Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Are you tired of hiding who you are and what you believe? Are you ready to be your true self and shine for all the world to see? Do you want to unleash your X factor as an influential speaker and leader to positively impact others?
Whether you’re ready or not to be unapologetic about who you are, this book will give you the confidence and know-how to do so.
Davide Di Giorgio knows what it’s like to hide your true identity. He spent years repressing the truth that he was gay. But one day he found the courage not only to own his truth, but also to build a life for himself with a wonderful husband.
Davide also knows what it’s like to have second thoughts and doubts. He’s overcome those doubts, embraced his talents, and become one of the world’s speaking and leadership experts. For more than a quarter of a century, he has been helping high achievers like you to become visionary leaders, speakers and influencers.
Now, in Being Unapologetic, Davide shares a lifetime of experiences and the tools he offers his clients so they can embrace their identities, develop their gifts, and become the leaders the world needs. Joined by eighteen influencers who share their own stories of living unapologetically, Davide presents a goldmine of wisdom, hope, courage, and confidence for his readers.
And best of all, once you learn to be unapologetic, you’ll never look back!
“My wish for you is that you believe, deeply, in yourself and the work you’re doing in the world.”
~ Davide Di Giorgio
If you are a reader of my reviews, you know this isn’t my typical read. You also know that I judge books mainly on the covers before deciding if I should read them or not.
This is not my usual read and I have to be honest, the cover of the book didn’t jump out at me and scream “read me” but the title did. Being Unapologetic. Yes. Please.
I’m glad I picked up this book – it relit a fire in me that I have been missing. It motivated me to start – restart – doing what I love and working towards my dreams. It reminds me of who I am, who I have always been, what I have always wanted to do. Somewhere along the way, I veered off path, but Being Unapologetic reminded me of who, what, where I am, have been, and want to go.
Rarely do I read a book that I feel pushes me in the direction that I need to be pushed. Not just a nudge, but a shove. A reminder that “hey, you were on this path, you went astray, get back to it. Believe in yourself.”
This isn’t a book that you can sit down, read, and be done. Oh no. This is a book that – first off – if you can sit down and read in one go through, congratulations. I kept stopping to work on things. Go back and re-read things. Go back and highlight things. Shoot. I got this in Kindle format and need to get a paperback copy so I can keep it on hand and highlight and work through continuously. And when I say “work through” – it’s not ‘work’. It’s going back to who I was as a person. Who I am. Who I let myself get away from and to work towards a goal I have always had.
If you can’t tell, this book got me fired up. In a positive and passionate way. I cannot wait to continue using this book as a guide and work towards the me that I veered away from and the goals I had in life.

I launched the presales for BEING UNAPOLOGETIC on my 42nd birthday because I’ve decided that it’s time…
It’s time for YOU to recognize the miracle you are and to live out your miracle so that others will be the beneficiaries of the collective blessings we all have to share!
Through my story of recognizing my own gifts, I have made it my life’s work to shine the spotlight on others so that together, we can change the world, for the better!
Read the stories of EVERYDAY EXTRAORDINARY humans
You’ll learn from and read the stories of 20+ other visionary entrepreneurs, coaches, and leaders who I hand picked for how they exemplify being UNapolgetic (and beyond) in their own lives.
Be part of a BIGGER VISION to CHANGE THE WORLD!
BEING UNAPOLOGETIC also marks the launch of a larger vision and passion project – to give back, honor, support, and celebrate Performing Arts Teachers and Students.
The performing arts saved my life – and now I am using this book as the vehicle to educate, inspire, and empower students and teachers to create more community, collaboration, and contribution as I create the opportunities for them to learn how to fund their biggest, wildest, most audacious dream projects – AND – to tell the world about it, and to inspire millions BILLIONS along the way!
Here’s how it will work… a portion of every book pre-sold will go towards one (or more) dream projects for a performing arts program.
I’m currently looking for teachers and students who are up to big things – with big dreams. I’m going to start locally, in San Diego (before I expand to include the whole country, and the world!). I want to get to know the students and teachers, work with them to start empowering them to fund their dream project (Hey, 10 years as a music teacher myself, I learned a few things about fundraising, building community, and creating big impact) and then surprising them with an experience that is very personalized and unique.
TAKE A STAND with ME!
The tragedies going on in high schools today in this country break my heart. They completely overshadow and annihilate the greatness of extraordinary students and teachers who are working towards big dreams, goals, and visions.
I am taking a stand for every student and teacher who has to live in uncertainty.
I am taking a stand for those students and teachers who are bullied.
I am taking a stand for those high achievers who are up to something big and for those bright lights who don’t know how bright they even are.
Join me in making a being THE change, and
BEING UNAPOLOGETIC about it!
