Start Me Up: Tips, Tales, and Truths about Starting Up and Starting Over
Jeannie Edmunds, author
This genre-bending self-help/business/memoir is insightful, witty, down to earth and provocative. The stories are entertaining, the tips are actionable, and the takeaway is this: even an ordinary life can be lived in an extraordinary way, and in every crisis there is opportunity. A reader may not need to know what to do when confronted by a machine gun while on a news assignment, or how to get invited to sing in the White House, or the secrets to producing a successful infomercial. But as this book shows, many of the skills and attributes acquired in these career and life experiences can be adapted to starting a new business, changing a career, or making an important life decision.
