Grit, passion and generally kicking ass-I’m sure it’s on her resume.


In life it’s great when you can find an author who helps give you a swift kick in the butt when you’re needing inspiration, someone who can get those brain juices pumping like a lemonade dispenser at a chick-fil-a during the summertime.   Sally Hogshead is that for me.  How can you not appreciate a chick who’s website tag line is: ” A hogshead is a barrel that holds 62 gallons.  So what’s your name, smartass?”  Sure, you can toss me in a lbd and slap on some classic jewelry and make me stand around and drink tea and eat cucumber finger sandwiches but at heart, I’m still that girl who gets a good belly laugh out of the great things in life like dirty jokes, great stories, meeting new folks and laughing so hard my sides hurt.

Just picked up and blasted through her latest book, Fascinate , which, as expected, rocked.  If you haven’t stumbled across her first book, Radical Careering, it’s a must read also, however out of print

Anyhoo, enjoying a fired up author as I do and being a little too plugged in to sites like twitter and StumbleUpon, I found out she eloped recently which I think is so rocking and so her.  Kinda have to read to appreciate and no, it’s not some TLC wedding story mumbo jumbo, just kick-ass big love and them celebrating it together.  Oh, and a pink wig is involved.

SO, if you’re looking for a little self-inflicted ass kicking with a side of fire in your belly, she’s a great read, tons of personality and lots of great real world examples.  If you can’t smile while reading anything she does, you must have the personality of a spork, just sayin.’
