“How to Create Your Dream Life + Feeling Ready is B.S.”

Written by: Abbi Miller and Ksenia Avdulova

First of all, lets chat a little bit about the co-writer Abbi Miller. Abbi is one of our CityShape Perks Partners and an amazing light in this world. If you don’t follow her through her website, Instagram, or Facebook…you should! Abbi is a holistic nutritionist and yoga teacher. She inspires us through her positivity, passion for health and wellness, and overall biz babe badassness. Her Biz Babe co-writer Ksensia is pretty amazing as well! You can check her out here!

We had been hearing about Abbi’s Biz Babe Workbook for awhile now and finally got the chance to read it! The first things we noticed about this book were the amazing layout, design, and photography that make this book aesthetically pleasing and inspiring.


Abbi and Ksenia start you off by creating space in your mind and take you through a simple exercise to focus and leave distractions behind. Following this, they move into focusing on what exactly it is that you want. If you don’t know what you want, you can’t get it! In this section you set intentionscast your dreams, and explore what lights you up insideWhat sets your soul on fire?

In the next section you start creating your dream life. You determine where in your life you feel confident and where you feel anxious and stuck. Once you have these things nailed down, they work with you from that space. At the end of this section you will have a vision, a start to a potential business plan, or even just 1-2 actions that will jumpstart your dream life.


Next, we get clear on our purpose. What makes you happy, why do you like what you like? Why does it lights you up? Without purpose our dreams can become hazy, unfocused, and just downright not fun. If you want to be successful you have to have a driving purpose, and this section helps you get clear on that.

In this next section, both Abbi and Ksenia drive home that “Feeling ready is B.S. Start where you are!” This is where their personalities really come to play, as they get you prepared to launch your dream life now! It’s always the right time to chase your dreams.

Lastly, we are introduced to the topic productive daydreams. We are taken through creative visualization exercises to get us primed and ready to jump into our dream and take away as many positive emotions and lessons as we can from this workbook.

This workbook was inspiring in every way, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking to get down to the core of what lights them up inside. Living a life that aligns with your passions and dreams is so incredibly fulfilling and Abbi and Ksenia’s workbook can help you start that journey. Not to mention throughout this book they sprinkle in the most inspiring little quotes to keep you going! We love supporting our local biz babes!
