Mega Monday Motivation News: Jeffrey Marsh’s book How to Be You is coming out this week!
As gushed when I received the extraordinary honor to review their book:
The luminous Jeffrey Marsh gifts us all with How to Be You. Expanding from their sparks of online affirmations into an enlightening how-to manual for self-discovery and delight, Jeffrey guides us through the creative, ever-evolving process of understanding and accepting ourselves. Ultimately, they remind us the best person we can become is our self.

AND an additional favorite thing? If you buy the book today, you’re supporting Jeffrey as well as contributing $1 to GLSEN. Buying today supports a trifecta of benefit. In Jeffrey’s words: “I proudly support GLSEN and their mission that every student should be treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. I’m proud to donate $1 from every book sold during pre-sales, from now until August 1, 2016, to GLSEN to further support safe and affirming K-12 schools for all students.”
How to Be You is such a gift of support and sure to be an instant favorite for so many.
