judy_cutout_book_cover_lg_v2Judge Judy doesn’t know it, but she’s like my best friend (in my head) and has taught me so much about life and many of the frivolous legalities that (could potentially) follow: like why it’s not a good idea to put a friend on your cell phone plan, financial responsibilities of pet owners when animals behave badly, consideration/benefits (not) afforded to un-married parties (i.e. those that shack) and more! Most of the lessons I learned, not from my own mistakes, but from the mistakes of others.

Now, after almost 20 years on the air, Judge Judy is offering a new book called, What Would Judy Say: Be The Hero of Your Own Story, free of charge on her website.

“In this book I want to have an honest conversation with women about what it really takes to get what you deserve out of life: how to define your worth and stick to it; how to find the courage to take risks–and how to build your backup plan; how to ignore the chattering classes (and the fearmongers) and create your own destiny.”

Here are Judy’s 10 Life Laws of Success:

  1. Be indispensable.

  2. Think fearlessly and strategically.

  3. Use your assets.

  4. Don’t blow first impressions.

  5. Lighten up.

  6. Practice punctuality.

  7. Create an interesting person.

  8. Demand your worth.

  9. Do the right thing.

  10. Leave a footprint.
