Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

Releasing the Rock Star Within by Sonya Blondinau.

I believe that to be successful in business and be a leader you need to be personally successful which means knowing what you value most in life and living your life in tune with those values. Also taking time out to really think about who you are and who you want to be. This book walks you through all of this.

Also this book although authored by me was edited by a BNI’er, printed by a BNI’er and the cover was designed by a BNI’er. It is the perfect example of how BNI works.
