Your life is your message to the world. So embrace the journey and live it out loud.

                I'm shattered. Have just read this book in one sitting.
                No bookmark required.
                I ran out of highlighter pens half way through.
                As an entrepreneur/artist/content creator/designer with a squillion ginormous ideas every 5 seconds ... my heart is singing louder than ever since reading Lisa's journey.
                If it can be IMAGINED ...it can be CREATED. Never let anyone tell you it can't be done.
                So much juicy soul food in this book. Thank you (:

                  Lisa is very engaging with the reader. Her drive is as inspiring as it is contagious.
                  Thoroughly enjoyed this book, and managed to fit in a chapter even when I was snowed under with business and "didn't really have time".
                  You really do have the same number of hours in your day as Richard Branson.

                  Comments about Daring and Disruptive:

                  Coming from Lisa Messenger and being a fan of Renegade Collective, I found myself rather disappointed reading 'Daring and Disruptive'. Unfortunately, there is very little about the book that is daring OR disruptive, it's very much inline with every other book of it's kind that I've read - Lisa's personal experiences and the gorgeous, chic appearance and feel of the book being the only real difference. No doubt it was written to spark up the average Joe or Susan, and I'm sure it will inspire a number of people, but sadly, overall, this book is as average as its market. Where's the hard hitting advice? The real substance? Lisa's editors were right in saying that she needed to delve deeper and include more of herself. People are passed hearing the same self-help-esque 'trust in the universe' lines and tired, overused quotes. All in all, Daring and Disruptive was well-written and and an easy read for the aspiring entrepreneur, but lacks that special something and is ultimately unmoving.
