About the book
The Road Less Traveled is based on the author’s working experience. His book’s philosophy revolves around seven key personal attributes that a leader of an organization must have. He or she must also pay attention to the hiring process by developing these same attributes throughout the organization. Here are the seven key personal attributes:
1.) Have discipline in your foundations 2.) Have an entrepreneurship mindset 3.) Be a person of purpose 4.) Be a productive person, not a busy person 5.) Never compromise on integrity and character 6.) Look for passion and perseverance 7.) Embrace innovation and hire innovator.
I already told you more than enough. No spoiler alert, sorry. The book is available on Amazon.

His 2 favorite quotes by Jim Rohn are :

I strongly believe in personal development too and as a leader and female entrepreneur, I believe that it is one’s responsibility to grow. I have not read the book yet, but I have a strong feeling that this book has a lot to offer in terms of resilience, which is key in entrepreneurship and of building a proper company culture.
The only limit that your company will reach is the one you will set. Aim high and with the right tools, you will head for success. Eva Arissani
