From Best Kept Secret To Success In Life, Love & Business by Jo Dibblee is a motivational, part-memoir guide to finding one’s true self and path to personal success and happiness. Author Jo Dibblee starts off with a brief introduction and the meaning of the word “frock” is used in this context. Frocking or shedding our false self to truly find ourselves and who we are is the basis of Jo’s coaching and success techniques. Having come from a dysfunctional family and a difficult childhood that included poverty, neglect, and sexual abuse, Jo’s story is inspiring. The book is broken down into several chapters and each one contains a mix of Jo’s background and life story, along with lessons learned along the way and how to apply them in everyday life. This is a short but inspiring read.
From Best Kept Secret To Success In Life, Love & Business by Jo Dibblee is a motivational read and is part-autobiographical. Indeed, this personal touch is what makes the book authentic and real. Her tips and life lessons learnt are simple and straightforward. The writing is direct and engaging and I truly felt as if the author was talking directly to me. I especially liked the section about the common “frocks,” including dealing with feelings of unworthiness that lead to living a life of conformity at the expense of personal happiness. All in all, this is an inspiring read and one I would recommend.
