“I just wish I'd had this book when I first started my business. It reads like a best friend's diary, and she says everything I worried about silently, but thought it was ‘just me.’”

Cindy Childress, Ph.D. The Expert's Ghostwriter®

This book is like a priceless roadmap — one from your best friend with all the “must-see” stops already marked so you don’t miss a thing or waste your time on “The Best…” bullshit!

Maia Richardson

Here’s what readers are saying:

I loved Angie's rawness. There's so much validation in the mistakes and challenges that we've all faced, without any of the judgment... then she drops actionable and simple ways to avoid the pitfalls. Angie made a business book / autobiography that has more meaning than most non-fiction authors could ever hope to pull off.

Justin Blackman, Brand Voice Expert

I had to force myself to put the book down at night. It's SO GOOD. So many success books come from folks who chose (or always wanted) to build their garage side hustle into a multi-million dollar corporation. For anyone hesitant to step out because they think that's what their goals HAVE to be, Angie shows them they can stay small without having to play small.
