So far, the SMC Book Club has read books that covered some of our favorite topics- money, career, lifestyle, and female empowerment. Well, ladies, our next book selection is slated to give us all of that. Since the recent relaunch of the SMC Book Club, I wanted to bring back a book that may be familiar to some of my longtime readers. This month’s She Makes Cents Book Club selection is from author and master life coach, Cara Alwill Leyba. Cara is known for encouraging women to create a ”Champagne Life” that entails living effervescently, celebrating themselves every day, and making their happiness a priority. Through loving guidance, support, and an expert perspective, Cara empowers women to challenge their fears and create a lifestyle and career that feels authentic, vibrant, and inspiring. She sounds like #shemakescents, right?

The Girl Code
Every time I take a trip to my favorite bookstore, I come across this book,Girl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur and I tell myself that I will add it to the SMC book club reading list. Well, that time is now! This book has a rating of 5/5 on Good Reads and I can’t wait to dive in. You may be thinking to yourself, “I’m not an entrepreneur” but I am confident that the information and inspiration from this book can apply to all women at every stage of their careers.
How Our Book Club Works
This virtual book club currently “meets” weekly for mini book chats in the SMC Book Club group on Facebook. A book will be selected every other month and then announced before the start of the month to give participants time to order the book from the >SMC online bookstore, borrow from the library, or download >here. Selections for the books come from a mix of editor and reader suggestions. For reader suggestions, we ask that selections embrace powerful women, business cents, fictional favorites, and anything that informs and inspires us. As you read the book, please leave your questions for the book club in the comment section below. We will begin the book on March 1st (our Blogversary) and discussions will follow on Instagram and our Facebook group.
Inspiration comes from many places. In my case, the inspiration for our next book club choice came from an Instagram story where another influencer, @theemmaroseagency, shared a screenshot of a page from a book she was reading. After reading the page for myself, I had to find out more information about that book that appeared to encompass money, career, and lifestyle from a woman’s point of view. This month’s She Makes Cents Book Club selection is from author and founder of the small business empowerment-coaching firm, Kachelle Kelly. Kelly coaches career-driven women to activate their hustle and their faith by providing innovative strategies to achieve authentic success and happiness in one’s business and life and I invite you to join the SMCmoneytribe as we dive into her book, Boss Women Pray: 31 Prayer to Increase Your Success & Spirit: The Comprehensive Prayer Guide for Entrepreneurs & Women in Business .

How Our Book Club Works
We select a new book from a mix of editor and reader’s suggestions. For reader suggestions, we ask that selections embrace powerful women, business “cents”, fictional favorites, and anything that informs and inspires us. We then announce that selection before the start of the month to give you time to opt in and go get the book. Since the paper copy is just about sold out everywhere, you can order a digital copy here. As you read the book, please leave your questions or comments for the book club in the comment section below. We will begin discussions for this book on November 1st on Instagram and our Facebook group.
Let’s be real. The title of the shemakescents.com January book selection got your attention, didn’t it? Well, it certainly caught mine when I first heard about Sara Knight’s latest book, The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck. Reason number one is well….obvious, but the second reason…I literally laughed out loud that the title is the play on the uber-popular book by Marie Kondo, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Apparently, we as a people are in serious need of a life-changing magical moment.
Here is the Overview:
Are you stressed out, overbooked, and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself? It’s time to stop giving a f*ck.
This brilliant, hilarious, and practical parody of Marie Kondo’s bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt–and give your f*cks instead to people and things that make you happy.
The easy-to-use, two-step NotSorry Method for mental decluttering will help you unleash the power of not giving a f*ck about:
- Family Drama
- Having a “bikini body”
- Co-workers’ opinions, pets, and children
- And other bullsh*t!
And it will free you to spend your time, energy, and money on the things that really matter. So what are you waiting for? Stop giving a f*ck and start living your best life today!
