The Big Little Question

Despi Mayes

The Big Little Question is a practical guide for women on the hunt for lasting fulfillment. In an age that encourages you to seek an endless amount of achievement and perfection, Despi Mayes nudges you to relinquish those goals. Instead of endless striving, she presents a simple, potent process to uncover a deeper, intensely personal definition of success that will make your life uniquely fulfilling.

Despi's debut book is a powerful self-development toolkit offering pragmatic advice, effective tips, and actionable exercises that will help you:

  • Cultivate feelings of worthiness
  • Stop people-pleasing and start setting effective boundaries
  • Discover what you find satisfying
  • Redefine success on your own terms
  • Envision your ideal day-and make it a reality
  • Feel energized and inspired by your life

Informed by her one-on-one coaching clients, dozens of interviews with professional women, and her own story, Despi has packed this book with real-life examples that make every chapter relatable and relevant. If you feel stuck, locked in a reactive cycle of confusion and overwhelm, The Big Little Question will show you the way to clarity, confidence, and lasting fulfillment.
