Publisher's Summary

Own your screw-ups, get inspired, and create the life you want. 
Sick of chasing the perfect relationship, career, or bank balance? Tired of feeling like you’re never quite "enough"? You’re not alone. And it’s time to do something about it. Smart Girls Screw Up Too is the no-nonsense guide for a generation of women who secretly muse about what might be possible in their careers, health, and relationships but don’t know where to start or are too afraid to. 
When a series of screw-ups found author Bella Zanesco burnt out, depressed, and with a broken soul, she knew something - perhaps everything - had to change. But what? Her first ports of call were the usual Band-Aids: Tinder, work, and shopping. But soon, she realised those weren’t going to work. If she wanted to fix this thing, she was going to need to take extreme measures. 
And so she began the journey that would transform her from "Sad Girl" to "Smart Girl"; a journey that meant taking up all the things that she’d been told were good for her but she had always been too afraid, too "busy", or too lazy to try. Cue everything from green juices to setting boundaries to quitting her job to culling her friends. 
Delivered with no-holds-barred honesty, humour, and compassion, Smart Girls Screw Up Too brings together: the latest research into gut science, neuroscience, and epigenetics; ancient tribal wisdom; interviews with global game changers; and insights from the author’s own two-year study of over 2000 women. Paired with a Personal Life Audit, you will get immediate clarity about where to start when seeking purpose, vitality, and love. And, together with Bella - the wise but ass-kicking bestie you wish you’d known earlier - you’ll embark on a series of simple daily challenges that will not only get you to the root causes of why you think, feel, and behave as you do, but see you making changes that stick. No matter what your starting point, you are capable of creating the life you want now.

Thank you Bella - Smart Girls is brilliant

This book really spoke to me. In true type A style, when it comes to all things personal development, you name I have done it. I have read most of the health and wellbeing books out there and been on countless retreats, yoga teacher trainings and courses - all in the name of my own personal development. Yet, despite this I was still able to find so many new gems in this book. Nuggets of gold I was able to take away and action immediately. The way Bella has not only written this book, but carefully selected the way in which she guides you through each topic is brilliant. The experts she has consulted with are among the best - Im talking Tiffany Cruikshank (yoga and anatomy genius), Ana Forrest (yoga) and Esther Perel (relationship therapist).

I was gifted a copy of this book and read it over the course of a few weeks. It took me a while to work my way through. Not because I wasn't enjoying it, but because I really wanted to stop and participate in the exercises Bella set out at the end of each chapter. I actually ended up downloading the audiobook version so I could enjoy it again, this time on the go (side note, Bella has a super calming voice).

Bella is honest, funny and you really get the sense that she cares about her readers. I have recommended this book to so many friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Bella for writing this one. I hope to read more from you in the future.

Like having your own private coach as co-pilot

I'm a woman's wellness coach and this guide incorporates a lot of the techniques I use with my one-on-one clients, for a much smaller financial investment. It takes a well-rounded, holistic approach to healing and elevating as a woman. It is also beautifully narrated.
Perhaps you also missed your calling as a voice-over artist or actress, Bella! Thanks for sharing your journey. It's a beautiful gift for all of us on this crazy path called being a human.
