The YFE Book Club is reading Melody Biringer’s Craving Success. Find out more about the Club and Melody’s book here: http://books.yfe.me. This is week one of four where we are focusing on Chapters 1 through 7. Your second set of discussion questions are below, prepared by moderator Jessica. You still have time to buy the book (ebook) and jump in.
Throughout Craving Success and in her business branding Melody uses the term “start-up junkie” to describe how she works best in terms of running her businesses. She has been really successful in doing so and building things on her own terms despite some of the ‘failures’ she overcame. She is a great example of someone who carved her own path and let the ups and downs of her businesses shape her into who she is today.
