    Liked the Author

    It was easy reading this book. The Authors personality came out as I read this book. You can tell she is a lovely woman and has a real passion for what she does. She is very encouraging and comes across to the audience that if you have a passion for making jewelry whether to have a money making business or as a hobby anyone can do it! Has some good resources but could have definately had more for someone who is starting new in the business.

    An absolute must read for those wanting to start a jewelry business.

    I wish I had read this book BEFORE I spent a cent on my jewelry business. Lareau would have saved me a lot of money. I found and read the book about 9 months after I started my business and have made many changes because of the information in this book. It is a time saver and a money saver.

    Lareau knows her stuff. I found her writing to be easy to read, well focused, and valuable. One can read it a chapter at a time or all at once. I have probably read many chapters three times and get more out of it each time I read them.

    I'm ready for book 2, Ms. Lareau.
