Image Grit to Great book review

I am usually not a fan of non-fiction but I am trying to break out of my genre and I am glad I did. If you are a 70s-80’s kid you will truly appreciate this book. It is very entertaining  and the stories told are relatable and interesting. It is written in snippets with anecdotes between chapters. The stories are ones I have never heard about from some of most successful business of our time.  I did not realize who these two authors were until they began telling the stories of the marketing campaigns they were a part of, Aflac and Wendy’s just to name a few.
They spoke of this feeling of entitlement among my generation and boy did it hit home. They made me get up off my butt and reevaluate things. The tips they give are doable and they make so much sense. This would be a great book for high school students as well as college. It is a straight forward look at the old fashion word “grit”. Digging in deeper than the other guy and not using your lack of extraordinary talent or knowledge as an excuse.
I loved this book and I am definitely adding it to my list of go-to favorites. I would definitely keep a highlighter or notepad next to me while reading it.
If you are not a fan of non-fiction this book will change your mind and having wanting more from these 2 great authors.


Image AGH!! Car rider lane and no book!! No reading for me.

Every afternoon I look forward to the last few minutes of my day where I can be alone and read my books in the car rider lane. I have no idea what happened. You would think with this huge purse I would have a book tucked away for emergency purposes. No reading for me today. I had to suffer playing on my phone which I was not really happy with. Oh well, lesson learned.

What is wrong with this carlane picture….I LEFT MY BOOK!! Agh!! longest 20 minutes of my life…. #bookstagram #book
