I was asked to review this book and said sure. I used to read a lot of business books in the days when I ran a brick and mortar store. I enjoy hearing how someone created their business and made it successful.
This book is mostly family story and I enjoyed learning about the Semprevivo family.
The book’s overall theme is that no matter what happens to you, you can make something positive out of it if you never give up.
The family story starts with the father’s accident at work. His arm was caught in a machine and nearly killed him. My father had a hand caught in a machine at work so I could relate a little bit! Scary stuff!!
The family figured out how to make an income with the father severely injured by printing things for a local business. Later they moved across country and operated some restaurants. Then their son Joseph was diagnosed with diabetes and he eventually created a cookie that diabetic people could eat. They started selling them locally and then the business took off and became very successful.
I actually saw the cookies at the store the other day!
I enjoyed the story and appreciated their example of hard work and diligence. I also found the family’s deep love for each other very heartwarming!
If you like a good success story you may like to pick this one up. It’s an easy read!
