To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive, including: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else. Treat every job, person, and experience as if it could lead to your next big opportunity. If you do it, say it, think it—then own it. Stand up for yourself and fully acknowledge who you really are. Each rule is illustrated with compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure Bethenny.

Sep 24, Steph rated it liked it Recommends it for: Gen Y women, men and women looking to leave their past behind. I'm a fan of Bethenny Frankel though not an undiscerning one. I openly admitted that I wasn't a fan of her Skinny Girl Margarita mix - bad headache after drinking it.

I enjoyed this book more than the last one I read by Bethenny. It was nice to hear her talk about things in her life that had been depicted on her Bravo shows: It was refreshing to hear her spin from behind the scenes. Plus, she's just so damn candid, and th I'm a fan of Bethenny Frankel though not an undiscerning one.

Plus, she's just so damn candid, and that always works for me. She's an acquired taste, I guess. In terms if advice and empowerment I think this book works. I wanted to hand it to my teenage step daughter. There's a lot in there that's relatable and clear for young women like "breaking the chain" i. Also, the idea that you have to work to make yourself stand out and "go for yours". There's lots of advice about not listening to the critics, following your own goals and making things happen. I also like her advice on "coming together", though that phrase is a bit awkward; too many self help books with career advice are singularly focused and ignore the obvious by not giving credit to the people around you who can help you attain your goals.

She encourages us to connect with our family and loved ones and to be conscious of their needs, hopes, dreams, and goals. Though she admits that this doesn't come naturally to her as she's used to fending for herself and flying solo. Coming together allows you to share in your accomplishments and failures - both are a little sweeter when you're not doing it all on your own. There's a lot more there, and I think her fans will appreciate the book and the advice she gives. I personally think it's a great book for Gen Y women heading out on their own making their way in the world.

I wish I had read something like this at that age. The closest I got to this was Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People", solid advice but a book like Bethenny's, from a woman's perspective, would have been a lot easier to connect with! Apr 05, False rated it it was ok. I watched "some" of the Houswives series,but could not take the encouragement of these ladies to live beyond their means so many facing court and foreclosures due to overexpenditure. The book was pleasant as a quasi-autobiography.

Her self-help principles are sound, but I would quibble they are "not for all. I think this might be most helpful for women in their late twenties to late forties. For an older woman? For someone in dire poverty? The shifts she expounds are hopeless. So I watched "some" of the Houswives series,but could not take the encouragement of these ladies to live beyond their means so many facing court and foreclosures due to overexpenditure. Something you aren't suppose to say I've seen one too many biochemical engineers bagging at Walmart lately. Tell them to turn to their dream when they just want to get the electric bill paid.

Nonetheless, I'd put her a step above those carping harpies on the show with her. I should add her "rules": This has a lot to do with family and your past. What do you want from life. What works for you i. Remain open to all learning, experiences and opportunities. All roads lead to Rome.

You will get there if you are focused. Clarify your goals and go for them. Separate From the Pack. To find your calling, sometimes you have to step out and away from the crowd. Hold to your principles. Stick to the truth. Life is about connection. Be out there and part of the world.

Mar 29, Jenna rated it it was ok. It wasn't what I thought. I'm not sure what I expected it to be but I know I definitely wasn't expecting a self-help kind of book. I did get some of HER story which was what I was expecting; where she came from and how she got where she is. The book also reinforced beliefs I already had The not so great parts Literally and please don't ask how many times she said in so many different ways "this is how you get to a place of yes Her points were all valid and well and good but not everyone gets everything they want.

I have appreciated Bethenny's quick wit and her one-liner humor from the bits I have seen of her on TV. This is the first book that I've read of hers. I origianlly got it because it was on sale and the cover states: I really liked the beginning of the book.

    It was strong and very concise. Overall the quality of the writing was only okay, but she's not a professi I have appreciated Bethenny's quick wit and her one-liner humor from the bits I have seen of her on TV. Overall the quality of the writing was only okay, but she's not a professional writer. Her thoughts, stories, and "rules" were good; though they were mostly the good reminders that we occassionally need to hear, but we already know. That is not to discredit the book overall because I think Bethenny has some very good and very strong points to make.

    Aug 01, Jennifer rated it it was ok. I could not finish this one. I was hoping when I bought this that she would share the scoop on her Real Housewives stint, but I was disappointed. The brief passage where she covers that sounds like a politician's canned speech. Her advice is sometimes contradictory and it's all common sense stuff everyone knows if they're out of college. The one part I found interesting was her background - she worked on Saved By the Bell, who knew?

    Otherwise, the book feels like an excuse to use the phrase "now I could not finish this one. Otherwise, the book feels like an excuse to use the phrase "now that I'm a mother" repeatedly.

    Let me first say this: I have a huge girl crush on Bethenny. I admire her work ethic and her dedication to herself, her family and her brand. I thought Naturally Thin was a naturally thin disguise of her admitted problems with food packaged as a non-diet healthy approach to eating.

    I fel Let me first say this: I felt it took food neurosis to a whole new, obsessive level. The best chapters of this book were the first few. With that being said, this book is super quotable. Is it still worth reading? Despite its shortcomings, I read through the book quickly and enjoyed my time doing so. At the risk of angering a lot of fellow Bethenny fans, she briefly touches on what sounded like an eating disorder but does not fully address it.

    Later, she talks about how she loves and appreciates tasty food: Then, she backtracks and starts speaking about the dietary restrictions she has in place for herself. It all seems very contradictory. She mentions how she had lots of food noise in her life growing up, but honestly? It seems like she has a lot of food noise now.

    The further you go in the book, the more contributor-based the advice seems to become. Perhaps deadlines for the later chapters with the publisher came at a time when Bethenny was busy filming one of her TV shows, or maybe she just ran out of steam. Despite my few qualms with the book, I honestly did enjoy it and found lots of sound bytes applicable to things I have gone through or am going through. Here are a few of my favorite tidbits from the book: Fear is an excuse and a shield.

    Irritation is a sign of stress. A place of yes is not the power of positive thinking or the law of attraction…Coming from a place of yes is about getting right down to business. Yes gives you something to do: Mar 05, Emily Schirmer rated it it was amazing Shelves: The introduction alone was all it took to make me completely hooked.

    I was instantly inspired. I felt immediately stronger and more self-assured. And I wanted to keep reading so this feeling would last. I was excited to keep reading and learning; but at the same time, I was excited to get back to my life and practice what I had learned.

    And I know I can continue to be that way. Bethenny provided me with all the advice and tools I need to live my life coming from a place of yes. Everything I need is within me. It just helps to have that voice—that additional support—from someone who has been through similar life experiences and who truly is practicing her own advice. I treated this book like a journal. I fully plan to live my life according to these 10 rules.

    I am choosing to live a full life and a happy life. To learn and grow and smile. Knowing someone else can do it makes me feel connected—helps me know I am not alone. And Bethenny has been through so much—but her experiences have taught her the skills she needs to make her life the best life possible.

    Sure, it makes me sad to think that things have so drastically changed for her; but at the same time, reading this book makes me know that Bethenny is not only making a choice that is necessary and right for her, but that she has the strength and possesses the skills she needs to get through this tough time.

    And now, thanks to her, so do I. I have already torn out the last page of this book—a summary of the 10 rules—to carry with me at all times.

    10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life

    So that I will always have what I need right with me—and within me—to come from a place of yes. This book is positive, heartfelt, honest, passionate, uplifting, real, and inspirational. Whether or not you know Bethenny Frankel—even whether or not you like her—you still have something to gain from reading this book. Mar 26, Crystal rated it it was ok.

    I found myself having a hard time finishing it. She repeated herself a lot in the book and it felt like she just skipped all around and it didn't flow well. Having said that, I did still find some great quotes and I will share them below: If you don't get out there and let people know who you are and what you want and what you can do, you may never find the job or house or relationship or whatever I just finished reading Bethenny Frankel's "A Place of Yes" and I have to say that it was a slow read.

    11 Secrets to Memorize Things Quicker Than Others

    If you don't get out there and let people know who you are and what you want and what you can do, you may never find the job or house or relationship or whatever else you want. Never assume that everybody else knows more than you or is better or smarter than you are. Being a mother is a lot of work, but it's the work of your life, and you chose it.

    See a Problem?

    What you need to succeed in your life you already have inside you. You are the mother. If something doesn't feel right to you for any reason, even if you don't know why, then you have to trust that. Sometimes what seems like too late if right on time because you are only just ready. When you operate just outside your comfort zone- whether it's taking on a new responsibility at work, or a whole new job, or signing up for a class you know nothing about, you wake up and pay more attention to your life. Just push the envelope of your own experience until you feel slight discomfort. That's when you separate from the pack.

    That's when the magic happens. Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. The ones who give you 50 reasons it can't be done When you embrace your difference, your DNA, your look or heritage or religion or your unusual name, that's when you start to shine. I have a clear picture in my mind of who the Skinnygirl is: Mar 04, Becky R. Having been a fan of Bethenny Frankel's for awhile now, I really wanted to check out her "ten rules" for tackling life.

    For anyone who has watched her reality shows, you know that Bethenny is pretty much an open book about her past and present. She has shared her career, relationships, and family with her audience. Now, she digs in to share what she has come to realize and records it in her semi-autobiographical book, A Place of Yes: Many of the rules Be Having been a fan of Bethenny Frankel's for awhile now, I really wanted to check out her "ten rules" for tackling life.

    Many of the rules Bethenny shares in her book deal with personal honesty and hard work. You do have to somehow be brave enough to say yes to things in your life that are scary or difficult; however, I wonder if some "self help" suggestions really just fit the person who realized them. I really appreciated learning about what drove her to become the person that she is, but I don't know that they always fit every person.

    There was one rule about not doing work that is unsatisfying, and attempting things that scare you and help you achieve your best self. I'd love to say that I could drop my job and find that "blissful" fit, but I think there is a fine line between doing what you do best, by which you feel fulfilled, and doing what you do best but not necessary liking work for all its stresses.

    My parents always reminded me that work is called work for a reason. I don't know how realistic it is to toss over ones "real life" for the hopes of a better one. I will admit that it takes great courage when you do realize you need to find a better path. All right, so let me cut to the chase. I thought Bethenny's book gave some good information about how she achieved greater success and joy in her life. While not all the "rules" she listed might fit every person--in my opinion--I appreciated the journey she took us on and was rather interested in what she learned.

    Jul 12, Megan M rated it really liked it. I will start by saying that I really did not know who Bethenny was in when I picked up this audio book. I'm not a Housewives fan, I don't really drink and I've never seen her on any of her many other television shows. But she has a new fan in me. This book, while not amazingly well written, is a fun and inspiring almost-autobiography about how believing in your abilities and yourself can get you pretty far. This is not really a self-help book, though it is marketed as such. It's really Bethenny' I will start by saying that I really did not know who Bethenny was in when I picked up this audio book.

    It's really Bethenny's biography written in vaguely themed chapters. At the end of the book, I felt like I knew her story pretty well and understood where she was coming from.

    A Place of Yes

    I didn't care for the way she acted like her life has been all struggle, because the money she was obviously privileged to have helped a lot more than she would probably like to admit, but I do get that money doesn't buy happiness and I recognized some of the more personal struggles from my own childhood. I'm worried about what everyone will think. I'm very aware of the financial struggle that is ahead of me and of how hard I'm going to have to work to get to where I want to be in this new field.

    I found Bethenny's "go and get it" attitude to be really helpful in calming some of those doubts. I can't say that this book is something that everyone will enjoy, but if you're at a hard place in your life where you're just not sure if going for your dreams in the "right" choice, this book might give you a little motivation to go for it. Mar 24, Dr. First, I have to start out saying that I am a huge fan of Bethenny Frankel.

    I really love how she is a successful business women and keeps it real with her honesty and great sense of humor. I think her openness was really evident in this book, in which she dishes about her childhood, life on the Housewives , and her failed relationships and business ventures. I was really inspired by her strong work ethic and ability to integrate all she has learned along the way. There were some aspects about th First, I have to start out saying that I am a huge fan of Bethenny Frankel.

    There were some aspects about this book that were somewhat confusing, such as the struggle between being self-help book versus an autobiography. I think it really should have been more focused on falling more clearly into one of these genres. There are also parts of this book that were a little uncomfortable to read since she has filed for divorce since it was published, but I don't judge her negatively for that. If anything, this book shows that she did believe that her marriage would work. Overall, I did enjoy this book. I think it's always an inspiration when a famous person is so open about the difficulties she has faced in life.

    Rather than self-help and relationships, I would love for Bethenny to write a book more focused on succeeding in business. She seems to be an innovative person, a savvy business woman, and a true American entrepreneur who can offer some advice about starting and maintaining a business. Sep 05, Abby Lyn rated it liked it. This was our book club's latest selection, so I have to be honest in my review here that this or any other self-help type of book would not have been my personal choice for reading.

    I was interested regardless because the Housewives series is one of my guilty pleasures, and I have been able to see Bethenny Frankel's remarkable transformation from the snarky housewife who wasn't a wife, to the happily married, mother-of-one Skinnygirl megamillionaire she is today.

    I probably wouldn't like Bethe This was our book club's latest selection, so I have to be honest in my review here that this or any other self-help type of book would not have been my personal choice for reading. I probably wouldn't like Bethenny in person she admits she has a rather negative personality , but I thoroughly enjoy her antics on screen, and her hilarious, tell-it-like-it-is frankness. Bethenny has made herself into a brand, and reading about how she created that type of acclaim purely on the strength of her persona is fascinating.

    And I appreciate that she doesn't sugarcoat the harsh reality of what made her accomplished life what it is: Success isn't handed to us; Bethenny reminds us that we have to go out there and claim it for ourselves. Sep 03, Sue rated it liked it. As a self help book, this was not the greatest.

    Sometimes, her rules didn't really go with the theme of the chapter. And I don't really get the "act on it" chapter. She spends the whole chapter telling you how you need to act on your dreams but she never really did much with her dream to become an actress. Some of it is pretty repetitive too. However, I truthfully bought the book for the autobiographical content. I wanted to know how she got to the point where she was selling the Skinny Girl bra As a self help book, this was not the greatest.

    I wanted to know how she got to the point where she was selling the Skinny Girl brand of cocktails for millions of dollars. I believe this book was published right before she made her multi-million dollar deal so that's not quite in the book. But Bethenny's career trajectory is all in the book and it's fascinating.

    She's had at least 4 businesses and she seems to be pretty darn good at spotting a trend and finding a niche. Her career isn't baking or cocktails or event planning. Her career is Bethenny Frankel. SHE is the product that she is selling and she's really good at it. I think her best advice is to have as many irons in the fire at all times as you possibly can. And she doesn't pull any punches about the amount of work that goes into launching a new project.

    It might seem like she got lucky with Skinny Girl Cocktails but it took 20 years of hard work to get that kind of luck. Mar 22, Lindsay rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is part self-help and part biography. It's a great book for anyone who is a fan of Bethenny, if you aren't and are just buying it for the self-help part, I don't think you'll really like it because she talks about her life a lot.

    But I find her interesting. And considering how crappy her childhood was, its quite impressive of where she is now. Most kids now days who's parents got divorce while the child was at a young and then were never around would probably end up in jail or knocked This book is part self-help and part biography. Most kids now days who's parents got divorce while the child was at a young and then were never around would probably end up in jail or knocked up at But Bethenny managed to overcome that and build a business and 'come from a place of yes.

    This book goes though how to break the chain of your past, understand what you dislike about you life and find ways to fix it, how to act now on the things you want, learn to except that it's ok to be different, pretty much everything that you've learn from every other self help book, but I think it was a little bit easier to understand because it was coming from someone who has their own reality show, so you kind of get the feeling that you know them a little.

    At some points I kind of felt like she was using this as a chance to talk about herself instead of using it to help people.
