This week features the next installment in our recurring “Productive Reading” series, this time talking about key takeaways from Life Makeover, written by longtime Houston television news anchor Dominique Sachse.
It's never too late to make a bold move (or 2) order to make our life more meaningful
This week we are continuing our Productive Reading recurring series. In the past, we’ve talked about the lessons and key takeaways I found in books such as Gary Keller’s The ONE Thing (episode 133), The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg (episode 147), 3 books written by Brené Brown (episode 166), Soulful Simplicity, by Courtney Carver (episode 182), The Free-Time Formula by Jeff Sanders (episode 211), James Clear’s wonderful Atomic Habits (episode 230), Free to Focus, by Michael Hyatt (episode 250), Attention Management, by Maura Nevel Thomas (episode 271), The Minimalist Home, by Joshua Becker (episode 324), Effortless, by Greg McKeown (episode 349), and Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism (episode 366).
This time I’m sharing some of my most important takeaways from a new book by Houston native, journalist, and YouTuber Dominique Sachse.
Who is Dominique Sachse?
From the book's cover flap copy:
“Dominique Sachse is an Emmy Award-winning journalist who anchored the news for KPRC in Houston, Texas, for nearly twenty-eight years. Beginning her career as a traffic reporter and working her way up to the anchor desk, she quickly became a role model for women. In 2014, she launched her YouTube channel as a place to offer fashion, beauty, and lifestyle tips for women in their prime, and the response was enormous. Today she has nearly 2 million subscribers. She balances her YouTube channel, content creation, and social media encouragement with her own practice of self-care, family commitments, and charity events.”
Why did I read this book?
I found Dominique’s YouTube channel a year or so ago and have enjoyed her mix of beauty, self-care, and mindset topics and found them encouraging. Unlike many so-called lifestyle influencers on YT, she focuses her channel on offering tips and encouragement to women "of a certain age," and I appreciate her transparency and positive approach.
