#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the People’s Choice Award winner for Favorite YouTube Star and host of NBC’s A Little Late with Lilly Singh comes the definitive guide to being a bawse: a person who exudes confidence, hustles relentlessly, and smiles genuinely because he or she has fought through it all and made it out the other side.

Lilly Singh isn’t just a superstar. She’s Superwoman—which is also the name of her wildly popular YouTube channel. Funny, smart, and insightful, the actress and comedian covers topics ranging from relationships to career choices to everyday annoyances. It’s no wonder she’s garnered more than a billion views. But Lilly didn’t get to the top by being lucky—she had to work for it. Hard.

Now Lilly wants to share the lessons she learned while taking the world by storm, and the tools she used to do it. How to Be a Bawse is the definitive guide to conquering life. Make no mistake, there are no shortcuts to success, personal or professional. World domination requires real effort, dedication, and determination. Just consider Lilly a personal trainer for your life—with fifty rules to get you in the game, including

• Let Go of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out): Temptation will try to steer you away from your goals. FOMO is just a test of your priorities, a test that a bawse is ready to pass.
• Be Nice to People: Treat niceness like an item on your daily to-do list. People will go out of their way to help and support you because you make them feel good.
• Schedule Inspiration: Lack of motivation isn’t permanent or a sign of weakness. Expect it and proactively schedule time to be creative.
• Be the Dumbest: Challenge yourself by surrounding yourself with people who know more than you do. It’s a vital way to learn and improve.

Told in Lilly’s hilarious, bold voice and packed with photos and candid stories from her journey to the top, How to Be a Bawse will make you love your life and yourself—even more than you love Beyoncé. (Yes, we said it!)

WARNING: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms, or cute quotes. That’s because success, happiness, and everything else you want in life need to be worked for, not wished for. In Lilly’s world, there are no escalators, only stairs. Get ready to climb.

“Lilly is a bona fide #girlboss, boss, and bawse. Her meteoric rise has come with so many incredible lessons that we are all lucky to have access to. This book is a must-have for the hustler in all of us.”—Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO, Girlboss

This was an absolutely inspiring book! As someone who copes with bipolar disorder, "How to Be a Bawse" was a shining light on my darkest of days. I am so glad that I got the audiobook. It was like Lilly was here with me, giving me the support I needed to push forward. There have been days where I didn't even want to get out of bed, but then I would just turn on Lilly's book, and I would naturally do something productive as I listened, making me take action toward creating a better life for myself. I am so grateful for this book's existence, and I am glad that I invested in myself by purchasing this book!

Yes is your answer, yes this is an AMAZING book!!! Lilly is so inspiring and honest. Now when I go to a sport competition or even school I see things so different and I'm way more self confident in my opinions and body. And yes this is funny like her videos but it's different, like that video when she answers a question then eats a tomato in pain, it's like that but no tomatoes, pain, or strange questions????. Hope you get and read this book!!!!!!!
