Book Review & Giveaway: The Five Truths About Work-Life Balance by Jae Ellard



Work-life balance has nothing to do with work. Really. It also doesn’t matter what words you use to describe it. The fact is, most people share a similar desire to create easy joy and meaningful engagement across the roles, relationships and responsibilities that make up life.

Our current habits and perceptions often get us stuck and prevent us from creating the life we desire. Get unstuck, learn the truths about work-life balance.

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Most self help books tend to bore me because they repeat the same information over and over, changing a few words here or there. I’ve never known if this was to get the point across or to make the information appear to be enough to put in a book. Either way…boring! This book is not like that at all. I was pleasantly surprised. It’s not just short but it it gets right to the point.

Each of the five truths has its own chapter. The truth is presented, explained briefly but eloquently, and the end of the chapter reiterates the truth with along with a supportive phrase or sentence. It’s the best self help book I’ve read and, even better, if you want to read the key points again you can just sit down and read the whole book again in 5 or 10 minutes.

    You’re welcome. It’s one of the few self help books that I really think could help someone. And you can keep going back to it for inspiration.
