An entertaining, humorous, and inspirational memoir-think #GirlBoss meets Furiously Happy-about harnessing your creativity and embracing your flaws to reach your goals. With humor and heart, founder Jen Gotch shares the empowering story of her unlikely journey to becoming the creator and CCO of a multimillion-dollar brand. From her childhood in Florida where her early struggles with bipolar disorder were misdiagnosed, to her winding career path as a waitress, photographer, food stylist, and finally, entrepreneur with no business experience, she illuminates how embracing her flaws and understanding the influence of mental illness on her creativity actually led to her greatest successes in business and life. So many of us struggle with comparing our day-to-day lives against others' picture-perfect "highlight reel" on social media, and Gotch has long been an advocate for presenting life in its real, unfiltered state. Her honesty feels relatable and authentic in a social media world that too often feels staged. Hilarious, charming, and filled with candid and honest insights from Gotch's hard-won experience as a visionary businesswoman, The Upside of Being Down dares us to embrace our lives in their most honest, imperfect state and motivates us to live each day with hope, optimism, authenticity, and good humor.
