"One of the most inspiring and informative books that I have ever read! As a young entrepreneur in the real estate market, it provided a wealth of information in regards to resources for small business owners, marketing ideas, insightful formulas for success (planning, researching, building an effective team, etc) and much more. An entrepreneurship\'s journey helped remind me that my big picture dream of a Real Estate Sales and Development firm is ascertainable!! Thank you, Kathy!"

"History teaches that only entrepreneurs can pull us out of recessions--the more entrepreneurs we have, the more growth we'll enjoy. By telling her remarkable story, Kathy Freeland makes a valuable contribution to the economy. She helps move the focus of entrepreneurship from the individual to the journey on which they embark, with all the complexity and uncertainty it entails. This, then, is an important book for prospective entrepreneurs and scholars."
