You Are a Badass

You Are a Badass

by Jen Sincero


One good thing that often comes from aging is that, with each year, we start to care less about what people think. However, the problem with learning this lesson later in life is that it might not leave you with the time to achieve your dream, whatever that may be. If you're young and worried about what other people think, the sooner you learn not to, the better.

Jen Sincero is here to rebel against the monotony of life. She worked for a record label, then started a rock band, failed, and wrote a book about it, before ultimately going on to coach people about improving their lives. You Are a Badass is the culmination of several years of helping people transform their lives from loser to happy-go-lucky, and it comes packed with fun stories and valuable lessons.
