Goodreads rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Lori Harder is a “leading expert in the field of fitness, transformational work, mindfulness, and self-love,” according to the professional bio on her website. She is also an entrepreneur and network marketer and has appeared on many magazine covers. A Tribe Called Bliss is her first book.
A Tribe Called Bliss was published on May 8, 2018, but I feel like it came out a year ago. I follow Lori and her husband, Chris, on Instagram and listen to their podcasts so I have been hearing about this book for a long time. From what I’ve heard, A Tribe Called Bliss was Lori’s beloved project. There were times where she may have doubted it or she became overwhelmed, but she knew that this book needed to happen. There were situations in the book that other people did not know about and she was nervous to write but she pushed through and shared her story anyway.
Harder’s book is in the self-help category and is meant for women to go through and follow the steps together. There are also solo assignments for the reader to do on their own. Harder explains how to create a tribe and how to have successful meetings with the other women who are in it. You do not need to have a group of women ready to go when you read this though. The book lays the groundwork and you can go back through it with your tribe if you wish.
A Tribe Called Bliss is full of wonderful, motivational and inspiring nuggets of information. She discusses why you need others to help you in your journey, what it means to be authentic, how to handle resistance and so much more. I listened to it on Audible, so I don’t have any good quotes written down but if you physically read the book, there are many great lines to highlight.
Although I seem to only have good things to say about the book, I only gave it 3 stars on Goodreads. I think it’s because it’s more geared towards women entrepreneurs who need a tribe of other women entrepreneurs to hold them accountable and I cannot relate to that in my life right now.
