What I Thought:

This was a good little book on business. What I probably liked the most is that it DIDN'T read like a boring 'ol business book! It had that "I'm talking to a friend and giving advice" feel to it, which I thought was nice.

Even though it is a business book I saw it as overall life advice. I think what was contained within the pages of this one can be applied to many aspect's of one's life in general. I enjoyed it and thought that it contained good, sound advice.

About The Book:
(from Amazon)

Liz Robertson is in trouble. Her business is floundering and her relationship with son, Justin, is drowning. As a single mother, she is spread thin and there are things that she misses; like the fact someone is stealing money from her event planning business. Tired, frustrated, and stretched beyond her capabilities, she stumbles upon an unlikely business resource; her son's soccer coach. Ready to try anything to salvage her business and her relationship, she begins to apply those lessons she learns on the pitch. But will it be enough and in time to allow her to make a living and have a life?
