Before her husband’s sudden death, Regina Lawless was at the height of her corporate career as head of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Instagram and seemingly had it all. Then tragedy struck, forcing her to rediscover who she truly was inside and what she wanted moving forward.
On her journey to live and thrive again after loss, Regina realized that the outdated rules for success—to grind incessantly and sacrifice yourself to get ahead—weren’t serving her or any women, especially Black women and women of color. So Regina wrote this book to encourage people, particularly high-achieving women, to investigate their own states of happiness and fulfillment and to build more meaningful lives, both personally and in the workplace.
The meaningFULL framework that Regina uses will help you
● redefine success and live a more profound life,
● reconnect to your heart,
● restore the body,
● reframe your beliefs,
● renew your spirit, and
● reinvent your routines.
This valuable framework, actionable takeaways, and Regina’s inspiring personal story will allow you to redefine what success means and find the courage to change your life.
“In her debut book, Do You, Regina walks us through the well-trodden path that Black women and women of color know all too well, a path where you have to be nothing short of perfection to be accepted in a world that wasn't designed with you in mind. Despite the very personal, vulnerable story Regina honors us with in Do You, her healing journey is one that any woman of color can relate to. Do You takes the best of Regina’s hard-won wisdom to empower women to move through life as their truest, wisest selves."

—Adwoa Dadzie, Chief People Officer, Hearst Magazines
“A powerful call to action for women of all backgrounds. Do You shows us how to break free from outdated norms and truly thrive.”
—Jenny Dearborn, MEd, MBA, Chief People Officer, Board Director, Advisor

I would recommend this book to everyone not just considering it to be about handling loss and to achieve success. I read the book as a memoir considering the way it has been written.
Despite facing challenges of a new job of today’s most used social media and being a woman of color with the sudden loss of a close family, the author has been forced to reconsider her position and the decisions she had to make with the right people.
This book has so much to offer and the more I read the book, the more I got more inspired to be unapologetically to be myself and be motivated to become who I want to be.
If you need to rediscover satisfaction in both work and life, happiness and fulfillment this book will be your best guide and friend.
Thank you, Greenleaf Book Group/ Fast Company Press, for the advance reading copy.
