The Brule Breakers Club  

So much more than a book club. 

📌 Brules (bullshit rules) are made to be broken. Since I’m writing for you, I decided to write with you.

📌 Rather than write in a vacuum or private silo, holed up, typing away, waiting to release a completed work … YOU are invited to go on the journey with me. 

📌 The Brules of Life (released Oct 2021) is first in The Book of Brules series – but not the last. As I write, I share chapters for future books with members, though this Club isn’t “about” my writing. It’s about making your life better. Together we rethink conventions, challenge status quo assumptions, and experiment with new approaches for better results than conventional avenues bring so that YOU can create a no-vacation-needed life, now.

“Working with Tara made me realize that every dream is achievable if you have the right support. In our fast-paced multi-tasking lives, Tara is able to get to the heart of what’s most important to our happiness.”  ~ Terri Sinclair, sales trainer

“Tara brings so much to her groups. Her leadership style is compelling. I feel engaged and present throughout and always leave feeling like a switch has been turned on.”  

~ Claire Winston-Wade, wedding officiant

Two of my guiding questions are:

(1) What is the truest thing I can say about the topic at hand?

(2) How can I say it with love, while unapologetically debunking “brules”, in order to make your life and the world better? 

(Book 2) The Brules of Self-Care 

There are countless brules about self-care. Debunking them is critical to your happiness and wellbeing.

The following outlines topics for this much-anticipated sequel to The Brules of Life

  1. Don’t complain. 
  2. Don’t quit. 
  3. Act your age. 
  4. Time management is the key to productivity.
  5. Practice makes perfect.
  6. A healthy lifestyle is time-consuming and expensive.
  7. Don’t rock the boat.
  8. Don’t be selfish.
  9. Being single is lonely.
  10. Call things by their right name.
  11. Don’t let emotions guide your decisions. 
  12. Don’t talk to strangers.
