On Your Reading List
In this thought-provoking read, Hollywood writer and director Shonda Rhimes, shares how a year of saying yes changed her life.
Even with three hit shows on television, Rhimes is a born introvert and at one time, lived her life saying no more than she said yes. But then she decided to make a change. By simply saying yes, more than no, Rhimes discovered the profound impact this would have. You will be inspired as Rhimes reveals how saying yes changed – and saved – her life.
