Format: Paperback
This book offers both a practical business roadmap to achieve outstanding results with the insight of an enthusiastic, supportive coach. Elaine Starling's approach to help business leaders succeed combines her successful track record in marketing and social media with her vast knowledge, network and shared examples of other business case studies. I recommend this book for both younger professionals starting their careers as well as to more experienced ones who want to re-create their businesses and value. It is filled with interesting resources and idea. This will be a delightful book to gift to anyone who wants to be at the top of their game!

When I started reading this book, I was a bit annoyed. It starts with 20 or so pages with reviews, and I hadn't read the book yet, so I didn't know my right brain needs the emotional stimulation... Besides, I seem to be of the wrong gender to read this.

This is really a wonderful book, and compared to most other books and reviews, 5 stars are not enough to rate it. Besides the core message, the 5 principles, nearly every page contains treasures, pearls of insight and understanding and observations. A great and inspirational read.

Format: Paperback
Unlike so many other self-help books, this one is filled not just with the "what" but also the "how-to" in language that's easy to understand and follow. This is not a book to read just once -- it can be used as a roadmap as one navigates both personal and professional paths to success. What's more, there's encouragement, enthusiasm, and CARE on every page. It's like having Elaine there as a personal guide and mentor.

There are very few books today that offer the insight, clarity and practical approach needed for business people to succeed. Elaine shares her vast experience in marketing and social media and lays out a thoughtful and straight-forward roadmap that can help you achieve success both personally and professionally. Her enthusiasm and passion for business comes through loud and clear and you'll feel like she is right there beside you coaching you along the way. If you need a boost to get your business or career moving, then I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed

Elaine has combined her years of experience as a marketing consultant into an easy to understand book that is especially useful to entrepreneurs, both men and women. She used accelerated learning principles to keep both sides of my brain engaged. Her charts helped to cement her revenue formula into my brain. I loved the stories she used to support her principles. Our resilience, body language, ability to listen, relationships, reputation, and ability to create relevance for our customers are all discussed in this must read book.

I very much appreciate the clarity, the attention to detail,and the interesting combination of passion and practicality in Starling's book. Even a person who's pretty-bad-at-business (like I am) can get a grip on (and then grasp firmly!) the principles she lays out about what to do,how to do it, and, most important, why to do it. This is one of the rare books I will recommend without reservation to many,many people.
