This engaging story draws you in from the synopsis. It makes you curious to know how one can go from loss to leadership. The first part takes you back to when times were easier and kids could just be kids, while the smell of dinner cooking lingered in the air. It reminded me of my childhood. This story feels relatable and is layered in such a way that you feel a roller-coaster of emotions just in the first few paragraphs. This will be an enjoyable read.

"Must read for navigating the work place successfully!!!”
I found the book to be full of excellent practical information, I loved the straight to the point advice that is easy to understand and put into action. I have been in Call Center Management for over 25 years, in that time I have met a lot people in the beginning of there careers, so many of them were intelligent but did not know how to handle the corporate environment. Knowing what needs to be done is only half the battle in the work place, you must know how to professionally carry your self in order to be respected and get your ideas heard. Nicole literally gives you the script!

“Confirmation for me straight from the author." FOR ME Sby CL
Here is a testimony for you & your book is connected to it as well. SORRY TO BE SO LENGTHY BUT I GOTTA SAY THIS. So...l have been praying about my job & asking God how to keep myself aligned in righteousness as I look for ways to improve my conduct and character at work. (No, I do NOT sound off or anything of that nature but who can't use some gentle reminders?) Then your books come in the mail (in perfect timing I must add). I read half of the book in my favorite room (l won't tell you where that is. ?). l get daily prayer emails, & l listen to Charles Stanley each morning though I don't always go in order of his sermons. I picked one called DRESSED FOR THE BATTLE. Nik, your book hit the reset button for me as your messages tied into what my spirit needed to be told with the sermon as well. You would think some things are common sense but we all need that recap every now and again. It was an easy read, I enjoyed it. This book also represents who Nicole is as a person-I remember her speaking to us at the Carnegie Library in East Liberty about this as well! (I didn't forget!) Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
“I read this book in pretty much one sitting because unlike other self-help books”
First of all , I give Ms. Mann's book two big thumbs up for a multitude of reasons! First, this book is a real page turner. I read this book in pretty much one sitting because unlike other self-help books, this is a fun read. The side stories and anecdotes are entertaining and many times just outright funny! Secondly, this is a real "common sense" book. There are no startling revelations made here. Just a common sense approach to various job situations with common sense, effective solutions. Often you will say to yourself, Why didn't I think of that myself? And lastly, as a retired manager in a law enforcement position, I supervised some of the most talented, brilliant people around. That being said, they all came with some personal “baggage". I would have made this book required reading for my staff because it could be the gateway between management and staff.
“Excellent Business Book” by MsHB3008

Very highly recommended!
