Publisher's Summary

For those times when hard work and persistence just aren't enough, Terri Sjodin offers an inspiring guide to getting scrappy and beating the odds.

Terri Sjodin loves scrappy people - those who beat the odds with a blend of cleverness and fighting spirit. People who see big problems and come up with big solutions. People like the clever Girl Scout who sold 117 boxes of cookies in two hours outside a medical marijuana dispensary or the entrepreneur who turned his home into an indoor jungle to sell investors on the Rainforest Café restaurant chain.

It can seem like these successes are just one-off acts of ingenuity or isolated flashes of brilliance. But today it takes more than just creativity, more than just persistence, more than just a dream to reach big goals - it takes a mind-set and a strategy.

Sjodin explains the common elements behind every successful scrappy effort. Drawing on research, interviews, and her own personal experience, she identifies the practices that will help you develop the right mind-set. She shares stories of scrappy tactics that have worked, and those that have crashed and burned, to help listeners pursue their own visions.

Whether you're a sales rep looking to close that big deal, a job seeker trying to land your dream job, or a CEO who wants to reach the next level of success, the fastest way to get what you want is to get scrappy.

Get Ready to Put Your Gloves On.

Would you consider the audio edition of Scrappy to be better than the print version?

I rely on Audio Books to get my reading accomplished. Scrappy was motivational.

What did you like best about this story?

Scrappy hit me to the core and reminded me of what I am capable of.

What does Terri L. Sjodin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

For me, reading a book is too much of a luxury not found in my busy schedule. Thanks to Terry Sjodin for reading this to me - it kept me listening to the very end.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I most appreciated the successful examples of how others got Scrappy.

Any additional comments?

Great Read for anyone.

Insightful and practical

Great insights about not taking the same path as everyone else, thinking different, being creative, standing out. Terri's use of specific examples of success enlightened me to understand how to put the principles into action

Very contemporary perspectives, brilliantly performed and completely inspirational. Well done and well said! It could very easily have been titled- Think and Grow Scrappy! :-)

Simply crappy - don't waste your money

Would you try another book from Terri L. Sjodin and/or Terri L. Sjodin?

I may. I don't know. This book has been pretty bad - it hints to me that the author is all fluff. Lots of buzzwords thrown out, none actionable.

What was most disappointing about Terri L. Sjodin’s story?

As opposed to what was written on her Linkedin's page, I didn't think this was a very high content book. Its just a hotpot of random stories of people who made it by being creative - some of the stories are actually pretty lame and most are uninspiring. Author tries to upsell content along the way by saying "When my friends heard this story they were like WOW".

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Terri L. Sjodin?

I think the reason why the author casted herself is because it may be difficult for others to be as excited as her about the stories.

What character would you cut from Scrappy?

The lady who went to work in the men's department of a store to meet eligible guys? In the end she didn't meet a customer but someone who just happened to walk through the place. I mean come on, this is so terrible.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money or time listening to this.
