Yes, I'm THAT author of No, You Can't Pick My Brain (on Forbes & the book).

I am a serial entrepreneur (it's in my DNA). I help business owners repair, scale, and grow their businesses. I help you NOT be a broke brand.

I founded Empower Me! Corporation, a Growth Strategies consultancy with brand extensions in media, publishing and small business education. I believe if you want it badly enough, anyone can grow in ANY ECONOMY. I provide Strategic Business Growth consulting services to small business owners with high growth potential. I assist clients in creating processes and implementing strategies to effectively run, grow and position their business for success. I work with clients to get to the root of the problem, then fix it. I also help business owners leverage their knowledge, skills and brands to get paid MORE by giving away less for FREE, allowing them to be more PROFITABLE.

I am the host of Views from the Top Radio Show, and the creator of the Brain Safe Community, Empower Me! Institute, Empower Me! Radio, the Growth Clinics, and The Business Owners Club. I'm a published author and the publisher of Empower Me! Magazine.

I truly love what I do. I get to help people not only shift their attitudes, but also build the business and legacy. And I get to use this amazing multi-media platform that I've created to help them overcome their obstacles to achieve their goals.

I don't allow limitations- self imposed or otherwise. And I know my value and my worth. Stick around. I plan to do some pretty amazing things.

Wow. I suspected this would be a good book after reading the free chapter and the various articles and interviews, but I was more than pleasantly surprised with the content. I felt like I'd just sat down to read and ended up getting an hour of dedicated consulting instead. Not only did I get the story about how the book came about, but Adrienne Graham pours on the advice, tips and practical information. Her experience was my experience and when I was finished reading it I felt torn between weeping and cheering. Her experience validated my belief that so many business people, family and friends simply want to TAKE, TAKE, TAKE and don't understand the word, RECIPROCITY. Adrienne is a generous, trusting soul and so I am. We WANT to give and yet when we do, the greedy bastards steal, drain and suck us dry and never understand, let alone respect, what we have done.

I've totally changed the way I do business because of this book. I still give freely and generously, but when people ask me a question, or attempt to pick my brain, I smile sweetly and say, "That information is on my website." When they whine like little babies about how hard it is to find the information and ask, "Can't you just tell me," I say, "Sure, for $150 an hour. Do you want to schedule that now, or after you get back to your calendar?" For other topics I say, "I wrote an ebook/book about that. It's $2.99 or $5, or $7 and here's the link," the GREAT people are enthused and promptly BUY it and consider it a bargain. The losers and brain pickers blather on about how poor they are (Seriously? You're standing there with a $7 cup of Starbucks, munching on a $5 pastry and whining about how you have no money?) and say, "maybe I'll buy it later.

This book was recommended by another consultant. I must say, she makes valid points but I got the impression that she had actually written this as a series of essays, because she repeated her points too many times in substantially similar ways. Tighter editing would have helped!

Free lunches don't pay your mortgage or land you clients. Adrienne's book showed me above all else how to identify situations when I am being politely taken advantage of by under-valuing or under-billing my services. She has written verbiage into this book to help me when I am being asked for the information or knowledge that I just don't have the time to spare - without payment. "Knowledge workers" like myself - people that get paid for what they know, experiences they have, and ideas they generate - often don't get the same level of respect as people that produce tangible goods. This book shows you when to say yes to offers of free lunches and "can I just pick your brain?" requests and turn them into profitable and stress-free interactions with future clients.

I am a old, tired, and heavily abused IT Consultant who winds up fixing and advising for free. I think I will start using the word NO.
