Review & Thoughts
Girl Code by Cara Alwill Leyba
Girl Code was an inspirational read and a good option if you’re looking for an easy read to help spark motivation. My biggest take away was the importance of authenticity and the idea that empowered women empower women. I enjoyed the inspirational interviews in each chapter with different perspectives from equally impressive women.
Many of the inspirational concepts came from the collaborations the author created through the interviews she shares. I didn’t feel like I learned something new but I certainly felt drawn to the author’s voice and perspective and her book left me feeling inspired to find a girl squad.
One of my favorite quotes: You never know whose life you can change by sharing your story and your authentic self. Your honesty and willingness to share can help someone feel less alone, more understood, and inspired beyond words.

Book Blurb: I am witnessing a phenomenon. It seems as though a growing group women entrepreneurs all around the world has discovered the secret to success and happiness in both their lives and careers. It’s almost as though there is a hidden, underground world of power playing females who have all cracked a magical code: they think positively, they support one another, and they truly believe they can have it all -and you can, too.
There is something dynamic that happens when women genuinely show up for each other. When we lose the facades, when we cut the bullsh*t, and when we truly have each others backs. When we stop pretending everything is perfect, and we show the messy, beautiful parts of ourselves and our work that all look awfully similar. When we talk about our fears, our missteps, and our breakdowns. And most importantly, when we share our celebrations, our breakthroughs, and dish on what works. There is no reason to hoard information, connections, or insight. Wisdom is meant to be shared, so let’s start sharing what we’ve learned to make each other better. Let’s start building each other up. Let’s live up to our potential and start ruling the world.
GIRL CODE is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, “side hustlers” (those with a day job who are building a business on the side), and anyone in between who wants to become a better woman. This book will not teach you how to build a multimillion dollar business. It won’t teach you about systems or operational processes. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your “why,” eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, that’s what life and business is all about.
