One of the best high-level books I've read on the deeply personal question of "why" to start a business and clear road map on "how" to achieve your goal. The self-assessment exercises are targeted and focused on self-discovery and clear-headed decision-making on what you want, why you want it and how to get it. I love this book for the power it gives to ignore the outside pressures and expectations of who is doing what, who expects you to do it and all the other noise, so you can get to your true self-defined path.

We start selling stuff without an actual plan for how to run a business.
It is easier than ever to sell a product or service. Build a website, start a social media page, and get a PayPal account.
This may make you some money, but it’s not running a business.

Over 50% of small businesses fail within the first three years. Don’t be one of them.

I would have saved so much time and money when starting my business had this book been around! Now, I am using it as a guide to get me to the next level in my business so I can avoid costly mistakes. Sandra is knowledgeable, sharp, and thorough in her approach to helping people build and/or expand their business. My favorite thing about this book is how it is laid out. I can read it cover to cover, or I can go to a section that addresses my current need. If you apply the information in Life Reinvented, all the random moving parts of your ideas and business practice will snap together and rocket you forward towards success.
