    Inspirational book!

    I met my mentor, Debby Dubay, retired United States Air Force. I tracked her down and she has helped me turn a passion into my profession. The Business of Bliss is very inspirational and a must for all who are thinking of beginning their own small business.

    It's a Book I Couldn't Put Down!

    This book was so inspiring and beautiful, that I read it cover to cover and hated to see it end. It is full of real life, inspiring stories of women who are doing it on their own, and loving every minute of it. For those of us who are just starting out in our own businesses, this book is a guiding light and proof of what can lie ahead for women who have the courage to follow their dreams. I LOVED this book.

    Bliss is Right!

    'The Business of Bliss' is thoroughly enjoyable and to the point. It is inspiring to me as a new business owner in several ways. It affirms the desire to have my own business, it confirms ideas and warnings I've received from other resources, and the style in which it is written is smooth and gracious, yet not lightweight. It contains wonderful ideas that make me think of how they could be applied to my business. The division of material is well thought out, and easy to read because of the print style. I highly recommend 'The Business of Bliss' to any woman who has even remotely thought of starting her own business. If her ideas set her heart afire, this book will fan the flames and encourage her onward! Enjoy this book in a setting where you can read undisturbed and not be in a hurry - it will definitely make an impression!

    With This Book By Your Side, You Will Never Feel You're in on it Alone!

    This book was wonderfully inspirational. Any questions, doubts, concerns, or down-right 'heebie-jeebies' one might have about striking out on their own is answered in this book and you feel as if you have just been given a great pep talk by a great coach and can now go on and conquer! There are many books out there that we seriously need to get us started in our own businesses mechanically - How to start a business, The Mompreneur, How to start an E business, etc., and they are all very helpful and have all the information that we need to start and run a business, but the person to person 'Am I crazy for doing this?' side of us is quieted once you read this book. This book will not only put you on track, but will keep you there when you start to waiver and don't have a mentor or someone to lean on. Wish me luck in my own venture, I am finally taking the plunge!

    A must read for anyone needing inspiration to forge ahead.

    I just finished reading The Business of Bliss and got the inspiration I needed to forge ahead and stay optimistic in my business venture. What I found especially intriguing were the stories of those people who didn't experience immediate success but yet they didn't give up. Some took new avenues and redirected but all pulled themselves up and moved on. At the very end of the book it says, 'what sets the successful business women apart is that she often seems to wear a pair of metahorical blinders that don't allow her to see failure as a possibility.' As I prepare to present my graphic design portfolo for the first time to a local business I will not consider failure as a possibility. Thanks for a great book full of encouragement.
