Drive: 9 Lessons to Win in Business and in Life by Kelley Earnhardt Miller ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I don't read a lot of self-help books and definitely don't read how to succeed in business since I'm retired and it doesn't apply to me. However, when I saw that this book was written by Dale Earnhardt's daughter and because I live in Nascar country, I decided to give it a read.

I thought that the beginning of the book was very interesting - Kelly talked about growing up with a famous but distant father, problems with her stepmother, and the closeness she had with her brother Dale, Jr.  She also talked about the early mistakes she made in her career and how she changed to become a successful as the vice-president of JR Motorsports. When she got into the success in the business part of the book, it wasn't applicable to me but I wish that I'd have had this kind of advice when I was starting in my career.  She divides the book up into the following chapters: and gives examples about how each of these made her more successful in business:

Be Authentic and Approachable
Manage Your Emotions
Succeed Using Strengths
Let Go to Move Forward
Customize Your Communication
Know How to Make Decisions
Aim for the Win-Win
Show Kindness
Live a Balanced Life
Become a stronger person and a more effective leader by facing the truth about your own life in a healthy way and then drive to the win! 

This is a great book for women to read as they start their careers and work towards success.
