Book Review: Shonda Rhimes' 'Year of Yes' is full of badassery banter

Year of Yes How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person By Shonda Rhimes - See more at:

"Year of Yes" by Shonda Rhimes is one of my favorite memoirs.

Her writing is heartfelt. For someone who has three ABC shows on air on Thursday nights, she strikes me as someone who is a type-A, outgoing career woman.

After one chapter, you realize: she's as relatable as your closest girlfriend. She draws deep into her own struggles.

Here are my 3 favorite words of wisdom from Shonda Rhimes:

  1. fight for what you want
  2. don't brush off compliments
  3. don't apologize for compliments
