A MUST READ!! I LOVED THIS BOOK! Full of humor, inspiration and REAL ways to get out of your own way and become the successful creative entrepreneur you know you are born to be!!! After reading ‘Make It Happen ‘ I feel like I understand myself better, feel confident that I have something special to offer the world and I’m aware that I’m not alone on this journey and that I will MAKE IT HAPPEN! This book is NOW MY #1 go to gift for my fellow Creatives! Enjoy :)
I really loved this book! It was incredibly interesting and inspirating. I loved following along with how she got to where she is now. It was simple yet impactful with a lot of great tips. I also bought a second one for a friend who is starting a new company! And I always reference back to it and suggest it to anyone who's starting something new or needs a little encouragement. Great read!
I loved this book! It took me longer than usual to get through because it lit me up so much that I had to put it down to check things off my to-do list.m! For me, the best part about this book was getting a clearer picture of the author’s journey. It’s a very relatable and practical guidebook that helps you realize there’s nothing holding you back but you. I also really loved the journaling prompts as they gave me more clarity and focus into my own journey. I would absolutely recommend this book for anyone who is trying to achieve a goal in their life but just can’t quite seem to get there and doesn’t really know why. I’ll be keeping this and turning to it when I need inspiration and motivation in the future.
This is a great book for anyone who is looking to start their journey as a creative entrepreneur or hoping for an extra dose of confidence. It is a great gift for someone in your life who might not be sure how to apply their creativity and turn these sparks of inspiration into something that can propel them further while on their journey of self discovery. Anecdotes and interviews with working entrepreneurs/artisans offer great insights into what it means to start and grow a creative business.
I literally couldn't put this down the writing was so good. I was instantly hooked on Jenna's story, her vibrant, vulnerable and authentic sharing. I looooooooooved how she integrated the practical with the more mindset stuff. This is a MUST read for entrepreneurs.
This book is an awesome resource for entrepreneurs, but it goes much deeper than just business. It really triggered my creativity, helped me understand my behaviours/patterns, and ultimately came out knowing more about myself. I feel really inspired and now know I have the tools to take my business to the next level!
I really enjoyed this book - it was an interesting read and I have already tested out a few of the mindsets described inside. The most valuable parts of this book for me were the exercises listed at the end of each chapter - most 'self help' style books don't give you many ways to hold yourself accountable or actually work on the skills they teach, but having some practical questions to ask yourself regularly is quite helpful. I would recommend this book to any creative entrepreneurs who are looking for the motivation and inspiration to take things to the next level!
THANK YOU JENNA HERBUT! Without her, I wouldn't be as motivated and thrilled to ACTUALLY power through to go for my dreams. No. I don't need a grown woman that I don't know to tell me to pursue this. And..No. I don't need a book to motivate me to pursue this. However, what I did need was the consolidated knowledge from this book that I did not know or have before. Who better to learn from than from a successful entrepreneur herself!? I have a full-time paying salary in a stable job, but because of this book, I've realized that as much as I love my career now..there is so much out there in the world that would make me so much happier and be so much more fulfilling. This book kept me wanting to read more. (cliche I know!) But not because it was filled with new groundbreaking news/methods on how to be living your dreams and being successful, but because it provided authentic, real life, and transparent experiences, knowledge, and thoughts! This is what I loved most about this book! Jenna isn't selfish in keeping what she knows to herself. She wants to share the wealth of knowledge! Why reinvent the wheel?! Community over competition!
So..THANKS JENNA! This has single-handedly become my favorite read to date!
I have a couple passion projects in addition to my day job, but I found myself procrastinating and putting them off. The book title caught my attention because I wanted to "Make It Happen" for me. I was not disappointed. My favourite takeaway were all of the exercises, which got my creative juices flowing again, until I was reengaged in my projects. Highly recommend for anyone that wants less wishing and more doing!
