Would you consider the audio edition of The Smarta Way to Do Business to be better than the print version?

I went out and bought the print version of the book after listening to the audio edition, as there were many bits of information I wanted to return to and I knew I would find the summaries and references at the end of each chapter useful to return to in the future.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I really enjoyed listening to the case studies and was inspired by the many examples of entrepreneurs who have found a way to add an individual signature or a creative flair to their businesses.

I wanted to get out there and start a business of my own!
