“A powerful, innovative plan for finding creative fulfillment and bringing your passions to life.”—Marie Forleo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything Is Figureoutable

Make room for your dreams and revolutionize how you manage your time and energy using this groundbreaking framework for finding work-life harmony from an accomplished entrepreneur and business strategist

Throughout her multifaceted career, Tina Wells has always found a way to transform her dreams into reality. She turned a business that she launched at sixteen into an award-winning marketing agency, led boardroom meetings as the youngest (and sometimes only) Black woman in the room, and pursued her childhood dream of traveling around the world.

But all that success came with burnout, and Tina had to rethink how she thought about work and life. The result of her deep thinking and some trial and error, The Elevation Approach presents Tina’s four-phase plan, a flexible and foolproof technique that helps you meet your goals without sacrificing joy for productivity and progress. Rather than treating work and life as separate and necessarily opposing forces, The Elevation Approach integrates your personal and professional ambitions, values, and responsibilities at every turn:

Preparation: Ask the right questions, get curious about the possibilities, and figure out what you have, what you need, and what you can give.
Inspiration: Expand your beliefs of what’s possible—create spaces for mind-wandering, relearn how to pay attention, and collect creative sparks.
Recreation: Hit reset, make room for rest and play, and when something isn’t working, give yourself permission to try something new.
Transformation: Evaluate the work that you’ve done, decide whether to stay the course, and celebrate the changes and goals you’ve accomplished.

Whether you want to start a new business, find time for a new hobby, or reevaluate a relationship, The Elevation Approach can help you make impactful shifts and realize your most cherished dreams—without losing sight of what matters most to you. With exercises featuring writing prompts and worksheets, real-world insights from business leaders and creatives, and “Instant Elevation” practices that ensure your efforts align with your priorities in each phase, The Elevation Approach is a one-stop solution to work-life harmony.

A wonderful book on elevating your life and your dreams without burning out. She has a 4-phase process and goes into deep detail about each one, with exercises, questions, charts, and principles, among many other tips and techniques. While the book is a lot about setting goals and has a fabulous approach to do so, it’s more than that. I enjoyed the “instant elevation” stories from other people, with her own stories and experiences throughout the book. A good book on helping you to build practices that help guide you either out of burnout, or prevent you from burning out, aligning with your goals, and living a harmonious elevated life authentic to you. Well-written, and I appreciate Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for allowing me to read and review.
