Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this memoir with an underlying self-help slant, motivational speaker Pitcock reflects on her career setbacks and triumphs while sharing her success secrets. In their early 20s, while raising three children in their small Kansas town, Pitcock and her husband, Dave--a professional bull rider and construction worker--entered the world of home-based network marketing and scored big: "We were making thousands of dollars per month." They also made many friends as they traveled to meetings and conventions. Writing intimately but in pedestrian prose, Pitcock interweaves such topics as trust, desperation, relationships, setting goals, conquering fears, growing spiritually, and achieving financial freedom. Readers who can slog through the minute details of building their "upline" to sell nutritional products may come away with some inspiration and hope. B&w photos. (Sept. 1)
