5.0 out of 5 stars Honest. Informative. Funny. April 4, 2011
I'm a fan of Melody's Crave concept and really looked forward to reading this book. I'm a small business owner and am about to embark on a new venture. I was hoping this book would be an honest account of what it's really like to take risks in business--both the pros and cons. It exceeded my expectations. Melody tells it like it is--she holds nothing back. The books conversational nature made me feel like it was just the two of us chatting away at her favorite coffee shop. She's such a great story teller! A fun ride--honest, informative and inspiring. Things to ponder (even if you've written a comprehensive business plan) and pitfalls to avoid. So much heart and passion. It's a great reminder of why I love being an entrepreneur.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serial Sense from a Serial Entreprenuer April 4, 2011
By Linda S
It's refreshing to read such an honest evaluation of what doesn't work along the path to success. Melody's frank self-appraisal and engaging style makes this an easy read and a good guide for start-ups.

I kept thinking of this favorite quote as I was reading..."People who cannot invent and reinvent themselves must be content with borrowed postures, secondhand ideas, fitting in instead of standing out." - Warren G. Bennis... Melody Biringer will always stand out, initiate ideas and never be just content!!...and so will you if you follow the easy tips in her book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Book July 17, 2011
When I saw this book, I couldn't believe how much she shared. I know Melody and she is as honest in real life but it is wonderful to read a book by someone who openly discusses all her businesses and achievements and all the things that she could do better. Not many people are able to be this; openly share all this information and experience and let you learn from their mistakes. It is an easy, light and quick read that will leave you motivated to do smarter business.

5.0 out of 5 stars So happy I bought this book! June 21, 2011
I am so thankful to Melody for sharing her personal story. Very rarely do you see people discuss there business failures and Melody has chosen a path less traveled by being candid about what worked for her and what didn't. Her book has made me rethink what I want to do as an entrepreneur which is a good thing! Anyone who helps me avoid pitfalls in life, I consider them a blessing. Again, thanks Melody for sharing your business expertise with the world!
