Reading Challenge Book 5 – Girl Code

2022 GoodRead Challenge – Book 5 of 50

Girl Code – written by Cara Alwill Leyba. I will be honest I have never heard of Cara Alwill Leyba and the reason why I listened to this book was because I added this books a few years ago to my reading list. I think I saw it on someone GoodRead list and decided to add it to my list. If I’m completely honest I never paid attention to the additional text on the cover and didn’t realize it was about female entrepreneur until I started to listen to it. I might of known that when I added the book to my list. I wanted a new book to listen to and there are only so many books you can get on Libby that includes an audiobook. I honestly do not have a lot of things to say about the book. I did listen to the book at normal speed since it’s more of a self-help/inspiring book so I didn’t want to miss anything.

I will say as I listen to the book I had to ask myself a few hard questions that I still don’t have the answer too. I have a hard time relating to women in general. I also feel that I’m not a girly girl but I am not a tomboy either. I don’t know where I fall to be honest. I do believe women can do a lot of things and I support other women who start their own business. I have even consider it for myself but just don’t know where to start at this point. I am also very aware that I am a mom of young kids and making time to work on a business is slim due to me trying to get our life in order. There is a time and place for these things. I feel very strongly that right now my focus needs to be on my kids and I’m not saying I won’t try to do something down the road. I just know in this season it’s about my kids and getting our life in order. There are so many thing I need to do to prepare for our growing family, educating out kids, and downsizing our inventory.

I had a hard time relating to the book and need to do some self-reflection to figure out where I stand in general. I am planning on writing a post about the idea of being a woman and what does it mean. What does it look like for me and how to do I get more in touch of my feminine side. If you want a book that is inspiring and try to motivate you to take steps then you should listen to it. It’s is inspiring to hear other woman stories but there so much more to everyone stories then what is covered in this book. I got the feeling that the author doesn’t have any kids so they are able to focus solely on their career. As a mom of six YOUNG kids I am not in a place where I can sacrifice time and money to chase 100% after any career goals. Then again it would help if I had any in general. That’s another post for the future – anyway this was book number 5 for my reading challenge. I still am working on a few other books but haven’t really pushed myself lately.
