About this deal

Life will always have ebbs and flows and being honest about these and using over communication to ensure everyone is aware of what is happening resonated with me, as often it's through communication (or lack thereof/breakdown in communication) that the problems arise. There is mention of some wide-reaching advice which should appeal to the typical reader, but these came almost as an after thought at the end of most chapters, as opposed to her own story and experiences woven around the advice that is promised on the cover. An advocate of British design and arts Anya is NED of the British Fashion Council, and Emeritus Trustee of the Royal Academy of Arts and the Design Museum.

And it’s with this honest and open approach that she goes on to detail her battles with anxiety and her life spent building a business. It helps to come back to a good book after a long day, which looks and feels like a warm sunshine company and you don’t mind spending some alone time with it.

I’m not sure anyone can live life at this pace and altitude and not experience anxiety, self doubt and severe jet lag. Anya talks about her journey as a businesswoman and a designer, her life experiences, she shares what she has learned and wants to pass on, from to-do lists to balancing work life and personal life, to telling you to just go for it. It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

On the other hand if you’re feeling mentally strong but overwhelmed, lacking in motivation or paralysed by self doubt, then taking guidance from someone who’s been there, done it and got the handbag could be all the help you need. Anya reflects on her ambitions for her children and concludes: "If you just love your children to bits and make them feel incredible and confident then that's the greatest gift you can give them" Such a powerful statement as we often feel we need to provide criticism to help progress, but forget each of us have our own inner critic that's doing a great job at that already.Years spent working from the kitchen table, cash flow issues and the realisation that when problems arise at work, she finds it hard to be mentally present at home. She really loves her children and a large part of her life is spent making sure how they are all safe, cared for and know that they are loved. The book is nothing startling or new and a bit too much about motherhood for me (not to mention slightly middle class) but it was pleasant enough.
