I just worked through another indie book, the Ultimate Brag Book About Yourself, by Marla J. Albertie, and I wanted to let you know my thoughts. I love reading and writing, and this book is a great way to prompt you to write and explore some avenues you may not have considered traveling down. If you like question-and-answer prompts, then this book might be for you. Be sure to listen to my review by clicking on the image, and let me know in the comments if you decide to give it some space in your collection of books.
About the Author
Marla J. Albertie has lived on board a United States carrier; therefore, she feels she is unstoppable. As a native of Jacksonville, Florida, she loves to read, travel, and shop. Her travels have been on cruises, as she has taken 16 thus far. Marla believes life is a journey, and we all can create the life we want, so why not; you only live this life once. She is passionate about seeing growth in peoples’ lives and wants others to pay it forward.
As an energetic visionary, she owns and founded the TruthSpeaksGroup LLC, a multi-media company that creates strategies and solutions for work-life integration/harmony (WLI/H). She is also the founder of MJA Notary Services LLC., MJA Publishing LLC., and JEMA Holdings LLC., and Being the founder of I/O for Teens Inc. is her greatest work yet!
Marla doesn’t believe in work-life balance as she believes all areas of our lives can be integrated and we can create harmony in our lives by means of I/O Psychology and Positive Psychology methodologies.
However, harmony cannot happen if we are not in tune with who we are. Therefore “The Ultimate Brag Book” was born.
Marla’s mantra is to #TeachTrainEducate working women who desire to understand their truth and live a life of success defined on their terms.
Marla's one-word philosophy is #Learn.
