Birth Of A Unicorn, Six Basic Steps To Success by Heather Wilde is an insightful business book littered with autobiographical elements that detail the author’s journey to success. Wilde exudes wisdom as she details six practical steps to finding success in her own life and career through Uncertainty, Significance, Love/Connection, Growth, Contribution, and Certainty. In this book, the reader is taken through each of the steps with examples learned through life experiences, mistakes, adventures, and achievements of Wilde, her husband, and cats. From the six steps, one unifying idea is that our identity is connected with our search for happiness.
An endearing read, Birth Of A Unicorn enchanted me with the success story of Heather & her husband. Ups and downs of their marriage and careers were exposed in the hopes that their experiences would be helpful to the reader. Their cats played a pivotal role in their travels and gave some comedic relief to the seriousness of some encounters. This book kept me rooting for the author and her husband, as they left meandered careers and eventually found work as partners together for Evernote.
In Birth Of A Unicorn, we see the loss of jobs, pursuit of education, relocating for new jobs, the chase of dreams, and travel to foreign countries. Adventurous and thrilling, this book had me captivated from the beginning. Overall, I was left with a sense of achievement as I rooted for Wilde and her search for identity and happiness. She had seemingly found what we would classify as success, and in finding that success, continued looking ahead to the future.
The author does a great job keeping readers captivated in her story, while also leaving room for readers to reflect upon their own path to success. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an uplifting memoir that takes you through entrepreneurship and family life and leaves you feeling like anything is possible.

Hiding in plain sight by Thomas LeBrun, is the action-filled true story detailing a famous executive protection specialist’s life. It takes readers through his childhood, to his approach to weightlifting and martial arts all the way to providing security for entertainers.
LeBrun writes in an engaging way and explains his job in detail, underlining the difference between himself and a bodyguard, as he is an executive protection specialist. His life is intriguing, and the narration provides provocative details, but while there are some specifics about his family that are shared with the reader, the focus remains on sharing experiences of events in his storied life rather than taking a deep emotional dive into them.
I appreciated all the references to pop culture of the time. This does an excellent job of setting the backdrop of the story, making it feel grounded and immersing readers in that time. And these cultural references also serve to focus the story, and the reader, on deeper themes such as the attack on the twin towers or Nelson Mandela’s release from prison.
I enjoyed the photos that are included in the book. It made the book feel familiar and personal, so they were deeply appreciated. I enjoyed the book and felt it was an illuminating memoir. It provides an intriguing examination of ‘toxic masculinity’ and shows how persistence and hard work pays off.
Hiding in Plain Sight is a thought-provoking memoir that takes readers through the various personal moments in Thomas Lebrun’s life. The author also includes personal items that help the reader connect with his life; like his reference letters, photos and quotes from real people. This helps the story feel authentic and I think will it appeal to most readers. I would like to end this review with the author’s quote: “Further, I explained that Executive Protection Specialists operate as low-profile chameleon. With me, I called it “hiding in plain sight”.”

Wisdom Of The Men shares your life story and wisdom gained over the years to help readers improve their lives. Why was this an important book for you to write?
When I was in high school I had the great privilege to be mentored by Frank McCourt, winner of the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for his memoir about his impoverished childhood in Ireland, “Angela‘s Ashes.“ He inspired me and many other people to want to be writers.
I’ve been writing books for years but I never felt like I wrote anything of the quality of Angela‘s Ashes, and I wanted to do that because my ambition is to win the Pulitzer Prize and follow in his footsteps.
As you will see when you read the book, wisdom of the men came organically out of my experiences in the men’s self-help movement, and the vision for the book evolved into what it is because of my experiences in life and work. I needed to write this book because I needed to create my life‘s work masterpiece, so I put everything I had into this to make it the best book I could possibly write.
What is a common obstacle you find many people face when becoming an entrepreneur?
The biggest common obstacle for people who want to be entrepreneurs or are in their journey is that they don’t want to try and fail because they don’t want to look stupid. It’s unfortunate because this obstacle holding so many people back is for the most part entirely imaginary as no one is thinking about you or anything you were doing. If you’re holding yourself back because you don’t want people to think you’re stupid or foolish or a loser, you really need to understand that no one is thinking about you at all. They’re just thinking about them self.
What is one piece of advice someone gave you that had the biggest impact on your life?
One of my great mentors, Dan Kennedy, started saying something I picked up on, “rich people work hard.“
For many years I wasn’t sure if I should allow myself to portray myself in my marketing as a hard-working person because so much of my work is about Celebrity, and I was concerned that Celebrity required a lifestyle of ease. But having asked many rich people including Martha Stewart, Ice-T, Dr Oz, and others who you will read about in the book, “do rich people work hard?“ I am very confident that self-made rich people do work hard, and this advice really allowed me to focus on working hard and use my hard work as a marketing tool and asset that has made me lots of money.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
There’s so many things that I want people to take away from the book, to narrow it down to only one thing would be doing the book a great disservice. In that spirit, to answer this question, I want people to understand the importance of “over delivering“ and I hope that this answer in its own way over delivers on your question.

There was a time when one of two paths was sufficient. However, as time passes the need for alternatives grows direr. There is a need for more options. Entrepreneurship is the go-to for most who find that they do not fit into traditional corporate positions or in the military. This book is a pragmatic guide to becoming an independent courier, but I found that the material and guidance within the book can be applied to all kinds of entrepreneurship.
The author starts off the learning process with awareness. This is required no matter the kind of business you are looking to start. Due diligence reveals not just what you need to start but also the possible barriers you might encounter on the way. Then the author delves into specialization and tools of the trade. After which, he talks about the future of the business. Therefore, this is not just a book about the independent courier business. It is a book about entrepreneurship with independent courier services as a case study.
J.T. Hustlez presents simple concepts in very simple language. The author is not looking to educate MBA students. He is looking to share his personal experiences in the business to inspire people who might be tempted to use their lack of academic qualifications as crutches. Textbooks present theoretical aspects. This book is not theoretical. Through the book, the reader will see the practical aspects of the business. They will see the business of independent courier services from a realistic point of view.
The book is 53 pages long. That makes it easier to refer to. It also makes it easier to understand and retain the information therein. Often, experience matters more as an entrepreneur than education. This book is both. It offers practical advice as well as wisdom gained through experience. In the awareness stage of the entrepreneurship process, this book is a good and useful resource to have.
The Drive to Freedom is a straightforward and informative guide detailing how to become an independent courier, but much more than that this book will provide readers with the critical tools they will need to be successful in a variety of business ventures.
