The Girls’ Guide to Accomplishing Just About Anything
Teen girls have a lot on their plates. Overscheduled and overburdened, achieving goals can be a challenge when procrastination, crappy thinking, and other obstacles get in the way. In Doable, readers get to know themselves in a realistic way, leading them to blaze their own trail and turn a to-do list into concrete accomplishments, whatever those accomplishments may be.
In Doable: The Girls’ Guide to Accomplishing Just About Anything, teen empowerment author, expert, and life coach Debbie Reber offers a simple, accessible approach to tackling any goal—big, small, mundane, or world-changing—by addressing these obstacles and offering a step-by-step method girls can easily adapt to whatever it is they’re looking to do.
I love this book! Life can be overwhelming at any age, but Doable provides a positive and encouraging way forward. Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is merely a self-help book. It’s a make-it-happen, get-it-done, and feel great about tomorrow book.Chris Guillebeau
