Updated Book Review *The Smart Girl’s Handbook by Scarlett V Clark

I was kindly gifted a copy of  The Smart Girls Handbook, How to Silence Self Doubt, Find Your Purpose, and Redefine the impossible by Welbeck Publishing which is a division of Trigger Publishing. 

I wanted to update the post with a lovely message from Scarlet and to remind you what a great gift her book would make for all the women in your life. 

Hi Melinda,

I am the author of The Smart Girls Handbook and I have to be honest, I cried when I read your review, it’s the first one that came in and you nailed the precise mission I wanted the reader to get out of the book. It would be brilliant to connect further but on launch day (March 4th) I’d love to invite you to share a review on Amazon knowing how inspiring you found it! I really think you could help mothers and other women in purchasing it. My entire business has been built on the idea of women fundamentally deserve more from the media and are fully deserving of living a beautiful life full of confidence, ambition and self-worth. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, Scarlett X CEO/FOUNDER

Recent Reviews

“Sometimes we all need a little guidance, and some tough love, in order to start the journey towards our dreams. In Scarlett’s new “‘Smart Girl Tribe Handbook,” you get that and so much more. She relays stories describing her own experiences that got her where she is today as well as those of other successful women. She provides readers with the tools to tackles their struggles head-on and how to reframe their mindset in order to reach their full potential. I found her book not only inspiring but encouraging for my own path as a writer. I struggle with self-doubt and fear of failure constantly and reading Scarlett’s words reminded me that I can push past these types of obstacles if I just take the first step.”

“What a book!! Have a notebook or poststick notes on hand ladies… You will want to take notes. Brilliantly empowering is all I can say. Some ‘self help’ books can make you feel a little conscious before they make you feel better. This one is like the author herself and smart girl tribe themselves and keeps you uplifted and feeling the powerful woman you are! If you are debating this book stop. Just buy it that’s all!! Separate sections you can refer to over and over again for the future. I think this is going to become a well worn book of mine.”


My Thoughts

The Smart Girl Handbook is for women who are tired of being told what dress size they should be, tired of the negativity surrounding them today including from other women, and for women who want to be their authentic selves. Life happens and it’s not always pretty but with a backbone, determination, and the guidance of The Smart Girl’s Handbook you can come thru unscathed, just slightly bruised but not battered. 

Learn how to not fall into the traps set out there to trip you up. Life around us is very negative, the news outlets, social media, and even toxic friends. You have to learn to rise above the negativity and Scarlett helps you silence your inner mean girl. The Smart Girl Handbook is all the questions you wish you could have asked when younger but had no one or place to turn for the answers. 

I encourage every woman to buy Scarlett’s book, The Smart Girl’s Handbook. Maybe even share one with a friend. This is not your average self-help book that has been regurgitated over and over. She’s witty, original, honest about the problem and how to get the answers. She’s not sharing pie in the sky stories, this is her life, dissected and laid out for you to learn from. I think The Smart Girl book is an excellent primer for moms to help their daughters navigate the rough waters ahead.
