Handle the Horrible
Chasta Hamilton
Entrepreneur and author of Trash the Trophies Chasta Hamilton dispels the widely accepted notion that confidence and courage are the end-all be-all in her new book, Handle the Horrible. Analyzing the link between courage, confidence and failure, Hamilton explores the value such a relationship brings to the table and how it can prepare us for moments of tribulation, chaos and change. Utilizing her experiences as a female CEO, dancer, orphan and mother, Hamilton takes readers on a journey of attaining resilience and hope. Fall inspiration, found.

Oh, Lords! Who We Date, Why We Date Them and What We’ve Learned
Jes Averhart and Terresa Zimmerman
Entrepreneurs, authors and NC locals Jes Averhart and Terresa Zimmerman were tired of the dating scene (um, who else can relate?!) when they decided to sit down and write this ode to dating. The two former self-proclaimed “daters” advise on how to be authentically you while searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Promising to be simultaneously direct and vulnerable through the sharing of their own crazy dating stories, Averhart and Zimmerman introduce readers to the “lords” they’ve met along their journey and teach other daters how to stop making the same repeated mistakes.
