Reader feedback is an author’s best friend – it helps us know if we’ve hit the mark. And I’ve been delighted with the early reader feedback I’ve received!
If you have read the book, I’d love to hear what you think. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Who would you recommend it to? What would make it even better? Send me an email with your thoughts.

Sometimes you meet people that you feel genuinely honoured to know. Who just make every encounter a delight.
Daria is one of those for me!
Super excited to have been there to celebrate the launch of Daria’s first book ‘Unleash Your Awesome’ – an incredible handbook to help you get clarity on what you love, what you’re great at, and how you can achieve more without sacrificing your wellbeing.
In the course of coaching Daria, she gave me the opportunity to also be coached by her through her unique strengths-based approach. In her wise and insightful way, Daria led me not only to uncover my own strengths and own those, but also helped me to see where there were things I was doing (even doing well) that didn’t light my fire.
What was probably the most valuable for me, however, was seeing where I was over-playing certain strengths. And Daria had simple, yet completely personalised suggestions at the ready to help me right the balance.
Honestly, Daria’s expertise and fluency with this stuff is incredible to witness and while I was incredibly lucky to have the experience of coaching from her first-hand, I can also vouch for the fact that all of that wisdom and insight – as well as her warmth and sparkle – are captured incredibly in her book. It truly is the next best thing to getting one-on-one with her!
Daria, I am so proud of you and what you’ve created here – I can’t wait to see the impact this has!
Spoiler alert: raving fan-girl post ahead!
For those who know me, I’m super passionate (like an excited Tigger) when it comes to helping others live longer, happier and healthier lives. And I’m continue to learn more about how I can make a meaningful difference for others and transform lives in meaningful ways. After all, we are all a ‘work in progress’, right?
Growing our self awareness and connecting to our future selves (what kind of person we want to be) is so empowering.
So imagine how excited I was to receive a special advance copy of Unleash Your Awesome which has not even been released yet! I’ve been working with @dariawilliamson for a few years now, and I’ve been learning how to focus less on my weaknesses and harness more of my strengths.
As a personal strengths expert and coach, Daria has helped me discover and leverage the things that I’m good at AND enjoy doing (my ‘zone of genius’), while helping me make smarter decisions around the things that I’m NOT good at or don’t enjoy doing. This ongoing journey is nothing short of transformative. (Just ask my friends – apparently I’m far more effective, energised and happier than I was just a few years ago when I was operating from a ‘zone of indifference’).
Now that Daria has developed a really practical handbook to help more people live and work from their “zone of genius”, I have the strategies and tools at my fingertips so I can “unleash my awesome” more often, more wisely, and with greater confidence.
As she says, “it only works if you do”. Things don’t change when we are passive. So imagine what things could be like if we were all able to unleash our awesome more often.
The official launch of Unleash Your Awesome is Feb 18th, and you can find out more here: https://lnkd.in/gf669QAM
(disclaimer: this is an un-sponsored post. I ordered and paid for the book as soon as I heard about it. I’m unashamedly a huge advocate for personal strengths coaching and the impact that Daria has on people she works with)

“I’m already 1/3 through the book and really enjoying its clarity, speed, and language!” AB
“Congratulations. Love your book!!!” JS
“I found it engaging, with the right combination of examples, references and real life experiences to illustrate the points, without being laborious. Couldn’t think of a more perfect title either – so inspiring and inviting” SW
“Love the conversational tone – it feels friendly and supportive. You’ve obviously given a lot of consideration to the different ways people might interpret the exercises or where they might get ‘stuck’.” CN
