Great book by Janice Allis.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Accidental Entrepreneur to be better than the print version?

Book offers great advice and inspiration for leaders and those in management, and those who are leaders of companies and organizations. Witty, funny, truthful and candid book. Love the stories and the experiences Janice writes about. She encourages one to chase their dream and to be passionate.

An easy listen, but not as in-depth as I was hoping for

The story of Janine's success provided a good overview of Boost's growth as a company, and was easy to listen to. There were some soft-skills tips and business insights, however most were common sense and not as in-depth as I was hoping for. If you are interested in more of the nitty-gritty of early entrepreneurship and growing a business, this book isn't for you.
