Summary

Summary

New York Times bestseller

An entertaining, humorous, and inspirational memoir—think #GirlBoss meets Furiously Happy—about harnessing your creativity and embracing your flaws to reach your goals.

With humor and heart, Ban.do founder Jen Gotch shares the empowering story of her unlikely journey to becoming the creator and CCO of a multimillion-dollar brand. From her childhood in Florida where her early struggles with bipolar disorder were misdiagnosed, to her winding career path as a waitress, photographer, food stylist, and finally, entrepreneur with no business experience, she illuminates how embracing her flaws and understanding the influence of mental illness on her creativity actually led to her greatest successes in business and life.

Hilarious, charming, and filled with fascinating insights from her hard-won experience as a true creative and a visionary businesswoman, Gotch’s inspirational memoir dares readers to live each day with hope, optimism, kindness, and humor.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jen is my hero, because she’s not afraid to tell the messy truth about entrepreneurship, business, love, and mental health and how it’s okay to not always be okay. I loved this book as much as I love sequins, confetti, and pizza.” Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author
“Gotch is unequivocal in delivering her message that mental health is every bit as important as physical health, and her often humorous delivery underscores her belief that sometimes a laugh truly is the best medicine.” Publishers Weekly

Author Bio: Jen Gotch

Author Bio: Jen Gotch

Jen Gotch is genetically predisposed to optimism. A creative powerhouse and mental health advocate, she founded Ban.do with a friend in 2008, and with no prior business experience, was able to transform it from a small, vintage, one-of-a-kind hair accessories company into a multimillion-dollar brand within years. After a long (and winding) road of jobs that led her to where she is today, she’s now the chief creative officer and fearless leader of the Ban.do team. She’s passionate about sharing her experience in both business and life in a candid and lighthearted way in order to help others build their own self-awareness and emotional intelligence and most of all to help them feel less alone.
