Fearless is a remarkable read about how drive and perseverance will help you achieve your goals even when they may feel like a goal that will never be attainable. Rebecca Minkoff discusses her trials and tribulations in her life and career that shaped her into the boss she is today!
Rebecca Minkoff has been one of my favorite designers for some time now. I still have my very first M.A.C. crossbody bag and it reminds me of the journey I have been through over the years. It was so exciting and encouraging to read about Rebecca's journey as a designer and entrepreneur. She shares her life from the time she realized that she wanted to design clothes to the now. She had a dream to make it in NYC and she did that and now she is sharing some of her wisdom and tips to lead a life in which we pursue our dreams without letting our fears hold us back.
She gives some sound advice with her lessons. Her experiences made her stronger as a person and businesswoman and her willingness to share her ups and downs are simply amazing. So, when a boss like Rebecca Minkoff shares lessons, you better pay attention. Communicate your heart out, skip the shortcuts, and get friendly with failure are just some examples of her 21 lessons in the book. The book left me feeling inspired to follow my passion and hopeful that I can actually accomplish my goals.
I give Fearless 5 stars. Rebecca shares her lessons and they are so important in making it in the business world, following your dreams, and learning to move past your fears. The best part of the book is that she is honest and genuine. She knows that fears exist and will most likely always be there but you can learn to shut them off for a while and move past them to greatness.
First and foremost, this was one of the most amazing fashion books I have read in quite some time. I wanted to start off the review by stating how much better this read is than the recent "influencer fashion novel". This is not only a fashion, story but a life story. If you are a young girl, this is a book to help remind you that your dreams are never too big. I loved learning about Rebecca Minkoff's journey of her career. She truly started from nothing, living on a relatives floor, to living with elderly to save money, and just try to make it. I think it is safe to say that most 20 year olds are more worried about partying, tiktok, the next big thing, and would rather be broke, and miserable than to live with a 65+ woman in NYC, but that is what is so special about this book and this woman. She was so dedicated to her brand from day one, and knew she had so much to offer if she was just given the chance. She asked for what she wanted, and never let anything get in the way, and if it did she figured a way to overcome it. Whether you are a young woman in a business career, fashion career or finance career, we can all learn something from Rebecca, about life, about love and about tenacity. I will forever look at her brand in such a different light, and when I have the chance to choose, I will choose her brand over others, because I know I am supporting much more than a label.
I just reviewed Fearless by Rebecca Minkoff. #Fearless #NetGalley
