#BookReview: Power Your Happy by Lisa Sugar

Reviewer:  Samantha

I received a review copy


Lisa Sugar has an amazing job. She spends her days at POPSUGAR creating content about pop culture, must-have handbags and makeup, healthy recipes, and Instagram-worthy sweets. She manages an enormously successful, growing company with employees who love what they do. And her life is just as great at home. She and her husband have three daughters and she’s the number one soccer mom who loves reading bedtime stories every night.

How did she do it? By figuring out what her dream job was, taking risks, and believing in herself. And now she wants to motivate others to do the same. She wants to show them how to live colorful, interesting lives where every second counts.

She’ll do so by sharing her personal and business story. Lisa knows that creating your dream job requires hard work, patience, and experience. She’ll give advice, in big and small ways, about exactly how to do that, from starting a company to ditching a relationship that isn’t working to becoming a fabulous boss. And with the great, accessible writing style that has made PopSugar such a hit, she’ll make it fun!


Fifteen percent in, and I was taking notes. I encouraged my husband to read this book. I will read this again. And probably again. Lisa Sugar has a terrific voice, very positive and encouraging, and I soaked up her advice throughout. I saw a lot of myself Lisa, from having big dreams to working on my passion in every moment of spare time I had, and I feel like I made a new friend after reading this.  I’m so thankful I got the opportunity to read Power Your Happy, and I highly, highly recommend this. I also now really want to work at POPSUGAR. Like, real bad. In all seriousness though, I cannot say enough good about this book. A must read.

5 stars
