What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Like She Owns the Place written and read by Cara Alwill Leyba.

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you abandoned the idea of perfection and decided to embrace your whole self – and even better – love yourself?

Imagine if you stopped putting your happiness in the hands of others. Imagine you stopped waiting for validation from external forces and learnt how to be intimate with failure, cellulite, success, wrinkles, imperfection, mistakes, vulnerability. Imagine what life would be like if you just decided to feel good now.

In Like She Owns the Place, master life coach and motivational speaker Cara Alwill Leyba teaches you that confidence is all about knowing yourself. Leyba lays down the foundations to help you build confidence from the ground up which include ditching the idea of winning, editing toxic people and habits from your life and embracing the achievements of other women.

Follow Cara’s advice and you’ll be walking into every room like you own the place.

Critics Review

  • Cara delivers a Sex and The City, no BS, approach to confidence, self-love and entrepreneurship. Her personal story is relatable and her writing style is witty. A highly recommended guide for anyone wanting to raise their vibe and elevate their life!

  • Cara Alwill Leyba is the epitome of a modern, self-made woman. She knew what she wanted from life, and has worked hard to get it, in spite of stumbling blocks which would have made others give up before they even started. In Girl Code Cara proved her expertise on the subject of starting a new business, and with Like She Owns the Place she shows her understanding of female insecurity, and provides actionable advice to achieve your own personal highest potential.’

  • Not only does Cara Alwill Leyba inspire women all over the world, she’s also a damn good writer. Naturally, Like She Owns The Place doesn’t disappoint.

Truly, Cara is a shining example of what happens when women support women
