    I’m somewhat of a lulu addict, so are pretty familiar with their online and offline business model. They really do live at least some of the teachings in those books!

      I know! Love their products although I had a brief break from them after a bad experience at one of their stores. Obviously, I’m over it now!

    I make it a habit if I love a book on business to buy a copy and give it to each of our team members. I like them to see where I am coming from with ideas and perhaps spark some of their own!

      Great idea. Do you get feedback from your team on what they got out of the book? Do they typically read the books?
