‘I feel like Kate James’ book was written purely for me. It is exactly what I needed moving forward with business and personal goals. The way she has written engages you from it’s opening, draws you in, makes you feel like you are having a conversation with a wise and intuitive friend. The language and the way Kate speaks to you allows you to feel that it is okay to have self doubt or no routine but then in the same breath inspires you to be the best version of you that you can be. Absolute hands down the best self motivating book I have read in a long time. Kate is incredibly inspiring, kind, gentle and a salt of the earth person who you want to spend time with. Believe in Yourself & Do What You Love will be my pick me up bible.’ Nikki Buckland, Paper Runway
