About The Book
Recovering cynic Amy Newmark was a crusader for truth on Wall Street, exposing companies that were defrauding investors, but the main emotions she wrote about were fear and greed. But now she and her family own Chicken Soup for the Soul and her life is very different.
Amy’s journey from Wall Street to Main Street has changed her in ways she never anticipated. Now, as author and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul, she covers the whole range of human emotions and finds herself a much more positive and productive person. Still a maverick with an irreverent sense of humor and a penchant for self-deprecating stories about herself and her family, she also synthesizes everything she has learned from reading and editing tens of thousands of Chicken Soup for the Soul stories, and presents her findings to readers.
A keen observer on parenting, love and marriage, positive thinking, working, and relationships, she shares her wisdom, her humor, and her advice in this wide-ranging book, filled with real-life stories and no nonsense, practical tips that readers can actually implement to improve their own lives.

Raves and Reviews
This compilation of lessons from a Wall Street investment banker turned self-help author and publisher will enrich the lives of its readers. Nine years ago, Newmark (Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Less) and her husband, Bill, acquired the ubiquitous Chicken Soup for the Soul franchise. With this book, she aims to help readers enact similarly dramatic life changes. Newmark weaves her stories and those of others into a series of lessons on going easier on yourself, loving your body, pretending to be confident so you eventually come to be so, expecting the best of people, being bold and trusting your instincts, practicing gratitude, enjoying the little things, and living with passion. Newmark adds that “happiness is not a mysterious, elusive lottery ticket” but "a jackpot within everyone's grasp once we remove the obstacles we put in our own paths." Those obstacles also include "frenemies," whom the author advises readers to ditch. Sensible and empowering, Newmark’s work aims to teach others how to live a satisfying life.
