I’m Free! 30 Days To A Stress Free Life!
Authoress Tee Renee
August 16th, 2016
I received 30 Days To A Stress Free Life yesterday evening and I am already done reading. But, that does not mean that I am finished with the book. If you have been reading my book reviews, you already are aware of how hard I can judge these books and authors. I have no intentions on deteriorating the egos of my peers but instead, wish to assist in their improvement in this craft. So, there is no shock that I immediately was disappointed in the size of the piece sent to me. 50 pages? Really? But, in the first chapter, I quickly realized that the Authoress had something to say and she did not come to play games.
I find that when people publish these small self-help books (or collaboration of pages, as I like to call them), they really just throw a bunch of words down onto a piece of paper, upload to the first self-publisher to pop up on their Google search and slap a price tag on it. And I judge them the harshest. If you dare to call yourself an author, at least be capable enough to have your “book” next to ours on the bookshelves. But, Renee carefully laid out her major points, supporting points, introduction, conclusion, sources and the entire body of work was uniform. Ugh! I love a uniform layout. I loathe when an “author” has a “book” full of unnecessary italicized and bold words, irrelevant quotes, in-consecutive paragraph layouts, fonts and font sizes! I could go on! Thankfully, I don’t have to because, Renee proved that she knew what she was doing.
My favorite chapter was Chapter 5 Money Matters. A good portion of my stress derives from financial situations. Being an author and personal chef, my income can be very unpredictable. Tee Renee, however, supplied me with seven very good tips to follow. Her book is full of activities to do as you read along but, on my first read through, I only stopped here. Tip #6: Try living off of 80% of your income. I loved that! My brother has been trying to get me to live by the 70-10-10-10 rule. Live off the 70%, 10% goes to charity/ tithes, 10% you invest and 10% you invest in yourself. Tee Renee says, live off of 80%, 10% tithes, 10% savings. I love them both.
Like I said, I am in no way done with this book. It definitely deserves a few re-reads and calls for your attention as well. Authoress Tee Renee, I give I’m Free! 30 Days To A Stress Free Life! 5 out of 5 stars.
