Hair salons and day spas across the country are making as much as $300,000 a year - and you can, too. Whether you want to start a small salon out of your home or open a full-blown day spa, this audio guide will explain how to succeed. You don't even have to be a stylist! If you've got strong business skills, you can open a salon/spa, rent space to stylists, then sit back and rake in the cash.

Whilst some of this is worth listening to, it is worth knowing in advance that some of it is completely irrelevant to the UK and considerably more is outdated when talking about the internet and marketing. Like most books there are a few golden nuggets.

The groundbreaking book that gives every woman the practical skills they need to begin Playing Big. Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result.

A Richard and Judy Book Club Selection.
Shortlisted for The Guardian First Book Award, 2005.

After 200 years of farming in Yorkshire, the Benson family was forced to sell up. They found, like so many, that the land could no longer support them. While the farming way of life never came naturally to Richard Benson, a point that sent him running to London, he still feels his parents' loss and returns to do what he can to help.

When George Mottershead moved to the village of Upton-by-Chester in 1930 to realise his dream of opening a zoo without bars, his four-year-old daughter June had no idea how extraordinary her life would become. Soon her best friend was a chimpanzee called Mary, lion cubs and parrots were vying for her attention in the kitchen, and finding a bear tucked up in bed was no more unusual than talking to a tapir about granny's lemon curd. Pelican, penguin, or polar bear - for June, they were simply family.

Following a drunken misunderstanding, Simon Dawson gave up his job in the city, moved to the wilds of Exmoor and became an accidental self-sufficient smallholder with an array of animals. But that was years ago now. Following up on his first book, Pigs in Clover, this is the story of what happens when he suddenly realises that his life is changing all over again. He's not quite the spring chicken that he used to be: he is, horror of horrors, getting older.

Laugh, cry & cringe is what I did throughout this book and loved every minute. I didn't want to put it down and I didn't want it to end.
