Ouch!!! Wow!! YES!!!

What did you like most about Firmer Figures: Fess Up or Mess Up?

Excellent! And I'm not just saying that. I've been in business for 5 years..... or at least that's what I'd have told you 7 hours ago, before listening to this brilliant book. Georgette delivers tough tough truths that hit hard. You can't stay asleep to the reality that the figures just aren't fit for business once you 'read' this book but I'm not depressed or overwhelmed, just excited and more than ready to get things sorted out once and for all!

The book is packed full of practical and very useful information and tips. I love that Georgettes storytelling and natural straight-talking style allowed the book to seem like it was talking directly to me. She definitely knows her subject.

My daughter who is currently contemplating a business start up spent some time listening in too and actually said "Mum, I really need that book"!

This book has heralded a new beginning for me and my business!
Thanks so much Georgette
I have knowledge I didn't have before and I really feel like I can start again more intelligently now thanks to you
