With a passion for connecting with people, author Nikki Porter opens an honest and vulnerable conversation about the importance of clear and mindful communication in achieving healthy relationships and a happy life. In The Conscious Communicator, she uses her experience with horses to add insight to where miscommunications, unnecessary drama, and frustration originate. Porter discusses concepts used to train horses which focus on conscious, clear, and compassionate communication and applies them to all relationships. With a mix of research and honest, personal perspective, Porter encourages you to become more conscious of your communication with others by shining the light inward and allowing you to change your approach and perspective when interacting with people in all facets of life. Porter argues you must become conscious of your thoughts and emotions in order to take responsibility for how you communicate daily. The Conscious Communicator offers exercises that determine your communication strengths and weaknesses. It reminds you to live a life true to yourself by creating healthy boundaries and letting go of what doesn’t serve your growth and happiness. Along with the encouragement to become more mindful, she reassures you this isn’t a quest for perfection where you’ll never encounter an argument again, it’s a pursuit of creating and maintaining relationships which bring joy.

From the woman who has built an empire of badass female entrepreneurs comes the long-awaited sequel to Girl Code. Cara Alwill Leyba's riveting voice and kinship with her audience drove the self-published success of Girl Code, a book that encouraged women to support each other in the business community. Now her many fans are ready to take the next step: building sustainable confidence from the ground up. Most women who are insecure look for the equivalent of a sugar rush, such as telling themselves they're better than other people or changing the way they look. But those tricks won't protect them from losing confidence in the future. Neither will simply being outspoken and aggressive, if those traits aren't authentic. Leyba has three simple but provocative arguments. First, confidence doesn't come from "winning" -- it comes comes from ignoring the success narratives we absorb from magazines and movies. Second, the impressions people make on others depend on their personalities, not their looks--so there's no reason to use the word "ugly," ever. Finally, the foundation of confidence comes from "audacious auditing," Leyba's term for identifying toxic people and habits and getting rid of them. Written in her chatty, older-sister voice, and full of revealing stories from every stage of Cara's life, Like She Owns The Place will help readers rewire their minds to be more confident. Take it from the woman who quit her job at MTV, dyed her hair pink, and made herself a bestselling author -- there's a path becoming stronger and happier.
