Giving Candy to Strangers by Stan Holden

I hadn’t even gotten through the first page of Stan Holden’s Giving Candy to Strangers: Tips for Creating Abundance Through Heart-Centered Sales that I received through iRead Book Tours to review and I had to put the book down – to find a highlighter and pen to take notes and document AH-HA moments!
