So what is “Scrappy?” According to Terri, it’s a determined “effort to get around an obstacle or challenge faster, smarter - in a clever way, even “against the odds.” It’s about choosing to play BIG, “being feisty, enthusiastic, gutsy, lively and spunky.”
As I read the stories and the strategies, I began to get inspired…to get scrappy about certain BIG goals I have in my life. She even provides a summary at the end of each chapter with a few key questions to help you achieve your goals.
I believe this will be a book I routinely take off the bookshelf and re-read whenever I need to get scrappy!
