There’s a reason why self-help is a multibillion-dollar industry. It offers a magical commodity – the shot at a better life. Read this, attend that, and before you know it, look! You’re poised, confident and successful. It’s a beguiling promise. But does it work? The British journalist Marianne Power decided to find out.
Picking 12 self-help approaches, she followed them faithfully, one after the other, over the course of a year.
She recorded this journey in a blog and then a best-selling book, called “Help Me! One Woman’s Quest to Find Out If Self-Help Really Can Change Your Life.”
In this clip, from our Expert Interview podcast, Marianne Power explains how and why she began this self-help adventure.

A Note from the Editor
This website is a labor of love filled primarily with curated content from many people and places. Any content that comes from elsewhere will be shown with quotes or links. My desire is to create a space for others to gather who are on a spiritual journey, doing their own internal work and have a deep calling to make the world a better place. Whenever possible (mostly timing), I will share my thoughts around the content I shared...add my perspective...but sometimes I know I won't be able to do this and still want to be able to share in the moment...when it feels relevant to me and hopefully relevant for you. I hope you find value in the conversations at this table and will join me on a regular basis. You can also find me on Instagram and on Facebook.
