Slow | Live Life Simply | Brooke McAlary | Book Summary

June 30, 2022

From the creator of the award-winning Slow Home podcast comes Slow the perfect companion on the long road to living a simpler and more fulfilled life. 'Dear Mr & Mrs Jones, I am writing to inform you of my withdrawal from the race to keep up with you . . .'

Once upon a time, Brooke McAlary thought she was close to having it all. Married to a wonderful man, mother to a lively young daughter, and pregnant for a second time, she'd acquired all the things she'd once thought important-holidays, cars, a renovated home. Yet despite this, she found herself utterly despondent. Realising that they wanted a simpler, more fulfilling existence, Brooke and her family gradually created their own way of living, with an emphasis on depth, connection and experiences.

In Slow Brooke gently encourages you to find pleasure and value in a simpler life, sharing the practical tips and rituals that have helped her on her own journey, from decluttering to de-owning, messiness to mindfulness, from asking why to asking where to now? Part memoir, part practical companion, Slow provides a fascinating insight into the benefits of slowing down. It will inspire you to forget about the Joneses and create a life filled with the things that really matter to you . . . slowly, of course.

About I'm Byron Morrison. I’m a best-selling author, speaker, and Mindset and High-Performance Coach. And I help CEOs take control of their role so that they can maximize their time, lead with confidence and grow a business without losing their sanity, All this started after my dad’s cancer took me on a journey of transformation, where along the way I became a student of psychology, mindset, health and high-performance.

The more I learned, the more I realized how much the long hours, stress and pressure that came with my dad’s success contributed to him getting sick. And since then I've been on a mission to help others avoid going through what happened to him.

https://www.kateisler.com/

Kate Isler’s incredible story demonstrates how women can stop self-selecting out of opportunities and take the leap of faith to accomplish their dreams. Kate Isler navigated the male-dominated culture of the technology industry, breaking new global markets for Microsoft in their fast-paced, hyper-growth startup years in some of the most challenging regions in the world – all without a college degree or resources that many believe are necessary for success. Kate’s story is a fascinating adventure from her years as a naïve young adult through her unexpected global career at a time when corporations weren’t hiring women to represent their companies overseas. In Breaking Borders, Kate candidly shares: Her moments of success, failure, and very public mistakes. The struggle she faced to pivot her career in a completely new direction. How she overcame the disappointment of a failed startup by channeling her passion for supporting women. Her mission to inspire other women by building Be Bold, a women’s advocacy non-profit, from the ground up. Kate’s story is a guide for women who want to stop self-selecting out of opportunities because they "assume" they don't have the right education, connections, or skills to take a chance.
