What are people saying about ‘Why Put a Bow Tie on a Llama?

When you write a book, you test out early drafts with your target audience – business owners, people who want to change their life and entrepreneurs. This is what people are already saying about the book…

A fascinating roller-coaster ride of a book detailing the ups and downs of setting up a wedding events business in rural Lancashire. From the painful process of dealing with red tape and bureaucracy, through to handling a unique building programme, then marketing, staffing and sculpting the business – this book covers it all in an easy to understand, practical and very real way.  As a Glamping Site owner also in the North West, I could really relate to this book in a way you can’t with most. It was full of real-world examples of how hard business can be at times and a very honest insight for anyone looking to diversify their farm. There’s very little information out there about this and thank you to Celia for taking the time to share her vast experience. I’m sure that reading the book will give you some real light bulb moments and plenty of takeaways for you to implement in your own business. This roller-coaster ride is a must read for anyone looking to set up any type of leisure business, or those already in it.
