Womentality is a collection of 13 essays by women who have stepped out if the rat race to freelance or start their own business. Most of these women have found work that allows them the flexibility to spend more time with their family. #goals I am in the midst of doing the same thing myself so this book was very timely for my life.

Many women can find inspiration from these women's stories. The women in this book are from all over the world and from various walks of life. Most of them felt dissa

I don’t think you all understand how damn happy I was when I received this book in the mail, can you say ecstatic? I read about it online and had the chance of signing up and requesting an ARC for the book; and just as the fates would have it, I got it. Lately I have been getting a lot of ARCs in the mail, so hopefully, I will have more content coming up soon.

This book isn’t a how-to-guide, or this worked for me, so maybe it will work for you type of book. Each woman in this book has

This book, edited by Erin Wildermuth, made me want to move to another country....again. The collection of 13 short stories by women around the globe point to possibilities of meeting reality and dreams for women looking to buck the traditional 9-to-5, corporate lifestyle. The paths forged by these 13 women may not be the usual route society pushes us to follow, and that's what makes their stories all the more endearing to read. I really relate to the desire for freedom, flexibility and my life o ...more

Womentality edited by Erin Wildermuth is a collection of personal essays from 13 women who have recreated their lives. From all over the world, these women were relatable and inspirational in a quiet way. Some chapters are motivational, some give advice, and some are idealistic. Many "stories" will touch home and you will find yourself thinking, "that's exactly how I feel". Each essay begins with a photo of the highlighted woman which helps to bring home that these are true, real-life people and ...more

Book is set up as short stories from women all over the world telling their unique stories to freedom.

I love how each story is unique, open and raw. What is also great is that each story is specific in the changes they took and the resources they used to make those changes. This will definitely help others who may be in similar situations who are reading the book!

Women who quit the rat race share their stories on what spurred them, what they learned and what others could expect. The women come from all over the world. Great stories that really give a sneak preview on what it is like to not be tethered to a typical 9-to-5 job.

Thanks to the publisher for the review copy access.

I have always wondered what it would be like to be my own boss, to be free of the 9 to 5 workday and work on my own time and terms. Reading about these 13 women from around the world who decided to take that risk and make their work more than just something that brings in money is truly inspiring. I loved how these stories talked about the struggles faced in the workplace, acknowledged the obstacles and uncertainty that comes with leaving office life and gave hope to those wondering if they shou ...more

Womentality is a book with a collection of essays from women around the world and their stories of leaving the traditional workforce of working 9 to 5pm. Each section is a different woman’s story and why they chose to shift to freelance work and how it has changed their lives. It also gives a glimpse of the workforce environment of the field they work in.

What I appreciated the most about this book is that the women come from different backgrou

Individually, these stories are incredibly inspiring. I really appreciated the honesty these women displayed and how willing they were to give advice to other women looking to make a change in their career paths. As a compilation though, something felt off. It's possible the subject was too broad to paint a cohesive picture. Nevertheless, it was still an interesting read.

Thank you to LibraryThing for an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
