I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

We are still in the search of inspiring novels that have everyone grow more confidence and not be afraid to make some changes with their lives. Lindsey Teague Moreno does more than share inspirational stories from her life but gives the readers tools that will help them achieve their dream and grow more confidence in themselves. Even though this book is focus

Great intro book for female entrepreneurs

After making millions selling essential oils, Lindsay Teague Moreno found her true passion in life was to inspire female entrepreneurs. In her new book, she takes the lesson she learned as a serial entrepreneur to share her 10 successful philosophies to help other mothers realize their dreams.

What I first fell in love with was her discussion on finding your thing and thinking long-term. She perfectly explains how to figure out what you want to do and how

So thankful to have been part of the launch team and was able to receive an advanced reader copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

I don’t read many business books cover to cover. I read this in 2 days, would’ve been sooner if my kids didn’t interrupt haha!

I especially don’t cry when I read books, I cried to this one. No, more like sobbed. But in the best way.

I’ve been following Lindsay on social media for over a year and this book exceeded my expectations. Every word felt like we were sitti

I'll be honest - I thought the cover was cute, so I requested it. I'm not familiar with the author; I assumed this would be a generalized women-in-business book. When I started the book and found out the author is part of an essential oils MLM, I nearly quit reading. But I soldiered on and found that this was actually a pretty good common-sense approach to business primer. It's easy to read and well-organized. Some of the language in the book drove me insane ("momtrepreneur" and constant mention ...more

This is a great read for wanna be mom-entrepreneurs and current mom bosses! I found her writing style very fun and entertaining. This was really informational too, with lots of practical tips on growing your business, big or small.

Disclaimer: I received this ARC from publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a very good book if you want to start your own business (even if you still have no idea what type of business yet) or if you already have your own business. It has business savvy, wisdom, wit and a whole lot of authenticity, all of which makes for an educational but entertaining book, never boring.
It is not, however, without flaws. The introduction and the first chapter felt like a long introduction and I found myself wishing it would get to the point. But no worries; it gets good, reall

Wow!!!!! Wow!!!! WOW!!!! TALK ABOUT REALNESS!!! This book has had me all in my feelings for many reasons. But mostly this part where @lindsayteague talks about the apologies. MANY times I've felt like I've had the "need" to apologize when being me, when talking about my business or even when tryjng to talk about it. This right here keeps ringing in my head/ear: "The first step to letting your freak flag fly is to stop apologizing for who you are. Stop apologizing for success. Stop apologizing fo ...more

Filled with truth. It’s time for women to stop apologizing for who we are and learn who we are. I was blown away by the mindset of the author.

“Self-confidence is the secret weapon to your business success. Be unapologetically who you are. Be strong enough to like what you like. Be confident enough to say what you mean. Take up space. Be too loud. Be too much. Be you, and don’t apologize for it. You didn’t do someone wrong by being yourself. Stop believing you owe another human being an apology

This is a great book for moms with a side hustle or looking to start a business. Lindsay shares her honest opinion on how to get things done and let go of the mom guilt in the process. She’s funny and engaging, which is sometimes hard to accomplish with a business book! You’ll want to read it more than once. The first time to let her words wash over you and encourage you, and again while taking notes of how to take charge of your projects and businesses.

I tore through this book in two sittings. That says a lot for me with a business book. Do I read business books sometimes? Yes, but only because I know I should. Generally, I don’t find them super enthralling and entertaining despite having great information. I’m more of a fantasy reader who just wants to be entertained. This book surprised me, even though I know it shouldn’t have - I did love the info in LTM’s “Getting Noticed”. Lindsey is thoroughly entertaining and relatable and cuts through ...more

Beyond the fact this book gives you real, practical, essential advice, it also has a heart. You can feel the love that went into this book. As someone who RARELY finishes any book that isn't entertaining fiction, I found myself pouring through it, taking notes, highlighting and doing REAL work. Work that will help and is currently helping me grow myself and my business. This book spoke to me on multiple levels, and I will recommend it to anyone (not just women, not just moms) that has the drive ...more

There are many aspects that I could apply immediately to my business. Lindsay lays out a clear strategy with steps that anyone can follow. I love how Lindsay share of her real life ways she used to build social media (The Bossup! podcasts are great too).

I really enjoyed this book on business management from Lindsay Teague Moreno. I was not familiar with her businesses or other book, but I am glad I took a chance and read "Boss Up!" I work in the non profit sector and there was a lot of advice that I ended up highlighting for use in the way I handle projects, etc at work. I also found myself highlighting sections for my own personal use.

Moreno has a friendly, honest and funny way of speaking to her audience. While I am not a "mompreneur " ( as T

I've been a stay at home mom for 17 years now. There have been several instances over the years where I have wanted to turn my interests and passions into a business. I haven't worked up the courage yet. This book was wholly inspirational. At times funny, this gives a realistic look into what it takes. It made me want to take my business degree and finally do something with it. Highly recommend this one!

Well, this is just as amazing as I thought it would be. I'm fortunate to be reading an advance copy from Netgalley, and I have had so many truth bombs dropped on me!
I can't wait to get my hands on a paper copy so I can get busy with my highlighter and note-taking! Just the visual reading is still beneficial - but this is going to be valuable as a workbook.

For anyone thinking this book might not be for them: IT IS. LTM identifies her target market yet writes for everyone. I am definitely NOT her

I like a book that gives it to me straight, one that doesn’t make me feel like I have to sit in a circle and hum, searching for my inner woman, before I can focus on taking real steps towards succeeding in business.

It’s evident that the author’s approach to entrepreneurialship is based on her actual experiences. It’s not a rehash of tips she’s picked up and combined to call her own as I’ve seen in other books. She shares the details of her wins and her losses, the struggles she faced, the lesson

I’ve had the opportunity to pre-read and review this incredible book , “Boss Up,” by the wonderful Lindsey Teague Moreno, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I’m not an affiliate and I don’t get paid to share about this. Lindsay is an amazing virtual business mentor for me, and she’s built quite an empire, starting and raising up multiple successful businesses in a short period of time so she’s certainly earned the right to speak into this important topic for women.

I was excited to be chosen for an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I just finished this book on Friday, 6 days after gaining early access. For a business book especially, this one is a page turner. She keeps you thinking, laughing, and crying from start to finish.

I am forever grateful to LTM for writing this and sharing her heart with the world!! I do not have kids so I’m not a mama...at first, I wondered if I could really get anything out of this since I’m not a mama.

When I began reading and pouring over every word, I realized how I could apply this. See, I live with chronic illness and over the past 5 years, my life has drastically changed. I went from being supe

I was honored to read an advanced copy of "Boss Up!" and it has blessed my life. This book is EVERYTHING. It's changing the way I see myself and do business. GAME CHANGER, FOR REAL!!!

The Boss Up book rewrites the rules to the entrepreneurial game. I’ve read other biz books that can be boring or too educational in tone, or downright overwhelming. Many times they just don’t lead me to take action.

This book is entirely different. The author explains how to build something that’s sustainably real;

Thanks to the recommendation of a friend, I was able to be a part of the launch team for this book, and receive an advanced reader copy from the publisher through NetGalley. This review is based directly on my own personal opinion of my reading.

Being a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of three, I am not really part of Lindsey's momtrepreneur audience. However, for the past three years I have half-heartedly worked an MLM business (and I use the term very loosely!) and have learned so much from Lindsey along the way. Turning 70 this past year, I began to feel the business path was not for me. In Chapter 2 of Boss Up! Lindsey shared about her mother's work ethic and her early death at 53. Her mother had always had dreams of ...more

Boss Up! This Ain't Your Mama's Business Book by Lindsay Teague Moreno
So honored to have access to the galleys of Boss Up!, Lindsay Teague Moreno's second book. I love it even more than the first, Getting Noticed. Primarily geared toward momtrepeneurs and women building their business, it is has something for everyone.

Not building a business, that's okay. Lindsay's honest, straight-forward advice and tips are useful for any work environment and life in general. She gets real about her own life and journey, both the ups and downs, successes and failures, and pr

Have a dream? Want to start a business or just build on what you have? Feel nervous, unsure and insecure? What you need is a little direction mixed with some tough love and that is just what Lindsay Teague Moreno does in her newest business book "Boss Up!"
Boss Up! is a little like sitting down with a good friend and asking her to "give it to you straight"...and she does. And then some. Lindsay lays it all out there about where she came from and where she is going- from her passion, ambitions, d

Lindsay has an incredible capacity to lower her walls and let you into her most intimate moments as if you are living them yourself. Sprinkling her inner monologue throughout the chapters gave this entire book a unique and enjoyable vibe. We all have these little thoughts, it’s enticing to get a glimpse of Lindsay’s. Experiencing the path she had to navigate because of hard circumstances bolstered my understanding of her drive to succeed on a deeper level. I appreciate people’s motives and actio ...more

BossUp! is a business book that asks the hard questions of entrepeneurship and let's the reader decide the path they will take in their business. If you are looking for a step-by-step how-to business management book that will give a cookie-cutter method to residual income, this is not the book for you. Too many people are looking to be told what to do instead of figuring out how they will innovate for themselves and make their product or service stand apart from their competition.
