Contrary to popular belief, we don’t spend all our time chewing. Sometimes, we read! If you like to curl up with a good book, too, we’ve got a few recommendations for you.
Small Brand America tells the story of 25 companies that have jumped into the competitive world of the grocery industry. Notes author Steve Akley, “The whole time I was researching and writing the book, I kept saying each of the 25 profiles reads like a book within a book. I literally couldn’t wait to write each section after I spoke to the person.”
One of the people he spoke to was none other than Glee Gum’s founder and president, Deborah Schimberg! Yup, Glee Gum is one of the 25 small brands featured. You can find this exciting book in paperback and on Kindle. And, if you Tweet, follow @steveakley for more info!
New this week is another inspiring read: The Shift, by Tori Johnson!
Good Morning America contributor Tory Johnson made the shift from employee to entrepreneur and built two multi-million dollar, career-focused businesses after a painful firing. Now, after a second major shift —losing more than 60 pounds in a single year—Tory is on a mission to help others change their minds for a better life. She’s just penned a book about her journey, called The Shift: How I Finally Lost Weight & Discovered a Happier Life.
The Shift is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound. As an added bonus, Tory included Sugar-Free Lemon-Lime Glee Gum in her Shift Kit — a carefully curated box of products celebrating her book launch. Purchase a VIP ticket for any Shift with Tory Tonight events, and you’ll score one of your own. Sweet, huh? Twitterers can learn more by following @ToryJohnson.
