The inspiring, unlikely, laugh-out-loud story of how one woman learned to lead - and how she ultimately succeeded, not despite her many mistakes, but because of them. This is the story of how Kristen Hadeed built Student Maid, a cleaning company where people are happy, loyal, productive, and empowered, even while they're mopping floors and scrubbing toilets.

I learned so much about how hard it is to build a company and especially how to deal with people. What sparks among all, is compassion and how Kristen has learned along the way. I learned it is Ok to screw up and learn how valuable people are to a business.
Definitely and different take than most books and I loved every minute of it.

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

I was on midway of listening to this book when I had to do a test. It was an analytical test where I had to use some new excel tool which I had no prior experience with. The test took two hours with 30 questions. The first half an hour I got panicked and thought I wouldn't be able to do it. However, I remember the author's word to slow down and be in the moment and I became more relaxed and eventually finished the test.
