Get Scrappy Today!

Posted by Kristin Arnold on August 23, 2016

I first heard Terri Sjodin speak about being “scrappy” when she was promoting her book, Mentoring, that she co-authored with Floyd Wickman (which I also highly recommend!).  That was over 15 years ago…and now she is sharing the precise details about how to be “scrappy” in her NEW book, Scrappy: A Little Book About Choosing to Play Big.

So what is “Scrappy?” According to Terri, it’s a determined “effort to get around an obstacle or challenge faster, smarter – in a clever way, even “against the odds.”  It’s about choosing to play BIG, “being feisty, enthusiastic, gutsy, lively and spunky.”  

As I read the stories and the strategies, I began to get inspired…to get scrappy about certain BIG goals I have in my life.  She even provides a summary at the end of each chapter with a few key questions to help you achieve your goals.

I believe this will be a book I routinely take off the bookshelf and re-read whenever I need to get scrappy!

Its release date is TODAY, August 23rd and Scrappy was selected as one of Amazon’s Editors’ Picks: Best Books of August in the category of Business & Leadership! You can check it out here.
