“Broke” is a great equalizer. It levels the playing field, gives the edge to hustle and heart over money and market forces. Best of all, it forces you to dig deep, to invest in yourself and trust in yourself_ and maybe to kick yourself in the butt enough times that the full force of your personality has a chance to shine through.
This book is a must-read for aspiring entrepreneurs who need to break the glass ceiling and be more than just broke.
