You guys! I’m excited for my latest book. It’s been a long time in coming and I think it’s one that many people will be able to find useful. It’s all about having more friends, and who doesn’t need that in this world?
It’s not just for people who are lonely (although that might be part of it) but it’s also about having better friendships. Having more friends means meeting new people and also nurturing the friendships you have. It’s about forming meaningful connections with people, and that’s what this book is about.
From the beginning, my writing career has centered on relationships. Don’t we all want to get along with the people in our lives better? Have more friends? Feel loved and cared about?
I’ve been blessed to have written for some wonderful places and I’ve taken all that knowledge and packed it in this book, 100 Simple Ways to Have More Friends.
I hope this book will be a handbook of sorts. Something that you go back to when you feel like you’re frustrated with your friends or when you’re bored and need to get out. It’s about ideas for meeting people and ways to keep every friendship strong. After all, you can meet all the people in the world and if you can’t keep them as friends you’ll always be searching. In order to have more friends you’ll need to hold on to the good ones that come along, and that’s not always as easy as it sounds.
I’ve broken down my advice into 100 easy to digest bites of encouragement and tips that I think will help just about anyone looking for better friendships. I hope you’ll check it out!

Reviews for 100 Simple Ways to Have More Friends:
This is such a great book for anyone who just wants some good ideas about how to expand their circle of friends. It is written in a friendly, easy to read way. I love how all the sections have titles so you can flip through and read the ones that mean the most to you. You can even go back later and easily find sections that you thought were the most helpful. I think this is a very necessary book, especially in this day and age where people are so busy and just don’t build deep friendships like they used to. There are some really great ideas in this book! ~ Laurie, Amazon.com
I think ‘100 Simple Ways to Have More Friends’ is a great book. I enjoyed how varied the advice in the book was; it manages to focus on different ways of meeting and impressing new people, as well as how to hold on to the relationships you have. It was a very worthwhile read. ~ Colleen L., Amazon
“Cherie Burbach’s 100 Simple Ways to Have More Friends is full of easy and creative suggestions to nurture new friendships while cementing the existing ones….Cherie’s perspective on finding laudable acts of exchange of ideas and emotional needs in simple daily activities, coupled with a good chapter on how it can actually be put to use, make this book an essential read. Those without friends can find fresh ones in a jiffy and those already with friends can make sure to maintain their existing friendships.” – Readers Favorite
I’ve always been a bit more reserved than most, but I also really enjoy company–I found this book to really have some great tips on how to get more friends, or a wider social circle. Not every piece of advice is exclusive only to making friends, either–I found that a lot of it can be true to networking (even in more formal or business situations) and life in general. Each tip is easy to understand and well justified, and from starting a gratitude journal to just being yourself, the this book is filled with ways to be more social and get friends! ~ CC. , Amazon
