“What’s my purpose” "What if I fail?" “What will other people say?”

Seeking permission keeps us in jobs we hate, relationships that are toxic, and lives we don't want. After quitting her Hollywood dream job, Annie Franceschi is here to give you the pep talk you need to change your life with hard-won personal stories, funny anecdotes, and helpful exercises for finding your purpose. Ready for the motivation to begin a new chapter?
