What I love about Life On Your Terms... is that its a compilation of experience from been there done that's. Notably, I am biased here, since I also contributed to the book. But when I read it, I was taken aback by the many different stories, and the many different definitions of what life on your own terms means. This book is a great "fill the gap read". I have picked it up and read a single story and then put it down for a week, and then picked it up again when I needed motivation with another story. Solid read with interesting stories. I recommend highly.

- Mike Michalowicz, Author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur: The tell-it-like-it-is guide to cleaning up in business, even if you are at the end of your roll.

Life on Your Terms is an inspiring collaboration of stories and essays written by entrepreneurs from many backgrounds. Shann Vander Leek combines her knowledge and experiences from her marketing, coaching and entrepreneurial worlds and blends these stories into a beautiful fabric. Everyone can find inspiration in these pages. You will read this book over and over again. I recommend buying several, they would make great gifts for friends, family and colleagues.

So many of us are experiencing that "itch" to do more than just punch a clock doing work for "the man". In Life On Your Terms, Shann provides the inspiration and information you need to move beyond your 9-5 world and in it's place create work that inspires and fulfills you.

What I love about the book is that it serves up real life stories from men and women in all walks of life who have taken the leap. They share their experience, wisdom and enthusiasm for creating a life and career that uplifts and inspires.

This book is a must have for the seasoned entrepreneur as well as the 9 to 5'er feeling stuck in their day job. The stories are easy to read and provide inspiration that will help you begin living the life you really deserve. I keep my copy on my desk for those times when I need to remind myself why I chose to live Life On My Terms.

Oh and buy a few copies while you're at it, the book makes a wonderful gift for friends, colleagues and clients alike!

Shann provides for the reader an opportunity to not only inspire and motivate, but if you are stalled, delayed or just plain stuck, the great variety of stories presents everyone with something they can relate to. The accounts energize and allow the reader to identify with various accounts which inspires people to get in gear and excel at whatever they do. Reading about others' extraordinary ideas and processes was a great idea and a service from the heart that Shann has provided. I highly recommend this book for your library.

Life On Your Terms (by) Shann Vander Leek-is simply a book filled with powerful information. I've been living on my own terms for more than 4 decades. From Shann's book I came away with renewed passion, understanding, and a desire to implement a few new terms.

Do this one really good thing for yourself, purchase the book and read it more than once...in fact, make it a night-stand book.

Good things do come in small packages.

Thank you Shann, a wonderful work of the pen~
