Bet on Me by Annette Verschuren (147)

This is a great nonfiction book about leading and succeeding in business and in life. And who wouldn’t need advice about these important aspects of living an excellent life.

In this important book, Annette Verschuren lays out her inspiring philosophy for what it takes to lead and succeed in today’s economy: tenacity, the willingness to embrace risk and an unwavering commitment to remain true to yourself, no matter how unorthodox you may seem.

She draws on her experiences as a Cape Breton farm girl who went on to lead Home Depot Canada’s expansion from 19 to 179 stores, among other business ventures.

She outlines a bold vision that will change the way you approach your work and business. The book’s key message is that modern leadership is not about learning skills and techniques in order to become some else but to become truly who you are. You must learn to trust in, listen to, and fully be yourself.

This book takes readers on one woman’s journey of authentic and transformational leadership. And when it comes to taking the path less travelled, there could be no better guide.

We all need to read this book in our current climate of creating work for ourselves and making us productive people in our community.

I love this book and will be purchasing my own copy.
