A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Lifeby Bethenny Frankel
Synopses & Reviews
The New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish, Bethenny Frankel takes us on an empowering journey to A PLACE OF YES
BETHENNY FRANKEL’S no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally bestselling author and the star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Ever After. Now Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A Place of Yes.” Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and lifelong money struggles. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive, including:
FIND YOUR TRUTH: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else.
ACT ON IT: You don’t have to have a master plan. But unless you do something, you’ve done nothing.
EVERYTHING’S YOUR BUSINESS: Treat every job, person, and experience as if it could lead to your next big opportunity.
OWN IT: If you do it, say it, think it—then own it. Stand up for yourself and fully acknowledge who you really are.
Each rule is illustrated with compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure Bethenny. It’s easy to say no, to say “I can’t,” to expect the worst, and to doubt yourself. But your life can be better than “not bad” or “good enough.” It can be amazing. And by putting Bethenny’s rules together, you can use them to be more successful, more fulfilled, healthier, and happier than ever before.
In her New York Times bestseller, now in paperback, reality television star Bethenny Frankel shares common sense rules for success and happiness.
Bethenny Frankel’s no-nonsense personality won over viewers and made her a breakout star of the Real Housewives of New York City and a nationally bestselling author. Now Bethenny, who previously has focused her advice on diet and nutrition, opens up and discusses how “noise” impacted many other important aspects of her life—and the lessons she learned to overcome it.
Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and significant issues with money. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive including: Know What You Want; The Cream Rises to the Top; Don’t Wear Your Story; and Go for Yours. These rules helped Bethenny turn her life around and attain the success and happiness she enjoys today. In A Place of Yes, readers will learn to apply the rules to their own lives as they deal with relationships, careers, and money—the Bethenny Frankel way.
