Britney Ruby Miller has faced overwhelming obstacles in her life—extreme challenges to her faith, her family, her marriage, and her business. Each of these challenges alone might have caused her to give up and shut down, closing herself off to all of her hopes and dreams. Instead, she fought back hard, engaging in a faithful fight to attain a 5-star life.
Are you allowing your negative life experiences to transform you—or to undermine you? No matter what obstacles you face, you can learn ways to fight back, “striving for 5” to reach a 5-star life.
Now the CEO of a chain of nationally-ranked, high-end steakhouses, Britney has fought the battles of rejection, feelings of low self-esteem, family tragedy, infidelity, infertility, and the global pandemic that threatened not only to close her family’s business but also to decimate the entire restaurant industry. “I am so thankful that God helped me stretch, heal, learn, and grow from my journey so far,” says Britney. “There is absolutely no way I would have been able to function at such a high level at work, balancing so many plates at once, and be full of God’s love and peace even in the hardest of times, without having been transformed through a lifetime of experiences. God used all of my negative experiences to make my life more rich and full of joy and purpose.”
Britney’s ingredients for a 5-star life include:
* Partnering with God to live the life you were meant to live
* Working together for a strong family life
* Cultivating a unified, loving marriage
* Pursuing excellence at your job or business
* Giving back to others in your community and the world
With captivating stories and reflections to take you deeper into principles for success, this book will show you how to keep your faith and hope in the midst of challenges, setbacks, and even tragedy as you persevere with tenacity to attain your 5-star life of excellence.
I am always drawn to a good self-help book, so I was glad to find Britney Ruby Miller’s book, 5-Star Life. Initially, the title caught my attention, but I wasn’t sure what to expect beyond that. In reading the book details, I determined that I know nothing about the restaurant business; however, I know a lot about heartbreak, obstacles, and tragedy, so I figured I would give the book a try. I am so glad that I did!
Britney did a fantastic job of discussing her life which was filled with a lot of brokenness along the way. However, she did not stop there. She was deliberate in sharing how faith in God transformed her life and allowed her to fight for the people and things most important to her.
The lesson I learned from reading 5-Star Life was less about business and more about faith. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great business points that as an entrepreneur, I will use, but even more important to me was the reminder that if you keep God at the center of all that you do, you will be unstoppable.
If you are looking for a self-help book to take you to the next level on your faith journey, I highly recommend 5-Star Life. Although it covers topics you may have seen before, I can assure you the way Britney delivers the message is entirely unique. She draws on personal experience and uses a very conversational tone which is refreshing. She is undoubtedly a business expert but also a humble person with a great desire to help others.
5 Stars for 5-Star Life.
