Professional Troublemaker, The Fear-Fighter Manual
By Luvvie Ajayi Jones
This book came across my desk via two of my favorite people: Elizabeth Gilbert and Marie Forleo.
And when two people who I admire so much are saying they are going to interview Luvvie or have interviewed her on Marie TV; my attention is captured. Marie's segment is a funny engaging one with Luvvie about her new book. And Elizabeth Gilbert's is coming up on April 8th on Instragram.
I got the book out of our local library. What a stroke of luck! And I read the whole book. Now I'll let you know a little secret: reading a whole book is a big deal for me. It's not that I can't read; though I have a bit of dyslexia that causes the letters to look a little backwards and switched and makes reading a bigger project for me. I really enjoy audio books and spoken word. This book is not there yet. And I read it, as I rested on the couch, iced my broken wrist--more about that next week--and took time to chill.
Friends, chilling in not my most popular mode of operation--I'd rather be dancing, hiking a trail, making art in my studio, writing, hanging with friends and family--you get the picture. So when I'm reading, my body gets wiggly. Deep breath and read on.
Here are a few reasons you may want to read this book: find out more about this amazing human Luvvie Ajayi Jones, her life as a Nigerian born human who landed in the USA at 9 years old. She shares about her amazing grandmother; her challenges: doing a Ted talk and how to go for the biggest passions of your life. She is confident, loud, joyful, and a good troublemaker!
