I am not married. I am not a mother. These two things are important to note because Lindsay makes it clear - in a good way- that this is her target audience. However, I sit outside the margin of that target and there is still a place for me at this table of hers and I am thankful.
This book is real. Lindsay puts it out there. She tells you where she royally screwed up and how she succeeded. In a world where people Ra-ra about all their successes all the time this is powerful.
This book is practical. There is not ethereal pie in the sky story here. Lindsay has done her work. She busted her butt against a lot of naysayers, she sacrificed things in the short term for the long term gain, and she tells you exactly how she went about doing in practical steps that anyone can take and apply to their own business.
This book is funny! Lindsay tells it like it is and adds a dash of humor that makes her feel like she is the best friend you've always known was out there.
This book is a game changer. As an entrepreneur with both a network marking business and a consulting business the one thing I struggled with was I didn't fit in the boxes everyone wanted me to be in. This book & Lindsay's story are an encouragement for those who don't fit into boxes others try to put us in. It gives us permission to go out and do things the way that we are gifted and created to do them in...and shows that by doing that you can be successful.
I highly recommend grabbing this book. But I don't recommend getting it if you are going to read it and then put it on a shelf and say "that's nice." Grab it, mark it up...take the steps outlined in it to move toward your own goals and dreams. Boss up, Baby....Boss Up.
