Thank you, Phebe Trotman, for writing this book. Reading heartfelt personal stories from so many who also went through situations where they contemplated quitting will encourage people to persevere. These are great short stories from incredibly successful women and men who offer great advice, tips, and positive affirmations for people in business, network marketing, and other personal goals and endeavors.

I have never read a book that shares defeats and triumphs in such a personal relatable way! The reader will definitely not feel alone with their struggles. This will encourage perseverance!

I absolutely look forward to the next one in the series.

The world of network marketing needs your book.  By taking the stories of super successful people in the industry and having them share some of their worst days, it makes my bad days in business seem not so bad.  And it makes me think "if they can get through THAT I can surely get through this.” The sections on resilience are great!  Lots of thought provoking questions and quotes for inspiration.  By letting us all peek behind the curtain of perceived perfection, we get to see the real struggles and stories of perseverance that we can all draw inspiration from.  I can't wait to share it with people!

- Michelle S.-T.

This powerful, heartfelt book of inspiring real-life stories, highlights the power and beauty of human connection. It reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles and that it’s what we choose to do on the tough days that will define our futures.

The reflections on resilience sections at the end of each chapter, provide tangible take aways to implement positive changes in your life. Ones that will help you take steps closer to achieving your dreams, whatever they may be.

Every chapter contains nuggets of gold, and is engaging & inspiring from the foreword to the afterword! Overall it left me feeling positive, inspired, excited and hopeful.

Thank you for writing this! It’s one I know I will find myself returning to often, and most definitely sharing with my family, friends, students and team.

What a fun read! You get a glimpse of the lives of many successful individuals and how they overcome their obstacles and realize their own potential! It never gets old! I saw my journey, my struggles and I was reminded that at this moment I'm at the right place! 

- Ivan H.

This book is a must-read and one I will continue to recommend to my coaches, clients, family, friends and community to help build their spirits and navigate some of life's sticky moments to know that we will be okay no matter what life brings our way as we never forget that we are capable of achieving our dreams even if it takes us a few months, a year or years as long as we work hard, have faith in God, remain focused, remember our why and never forget who we are and aspire to be on that journey. Never Quit on a Bad Day is my new favourite mantra because I believe with the right people around you and at any moment and time, with dedication, consistency and resilience to preserve in difficult moments, we as humans can transform our lives. 

- Efe F.

This book is a unique, sincere, and heartfelt tool that inspires us to never quit on a bad day. Phebe introduces us to individuals who share their successes and struggles to encourage us all to fight our fears. It is not an over-the-top motivational cheerleader book but rather an optimistic and realistic nudge to follow our dreams and appreciate that fear is a natural part of achieving those dreams and navigating life.

As a naturopathic doctor, I resonate with the vibe of this book because these amazing individuals always promote kindness, helping others, and expressing gratitude.

The Reflections on Resilience exercises that Phebe offers are straightforward and thought-provoking. On a personal note, I was in a place that needed a push and some reconnection with my craft, and this book provided exactly that!

Thank you for taking me on this journey, and I am excited to share this book with my community.

"Never Quit On A Bad Day" is an inspiring book to anyone in business. This book offers encouragement to any person that has had a discouraging day. How to triumph over a tough day is literally the playbook of an entrepreneur. I have heard the saying entrepreneurs jump off the cliff and build the wings on the way down. Well this book gives you the instructions on building the wings. That being said this book should be required reading for anyone in an MLM, considering to join an MLM, considering quitting an MLM and of course business people in general. Phebe's quote was on the money when she said "pray like it depends on God, work like it depends on you"! I was reading the book in my car by the water and yelled out 'YES!'. This book will be in the hands of Directors that I know in MLM's and I am going to require that my employees read it.

Thank you for writing this book! Much needed punch in the arm to a CEO really going for it this year!

We often perceive success through a very subjective lens. As Phebe has managed to convey in this fascinating book, we rarely witness the struggles many people endure on their path to success. As both a high-level athlete and a successful entrepreneur, Phebe has captured incredibly awe-inspiring stories from some of North America's greatest business minds. They not only provide insights into the success of their businesses but, more importantly, offer tips and guidance on how to persevere through challenging days.

Never Quit on a Bad Day is brilliant! The stories of determination, clarity, resilience, strength, and relationships are inspiring.

Yesterday, I woke up feeling very overwhelmed, knowing what I needed to accomplish for the day. As I was finishing up the book, there was a story or even a sentence that I needed to hear at that very moment. When things got tough during the day, I kept repeating to myself, "Don't quit, don't quit on a bad day." I made it through the day, and I will carry that same mantra forward today!

I also really enjoyed the actionable steps at the end of each chapter as they provide an opportunity for reflection and clarity. These exercises helped me get unstuck and never quit on a bad day!! I will be gifting this book to team members, colleagues, family, and friends.
