Let me introduce someone to you…
When I first heard about Carrie Wilkerson a few years ago, she was one of those people that everyone else was talking about – in a good way.
I was like ‘yeah, yeah’. And, didn’t think much of it.
Then, her name started popping up more … and more…
So, I decided to connect with Carrie. We’ve interviewed each other a few times over the last 2 years, and have emailed back and forth about life and work and have become friends. She’s also been on my podcast. You can listen to it here: Download Free Carrie Wilkerson Audio or on iTunes.
No, we don’t braid each others hair or anything, but I do like her and would call her a friend. 🙂
She’s energetic as heck and knows how to motivate people to get things done.
Carrie has just released a no-fluff, no-nonsense, very practical book called “The Barefoot Executive: The Ultimate Guide for Being Your Own Boss”
The best part? You can download a free chapter here
She sent me a copy of the book a few weeks back with a note that said “Thanks for being part of my life story. Love, Carrie”. Here it is on my nightstand for proof. 🙂
I’ve included a little excerpt from the book below.
But first, check out Carrie on CNN.
Here’s the link again:

— Begin Excerpt: Barefoot Executive —
The number of dollars I earn does not propel me. The number of
children I can help and the number of opportunities for my children
and for my family propel me. I have a son with extensive special
needs, and to be able to shop for therapies and treatments based on what
is best rather than by price tag is–well, it’s priceless.
Those are the kinds of choices I want for your family too.
So, when I say the money is never enough, what I mean is you are
never going to work really hard just to have a lot of money. Money
is intangible and is not really at its very core anything that
really motivates us. What motivates us is what the money can do
or the cause it can support or the choices that money allows
us to have.
You want to be rich in what?
Rich in blessing, rich in opportunities, rich in choices, rich in
freedom, rich in what? I want you to really think about your “why.”
