“This book is spot on in my opinion. Barbie is refreshingly blunt and honest about her real-time live-ride in business, and what I love is that she kept coming back to her own values. She has found her True North, her natural compass. She tells us how to do that through valuable insights and practical concepts. And that is what makes people winners.” – Janet Fogarty, Chair Vistage International, Performance Catalyst, CEO Coach.
