About the Author
Paula Grieco is a writer and entrepreneur. Liz McHutcheon is an artist and small business coach. Together they founded, What's Your Brave (www.whatsyourbrave.com), a writing and media project dedicated to supporting teen girls in being brave, dreaming big, and taking positive bold action. The founders started the project because of the pervasive disconnect between the portrayal of teen girls in the media and what they observed in the lives of the extraordinary young women they knew. They decided to go to the real adolescent experts – the teen girls themselves — to understand the true state of girlhood. After significant research and over 100 interviews with teen girls from diverse backgrounds and circumstances what they discovered was even better than expected — an abundance of brave young women who wanted to impact the world in extraordinary ways and share lessons for all on being brave, dreaming big, and taking bold action.

I definitely would recommend this book!
I liked the format - Daily guide is informative, motivational, and inspirational...
Great book for teenage girls and young women. They deserve to take time for their dreams...
Their approach of 5 minutes a day, keeping it simple and entertaining makes the process fun and very practical. The authors take the reader step by step through the various phases to successfully understand and grasp their dreams.
Difficult steps including taking action, and stepping out of one's comport zone are covered using examples, quotes, advice, and resources young woman and teens can relate to; which I believe, will make this book a great success.
So many books addressing this topic espouse time consuming and often complicated steps which can make it difficult for readers to keep engaged. The authors make this book very accessible and practical. I think many will look back on this book as a key resource on their quest toward a happy and satisfying life.
That's why I really love the concept of this book. Parents and kids are stretched for time, so the idea of doing something for five minutes a day--the same way we take 45 minutes a day to work out or 10 minutes a day to shower--is accessible and approachable. I like that the book has both concrete and specific tasks as well as those that are a little bit more creative. It really speaks to different personality types. And it provides enough exercises that it allows you to get into a habit of reflection, discussion, etc. on a regular basis.
Whether you follow the book step by step or simply read through it to get ideas and discussion points, it's a great tool for working with your daughter or the teen/tween girl you love and helping her to think about how she can put herself on a path to accomplish and achieve her dreams in the future. It's so easy for us to get caught up in the day-to-day and it's great to take five minutes out to plan our path forward.
