BOOK REVIEW: Disconnect To Connect
by Amy Vetter
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
Have you found yourself receiving similar feedback in each job you have? With each boss you report to? With friends? With those you love?
It is human nature that when we are unhappy with an outcome, we blame the outside world for the circumstances we are in. It is in those times that it is most important to step back and take time to reflect on ourselves and explore the reasons why certain patterns show up in our lives. Often we can feel this internal work can be intimidating. Yet when we gain the courage to review how our past has created our internal stories and be truthful about how our past affects our present moment, we have the opportunity to start off living our lives with a clean slate.
With time and dedication, you can disconnect from your daily pressures and gain perspective on the patterns that hold you back at work or in your personal life. By embarking on this journey of self-reflection, you will unlock the truth in the stories you carry with you, gain a new perspective on how your past impacts you today, and discover more compassion for yourself and others. You will gain the tools to improve how you communicate with the people around you and better connect to the power within you to design the life you desire.

When we think of the accounting profession, phrases like “emotional vulnerability” or “personal self-care” are often not the first things that come to mind. Yet, Amy Vetter’s “Disconnect to Connect” brilliantly bridges this gap, offering a compassionate and eye-opening guide for anyone looking to bring a touch of humanity back into their professional lives.
A Vulnerable Voice in an Analytical World
Amy Vetter is not just another business guru dishing out conventional wisdom; she’s a speaker and writer who isn’t afraid to get personal. And I mean deeply personal. From discussions about her challenging upbringing to the trials she’s faced in adulthood, Vetter takes vulnerability to a new level. This surprising touch of humanity makes her message genuinely relatable, resonating especially well with those in the accounting field who might generally shy away from such topics.
More Than Just Numbers
What’s the end goal? To encourage accounting professionals, who often prioritize logic and analysis over emotional intelligence, to open up and take care of themselves on all fronts—physically, emotionally, and mentally. The book is filled with actionable advice on how to disconnect from work and connect with oneself, urging us to bring our whole selves into whatever we do.
In a nutshell, “Disconnect to Connect” is a groundbreaking and insightful book that challenges the status quo in the best way possible. Amy Vetter guides us to find balance in a world that often overlooks the value of personal well-being, particularly in industries like accounting that can benefit from a touch of empathy and mindfulness.
