A Mindful Business Read with 5 Star Reviews Across the Board!
"I read Linda's book after hearing her speak at an Executive Women's Conference in New York. Hearing her speak, I was immediately drawn to her skillful use of humor, experience and mindfulness. I took the book with me on a trip a few days later and read the whole book in two or three days. It is not often that I break out in complete belly laughter reading a personal growth book! As a woman executive in the financial services industry, I have had several coaches and have read countless books about developing not only as a leader but also as a person. I love Linda's "keep it real" attitude and her keen insight into what might hold us back as successful women. I love her use of humor and wit, and see it not as a detraction from the content, but as a great tool to make me remember concepts and skills in my own life. After reading the book, I signed up for Linda's coaching program and the work I did there has had a profound impact on my personal growth. I have finally learned to listen to my inner voice and intuition, and have honed my skills on how to help that inner voice come out more often! I have gifted this book to many friends and colleagues, and they all loved it! Enjoy!"
"This is an absolute gem! I'm a social worker and know just about anything there is to know about how stress and emotional pressure negatively impacts quality of life. Never have I read anything so relevant (and sometimes hysterically funny) on HOW to deal with stress, thoughts, attitudes, emotions etc to your benefit at the workplace. Buy it, read it, share it!"
"This is truly one of the best books I've read in a long time. It wasn't only a good (and funny) read, it was the key to my inner business and it hit home. Each chapter captivates you and truly resonates with you regardless of who you are! You'll notice the book seems strangely familiar to you as you flip through the pages, that's because Linda is brilliantly telling you something you've always known, something most of us have ignored, disregarded, or overridden for years...The world would be a better place if this book was a mandatory read for all mankind. Read the book - the future 'you' will thank you!"
"Best book to revisit, specially during recovery! When I am not sure how to handle a situation I go back and read it. My favorite part was when the author ended up taking African History which served you well years later on your career."
"I was given the opportunity to read a pre-release of Lindas book and I liked it a lot! Even though I'm not really into "mindfulness", this book still contains tons of great points applicable throughout your business (and personal!) life. A must-read for anyone aspiring to improve both professional and personal skills!"
"You need to read this!! What a combination! As a CEO and mindfulness expert, her book is the essence of what we all need for success and sanity. Linda is truly focused on how to live and work most intelligently in this ever changing world. You need to read this humorous and intelligent book!""
"Get your inner business started with Ms. Bjork! First of all, this review is coming late. I have been reading and utilizing this wonderful guide to access inner leadership, since it came out. This is a wonderful guide and I am still reading it, probably for the third time. It has changed the way I do business, and the type of conversions I engage in pertaining business. I wish I could have a live version of Linda in my pocket, as she is such a valuable advisor to any business practitioner. With her help I was able to open up a dialogue in a critical part of a production. I can not recommend it enough. Get your inner business journey started! "
"Excellent book! So relevant for your personal and professional life. To really understand the foundation on how the brain works and why it is so important to take time out during the day. In this book you will find a relevant toolbox for dealing with things like acceptance, trust, nonjudgment, letting go etc. It is only by living in the presence that you can find true peace and happiness. I would also greatly recommend that you sign up for Linda's 8 week Mindfulenss course! Such a great compliment to the book."
