Taught Me To Be "Open" With People Again
on March 10, 2013
I admit, I cheated - I bought this book after checking it out from the library, so this review will be a little biased anyway. Believe me, I don't buy library books I don't like! I've always been a go-getter - my phrase is, you don't ask, you don't GET. Meaning, you have to go after what you want. But I own a business, and sometimes I can feel kind of shy about promoting it, because I don't want to seem pushy. I can't keep doing that. Susan's book taught me how to talk to people about it without seeming pushy, and creating my own luck in the process.
I live in the Washington, DC, area, and frankly, you get told to "clam up" and "shut it" here when it comes to showing signs of actually having a personality. Sad thing to say, but I think it's true. You can lose the kind of openness that can make life fun. Susan helped me bring back that part of myself.
And she writes in a down-to-earth style that makes it seem like talking with a friend. And Susan's a very nice lady. I emailed her after I finished reading it, and she replied back literally within a hour, with a fun, friendly email.
Great book, nice author...what more could you want?
