Our October 2022 Indie Business Book Club selection is Live What You Love: Notes from A Passionate Life by Bob and Melinda Blanchard. This book celebrates the fact that there is more than one path to success. And that's why you have to read it.
In this book, we will meet the authors, a married couple who embrace looking at life a bit differently, and who created their own model for how to earn a living on their own terms.
The authors have launched and owned several businesses, most of which they started from scratch with less than $10,000. They live what they love and are proud to follow their hearts to a lifestyle that is supported by businesses they truly enjoy owning.
Like most Indie Business Network members, they lead a life that doesn't fit neatly within the lines that others have drawn, but in the lines that they have drawn for themselves.
What you'll learn …
In addition to enjoying a fresh and affirming entrepreneurial perspective, here are some of the things you'll learn by reading this book with us:
- how to live an entrepreneurial life that is totally atypical, and also, totally wonderful in your own eyes
- ways to use entrepreneurship to live what you love
- the importance of embracing not only the outcome of entrepreneurship, but also, the experience of it
- … and so much more!
The reading plan progresses in our private Entrepreneur Members Facebook Group. We will share and discuss valuable takeaways in our weekly Coffee with Donna Maria meetings on Mondays at 8pm ET | 5pm PT.
The link to join Coffee with Donna Maria live will be in your Monday morning member update, and posted in the Facebook Group.

About Bob and Melinda Blanchard
While many people have big dreams of exiting a tradition job and lifestyle, Bob and Melinda Blanchard actually did it. While visiting the Caribbean with their son, they were inspired to make a big change by not only following their dreams, but turning them into a cottage industry.
Their philosophy can be boiled down to these six words: Only do the things you love. As the owners of the award-winning Blanchards Restaurant, with two locations on the tiny Caribbean island of Anguilla, they have done just that.
