Don't try to "do" this book while you're driving! It requires a notebook and a lot of writing. Sometimes you'll listen only to a few sentences and then be expected to spend several hours with your mirror group (some friends and mentors) or writing in your journal. This is a self-analysis guide for determining your aptitude for going into business for yourself, but don't look for any start-your-own-business advice. You're asked to draw "lifescapes" that place your "loves" and "hates" on a matrix--you will get to know yourself better! The author reads so enthusiastically that you'll want to do the work, but this is simply the wrong book for the audio format. J.E.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, MaineFrom Library Journal:
Not exclusively for women, the process delineated in this book is for anyone in business or thinking of starting a business; the goal is to jump-start the reader into creating the business and the life she/he wants. Maddox, the founder of a company dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs, uses what she calls "innerpreneuring," focusing on oneself and creating a business from the inside out. Maddox tells readers to build their businesses and/or careers around personal values and to formulate personal definitions of success. A series of exercises and activities lead to concrete, action-oriented answers. Exploring life experiences, relationships, dreams, feelings, and self-image, readers arrive at their ultimate goal of success and a life/work balance. Because this process has a widespread appeal, all libraries should consider.
