You Bring The Peanut Butter,

I'll Get the Bread......

Best Friends in Business

Kirsten Poe Hill & Renee E Warren

Maybe you're like me, and you have constant delusions of granduer, when you're letting your mind wander and you find yourself developing your own business in your head, (my delusions are so big, I even write them down sometimes). I have this crazy dream that someday I will be able to make money doing what I love.

These two gutsy women did exactly that. They share their story with us, not only their aspirations, but also with a true "how to" look at how they made it happen. I love how honest they are about their mistakes and pitfalls as well as their successes and what it took for them to come out successful, in a world and a time where few businesses do. I also liked that these women took what could have been a very dry, dull "how to" business book and turned it into an informative, fun and often inspiring story by adding their personal experiences to the mix.

The authors Kirsten Poe Hill and Renee E Warren are the cofounders of Noelle-Elaine Media Inc. a New York City based even management, media relations, and production firm with many notable corporate, nonprofit and celebrity clients.
