“I have read a lot of business books, but this is the first one that was truly enjoyable to read. The writer has a unique story-telling ability that draws you in to the book before the true learning starts. I am an experienced business woman, but new to business ownership. This book caused me to question some of my own approaches I had previously felt confident in. Without telling you too much of the book, it is a must-read for any business owner or manager and the best part is you will actually enjoy it when you read it!”

“I identified so much with Jacob and his team as well as his struggle with his father, trying to implement technology in a technological deficient place. This story has given me a reframing and is making me re-evaluate my Vision Purpose and Mission as well as each one of the gears. We don’t have enough systems in place and thanks to this wonderful story by Chris, it’s evident what I need to change. Thank you so much for the non-how-to business book. It’s energized me for the next chapter of my business.”
