I have to admit. Reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People took me a lot longer than I expected. Somewhere between the beginning and the end I took a pause to venture into another book, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t think The 7 Habits was a book worth finishing.

While reading The 7 Habits, it reminded me a lot of a book I previously read, How to Win Friends and Influence People. Although it’s not exactly the same, the basic idea of sharing principles and concepts to become a better person for yourself and those around you are the same. The 7 Habits, as you might have already guessed, revolves around 7 different habits. All unique and different from one another, but somehow they are all linked and related, one habit following another until it forms a sort of never-ending cycle.

The 7 Habits is written by Stephen R. Covey and has been impacting people for over 2 decades. The topics covered in the book are those that can be applied to anyone’s life, regardless of your field of work, social status, race or gender. It’s quite a lengthy book and covers a ton of information but I’ll do my best at reviewing and summarizing the contents of the book below.

Read N Review: #girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

LaCasabloga-#Girlboss

I am sure you have seen this book cover at least once before. When I first came across #girlboss during a trip to Barnes and Noble, I had heard the buzz about it, but I didn’t know anything about Sophia Amoruso and I had never heard of Nasty Gal, so I was skeptical about spending my $15 on it, haha. I am a big fan of self-help books and after seeing JennIm give a raving review about it on her YouTube channel, I decided I ought to give it a second look. Coincidentally, it was gifted to me this past Christmas and I finally got around to finishing it last month.
