Who wants to be that?
When Kelly Cutrones first book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside, was first published, young people flocked to this new voicefinally, someone was telling it like it is, in language they spoke. It quickly became a New York Times bestseller, and fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone became more than a personality, she became a beloved guru, mentor, and fairy godmother.
Now shes back with another no-holds-barred book to awaken our souls and kick our asses into gear. With Normal Gets You Nowhere, she invites us to get our freak on. History is full of successful, world-changing people who did not fit in. Think Nelson Mandela, Joan of Arc, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, John Lennon, and Rosa Parks. Instead of changing themselves to accommodate the status quo or what others thought they should be, these people hung a light on their differences and changed humanity in the process.
I know you dont feel normal, so why are you trying to act it and prove to everyone you are? Cutrone says. So much of what we say or dont say, and what we do or dont do, is dictated by what others have told us, or what people may think of us. This is not how we should be living, by measuring ourselves against the mundane.
An invitation to rethink who you are, what you value, and what you want from life, Normal Gets You Nowhere goes beyond how to reinvent yourself and create your own brand, and investigates what it means to live in this world as a tuned-in, caring individual with a passion for making a difference. Theres already an army of super talented uberfreaks changing the worldisnt it time you joined them?
Kelly Cutrone is the CEO and founder of People's Revolution, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "If You Have to Cry", "Go Outside", a television personality, and mother to nine-year-old Ava.
