Summary
"The challenge of being a grown up is to effectively balance the desire for fun and freedom against the responsibilities that come with having a full and productive life. The goal is to be responsible and help others, take good care of yourself and your family, have a fulfilling career and still have a great time enjoying all the benefits and fun times that life has to offer. This book is about maximizing your chances for happiness and success. Stacy is a media darling and can been seen on television several times weekly offering up her take on the latest celeb life drama. As the psychotherapist on both Celebrity Fit Club and Lifetime's DietTribe, she has gained a reputation for helping us face the truth that is holding us back. Stacy is well on her way to becoming the next Dr. Laura as she offers "tough love' but in a fun way. For example, Stacy tells us that is is okay to have baggage but it has to be "carry on" not "check in". As a result of providing therapy for thousands of patients, Stacy identifies ten critical areas that will help readers develop the life skills needed to become a successful, happy, high-functioning adult. The book opens with an innovative quiz (think Real Age) that provides insight into the reader's current level of function in the ten areas followed by chapters devoted to each. While some of these will be familiar (relationships, money management, body image) Stacy's take is fresh and her true gift is her ability to take on life's annoyances and problems with a truthfulness that isn't overwhelming or shaming. She basically presents a roll-up-your sleeves approach and gives you a blueprint to follow"--Provided by publisher
