What would have made The Glitter Plan better?
Ok, I had just finished #girlboss and was eager to find another inspiring read. I saw this one had good reviews, so I went for it. Once I start a book, I can't leave it unfinished and this ended up being a very painful 10 hours.
First of all, it's very poorly written. Like, high school essay level. I don't know if they really are as ditzy as this writing makes them sound ... I hope not.Next, the person who reads it is beyond annoying. Poor cadence, odd pronunciations ... if I have to hear her say "entrepreneur" so weirdly one more time ... ugh.
Nothing that was said was something that was helpful. According to these women they: invented the concept of sending celebrities clothes, are responsible for today's perfume bottle designs, were the first designers to throw a fun fashion launch party, etc. So ridiculous. And the definitions they give you are beyond elementary terms that everyone who takes themselves seriously should know. "No, 'marketing' isn't spending a day Whole Foods, it's how people find out about your brand." Please.
I also don't take them as the representation of the kind of businesswoman I strive to be. Rather than the empowering "women can do anything" message of #girlboss, this book literally told me to "play naive or just be a girl" when it comes to an unfamiliar situation. I audibly scoffed at that point.
Don't waste your time.

This book was awesome. I loved the fashion biz insight as well as, the genuine fun expressed by the narrow reader. Great book for new designers with a dream.
