You Do You: Local Mom Featured in Best Selling Book Series

Jan 11, 2019 10:33AM ● By The Hood Magazine

Mandy Waysman says she followed the author, Jen Mann and her essay collections. The collections are humor-based stories about motherhood. When Mann was putting together one about female empowerment, Waysman knew she wanted to get involved. Stories were accepted from girls as young as 15. 30 women wrote stories about different times in their lives with advice to pass along to the next generation.

“My story was about some advice my father gave me and a break up I had when I was young,” said Waysman. “I put a lot of focus and time into building a relationship instead of building up myself. I put that effort into something else. It’s about finding that and adjusting after.”

Mandy is married to Kerry and they live in Sioux Falls with their two daughters. You Do You  is currently available through various book retailers.
