Synopsis

Have you ever dove into a self-help book and you come out feeling like they handed you a situation that already had a rosy outcome before they finished describing it? Have you been left feeling like, "That's great, but what about real life?"

This book is the one you've been waiting for. I dive into the hard situations in life: cancer, relationships, divorce, finance, and toxic job. I point out the signs to look for to keep yourself out of certain situations, and give you strong direction to fight through the toughest battles of your life. This isn't about sunshine and roses; it's about the ugly that comes with life's tough events and how you can work through them without losing yourself in the process.

Jessi is writing this book with a lot of life experience to pull from. She is a survivor of cancer, assault, narcissistic relationships, mental and emotional abuse, car accidents, draining jobs, and failed businesses.

  • "Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder" by Reshma Saujani, Published by Currency 2019 - Both books embrace the idea of overcoming the idea of perfection, pushing past well-meaning people, and unapologetically finding what makes us happy. My book is different because it's not just geared toward women. It's geared toward anyone who has, or is, facing a life struggle.
  • “Didn't See That Coming” by Rachel Hollis, Published by Harper Collins 2020 - These books both share personal experiences that unfiltered honestly to help readers seize and push through life's difficult moments. My book is different because I'm not just throwing sad stories down to make the reader sad. Instead, I'm using what I've learned to encourage and empower the reader.
  • "To Love and Let Go: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Gratitude" by Rachel Brathen, Published by Gallery Books 2019 - Both books share a raw look into the struggles of every day life that are masked by the face one puts on for everyone else. My book is different because my story goes beyond the narrative and gives readers the tools and lessons I learned through each event.

Audience

This book is for the survivor, those who are struggling, and those who aren't sure where to go after a major life event.
