Laurie Goodman has had a great impact on me. I met her when I went to a friends home and she also happened to be visiting. She opened the door and let me in and instantly I felt like she was a safe place. Somehow, I ended up sharing with them a secret that I had been carrying for a while. I had significant debt with my fledgling business and my husband didn't know about it. Up until that point, no one knew.
I thank Laurie for being a catalyst for me. Her presence alone helped me to address one of the most difficult things in my life to date.
She asked me to take a picture for her book and the message I created was about me having the courage to talk about what is difficult, because there is freedom on the other side. I eventually mustered the same courage I created my message about and shared my secret with my husband. And after some time, I felt that freedom that I had created my message about.
I spoke at Laurie's book launch and the topic of my talk was my story about how I hid my secret. I told 200 women, with my husband in the audience, about my debt. The number of women that approached me afterwards with similar stories was astounding. I was asked to speak at the 2015 Mompreneur Conference, and told a room full of individuals about my story, experiencing the same thing after, multiple women sharing their similar stores and finding a place where they didn't feel so alone and ashamed.
I thank Laurie for being a catalyst for me. Her presence alone helped me to address one of the most difficult things in my life to date. I can't thank her enough for having the courage to follow something that started as a whisper inside. She created an opportunity for me to have the courage to speak what I had on the inside too.Natalie Haynes

Laurie, Laurie, Laurie,
What an amazing experience you have given me at the age of 74 - me, in a book of importance to women! I am floating around feeling pretty special - you did that and I love you for it! Friday evening at your book launch was so memorable, the wonderful and beautiful women being so brave sharing their stories - I cried, laughed and felt goosebumps and felt their truths.
I cried, laughed and felt goosebumps and felt their truths
Lynn and I were crying together during Suzanne's story - it was something too familiar. The whole night was so emotional, moving and rewarding. I have read the whole book 3 times and already shared some quotes with friends in cards I send. I really wish this had happened to me in my 30's but grateful it came to me at all. I really feel like a different person Laurie!
Thank you sweetheart, you are "Wonder Woman"!!!!
When things settle for you I would like to get a couple more books and have you sign them for me if possible, great gifts for close friends and family.
Love you a bunch with Big Hugs,Marie Hamilton
Enterprising Hearts is beautifully crafted. From the moment one picks it up, with the feel of the inspirational cover by artist Laura Newton, to the quality of the prints and pages inside, to the heart felt messages from Laurie and the messages from the participants, one is unable to put it down.
Beautifully crafted book that is impossible to put down.
It is not widely recognized that entrepreneurs, whilst working tirelessly on their businesses, have the capacity give back to their communities. This book recognizes small business owners who have a social conscience, a conscience that is at the very core of their being. This book would be a perfect addition to any coffee table, board room, waiting room, library, and collection. Whilst I am also a contributor in this book I still hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have.Michelle Emson
I'm the first to agree with the age old adage that a book can't be judged by its cover but in this particular instance, the cover truly is an invitation to experience inspirational delights and wisdom within the pages of Laurie Goodman's book, Enterprising Hearts, the third in her Life Messages series.
to uplift, to inspire, and to shine a light of hope
Goodman's photographic gifts as an expert lens manipulator are evident as is her sincerity in the letters she writes about the individual 'business owners with a heart.' There are other written contributors as well and the book's purpose - to uplift, to inspire, and to shine a light of hope in our sometimes otherwise dark world are beautifully apparent.Elizabeth Marques Kogan
