The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs

by Laura Tremaine

Jamie Says

This isn't about which 10 friends you need right now, but over a lifetime. I love thinking about who in my life has sat in each chair.


You'd love to have a "ride or die" posse like you see on social media, but instead you have a host of really good . . . acquaintances. After all, trying to find a soul friend in the midst of dirty dishes, deadlines, and, oh, a crazy busy life can be overwhelming. But what if developing great friendships was actually easier than we thought? And what if finding a "soul friend" wasn't necessarily our highest goal?

In The Life Council, Laura Tremaine--the writer and podcaster behind 10 Things to Tell You--tells us what we've been hoping was true all along: making, keeping, and even releasing friends doesn't need to be as hard as we make it. This fun and practical guide gives you what you need to:

Create your own "life council" with the friends you already have
Understand the ten kinds of friends every woman needs--and how to find them
Learn how to evaluate your friendship circle for what's working and what might need to change
Navigate tough conversations with friends
Get excited again about the possibility of new friendships

The Life Council will give every woman the help she needs to think about friendships in a new way and find true connection, freedom, and joy in her relationships.
