Quick read touching on the author's experiences in how small businesses have been able to disrupt larger businesses as well as the importance of purpose and family in the grand scheme of a person's life.

A small book packed with a lot of insights to guide us in our personal and professional lives. For instance, the discussion of "hygiene factors" in our jobs - what they are and how they influence job satisfaction - was enlightening. Also an excellent discussion on giving our children opportunities and at what point their extracurricular activities amount to "outsourcing" our responsibility to help them achieve personal growth and independence. Loved it so much we purchased as an ebook (I read it to my husband on a long car ride). Only criticism is that I wish there was more...I'm certain this author has a lot more to say that I would be interested in.
