Discovering Your Inner Samurai: Online Book Tour

Discovering Your Innner Samurai by Dr. Susan L. ReidPlease join me today in this stop on the online book tour of: “Discovering your Inner Samurai.”  Isn’t that a great name for a book?

Discovering your Inner Samurai is written by Dr. Susan L. Reid (see also her Alkamae blog).  The subtitle explains more:  The Entrepreneurial Woman’s Journey to Business Success. 

If you’re like me, you’re intrigued by the title, wondering, ‘what’s an Inner Samurai’?  Your Inner Samurai is the name that Susan gives to the faint inner voice within each of us.  It’s the voice that guides you and keeps you in touch with your inner self.  Just like the Japanese warrior it is named after, your Inner Samurai is powerful.  Susan writes:

This book serves as a guide to those wanting to build a different kind of business — a business from the inside out. * * * From your Inner Samurai place.”

Discovering Your Inner Samurai is the kind of book that helps you constructively channel all the emotions and feelings you have about your business or your desire to start a business. We all have fears and doubts. How tragic it would be if we let mere fear hold us back from achieving our potential. We’d never know the joy and adventure of being in business.

Susan helps the reader confront doubt and make wise choices about using the 1,440 minutes each of us has each day.

About the Book

This virtual book tour stop is just one way we are working with our authors to market their work. It’s bloggers like you who make us look good.

  3. Yvonne, working with you was a wonderful experience! I’d recommend it to anyone.

    For others reading these comments, let me tell you the story Yvonne alludes to.

    A few years ago I went to Yvonne with the book of a dear friend, John Wyckoff. John was one of our experts here at Small Business Trends until he passed away last year.

    John was suffering from prostate cancer. But he had a dream: before he died he wanted to publish the 2nd edition of his book about how to run a powersports dealership. The book had been published previously by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, but had gone out of print. He updated the book and wanted it re-issued in time for the annual big powersports industry conference.

    WME Books moved heaven and earth to get the book into print in about 60 days, in time to meet his dream. It was an awesome effort. And John met his dream.

    John was a self-made millionaire many times over. He didn’t need the money from book sales. For him it was not about the money. It was about leaving a legacy before he passed away.

    That’s the beauty of what WME Books accomplished for John.

    After the book was published I set up a website for John’s book and for his articles. He and I kept the website updated until he became too ill.

    I’ve decided to keep the site running indefinitely in John’s honor. The small monthly hosting fees are nothing compared with the idea of keeping a legacy going. Here’s John’s website:


  4. Sounds like a great book for early entrepreneurs! Does it mention about the honor and code of the samurai and how to use it in business? =D

  5. Sounds like an interesting book. [Note to self: Be careful with the sword! ;)]
    Our company co-sponsored a book release party in Gothenburg. The title of the book is Beautiful Business and it is full with stories on different female entrepreneurs.
