Born to Shine, by Kendra Scott
- Author: Kendra Scott
For twenty years, Kendra Scott has been known for the eponymous jewelry company she built from a hobby and an idea that developed into a company worth over a billion dollars. She created beautiful pieces with signature-cut natural gemstones packaged in sunny yellow boxes. She may be seen as the woman who has it all: a self-made billionaire, a generous philanthropist, and a mother of three with a squad of strong female friendships.
Sounds perfect, right?
Perfection is a myth that doesn't serve any of us, and encourages us to assume we know what other people are going through, to judge each other on appearances and reputations to present the best versions of ourselves and pretend like we've got it all together even when everything is falling apart. Perfection isn't just a lie, it's exhausting, and Kendra is tired of it.
In this vulnerable, wise, and laugh-out-loud book, Kendra takes readers on a journey of personal stories and hard-earned life lessons, from her humble beginnings as an awkward, bullied young girl in small-town Wisconsin to launching a business in her spare bedroom with $500. With every pitfall, misstep, and failure, Kendra builds a life—and a career—rooted in joy, purpose, and doing good, a life she wants for every reader.
With heart and humor, Kendra reminds us that not all that glitters is gold, and that there is no level of success that can insulate you from what it means to be a human being: that life is as messy as it is magical, that bad things happen to good people for no good reason, and that a good life does not mean a perfect one.
