-Lisa Kanarek, author and founder of WorkingNaked.com
In true Carrie Wilerson style she explains the importance of the “how?” and the steps of the “how?” through the filter of your “WHY?.” I believe this is what sets Carrie apart from all others and why she is number 1. I was in the middle of a 3.5 million dollar product launch and got stuck…..I knew exactly who to call for the answers, Carrie Wilkerson. Asked, answered, success!
Few people in the world would I consider True Leaders, and ever fewer would I consider to have a genius for what they do. Carrie Wilkerson does. Her new book The Barefoot Executive is one amazing work, and if you are in the marketplace working, you need to read this amazing book. It is so powerful they are going to have to issue WARNING labels with it as it is deadly to your mediocrity. Brilliant. Powerful. Genius.
Forget getting a job – go out and make one! That’s right, your best chance for long-standing life security lies in running your own business-one where your unique strengths meet the needs of the marketplace. The Barefoot Executive shows you how to make that happen.
