A fast read--and an inspirational one: Australian serial entrepreneur and author (Happiness Is, 2009) Messenger tells it like it is, offering a path to success that involves not only hard work but also guts and no small amount of determination. And she inspires by simply telling her own story, following a bare-bones outline of 10 actions. From "believe in yourself" (sound familiar?) to "do good," Messenger peppers every overpromoted cliché with real stories. Like the time she dreamed about starting a publishing empire while atop a Marrakesh roof. Or how she overcame the fear of public speaking. Even her brand tips--connections are king; secure all your names as fast as you can--have relevance in today's insanely busy work world. And it all ends with this: "Make money so you can make a difference." Simple advice, well-put.--Barbara Jacobs - Booklist online
Full of stirring wisdom that's particuarly relevant to entrepreneurs but also to anyone chasing success

This book is very empowering for anyone who is trying to defy the status quo or go against what is expected of them, in life or in business. It is the perfect book for new or established entrepreneurs, and goes into not only how you make a success of yourself, but some of the mindset pitfalls you might encounter as well.
However, this is not a step-by-step guide to starting up a business and the tools you should implement. It's an overall guide on exactly how to be daring and disruptive in everything you do, and it's the perfect boost you need when starting a new project.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and it has made me more determined than ever to follow my own path, experiment with life and let me be guided by my passion.
