From the Back Cover

Tabatha is back to share her secrets of business success . . .

With her characteristic savvy expertise and no-nonsense advice, the perfectly coiffed celebrity hairstylist, Tabatha Coffey, returns with her second book, teaching readers that the secret of success is taking charge—of your priorities, your future, and your life. Fans of her hit show, Tabatha Takes Over, value Tabatha's sound approach to overhauling failing businesses, and now, in Own It!, she takes to the page to reach out to anyone with a dream: whether you're just beginning, revamping your career, or starting your own enterprise.

Sharing her blunt but rock-solid wisdom, Tabatha provides tips for every aspect of business—from entrepreneurship, to customer service, to management—as well as on the home front, to help women seeking to balance their family lives with their careers. Filled with stories about real people who have faced challenging transitions, in addition to anecdotes from Tabatha's own experiences, this book reveals, through her unflinching honesty, Tabatha's commitment to the dreams and goals of her readers, and her never-say-never attitude when it comes to bringing them to life.

Success is the result when you Own It! in all aspects of your life, and Tabatha breaks it down step-by-step as your straight-shooting personal coach to show you how it's done.

Love Tabatha!! She tells it like it is! She is not telling us any great secrets here, most is common sense, if you really think about it. But most of us, need to hear it every now and then to remind us how to own our lives. By the book, just for the stories about her mother. Her mother really sounds like she was a character!

5.0 out of 5 stars I needed to "own it" January 8, 2015
By beth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book. I've been a hairdresser for many years . I bought the salon I've worked in 8 yrs ago because the previous owner was going t o sale it to a taxidermist (yikes) their was no way I was going to work for a taxidermist! I had no money but good credit and being a single mother of three I need security,but, I had no None! Experience in business. I had some client that loved me and her and her husband were very successful business owners so she told me she would help me out for a few months in till I got started. She did all my books took all my stuff to the accountant made sure I was always on the up and up .And when money was tight she would simply say be carefully it's a little tight right now. Will, we were always so busy that I didn't get why money was tight. I ordered what we needed and what I wanted then I'd lay off for a while and be fine. God I loved her so much! Then the worst happened she got sick .she wasn't able to help me anymore , 7 years later. I'm on my own looking at my own money trying to learn QuickBooks seeing more money going out then coming in . She new how to juggle it all without stressing me. She just aloud me to do what I did best.(Hair behind the chair) I. Cryed I begged my staff to cut back I had meetings on our finances I was depressed .Basically I've been a mess .I tried something new. I decided to make my commissioned staff be independent contractors there rent would be there 40% and I would still carry all the inventory .I thought it was a great idea it would save me $12.000 a year in payroll taxes and unemployment taxes. Good right? Wrong! I learned one thing about my "friends" my staff .DONT "F" with my pay check! That's when I learned my staff are not my friends they really don't care what my finance problems are . I needed help . Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written! July 8, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Tabatha Coffey is very inspirational! Her "in-your-face" concepts are mind moving. I love the life lessons and Norma's notes that she includes in this book. She teaches you how to simply take responsibility of your actions and decisions, while own the consequences good, bad or indifferent. I definitely recommend any books written by Tabatha.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide! May 29, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A well thought and and easy to understand guide for starting or renewing a business. I don't normally like reality shows, but Tabitha's Take Over really grabbed my attention as something useful and not just voyeuristic. I'm very glad she put the basics down in a form that we can all follow!

3.0 out of 5 stars Same book Different cover June 29, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good book for business owners however I felt that some of the info was very similar to her other book "its not really about the hair".
I did enjoy the book, was an easy, fast read.
