Jennifer has written one of the most beautifully simple and powerful books any entrepreneur or person will ever read. We often joke that entrepreneurs would rather work 16 hours a day for themselves vs 8 hours for someone else—and soon it’s no longer a joke. Please give yourself permission to play before it’s too late! Thank you, Jennifer, for this most profound gift to all of us.
