What People Are Saying

Testimonials from Around the World

“My God, there is something profound on just about every page!”

Carrie F.

“This book is designed to go back again and again, which I love. The ideas are great, but action is even better and I loved that you allowed for the action points to be written down at the end of each section. How many times do we read a great book and then do nothing with the information?”

Diandra D.

“I have started reading [your book] and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I need to learn to be an owner and your book is helping me take the necessary steps.”

Lily C.

“Lynn and Amanda are both audaciously badassed at its finest!”

Nancy B.

“Narrated by the two best friends you never met, this book provides witty and conversational instruction on how to improve your business. You don’t need to be an entrepreneur to enjoy and benefit from this book. Many tips are practical ways to improve or set goals in your daily life. Highly recommend.”

Ami M.

“…It is fantastic to have a compilation of common issues and ways to address and conquer them all in one place! I feel like I have a new little business cheerleader in my pocket!

Felicia C.

“What an awesome book. It helps you change your mindset and gives you the tools to do it. I started my lists and tracked my badasserie! They know we all have it in us to do what we want, but many times it is our own minds that hold us back. Lynn and Amanda help us get out of our own way and go for it. I highly recommend you read this book and start moving toward the life you want!”
