"You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them!"
In the constant chase for perfection women find themselves worried, anxious, and completely overwhelmed. Working women want to take their careers to the next level, but are struggling to "do it all." Stay-at-home moms look for relief from burning the candle at both ends. Aspiring entrepreneurs and artists seek the courage to jump into a new venture. Make It Happen is the tool these women need to finally let go of the chase for perfection and take the leap of faith towards God's perfect plan.
Author Lara Casey was once a burned-out workaholic buried by debt, depression, and a failing marriage. Now thriving as a wife and mother, and running a booming business that fills her with joy, Lara is on a mission to share her experience and help readers find the spark that lives inside them. "I believe in the impossible. I'm living it," Lara says. "Life is too short to wait to take the leap!"
Written for women who want to do it all and live a life of meaning, Make It Happen rescues them from being overwhelmed by endless to-do lists, paralyzing fears, and other obstacles that stand in the way of cultivating the rich life God desires for them.
With seasoned advice, wisdom, and encouragement, Lara helps them pinpoint what isn't working and how to get there from here so they too can make it happen!

How to Use This Guide
Right off the bat, the first chapter spoke to me...Stop Chasing Perfect. As an admitted perfectionist, I often get bogged down right from the start. I appreciate the Take Actions sections at the end of each chapter. This book is perfect as a personal bible study. It could be used as a group study but I found this book to be very personal and probably is best handled on its own.
This is a great book. It is helping me along the path to be more courageous about the choices I am going to be making over the next little while. Highly recommend.
