Tabatha is back to share her secrets of business success . . .

With her characteristic savvy expertise and no-nonsense advice, the perfectly coiffed celebrity hairstylist, Tabatha Coffey, returns with her second book, teaching readers that the secret of success is taking charge—of your priorities, your future, and your life. Fans of her hit show, Tabatha Takes Over, value Tabatha's sound approach to overhauling failing businesses, and now, in Own It!, she takes to the page to reach out to anyone with a dream: whether you're just beginning, revamping your career, or starting your own enterprise.

Sharing her blunt but rock-solid wisdom, Tabatha provides tips for every aspect of business—from entrepreneurship, to customer service, to management—as well as on the home front, to help women seeking to balance their family lives with their careers. Filled with stories about real people who have faced challenging transitions, in addition to anecdotes from Tabatha's own experiences, this book reveals, through her unflinching honesty, Tabatha's commitment to the dreams and goals of her readers, and her never-say-never attitude when it comes to bringing them to life.

Success is the result when you Own It! in all aspects of your life, and Tabatha breaks it down step-by-step as your straight-shooting personal coach to show you how it's done.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Before I start my review of this book, let me start by saying that I’m a huge fan of Tabatha Coffey’s tv show. I’ve watched it since it first started, and it gets better every season. Tabatha is confident, straight-forward, doesn’t put up with nonense and gives good simple advice.

This book reads exactly like she talks on the show, so it’s no surprise that I highly enjoyed it. The only difference between the book and her show is that (1) she’s talking directly to you the reader, and (2) there are lots of personal snippets and anecdotes mixed into the advice. This personal touch makes the book much more entertaining.

The book really boils down to a lot of basic common sense advice. But sometimes you need to be reminded of those things. The book covers business and personal things to help you “own it”. For instance, there are some great sections on the preparations you should do if you want to start your own business. Since I’m not interested in starting a business, I found the personal sections more applicable. All of it was solid advice though.

Overall, this was a great book full of great advice. The strength of personality that came through in the writing was amazing, and was the best part of the book. If you’ve ever watched her show and wished she could talk to you, this book does just that. Just be prepared to follow through with action because this book almost demands it.
