3. Redesign the Reality of Your Finances: Understand the Why to Change the How of Your Spending by Marc Barlow

This book combines so many frameworks, thought processes, and topics that I absolutely adore.

For example, Marc says,

REALITY CHANGES. Within a second or over the course of time, your reality can change. INFINITE POSSIBILITIES. Reality only exists moment by moment. As such, you have infinite possibilities waiting to be discovered, awakened, and actualized. ONE CONSTANT. The only constant of your infinite possibilities is you. You hold the power to redesign your reality. How many people have consciously or subconsciously accepted their current financial reality as reality? Not thinking, believing, or understanding a different reality can and does exist. A reality waiting to be discovered, awakened, and actualized.

I am personally obsessed with all of these concepts. We create our own realities. We have the power to change our systems, no matter what we were “taught” to do or what other people tell us is what we “ought” to do.

If you want to redefine your financial reality, run to pick this one up!!

4. Defining You: How To Profile Yourself and Unlock Your Full Potential by Fiona Murden

I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book yet, however, I was immediately intrigued by the book description:

Have you ever wondered what a profiling session would tell you about yourself?

Fiona Murden helps some of the most successful people in the world to understand their behavior and improve their performance. Here she guides you through the professional profiling assessment process in private, to help you discover your strengths, understand what really drives you and learn which environments will help you to excel.

Step by step you will build your unique personal profile. Take a psychometric test, run a 360 assessment, draw up your early years timeline and enjoy some valuable self-reflection. Fiona then expertly – and sensitively – coaches you through interpreting your results and taking your next steps to fulfill your potential.

Our behavior is at the core of what we do. This is your ultimate self-awareness toolkit to help you understand both your own and other’s behavior and to positively influence it. Along the way you may even start to sleep better, think more clearly and have good moods more often.

Defining You opens a window into the elite process of psychological profiling and presents a clear path to improving your effectiveness with immediate actions and tangible tips.

I certainly haven’t had the chance to be profiled in this way. Self awareness is a very powerful tool, and one we rely on frequently here at G20! I’m very curious about this one.

7. In This Together: How Successful Women Support Each Other in Work and Life by Nancy D O’Reilly

Women supporting women is the key to all of us reaching success. This book provides actionable advice from 40 women across a variety of industries to encourage us all to work together:

Women worldwide are breaking their silence—coming forward against the men that have oppressed and abused them in the #MeToo movement. It’s an exciting, liberating moment time of female empowerment—but now we have to relearn how to connect with each other.

Instead of supporting each other through the challenges of a traditionally male-dominated working world, millions of women have experienced the polar opposite. Studies show that 30% of workplace bullies are female—employing tactics such as cyber bullying, verbal attacks, gossiping, and shunning to use against each other—and many women have garnered “mean girl” reputations as competitive and unsupportive in the workplace.

Inside the galvanizing In This Together, 40 successful and eminent women from a wide range of fields show us how much we can achieve if we embrace our collective power and strength, instead of competing against each other—such as learning new skills to advance in our careers and ultimately earn more money, working to dramatically increase the number of women in leadership positions, and even recruiting men to take up workplace equality as their own impassioned cause.

Empowering, stirring, and actionable, In This Together is an indispensable addition to every modern woman’s arsenal in our continued fight for the opportunities we deserve.

We’re passionate about self-care here at GenTwenty, and more importantly, passionate about helping you define what that means for yourself.

I’ll let this book explain itself:

It’s time to be selfish about our self-care and do things we actually want to do. Self (Don’t) Care isn’t anti-you—it’s pro-doing what you damn well please to feel good and enjoy life, rather than being told what’s right for you. So put up your feet, pick up a pint, and browse through these 150+ suggestions for letting loose—it’s the only self-care guide we all actually need.
