WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

"If you are interested in starting a business, the book makes it easy, but for people who are not interested in starting a business, there are so many messages in the book that are easy and so impactful. Reading a book about someone who is marginalized and who has grown beyond it, is a message that everyone can benefit from."

Melissa Marts, Executive Director, Women’s Resource Agency
