"A must-read for any woman who is ready to design a life on her own terms.” – Sophia Amoruso, Founder and CEO, Girlboss

Women: it’s time to break the good girl myths that are holding you back and share your true gifts with this groundbreaking book from Stanford University-trained designer and women’s leadership expert Majo Molfino.

For thousands of years, women have been taught to be “good” instead of powerful. But when we embody the good girl, we hold back their voices and gifts in a world that desperately needs female perspectives. 

Drawing on countless coaching sessions and conversations with female leaders, Majo identifies five self-sabotaging tendencies (“the five Good Girl Myths”) every woman must overcome to unleash her power and design a more purposeful life: 

  1. The Myth of Rules
  2. The Myth of Perfection
  3. The Myth of Logic
  4. The Myth of Harmony
  5. The Myth of Sacrifice

While there are many women’s leadership books, Majo uses her knowledge and training in design thinking (which is used by the world’s most innovative people and companies) to help you build creative confidence and break free from these disempowering myths once and for all. 

Discover how each myth negatively affects your relationships, career, and well-being and identify your primary good girl myth – the blindspot that’s zapping most of your power as a creative badass. 

If you’re a woman who can’t seem to get your voice or ideas out into the world, Break the Good Girl Myth will finally help you understand why and light the way out so you can become the woman you’re meant to be.  

Your time – our time – is now. 

Majo Molfino is the host of the Heroine podcast and her work has been featured in Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, FastCoDesign, Man Repeller, Levo League, Career Contessa, and 99U. She has a master’s degree in learning, design, and technology from Stanford Unversity and a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in cultural studies from McGill University. When she isn’t writing or podcasting, she’s sipping on tea in the Californian Redwoods with her husband Enrique. She lives in San Francisco.
