Summary

Read by the author.

Whether you’re facing the glass ceiling, a toxic work environment, or anything in between, limit-breaking female founder Heather Monahan’s 3-Step BAK process will help you evaluate and eliminate any outside or self-defeating blockers between where you are now and where you deserve to be.

If you’ve ever felt alone, down, defeated, or discouraged - this book’s for you.

If you’ve ever been unsure of your next move or felt your confidence slip just when you needed it the most - this book is definitely for you.

Author and entrepreneur Heather Monahan will help you learn the easy but remarkable steps you can take to overcome the negative people and other challenges we all encounter at work and at home, find real and lasting happiness, and achieve the success you deserve in your career and in your personal life.

Growing up in poverty, Heather leapfrogged the tremendous obstacles in her life to reach the pinnacle of success in business - only to lose it all when she was fired by the villain who was her new boss. She has seen the worst of the worst when it comes to the destruction a toxic workplace can have on someone’s perception of themselves and their outlook for the future. In this book, she lights the beacon on your path toward stepping into and then stomping out your fear to reach your full potential - regardless of the level of trauma you’ve experienced or are currently experiencing in your workplace.

Overcome Your Villains will help you learn:

  • Heather’s 3-Step BAK process to evaluate your situation and identify a clear path forward.
  • How to deal with (or overcome) a toxic environment, whether that be at work, at home, or in your own head.

All the options you have to reach your full potential, and how to immediately start pursuing them.

Accompanying exercises and links are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Good points but kind of meh...

found myself often eyerolling and feeling frustrated at the level of ego at times. I acknowledge that might be something as women we are conditioned to feeling and thinking about other women. I am already well accomplished and self assured in my own way, and many of her points were spot on. yet at times I felt annoyed by what comes off as privilege and entitlement in this book. I wonder if the "average Jane" will find this relatable? Inspiring perhaps. I took away good and fair points, but it isn't making my "must read" share list with friends and peers which is unfortunate because I had wanted to really like this and have "YES!!!" moments.

Parallel Lives

Thank you for being so open and honest about your experiences. I am sure I am not the only woman who feels like she has lived similar stories to Heather. When you don’t feel alone in your daily journey, it gives you the motivation to be all that you are meant to be. This is an inspiring read for both women and men.

Excellent, excellent, excellent book delivered by Audible, with the author Heather reading to you, is incredible!

It’s as if Heather just gave me over six hours of personal coaching development!

I highly recommend anyone interested in this book, to not only purchase it by listening to Heather read it to you through Audible, but also purchase the hardcopy to reference back to.

I can’t wait Heather for your next book to be published! -Deb Curtis

PERFECT TIMING

I stumbled across this book at the perfect time in my career. I just started reporting to a totally narcissistic boss who had been with the company for nine months when I’d been there nine years! He spoke to me in a way no other employer had ever done before. I knew he didn’t like me (with NO valid reason) and that my days were numbered. But I loved my job, my co-workers and my team and I knew I wasn’t going to go willingly. So, today, he fired me AND offered to help me find another job!
Because I am well into this amazing book, I already had the understanding and confidence to withstand what I knew was coming. Had this happened before I listened to Heather’s book, I would have been devastated and felt like such a failure. But I can say that after reading/listening to Heather’s book, I’M GOING TO BE JUST FINE! I know this isn’t because of anything I did but because of who HE is. Now let him deal with the fallout… I’ll be over here handling my business. Thank you, Heather, for putting the words on paper that we just need to hear sometimes to realize that being fired is not failure… and sometimes it’s just a push to get busy finding our next best thing! This book is fantastic and I highly recommend for anyone dealing with a stressful or narcissistic employer.

It’s the equivalent of an double shot confidence espresso

Reading this book was like reading my own thoughts the author’s humility and authenticity is so endearing. You have no choice but to relate to the premise because it has happened to you. I highly recommend anyone to read this there’s no “qualifier “ of … someone with ADD or someone that’s been through hard times or someone that has (Insert anything here). you just need to read this book and learn how to keep kick the villains out of your life and more importantly out of your head!

Fabulous and Connected

So relatable in a time that I share some of the same struggles that Heather shared with us. Connection is key to motivate and inspire, Heather did a great job making that connection in this book.
