Skip Bailey is a certified life coach and motivational speaker. He is author of You Are Outstanding and Unstoppable: Sixty Days of Inspiration and Affirmations, released in 2013 (978-1-4759-7933-6). May 3, 2017 marks the release of He Can’t Make You Happy (978-1-5323-3480-1). This sophomore title by life coach Skip Bailey delivers sound advice for women, straight without circumventing.
“Sometimes, women are in love with the idea of being in love,” says Skip Bailey. “But when—instead of their ideals—they encounter another human being with his own brokenness that needs to be addressed, they are ill-prepared.”
Skip Bailey has been offering one-on-one counseling for men and women for nearly a decade, often sharing his advice to support and encourage large groups. After recognizing how so many women needed the same advice, he decided to present his advice as easy-to-understand steps, in hopes of helping as many as possible.
BlackDemographics.com reports that 48% of black women have never been married. This is a cause of disappointment for many, despite success in other aspects of their lives. Healthy relationships require individuals to enter with realistic expectations and for them to operate from a healthy sense of self.
He Can’t Make You Happy is sized for women to carry in a purse and Skip’s advice is presented like ordered steps for women to use as a guide to assess themselves. Each chapter includes a “Notes” section to easily chart progress and help women discover for themselves why their lives may be off track. “Women worry. Women want to get to the heart of an issue and are willing to do the work to solve it: buy magazines, go to health clubs, join women’s groups, whatever . So many are seeking what is missing in their lives by searching outside of themselves. I just want them to understand that a man is not the solution to their problems and empower them with the tools to get their lives on track.” So in essence, He Can’t Make You Happy is life coaching in book form.
