Liz Robertson is in trouble. Her business is floundering and her relationship with son, Justin, is drowning. As a single mother, she is spread thin and there are things that she misses; like the fact someone is stealing money from her event planning business. Tired, frustrated, and stretched beyond her capabilities, she stumbles upon an unlikely business resource; her son's soccer coach. Ready to try anything to salvage her business and her relationship, she begins to apply those lessons she learns on the pitch. But will it be enough and in time to allow her to make a living and have a life?
At first glance this novel did not appeal to me as it lacked the paranormal elements I am so addicted to but at only 140 pages this little book is full of surprises. The Pitch is unlike your typical "how to" novel. Linda J Lord serves up some sound advice on how to succeed in business through telling a heartwarming story of how her protagonist Liz Robertson pulls herself up by her bootstraps by taking note of the advice her son's soccer coach gives to his team. If you are a current business owner or hoping to be one Linda J Lord's novel would be an excellent resource for you acquire. In addition to its target audience I will say that the advice within this novel can be applicable to more than just business owners so if you are anyone questioning the direction your life has taken I recommend that you check out this novel that is available at both Amazon and Barnes and Noble or enter the giveaway that will be outlined below and hopefully you will win yourself a copy!
