This book is a motivator filled with great advice and values. It's a tool for success...
I loved the book. It is very insightful and helped me see an indepth side of fashion. My biggest take away was his advice and emphasis on being great. I loved the fact that, I learned something. Other fashion books don't show the business side of fashion... This one does. The actionable insight given in, the end, was great. Mark just gained a new fan. I have new things to look at and learn on my fashion journey. 😆
Being in the Menswear industry for just under 30 years, I feel cheated never having had the opportunity to work with and support Mark's success! Trust me, he did fine without me.
In the inspirational book, Mark is challenging and direct, like any outstanding leader should be. He really delivers here and I hope it's a "best-seller" because it's motivational and clear message can inspire not only me, as it did --- but others who get into this business and will soon realize "a kick in the a (dot, dot), is a step forward!! Listening to Mark's story & guidance, made my weekend and set me up for my next 15 year run, hope to see him at the top! Paul Cronin.
Ps.. Seems to be a great Dad & Husband too.
