Testimonials Maria Anselmi

“When you reach the middle of your life, you start reflecting on the past and plan for the other half still lying ahead of you. You read and try to find answers or hints regarding your future life plans. Maja’s book was for me – an eager reader – a fresh surprise. In this book, you do not get the insight you can find in yoga, spirituality and biochemistry, but you meet with rock solid values that can support you, help you love yourself, make you aware of all the good around and in you. This all comes with a consistent message: also in such a quest discipline is important, and the book guides you with grace and discipline towards your true objectives. Really worth the experience!”

Maria Anselmi, Group Director Bisnode AB, Switzerland

Testimonials Letizia Accinelli

“Maja Golob’s book is at once profound and yet also a practical and easy-to-follow guide. I loved the sincere description of the high and lows of Maja’s life, and the way she has faced her difficulties. I also loved her sincere gratitude for the gifts life has given her, and I’m sure that reading about it can be an example for us all. Her description of the work she has done on herself, her tenacity and the exercises she suggests can all be easily followed and bring considerable results. I am grateful for the very clear reminder that crafting our life is both a choice and an art. An art sometimes shaped by difficult experiences and sad events. Thank you Maja!”

“I loved it, I read it without stopping. A story is impressive for most women, which is good because the reader always identifies herself with the main character and reading the book leads to a fresh sense of empowerment, which she might be lacking. I especially like the last part, that so nicely covers the nonmaterial aspects of life and gives us lots of food for thought… I sincerely hope women find a ray of light within it and transform it into their own light, one that leads to happiness. Thank you for sharing your story with the world!”

“Stop Chasing Weekends is one of the books that you must have on your nightstand so that you can take it in your hands and flip it when you need a hug or when you want to hear that everything will be fine. Not only that: a book is designed as a logbook that allows you to scribble notes. It shows us how alike we actually are, how we all face similar phases in life, ups and downs, and how good it is if small defeats do not change into tragedies. Life is a chain of decisions and consequences that we can not change, so it is vital that we learn how to live with them.”

“What a great book, I read it in an evening. I’m glad that you talk aloud about things that a lot of women go through, but just never talk about. I think every woman can find herself in one bit of your story. I’m looking forward to the next one!”

Testimonials Barbara Modic

“In “Stop Chasing Weekends” Maja reveals her life story while selflessly sharing tips on how to find happiness. It can be read as an interesting story about a young, successful businesswoman, a mother, a woman with longings, highs and lows, fears and the search for happiness. But it can also be used as a step-by-step guide to improve the quality of our lives. Because each of us gets lost once in a while. In a very structured way and through an interesting story, Maja helps the reader to focus the mind on a single goal: to find her/his own path to inner peace and happiness. The author says this book is for women only, but I say it’s universal and timeless.”

Testimonials Nives Mahne Cehovin

“Maja is a hearty and courageous woman. She first proved this to the world by succeeding, through her endeavors and professional expertise, in making a breakthrough in business. She could have been happy ever after, but she felt with her whole body that she was not. Her soul had a few more plans in store and she had to confront a few more of life’s difficulties. In a period of feeling disheartened, when everything appeared fine on the outside but questions kept emerging on the inside, she decided it was time to find herself again. With her eyes and mind open, from one experience to another, she followed her intuition and met the right people. Yet this time the journey was not forward but backward or, better said, within. Eventually, she proved also to herself how high-spirited and courageous she was by choosing the path less travelled – her inner depths. She was awarded with joy, fulfilment, and gratitude and now wants to share this in her book with other women. With specific tips and exercises, she encourages women to find their mission and unlock their happiness. The reward is the feeling of joy. J This is an optimistic and inspiring book you will not want to put down until it is finished!”

Testimonials Bernarda Zarn

“Yes, there are people who come into our lives and leave a lasting impact. Some of them come and stay forever; others leave when there’s nothing left to say. And there are people who hop on and off the train of life as it takes us to our final destination. They always come at the right time, with the right message. We need them all because, if we open our hearts, we can learn from each and every one of them,« says Maja Golob in her book Stop Chasing Weekends. What an amazing life story, full of courage, hard work, hope and love. I hightly recommend you to read it and reflect on your own life.”

Testimonials Sonja Klopcic

“An honest story that attracts the reader’s attention on the very first page and keeps it till the very last. Like the intimate confession of a friend, yet so much more as it warmly empowers the reader to develop her/his inner strength and follow her/his personal mission. Congratulations to the author for having found the wisdom in the most critical moments to realize what was going on, and to make a step in the right direction. That’s why I think men should also read it.”

Testimonials Natalie Nicholls

»I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to read Maja’s book. After reading her book, I feel I’ve made a friend. I felt her story was so reflective of my own (and other women I know) – a businesswoman who becomes a mum and housewife and finds herself in a constant battle against time and priorities. The lessons Maja highlights throughout her book really made me think about myself – if I want to be truly fulfilled I need to take care of myself first. Otherwise, I can’t be a good mum, partner or businesswoman. I’m about to become a mum for the third time and I feel I was meant to read this book at this time of my life. I’m surrounded by women going through exactly the same thing, and I will definitely be sending them copies too. A must-read for any woman who wants to take back her true girl power.«

Testimonials Polona Kisovec

“Stop Chasing Weekends is the book a friend should give to a friend, a coworker to coworker – well, every woman to herself. It is a manual to a better version of YOU.  Step by step, Maja leads you through her own transformation and questions for reflection and encourages you to stop thinking about what you don’t want, and finally focus on what you really want and take the first step towards it.”

Testimonials Natasa Fritsch

“How difficult and at times even painful it is to see yourself through the eyes of another woman. Especially as we often lack energy, joy and courage to take our life into our own hands, but the reward  – inner peace and personal happiness once your reach the destination – is priceless.  Go for it, girls! And Maja, I’m looking forward to your next book … ❤️💪🏻😉👌🏻
