Whether you own a small business, are thinking about starting one or would just like to improve the quality of your life, this is a book you should read -- right now. It's chock full of common sense imparted to the reader by a woman whose phenomenal success speaks for itself. When you read how Gladys Edmunds, at the age of twelve, began using her spunk and imagination to put her on the road to riches in the travel industry, you come away thinking: Doggone it - if she can do it, I can, too! A combination of fascinating anecdotes about Edmunds' own life and instructive case histories of people who have sought and benefited from her counsel, 'There's No Business Like Your Own Business' is not the usual dry-as-dust business primer, but rather an encouraging, easy-to-read look at how it is possible, by managing ourselves, to manage our businesses and our lives, and that they should not be mutually exclusive. We are reminded that we needn't try to do it alone, and that it's a sign of wisdom, not inadequacy, to enlist help from others. 'There's No Business Like Your Own Business' is peppered with nuggets of wisdom from the ancients to the modern. Don't even think about starting a business until you've read what Edmunds has to say.

Gladys Edmonds writes with the power of one who has searched for and found her way through the labybrinth of life. She weaves the threads of her life story together with strands of common sense and logic. The writing is a flawless blend of homespun advice and sophisticated principles. This book is highly recommended to anyone who is seeking guidance and direction in owning their own business.

Having been a victim of corporate downsizing, making the leap into starting my own business was made easier through this no-nonsense, highly practical and strongly inspirational book, written by Gladys Edmunds. It can be a scary proposition, moving into self-employment after a 20-year career inside corporations, but reading not only about Gladys' own story but the scores of real-life examples of others she describes, proves that it can be done. I have gone back to her book time and time again for insight and inspiration, and I have yet to be disappointed.

This book was excellent, it not only kept you interested with Edmunds funny anecdotes, it was so informative. This book is a must have for anyone who owns a business and it is also great for people who have a full time job and need to find some insight on staying sane and balancing your life. This book may be geared toward entrepreneaurs and future entrepreneurs; however I think it is great for anyone who needs to maintain balance in a workworld. Great book, it will change your life.

These encouraging stories and unique ideas can NOT be found in any other college text book or book store. Even if you have your own business this masterpiece contains numerous ideas about improving the quality of your customer and business relations. Gladys Edmunds eloquent writing allows you to read with ease. Therefore, ater each chapter, you will feel encouraged to read on.
Her book has helped our business improve customer relationships 100%. I recommended this book to many of my friends and associates.

As an entrepreneur for a number of years I am always looking for motivational, educational, and inspirational information. I have found different combination of these characteristics in other publications, but not until now have I found them all in one single publication.
This is outstanding writing and very well out together.
I salute the writer, the publisher, and all the others involved in bringing such a splendid display of writing to the public.
No...Thank You.
