Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a driven leader, this is exactly what I needed to read. I spent years believing that in order to achieve my goals I had to give everything else up along the way. Elise thinks otherwise and shares practical guidance of how to avoid that mindset so we can achieve our goals while also having a life! Honestly, I wish more leaders would talk about the challenges and pursuits addressed in this book. If so, we would all feel the freedom to pursue our goals with more joy. Great book and an absolute ‘must-read’ for any achievement addict.
