Reveals the most important elements straight away

I got this book because I understand that every business needs a blueprint. And this book gave me just that. Wow, I couldn't agree more with Jennifer when she said, "anything that is measured and watched improves". And she shows you how to do just that. This book truly helped me to craft and make my vision into something tangible yet still digital (if that makes sense). She goes over the most important elements to creating and launching a successful business and even goes over vital components that most business gurus will miss such as marketing and customer service. I recommend this book to all business owners.

Found at the right time!

I am so impressed with the information in this book. I’m in a maze of things to do for myself right now, and in this book the steps were laid out right in front of me. I really didn't expect for it to go into detail, but it did. It laid out plans that were applicable to the way we should deal with business in today's social environment. Everyone should know this information. I’m going to be reading it again and again for all the details.

Feeling prepared to take on the world!

After listening to this book I feel like I am very well prepared to start my own online business. I was delighted that this book covered it all- from business structure, planning, choosing a product, branding, and managing finances. This was the best gift I could have given myself to take charge of my life. Nobody is coming to save me and I'm tired of working to make someone else's dream come true and now is the time to start my own business! Kudos to the author and narrator for guiding so many women with this book!

Very Informative and Spot On

I got this for my wife because I am already in the online world and my wife is starting out. We have had plenty of discussions but it is nice to hear somethings from a different voice. I found this to be very informative and the information was spot on. My wife now trusts my input a bit more because a lot of this overlapped with my advice but most importantly she gained a new mindset and has a clear path to follow.

An absolute game changer - highly recommend!

I got this book for my 24-year-old daughter who had a great business idea but didn't know whether to, or how to get started with her idea. We listened to this together and picked up fantastic advice, tools, and tricks to manage a startup online business while continuing our jobs. It's been a great adventure and we still refer to rules and guidelines that are set and taught in this book.

So glad we picked this up. We have had such a bonding experience over building our small business and I totally credit the author for our success. The narration is also pleasant to listen to and the content is easy to follow, even for someone like me who is completely new to the business world.

Absolutely recommend, easily 5 stars!

My wife is currently at a cross roads with her career. I was offered a free code so thought it would be a nice gift for her to listen to. She’s found it enlightening and inspiring. It’s loaded with information and the chapters are well laid, giving you a clear business plan. The narration is upbeat which makes you want to keep listening.
