We’re humbled by the expert opinions of our small business marketing book, Worth Every Penny:  Build a Business That Thrills Your Customer and Still Charge What You’re Worth.

Here are a few words of praise from thought-leaders we have studied throughout the years or been privileged to do business with:

“I’ve written a few forewords in my life, but only for special books. Books that touched upon an entrepreneurial subject that had long ago been beaten to death but that did so with a verve, style, and substance that illuminated the well worn, weary subject in a way that stimulated a new and original take on it. Of course, in my mind, this book is such a book.”

— Michael E. Gerber, Author of the E-Myth books; Founder, Origination, Founder and Chief Dreamer, The Dreaming Room.

“ I honestly have to say that Worth Every Penny is one of the best business books I’ve ever read. The information is presented clearly, in an easy-to-digest format. The stories are delightful and memorable, and perfectly illustrate the important teaching points. This book is a combination of solid marketing and business advice, presented in a fresh new way, and some engaging twists that had me taking notes for my business and my clients. Bravo!”

“After readingSarah and Erin’s book, all we can say is that we wish this type of business education was available when we first started our  photography studio. We especially love the action steps at the end of each chapter, which helped us put into practice the information we’d just read. This book should be required reading for anyone who is thinking about going into business for themselves.”

“I have to say It’s one of the best marketing books ever and I love how you gave a variety of business scenarios beyond the photography industry.  Outstanding!  It’s a fast paced read packed full of golden information.  It’s sure to be on every business owners bookshelf, Kindle or iPad!  Well done.  I will highly recommend it to everyone.”
