"Don’t Tell Me What To Do" shows you how to break free, explore the exact version of reality YOU want and then practically implement it––on your terms.


The book weaves together Dr. Jennifer Dunphy's most transformative life lessons and unique experiences together with practical exercises and a solid step-by-step plan for all readers, striving to achieve their personal and professional goals on their terms. From breaking free from the competence-likability trap to overcoming self-bias to reframing "perfection" to cutting off the voices that tell you that you can't, shouldn't, or wouldn't, the book peels back the layers of what's holding us back and who we can be.

  • BONUS companion workbook that you can download after you purchase the book

In Jennifer Dunphy's words, "You have sacrificed enough of your life doing things the 'right way', now it’s time to do things your way."



Interview with Jennifer Dunphy DrPH, MBA

    What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

    I devote a consistent block of time each day to writing (usually around 90 minutes to 2 hours). During this time I allow no distractions and concentrate on writing, even if I don’t like what I am producing, I keep going.

    Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

    I did, because I wanted people to judge the writing—not the author. But, ultimately decided not to.

    Have you ever gotten writer’s block?

    All the time! But, the trick to writer’s block is not to wait until you get inspired but to push through it by continually writing. Some of my best work came to me DURING a writers block.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    My primary career is an executive as a doctor of public health—writing is my passion and it does run in my family. My grandmother, Nora Bunney, was a very talented writer. I may not have her talents, but I have her passion for turning emotions and thoughts into words.

    How many hours a day do you write?

    I generally aim for 90 minutes to 2 hours when I am working on a project and 15 to 30 mins daily just to sharpen my writers mind. But of course, in the real world, this doesn’t always happen.

    If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

    Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman and Maya Angelou

    Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

    I used to be a competitive sailboat racer

    Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

    Neither, I write for myself. I find that if I write from the heart about things I really care about then that ends up resonating the most with my readers as opposed to tailoring the material to 1. What I think readers would want to hear or 2. What will get the most attention. I often find that that kind of material ends up feeling inauthentic.

    How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

    The time away from my computer was celebration enough!

    If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

    Ernest Hemingway
