“Oh, to have had this book when I was in my 20s! Katina is Saturday night, Sunday brunch, and Monday morning rolled up into one: that unicorn friend with whom you can party all night, share your deepest insecurities, and get down to the nitty-gritty on money and career. I hope that my mentees, younger cousins, and friends' Millennial kids have a Katina in their life; even if they do, I'm buying this book for them. In fact, I'm keeping a copy for myself, because the questions and exercises in On Adulting are ones that all of us should be exploring—no matter what our age and stage.”
—Christine Bader, author, The Evolution of a Corporate Idealist: When Girl Meets Oil
"With clarity and compassion, Katina Mountanos digs deep into the pressing issues that millennials are facing today. This book is an invitation to take a closer go beyond what’s holding us back in pursuit of sustainable growth."
—Morgan Harper Nichols, artist, poet, and author of All Along You Were Blooming: Thoughts For Boundless Living
"This book is refreshingly honest and I think goes straight to the heart of the anxiety and fear that many young people feel. Written with authenticity and wry sense of humor, it offers real, concrete tactics to help you face your fears and get past them. I've been an adult for 30 years, and it was still an enjoyable read."
—Celeste Headlee, journalist, TED speaker, and best-selling author of Do Nothing: How To Break Away From Overworking, Overdoing and Underliving
"Katina Mountanos offers a candid personal assessment of the structural roadblocks of modern life through her personal lens. On Adulting is a roadmap and an invitation to take off the training wheels and get off the hamster wheel of life that imprisons so many miserably 'successful' people."
—Craig Hatkoff, Co-founder: Tribeca Film Festival; Co-founder: Disruptor Foundation; New York Times bestselling children's book author
"Reading Katina's wise and wonderful book, On Adulting, is like having a best friend who is a little older, a little wiser, and knows exactly how to help you thrive."
