Products for People Who Work at Home: The 1 Book 1

Thomas Edison once said, "I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others... I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent it." I love his philosophy - his thoughtfulness - his generosity - his ability to look at the bigger picture.

  1. This book would be a great motivator for me. I sometimes wonder if one person matters in this chaotic world.

  2. This book sounds very motivating I feel that when you are in buisness for youreself You really need motivation because it is so easy to give up

  3. This book sounds awesome! Right now the only inspirational books I read are the Chicken Soup books, which I love.


    The 1 BOOK will be a great addition to my library,

    whether I win it or purchase it.

  5. I've read and reread Suzanne Somers books. She's an icon of inspiration. I also read Permission Slips and a few others that I can't recall at the moment.


  6. I didn't read many inspirational books last year, but I did re-read Parenting beyond Belief & Raising Freethinkers. Those 2 books always give me inspiration & motivation!

  7. Man's Search For Meaning was my inspirational book of the year. It also inspired my father. Also, "The 1 Book" looks like a lovely coffee table book and relevant to my interests.

  8. I have lately been reading a very old inspirational book "How to enjoy your life and your job" by Dale Carnegie. It is still a good one!
    The book you are giving away looks interesting too.

  9. Thanks for this awesome give-away! This book would be right up my alley for staying positive and upbeat. I finsihed Eat,Pray,Love. I am so excited that they are making it into a movie. I love Julia Roberts!

  10. I work only partly from home, but I bet this would still be an awesome book to have.

    The most inspirational book I read recently is "Adrift" by Steven Callahan, a seriously amazing person.

  11. WEll, I found The prizewinner of defiance., ohio pretty inspiring- it was about a woman who almost supported her family of 12 singlehandedly by winning contests.

  12. Pre-Levi I read coming and going. Post-Levi not so much. Being a single wham has definitely taken a whole lot of adjusting. And, I've only recently gotten to where I've been able to juggle it all and begin to read about as much as I used to. I've missed reading...and I've especially missed inspiring, food for the soul kind of reads.

  13. I would love to read this! I need a little push. My youngest is going into kindergarten in the fall and I need to justify staying at home during the day. I want it to be doing something that I really enjoy! ~Lanie

  14. I would love this book for my husband. In an earlier post you said you thought your husband was a business genius. I feel the same way about my husband. He is all about the business world and love learning about the way capitalism works. He's always trying to think about what's going to be the next big thing.

    And I'm like: "Dude...let's just get these diapers changed."

    I'm lucky to have him. My life would be pretty boring without his inspirational remarks.

  15. I like the idea of using a business for good...I have a friend who started a small business about a year ago, and while it's doing well, he is trying to incorporate the idea of challenging people to do good things for each other. I think that's awesome!

  16. I have not read any inspiration books recently that is my husbands type of book. He would love this because he needs things like this to keep him going. Especially when he gets into a rut at work.

  17. I love reading quotes and books that "kick me in the pants" (you made me giggle when I read that) In our foundation,we have been working on a series that promotes teamwork. The series is taken out of the Law of The Big Picture. It has opened my eyes on how I respond and contribute to to our team and with people in general.

  18. This looks like a neat book. The most recent "motivational" book I read (and it's a bit of a stretch to call it that, but anyway...) was a book about the stories behind some of the old hymns we still sing in some of our churches today. Not really motivating - I guess inspirational would be a better word for it! But still enjoyable.

  19. I love inspirational books, too. I wish that I could think of one right now, but I can't. I guess they weren't too inspirational! Maybe I will check this one out.

  20. I DO love inspirational books, but mind is drawing a blank as to which ones I read last year. This is probably a stretch but, reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle inspired me to eat more locally grown food and grow some of my own. Several parenting books inspired me to make some changes to the way I was dealing with my son's tantrums.

    I just ordered a book about writing motherhood, since I'm hoping to do a little more writing this year (maybe some freelance!!). Hoping to get inspired from that, too!

    This book definitely looks like something right up my alley!!

  21. Looks like an interesting format- I would love a shot at this book. Maybe it will help me get moving towards some life goals...
