Once upon a time, Jen Sincero was in a punk band called ‘Crotch.’ The struggle in the band was real, she said last week at a book signing at Changing Hands bookstore in Phoenix. “Back in those days, I couldn’t even by a cup of coffee,” she confessed.
As it turns out, though, she had much better success at writing. Her book ‘You are a Badass’ came out in 2013 and quickly shot to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. I was among those who made it a bestseller. Her book was a staple of my summer reading list that year. Friends and I devoured chapter after chapter. We did all the exercises. Then we’d get on the phone and talk about our experiences. Amazing things happened for us. It was cool and motivating, just like Jen Sincero.
