Easy | Relatable | Clear This book has been such an easy read, very relatable in so many ways. I have found myself thinking hey.. that’s me, that’s what I do! I love how Jodi is able to explain exactly what is going on in the brain in certain situations and how we can control it. I have been recommending this book to friends, family, bosses and colleagues. Something I’m sure they will be passing on for for many years to come!Kaylee - 23/8/23
Game-Changing | Orientating | Relevant The Pocket MBA is a game changer - I was in a full time inner city job, commuting 15 hours per week when I started reading Jodi’s book. After doing the values exercise in section 1, I quickly realised my stress and exhaustion was related to a job that wasn’t aligned with my values which I uncovered were; family, freedom, fun and financial stability. The tools Jodi gives you in The Pocket MBA helped me find work that aligned with my values and as a result my kids are happy, my husband is happy and most importantly, I am happy. This book is for anyone wanting tools to live a better way and be successful - whatever that might look like for you.Kelly - 24/8/23

Bloody good read!Monique - 6/8/23
