Design Your Daring Life Workbook: Achieve Confidence, Success, and the Courage to Have It All! is a self-help book for teens or young adult women. Chapters included are Dare to Dream Big, Dare to be Confident, Dare to Build Successful Relationships, Dare to be Fearless, and Dare to Have It All. Author Connie M. Leach, Ed.D. is a former teacher and wrote the book to help young women design a roadmap for their lives. Each section begins and ends with a quiz. Leach encourages readers to take both quizzes so they can see their progress. There is also a summary of key points and the end of each section. Leach uses numerous examples of women who have used her advice to improve their lives. There are also quotations from successful people, such as actresses, singers, and authors.
This book is terrific. I wish I had read or, more accurately, experienced a book like this one when I was a late teenager. Author Connie M. Leach, Ed.D. provides a comprehensive blueprint to be used to change young women’s lives for the better. They’ll find out who they are, what motivates them, and how they can change. Her target audience should go beyond simply reading the book and thoughtfully answering the questions. If they do, they’ll find their lives improved as they learn lessons that will stay with them the rest of their lives. Using this book as intended will be hard work, but that’s one of its most valuable features. I highly recommend Design Your Daring Life Workbook: Achieve Confidence, Success, and the Courage to Have It All! Even though I’m not a young woman, I found the information inspiring, informative, and invaluable.
