Best Book I've EVER read!

There are SO many excellent smart nuggets of wisdom from m experiences of the author and numerous other game changers that the author shares . In my opinion this book should be a must required read for all entrepreneurs, innovators and business owners! I have read many books and this book is my personal and business BEST book. A definite must have for your personal library. There are WAY MORE must know traits to uncommon success--so many that you will need to read/listen to this book multiple times to absorb & remember them all. This book is hands down one of the best with the most value investments I've made as it relates to business & personal development. I look forward to reading anything else this author writes and publishes.

Thanks for Your Transparency & Desire to Share

I'm a truck driver that dreams daily of my passion to become an published author. My previous careers over the past 20+ years were in the military and corporate America where I found that I had begun to conform to societal standards. Mary's story is truly engaging and is my confirmation that it was ok for me, SBF, mother of an adult son to break away. I tried to force myself to listen to only a few chapters per day so I could meditate on what she said and apply it to my life. Needless to say, I finished the book in four days because her words and passion to share the keys to becoming a game changer and living your passion took hold of me and wouldn't let me go; like the pitbull tenacity she speaks of. Her story and the stories of many shared in the book are inspiration and fuel to push you forward into your destiny. Thanks to Mary and her tribe for a wonderful book.
