Ok, so disclaimer... We are in this book and the brilliant mind behind it, Fiona Killackey, is a friend. But, that just makes any recommendation to buy it and savour every word, all the more sincere. And sincere we are when we say, gee whiz where was this book when we started Sage x Clare?!
We've read many a biz book and have found they sit somewhere between intimidating and overwhelming or so light and fluffy that we're left none the wiser. This one is different... It's heartfelt, it's practical, it's got substance, it's real life, it's achievable, it's attainable, it's resourceful. It's the perfect book for anyone considering taking the leap into their own biz or for anyone that's already done it - even the most seasoned of biz owner.
Even with years under our belt, this is a welcome resource that we'll return to over and over. Our only regret? That it wasn't written sooner...
