This is quite an unorthodox, straight to the point no bullshit guide to life and business by Kelly Cutrone. I’ve seen a few glimpses of her in videos online, where she is portrayed as Queen Biatch and I wasn’t sure what kind of person she is. I’ve never really contemplated on it. So I was quite surprised when I picked up this book. Happily so.
I discovered a person, a soul - behind the book that seems like a loving and compassionate and honest person. The kind of person you want to be friends with or actually work for, someone who really cares about the dedication you bring to the table at work and can push you in the right direction.
Kelly also proves that just because you evolve and educate yourself spiritually, you can still be assertive and tell people to go fuck themselves if the situation requires. A compassionate and loving person need not to be a doormat – which is a great point raised by Kelly.
This is a great, quick read, if you want a new fresh perspective outside the mold of what is in mainstream media portrayed as the norm – what you should do with your life. A comforting book with advice on how to pursue your passion as a career, deal with motherhood while single and how to choose the right people for YOU to hang out with.
There where two other aspects of this book which I really liked. One of them was the topic of religion – you don’t have to choose one, you can choose parts of all religions which resonates with you and build your own. The second thing I want to mention is that Kelly points out that instead of investing a lot of energy in trying to fit into a mold, put the energy towards realizing your dreams and letting yourself blossom. All your points of differentiation may just turn out to be your best assets in building your own personal brand and bring you success.
Kelly also shares, how she lost everything, but then got back on track with her life, and built a business from nothing – again. So fabulously and dazzlingly inspiring. If that’s not a motivating and inspirational read to enrich your own life and take some strength from, then I don’t know what is! Kudos!
The book is available on Amazon and Apple iBooks if you fancy yourself a closer look.
