#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the People’s Choice Award winner for Favorite YouTube Star comes the perfect graduation gift for every aspiring bawse who’s fought through it all and made it out the other side.
Lilly Singh isn’t just a superstar. She’s Superwoman—which is... also the name of her wildly popular YouTube channel. Funny, smart, and insightful, the actress and comedian covers topics ranging from relationships to career choices to everyday annoyances. It’s no wonder she’s garnered more than a billion views. But Lilly didn’t get to the top by being lucky—she had to work for it. Hard.
Now Lilly wants to share the lessons she learned while taking the world by storm, and the tools she used to do it. How to Be a Bawse is the definitive guide to conquering life. Make no mistake, there are no shortcuts to success, personal or professional. World domination requires real effort, dedication, and determination. Just consider Lilly a personal trainer for your life—with fifty rules to get you in the game, including
• Let Go of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out): Temptation will try to steer you away from your goals. FOMO is just a test of your priorities, a test that a bawse is ready to pass.
• Be Nice to People: Treat niceness like an item on your daily to-do list. People will go out of their way to help and support you because you make them feel good.
• Schedule Inspiration: Lack of motivation isn’t permanent or a sign of weakness. Expect it and proactively schedule time to be creative.
• Be the Dumbest: Challenge yourself by surrounding yourself with people who know more than you do. It’s a vital way to learn and improve.
Told in Lilly’s hilarious, bold voice and packed with photos and candid stories from her journey to the top, How to Be a Bawse will make you love your life and yourself—even more than you love Beyoncé. (Yes, we said it!)
WARNING: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms, or cute quotes. That’s because success, happiness, and everything else you want in life need to be worked for, not wished for. In Lilly’s world, there are no escalators, only stairs. Get ready to climb.
Praise for How to Be a Bawse
“Singh segues from her inspirational and uber-watched YouTube videos to essays on how to become a bawse, that is, a supremely self-confident person. She’s been named one of Time’s 2016 ‘30 Most Influential People on the Internet,’ Variety’s ‘10 Comics To Watch for 2016,’ Forbes’s ‘30 Under 30,’ Vogue’s ‘8 YouTube Stars That Are Taking Over the World,’ and more.”—Library Journal
“Lilly is a bona fide #girlboss, boss, and bawse. Her meteoric rise has come with so many incredible lessons that we are all lucky to have access to. This book is a must-have for the hustler in all of us.”—Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO, Girlboss
The larger-than-life YouTube personality best known as "Superwoman" draws on stories from her own life to share inspirational advice for fighting for one's dreams by working hard and embracing dedicated, uncompromising approaches to personal success.
"Lilly Singh skriver lige så sjovt som hun agerer i sine videoer! Hun er en perle, og det skinner gennem på siderne. Der ligges ikke fingre imellem, og ikke noget "bare vær dig selv, så vil alle elske dig"-sludder. Det lyder måske lidt kynisk at formulere det sådan, men Lilly kommer med oprigtige råd til, hvordan man kan få hverdagen og fremtiden til at blive stabil og fungere. Hvordan man når fra Comfort til Succes (waddup video reference!)."
"Wow må jeg da sige. Den er super god, derfor får den 5/5 stjerner. Den er virkelig god til personer, som vil have hele deres liv vendt på hovedet, så man ser på verdenen med andre øjne. Eller for den sags skyld alle mennesker, der vil have klarhed i sindet. Anbefalet klart! "
