A practical and inspiring book for misfit business rebels. Misfit to Maven is more sex, drugs and misadventure than other business books – reminding us all how extraordinary we can be, it will leave you inspired and ready to build a life as extraordinary as you are, that feels as good on the inside as it looks from the outside.
Misfit to Maven tells Ebonie Allard’s story – from feeling ARGH about business and life to feeling AHHH about it all. The book is part story, part handbook and shows you how you can learn to listen and trust yourself implicitly. Sharing all her successes and failures, mistakes and milestones – from working in the TV industry to homeless and living in a boiler room – Ebonie shares with candid honesty everything that has led her to where she is now – living a life by design.
This book is for you if you are unemployable because you are too creative, too innovative, too smart, too geeky or too full of heart to clock in and clock out of a job and or life. If you feel like a square peg in a round hole and want to move from a place of overwhelm and isolation to a place of clarity, progress and belonging. If you have felt stuck or unable to receive success. If you are self-employed, a micro-business owner, or an aspiring entrepreneur who wants to live a fully rounded, 360-degree life where there is space and time to work, rest and play.
“I’m so glad there is finally a book out there that can not only help us entrepreneurs in a business sense but also on a much deeper spiritual level. There is no doubt in my mind that if you are feeling a little lost, if you have tonnes of ideas but no idea what to do with them, if you have passion but also fear of failure that Misfit to Maven can help you realise your potential and help put you on the path to success in business AND in life!”
“I found this to be particularly informative and inspiring as I often feel like a misfit myself, struggling with fitting in and stepping up. It’s written from a personal experience and resonates especially because of the openness and honesty applied. The concepts are simple and Ebonie makes them easy and less scary to apply!”
“I didn’t read this book. I devoured it. In two sittings. This is so much more than a book about ‘business’. It’s about authenticity. It’s about spirituality. It’s about life!
The practical workbook at the end of the book is an invaluable resource and really helped me to structure the million thoughts that were racing through my mind as I completed the book.
This book showed up in my life at just the right time. My journey is only just beginning. But I feel like at last I know the way…”
