Sheryl Sandberg Facebook COO asks us to Lean In … should we?

Sheryl Sandberg Lean in

To say that I was resistant to reading Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead is a bit of an understatement.   However, when my great friend Joanna Penn sent me an email on Friday night telling me for the third time that I should read this book, I decided to stop fighting it and bought the book on Kindle … fully expecting to do battle with Sheryl in my mind as I read the pages. I really admire Sheryl Sandberg and what she has ... Read More »

Launch! how to quickly propel your business beyond the competition

Launch book review Michael Stelzner review

Today in BOOK LOVE we review the wonderful work of Michael A. Stelzner and his book Launch. This is a book for those who are brave enough to take a long hard look at what marketing means in today’s market place and what it’s likely to mean in the future.  As Stelzner shows us, ‘it’s focusing on the needs of others, giving gifts, working with outsiders, and restraining our marketing messages that will lead to marketing success stories.’ These are the complete opposite of traditional marketing principles and in this book ...

The book that will change the way that you market your business

fascinate

I bought this book on Amazon after a very cryptic email from a popular business blogger, Naomi Dunford.   She started out the email with the following phrase It’s 2:21 in the morning. I just finished the best business book I’ve ever read. And I’m not going to tell you what it was. Why? Because I want to keep it for myself. And can you believe it, she did!!! … and by doing so, she really got my curiosity going.  I wanted to know what that book was more than ... Read More »

The most profound thing that I got out of the book was the concept of ‘AFTERS’ . This ... Read More »

This book came to me almost by accident – I had added it to my shopping cart while I was on Amazon but had decided against purchasing it.  I then forgot to remove it, so when I was purchasing some technology items a couple of weeks later, along came this book as well.  Read More »

E-myth Revisited

It still surprises me how many people haven’t heard of or read this amazing book. It is without question the most valuable book on my bookshelf. The E-myth Revisited is a must have for any business owner who wants to succeed in business. The E-myth stands for Entrepreneurial Myth (not e-commerce as you might think in todays age).  In the E-myth, Michael Gerber tells the story of Sarah, who went from making pies for fun to managing a store that delivered pies as a business. She soon became enslaved to ... Read More »
