less hectic.

I have not only read and loved QuickieChick's Cheat Sheet, but have gifted the book to girlfriends who have raved about it as well!

Loaded with easy and affordable "quickies" and tips on everything from exercising to eating healthy to fashion and beauty to finances and relationships, I'm so grateful that Laurel House is bringing us all "in the know".

Hope to see more from her down the line, especially a piece targeting women in their 30's (my demo).

This book isn't just for College kids, tad harsh to rate it a one. I'm 31 and loved reading this and it's very insightful for people all ages. It's a great book filled with helpful tips on many areas of life. I do carry it with me in my bag everywhere and read the bits I find I need work on. I hope for a second one soonnnnn xoxo

I recently graduated from college and I received this book as a gift a few months prior to graduation. I did not know, how little I knew before reading this!

This book brings up so many points that we just never have the time to think about during college, about post college life. It made a lot of the dynamics about being a new "grownup" that could have been a HUGE surprise (and that I've seen BE a huge surprise for many of my friends recently) MUCH easier to handle.

This book felt like my little best friend while making the transition into post-college life! Definitely turned to it amidst a melt down or two!

I didn't really care for this book-it was written for a completly different age group than mine. It had way too many pages where your supposed to 'write' your own ideas-if I wanted a diary, I would have bought one!
