1.0 out of 5 stars Chris the dispatch guy 4 Jan. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Yes, well I have read it and regarding the "Chris" dispatch guy, I am him. Lara's main problem is she can't motivate staff and tends to dominate them into what she perceives the perfect person for a position she wants to fill. One little slip up and off she goes. 10 errors in and order of 25000 mocks isn't bad, actually it's totally human. Lara didn't see it like that, she saw it as a failure. Also the diary entry of Tuesday the 13th of June 2006 stating that I was sending bags of mocks to myself is a complete lie. For what? I would like the proof on this one as it does seem to be defamation of my character. The other people in these entries know me.
Also the lead up to the resignation is not fully documented and parts have been edited. Asking for key back when I still have a week to work= harassment, which Lara was very good at hence why her business was a revolving door of staff dramas. That's Lara's business/management style and it seem that most people who worked for her eventually decided not to. Successfull in not motivating staff and workplace harassment should be the title of the book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read about a normal, Aussie business 16 Jan. 2012
By Jade Craven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. Really loved it.

I read so many books about new businesses that gloss over the hard and real stuff. They talk about the good things their business has done and leave you feeling like a bit of a failure.

This book helped me get into the mindset of a new business owner. I didn't learn anything immediately actionable, but I felt more confident as a small business owner and writer. I found the story really compelling, especially as I've watched her develop her brand on social media.

I think this will resonate with female business owners, but would be just as valuable for male readers.
