Publisher's Summary

Number-One Wall Street Journal Best Seller • New York Times Best Seller • USA Today Best Seller

Are you ready to believe in you?

Game-changing. Authentic. A must-read for every woman! Jamie is the real deal - and that’s rare.” (Glennon Doyle, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Untamed)

“Raw. Real. Powerful. Filled with vulnerability and grit. This book will inspire you to believe in your own power. It’s a book every woman needs!” (Sara Blakely, founder, Spanx)

Imagine overcoming the things holding you back, breaking through the barrier of self-doubt and fully becoming the person you were born to be!

In Believe It, Jamie Kern Lima, founder of IT Cosmetics, shares the wild but true story of how a once struggling waitress turned her against-the-grain idea into an international best-selling sensation, eventually selling the company for more than a billion dollars and becoming the first female CEO of a brand in L’Oréal’s 100+ year history. Faced with self-doubt, body-doubt, God-doubt, down to her last few dollars and told “No one is going to buy makeup from someone who has your body”, Jamie reveals for the first time what really went down, how she almost didn’t make it, how she learned to trust herself, and the powerful lessons you, too, can use to go from underestimated to unstoppable.

With radical vulnerability and honesty, Jamie takes you on a journey through deeply personal stories of heartbreak and resilience - including accidentally finding out she was adopted when she was in her 20s and the reverberations this has had on all aspects of her life. Jamie also pulls back the curtain on her fight to change the beauty industry’s use of unrealistic images, on behalf of all the little girls who are about to start doubting themselves, and all of the grown women who still do.

Spellbinding, riveting, with raw vulnerability and down-to-earth warmth, Believe It shakes your soul and shows you that you, too, have what it takes to believe in yourself, trust yourself, and go from doubting you’re enough to knowing you’re enough! Do you have big goals, hopes, and dreams but let rejection get in the way? Do you struggle with feeling like you’re not enough and like success is something that happens to other people, but have a hard time believing it’s possible for you? Do you let past mistakes and failures hold you back? Do you know deep down inside that you were created for more, but somehow still doubt yourself?

In Believe It you’ll discover how to...

  • Overcome self-doubt
  • Gain the courage to take risks and empower yourself and others
  • Tune into and trust your own intuition
  • Let go of your mistakes and insecurities
  • Turn down the volume on your inner critic
  • Handle the rejection, the haters, and the mean girls
  • Boost your confidence
  • Start your dream (and keep going!)
  • And much more

If you’ve ever doubted yourself or felt truly underestimated, this book will inspire a new kind of belief and confidence in you and your dreams!

Uninspired

I really like Jamie and had high hopes for this. i found the book a little dull and lacking in any practical tips. Just a string of personal stories which I struggled to finish
