“I do not typically gravitate toward the self-help book genre. I decided to read this one because I had enjoyed hearing the author speak and facilitate a workshop several years ago and was intrigued to see how well her message and presence would translate from the stage to the written page. What I found most striking about this book, and the reason I gave it a five star rating, is its unique blend of credited information, personal storytelling, and effective imagery, packaged together in a coherent framework to deliver a fresh and compelling message in a voice that made me feel like I had spent the afternoon sitting on a sunny porch with a wonderful friend but still managed to get some things done.”

RITA HANSON, Amazon Customer Review

“This books is a gift to the reader. The book is an engaging and interesting read and will encourage many readers to use the suggestions and tips shared by the author. The author’s personal experiences make the book palpable and will enable readers to connect better with her techniques and advice. I found the author’s objectives motivating and inspiring, and her knowledge from her business is useful when it comes to accomplishing goals. The diagrams in the book are useful and are relevant to the topic. The author also stresses the importance of self reflection. For all those who are keen on changing the world, but starting with yourself, this book is the perfect read. All the strategies listed by the author can be incorporated easily to enable you to thrive.”
