There is no magic pill.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to your problems.
There is no guru coming to save you.
And there is no personal-development program that will get you to “perfect.”
The truth is, you don’t need any of those things. You are brilliant and breathtakingly powerful, exactly as you are.
The remarkable truth you are about to discover—one that you already know deep down in your bones—is that this idea of perfection can’t bring you the joy, passion, and purpose you are craving.
What you are looking for, as author and Women For One founder Kelly McNelis will show you, is your messy brilliance.
It’s the part of you that’s perfectly imperfect and that contains your wholeness: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
As Kelly shares in her groundbreaking book, one of the most harmful myths in our culture is the easy recipe for perfection—complete with glossy images of beautiful people who’ve “figured it out.” But in truth, our lives are messy—and so are we!
Your Messy Brilliance is not just another prescription for living the beautiful life. Instead, it offers an engaging, customizable roadmap to the authentic you. With a combination of personal experience, relatable stories from everyday women, and practical wisdom that can be found in pretty much every culture and doctrine, Kelly will guide you into the most important journey you will ever take as a woman: the journey back home to your messy brilliance…and your ultimate truth!
Dive into your messy brilliance, where you’ll discover:
- How engaging with curiosity and childlike wonder can get you out of a rut
- A new way to boldly own your life story and move from victimhood to empowerment
- How your story is connected to the larger story of the feminine
- The truth about your “darkness” (hint: don’t be afraid of it!)
- How embodying limitless possibility is about so much more than “manifestation”
- Where your unique genius lives—in your messy brilliance and beautiful flaws! An actionable set of tools you can customize to move even closer to the true you
Get ready to laugh, cry, and be amazed. When you reclaim your messiness in service of your realest joy, you’ll finally make life happen—on your terms.
In her new book, Your Messy Brilliance, Kelly McNelis offers an engaging, intimate look at how claiming our messy brilliance can transform our relationship to womanhood, each other, and the world. I’ve always said that women are the world’s greatest untapped natural resource—and Kelly clearly shows us that when we free our attention and energy from the need to get it ‘right’, we can experience our own pleasure and power in spades.

Kelly McNelis names something very important in Your Messy Brilliance, bringing to light the secret fear we all have at times that we’re too messed up to be good enough. Her message—that where there’s no mess there’s no real becoming, no real life, no real brilliance—is both a relief and a tremendous step forward for anyone caught in the trap of ‘I’m not good enough’ thinking. There’s a lot of good information, and a lot of good love in this book. I recommend it.

Why Your Messy Brilliance?
Throughout history, women have been at the forefront of revolutions and uprisings. At the same time, we have been silenced…we have attempted to be more like men…and we have felt pressured to be everything to everyone. We are continuing to move into our power, but the pressure to “get it right” and to be the superheroines in every one of our roles (mom, partner, friend, daughter, boss, employee, etc.) is getting to us. We are now at a turning point, where we’ve hit the ceiling and are ready to call it quits. We’re exhausted by the obligations we’ve been expected to fulfill, and we are finally asking: What about me? Who am I? What do I want?
Your Messy Brilliance guides women through answering those vital questions so that they can lead lives that honor their true desires and help them embrace who they really are—which includes the “flaws” that so many of us are conditioned to hide. In fact, as this book will reveal, fully owning our stories will free us from the disease of perfectionism, shame, and self-judgment that holds us back from living the life of our dreams.
We all know that you have to put your own oxygen mask on first, but women are only now beginning to really discover how important it is to take care of ourselves, first and foremost. This process isn’t easy, and it doesn’t come naturally to many of us, which is why Your Messy Brilliance was written: as a compassionate guide that teaches women to embrace their perfectly imperfect selves. With Kelly’s guidance and a host of inspirational stories about women who have claimed their own messy brilliance, women will become aware of their whole selves so that they can fully show up in their lives.
Ultimately, Your Messy Brilliance is about empowering and equipping women with the guidance and tools that they need to share their stories, in order to discover their voices and ultimately claim their power.
