Hi, I’m Branden. That is me on the cover.
Yes, I have a boy’s name, a Mom bod, and the tattoos are not photoshopped.
Once upon a time I realized we all have a story, we all have a struggle and happiness is relative. I am not cynical or hardened, I am just stating the facts. Here’s the deal:

  • Prince Charming doesn’t exist.
  • Fairy Godmother is drunk.
  • Glass slippers don’t come 2 Day Prime Shipping from Amazon.

There is no magic fairytale, but if YOU work at it enough you can come pretty close creating your version with a happy ending. The best part is, in life you can continue to make edits until that sh*t reads exactly how you want it to.

You may not agree with everything I say in this book but the most important takeaway is that YOU have to be your own f-ing hero. No more damsel locked in a tower, bullsh*t. That ends now. Join me as I take you through my 7 Magical Maxims for creating a fairytale life. (I know what you are thinking: Branden, no one gets a fairytale life.) Can you stop being so damn cynical for two seconds and just go with this?

Is it possible to design a fairytale life? Control your destiny? Be the hero in your story? I believe you can and that’s why I wrote this book. I am going to make you a little uncomfortable. Back out now if you aren’t ready.
Sh*t is about to get real bitches…

REVIEW

Once Upon a Time Bitches is written in a motivated, no nonsense, blunt, way. Her advice is practical and doable. There is a lot of cursing – but in a totally appropriate way (however, if you’re opposed to cursing, this book isn’t for you). This is a self-help book that guides you to control your destiny. It’s written in a non-preachy, down to earth, fun way. It’s okay to be a hot mess. Success is different for everyone. Most importantly, success for you is whatever YOU say it is. As she outlines her 7 Maxims (truths) she encourages you to create a better life for yourself. A big takeaway for me is the section on your Quest for Joy, comparing happiness versus joy. A fun, encouraging, inspiring read.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

69803504_106403494080752_28966066898075648_nIt’s amazing to me that I am writing this Author Page bio because the truth is, I give almost everything to my kids. (I’m a Mama to six C-section babies ages 1-16!) My husband gets a sliver after “almost”… then what’s left is used to run a business, coach people who want to be in business, and oh yeah, write a book!

Truly, writing a book is a lifelong dream come true.

It all started when I was coaching a small group of women, and everyone gathered around and the words, “Once Upon a Time, Bitches…” spilled from my lips. Everyone thought it was funny and so did I. As I got to thinking about it, it seemed like the perfect title for the message I wanted to share which is all about saving yourself. (Newsflash: “Prince Charming” is not coming, even though my husband is about as close as you can get!)

When I pitched the title on a phone call to my now publisher, they loved it and they believed in me. What I learned from that is, you never really know “how” things are going to happen, but when you show the f-up, you have a chance. That’s why I do what I do. I want to help other women become the hero in their story and write the HEA ending that they want. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to have a sip wine, move the clothes from the washer into the dryer, and find out which kid is screaming and why. (Or is that my husband?)
