F.I.E.R.C.E Mothers


Must read 🏆

Ugochi Onyewu knows her purpose for existing and lives it. She is a wife and a mother. F.I.E.R.C.E Mothers do exist. You can be FIERCE too.

F.I.E.R.C.E Mothers | Create the Life of Your Dreams and Crush Your Goals by Ugochi Onyewu uplifts women by sharing the framework or the template she uses to write this book and to organize her life. Since the title is an acronym, we need to understand each letter. F stands for first things first. I represents I am. E signifies your engine. R represents relationships. C is for chief financial officer, and the final E is for execution—F.I.E.R.C.E

Each letter has a set of soul-searching questions. Answer the questions honestly without putting yourself down. This defeats the purpose. Since the goal is to find your purpose, your answers to each set of questions will help you determine your direction. Whether you’re a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, this is a win-win method.         

Ugochi’s framework requires time management and financial management with a definite focus--which requires accepting the power of your mind. This author believes in God and gives Him all glory for her accomplishments. However, you don't have to share her beliefs to benefit from this book.

F.I.E.R.C.E Mothers want to live in their own truth. You can be a wife, a mother, and still have your own life. Therefore, at the end of the day, you are not unhappy because you have served everyone but you. If you want to be all that you can be without losing yourself, the framework in this book may be a jump start for you.


This author also acknowledges that she has a tribe of positive friends who are willing to help her reach her goals. This is a very legitimate point. Nobody accomplishes anything alone.  


Ugochi seems like a superwoman, but she is an organized woman. She schedules everything, but there is room for the unexpected. She is able to accomplish her goals by staying on task. She successfully serves other people, but she does not leave herself out of her own life. This is good for all mothers who want to live a purposeful life.

F.I.E.R.C.E. Mothers work toward accomplishing their happiness. Women can be successful mothers, awesome wives, and experience a fulfilling life. This book offers insight that may change your view about how you want to live your life. It has 241 pages. What do you have to lose?
