The New Billionaire: Someone Who Helps a Billion People is the title of the book written by Julie Aragon and one sentence in the review caught my eye; How we change how we love and honor ourselves, we change how we love the world. It sounded like an interesting book and knowing that she was a relative prompted me to order a copy.
My cousin told me that Julie had a difficult time growing up. Julie, at twelve years old, lost her mother who had suffered with breast cancer for six years. She being the oldest cared for her five brothers and her father. Her father did not help around the house which made the responsibility fall on the young girl. In those days, the man worked and earned the money and the wife stayed home and managed the home. When his wife died, his daughter took up the role of doing the things her mother would have done around the house. I wondered if her childhood insight was where she got her ideas to write a motivational book.
Her Bio is impressive as she is described as an entrepreneur, motivational leader and speaker, life coach, writer, and health and fitness coach. "We don't get to chose the life we were born into....we do get to choose what we make it!" I am so ready to read the book that my cousin said "every chapter ends with an uplifting thought."
Once I receive the book and I read it, I will write another blog and let you know my thoughts on the book.
