    I personally had the honor to get a copy of Gold’s book and I will say it was very inspirational as far as how to make a team, stay inspired, and make tough decisions that will lead to great success. Gold’s book was truly inspirational and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to start their own business, or anyone wanting to feel inspired. Love the book!
