From the bestselling author of Girl Code, Cara Alwill Leyba delivers Girl on Fire —the long-awaited follow up fans have been waiting for. The self-publishing queen started this conversation four years ago with Girl Code, her ode to women and their power, a book so successful that it has been translated in seven languages and continues to make a major impact on the world. Gi From the bestselling author of Girl Code, Cara Alwill Leyba delivers Girl on Fire —the long-awaited follow up fans have been waiting for. The self-publishing queen started this conversation four years ago with Girl Code, her ode to women and their power, a book so successful that it has been translated in seven languages and continues to make a major impact on the world. Girl On Fire builds on this concept and shows you how to blaze your own trail immediately. You don’t need permission from anyone to live fearlessly and start living your dream. As an early voice in the female-driven movement, Cara continues to be a leader in the space, liberating women to trust their intuition and create their own opportunities. She empowers her readers to stop waiting for their big break and, instead, to publish their own books, start their own podcasts, host their own panels and design their own clothing lines; whatever their desires are. From the author: Who would you be if you stopped following *their* rules? What would you create if you create if you had nothing holding you back? Now that women entrepreneurs are banding together in sisterhood and realizing the importance of collaboration over competition, it's time to take things to the next level. It's time to rise up, together, and challenge the status quo. It's time to question the way things have been done in the past, to write our own rules, and do life and business OUR way. The world needs us, as women, to utilize our voices now more than ever. We must step into our power and we must let nothing hold us back. Business is changing rapidly, and there has never been a better time to choose yourself. Gone are the days of waiting to be chosen by an agent, a record label, a company, or a publisher. Successful entrepreneurs don't wait for their "big break" —they create it. They don't wait to be featured in a magazine, or picked up by a publisher, or given a chance to speak on a stage. They promote themselves on platforms they create, they self-publish their own books, they launch their own podcasts, they create their own events and build their own stages. Now is the time to show up for ourselves. We all have the ability to design a life and career beyond our wildest imaginations without permission, selection, or validation. Girl on Fire will show you how to do it. This book is for every woman who has had a vision that others might not understand. It's for every woman who is sick and tired of playing by the rules. It's for every woman who has known she was meant for more and has waited far too long for someone to give her the permission she thought she needed.

    She publishes her own books and is a great advocate of women supporting each other! I have enjoyed reading 2 books by her back to back. Couldn't put them down.

    I'm a guy, I read this book. It was free with Kindle Unlimited, the reviews were amazing and even though it's geared towards women, why not read it, especially since almost all of my co-workers are women and a large majority of my business is with women. It gets a 3.5 stars if I could, at just under 80 pages, it's a quick 1-2 hour read depending on your pace. There's some good lines that can be pulled out of this and the questions that you're asked to write down and answer later are helpful for I'm a guy, I read this book.

There's some good lines that can be pulled out of this and the questions that you're asked to write down and answer later are helpful for those who are looking to strike out on their own. I found a lot of this book to be self serving though, full of self accolades, consistently reminding the reader that Cara has sold X number of books and while most self published books make $X she made $xxx from it. I fully support someone being proud of their accomplishments, I think it could have been done a few ways. While she does quote Gary Vaynerchuk (and many others) pretty early in the book, later on she mentions taking evening classes to be a life coach while still working at MTV (a fact that seems to be on every 5th page) and even working on her side-projects while in the MTV offices. The culmination is that she's grown her side-business large enough to finally take the jump and leave MTV and make the side-project the full time job. This has been one of Gary Vee's biggest battle cries for at least they last 5-6 years, maybe longer. Quit watching sports, playing video games and watching YouTube for pleasure and hustle & grind. One of maybe the best lessons to be pulled from the book is the few pages on reducing and removing oneself from digital and social media, slowing down the conversations with friends who maybe should be acquaintances. I don't know what the book costs, at the price I paid (free) it was very much worth my 2 hours of read time, although anything more than a few bucks I'd be cautions of spending it. It does feel like much of this content could have been split into a dozen blog posts or YouTube videos, but Cara decided instead to self publish to (again remind everyone) her 9th book.

    I think this is a good motivational book for women looking to improve their brand, whatever that may be. I definitely took some pointers out of it along the way & looking forward to using some of those pointers in everyday life.

Someone heard me struggling and thought to help by supplying me with a self motivating book that was highly rated on Amazon. I guess the thought of someone wanting me to better myself through words and by generous means made me comforted, and so I actually finished the book out of gratitude? Or do people usually finish self help books front to back? Not much to say about the book but as someone mentioned before, its basically 2 hours worth of a pep talk. Its all true though, what she writes about. Stuff we already know just need to be reminded of sometimes (if you don't get it from therapy like I do lmao). This would be empowering for women, or anyone, who felt they were stuck and in a negative space. I personally have been in the process of overcoming such so it was basically repeating my new head mantras lol. I still prefer novels/memoirs the like... self help and such I think I'd prefer to listen to on podcasts or TED talks if I ever felt the need and for smaller amounts of time. But as I said before, the act of giving someone a book like this is more memorable but maybe thats just my love language.

    More than inspirational I love a good inspirational story but this book is more than that. Yes, there were real life stories but Cara provided thought provoking questions so you can explore yourself to ultimately move in the direction you want in life. It's empowerment as its finest and I recommend anyone to take a few hours to read Girl on Fire. It doesn't matter what your background is, your current level of success or your future goals - you will walk away ready to change your life.

    I liked the points she made and the practical tips and journaling ideas at the end of each chapter but I felt like the author spent too much time telling her own story and how blessed she has been instead of inspiring others on how to get there. She has worked hard to get where she is but I would rather read a personal development book to help me reach success instead of reading a whole book about the author telling me how successful she is.

    Amazing This book is nothing short of amazing. I don’t know much about the author and I just started following her on Instagram but her book I felt like was written just for me. It was an encouraging read that was straight to the point! If you are in a place where you are unsure of yourself as a woman of purpose this book is for you!! Do yourself a favor and order this book.

    This book inspired me so much to get moving and stop procrastinating on my own ambitions. To ignore the negative and focus on my own aspirations. I found her writing to be very uplifting and true. It felt like a good friend had a come to Jesus meeting with me and put me in my place for my own good. I have read this book two times.

    There are lots of good little nuggets of inspiration but, if you have already read Cara's other books then expect a lot of the same stories. It felt like a repeat of Girl Code with a few extras. I love Cara and all of her content but this one was not my cup of tea.

    Love it I have a habit of sitting down with Caras books in dark times and she helps me remember that it's ok to be me and to choose me. This book does exactly that and I would recommend it to any of my friends or family.

    I loved how quick of a read this was and how simple the message was, very little fluff. I really enjoyed it and felt empowered. She really reinforces the message of speaking your truth, being authentic, and foraging your own fearless path.

    Super inspiring boss lady anthem I have not read Girl Code but I clearly need to..Cara writes super relatable content despite our career differences. I highlighted so many points throughout the book to keep reminding myself of. This is a definite re-read every year or so.

    Really enjoyed! Amazing reminders- Took the morning off and decided to read Cara's latest. It was a refreshing reminder. I especially loved the personal stories she incorporated. That's usually when my heart ends up in my throat. Really enjoyed! Amazing reminders- Took the morning off and decided to read Cara's latest. It was a refreshing reminder.
