This Podcast is pure GOLD

I’m at a crossroads in life and I’m busy with listening to everything Bethenny. Bethenny provides actionable tools and concepts for building your own business. Sometimes I really don’t like when authors read their own books on audible, but Bethenny reads well, if a little faster than I’d like - seriously this book is addicting- not for bedtime because you’ll want to get up and DO something toward your next goal.

I laughed I cried I am inspired

Dear Bethenny,

I have known about you for years from the real housewives and was amazed by your stand out personality, and how you always seemed to radiate brighter than everyone else in the room. I downloaded this book on a whim as I am at a crossroad in my life. I fought so hard to become a doctor but felt I crushed every creative and entrepreneurial bone in my body to get here. And as I try to figure out how I am going to combine my passion for innovation, and acting/creativity with this fabulous medical degree, I have been binge listening to books by successful women. And downloading your book was not a hard decision as you are known to be real and straightforward top notch. This book was true to your brand. I laughed. I cried (both tears of joy and sorrow). And most interestingly I heard you describe me. My days are solutions based. I’m always thinking. I function best in organization and I “play hurt”. I just keep going. I felt so inspired by this book and will continue to follow my dreams of spending time with my children and creating solutions that help those in need. Please please please keep writing. I will be listening.

Yours truely,

Lissa Hewan-Lowe, DO
Mom of three

Good business book

Excellent. This book started a bit slow but a few chapters in through the end, I loved it. Bethenny gives big picture advice (importance of family, balance, strategy, big picture thinking) and goes into details about how she formed some of her most successful and profitable deals. This book breaks down her multi million dollar empire into digestible, understandable deals and negotiations anyone can understand. Really enjoyed it and would recommend.
