“Full Disclosure: I’ve read the first 20 pages of a lot of supposedly similar books and given up on them. Time, after all, is one of the most valuable assets to an entrepreneur, and I won’t have mine wasted. But with The Entrepreneur’s Garden I was learning and thinking on every page, and genuinely got excited about business again by reading this book; it doesn’t get much better than that. Divya Parekh has “A GIFT” for getting right to the heart of an issue, in a no-nonsense way, which of course every entrepreneur needs.
The Entrepreneur’s Garden is a fun, informative read from someone who knows what she’s talking about. She includes interesting and memorable stories to illustrate her points. She also provides enough examples and details that you feel that you have a chance of actually implementing what she suggests without belaboring it or overgeneralizing to the point of uselessness.
The Entrepreneur’s Garden is a “KILLER CRASH COURSE” in building a start-up business and becoming better in and existing business. When you read Divya’s book you will no doubt take away “WHEELBARROWS OF NUGGETS” short, readable, and an essential “PUMP YOU UP” for those thinking of starting a business or a venture or a project or whatever. As my mentor tells my all the time “There is no change, without a change in routine.” Don’t make an excuse get your copy today!!
Author, Inspirational teacher, motivational speaker and life coach
“Let go of your fear and begin the journey towards manifesting your passion and purpose. It may sound difficult at first but letting go of fear taste a lot better once you have felt the freedom courage has given you. Her journey, story and book are an inspiration she captures the honest journey that is being an entrepreneur.
The motivation that is within this book shines from the very beginning, the moment that Dee tells Sally, “Time is the most valuable currency of life. Once lost, it is gone forever. Lost time can translate into lost opportunities, missed connections, and lost destiny. Losing times means losing life because you have not lived the way you want to live.” I recommend it if you want to learn about money, building a team, managing time, and so much more!!.” – Andy J. Salgado Actor/ Speaker/ Being/ Entrepreneur/ Motivating/ Artistic/ Creative
“I first purchased it via the Kindle, but then I realized that I wanted to do the exercise in the book so I ordered a hardcopy. I love the way the book is written and I know doing the exercises will help me with my business. “ Luz Canino-Baker International Executive Coach and Leadership Trainer
“I loved our conversation today you are a blessing, inspiration, and gave me the goosebumps. You moved me so much that I want to run to church, praise God, and shout your name to the heavens. You brought my cheeks to blushing and an entire new level of being humble and appreciation for women and our message. Thank you.“

“I was blessed to have Divya Parekh on my Facebook Live show. Her purpose and passion is contagious. The information Divya shared with our audience is so vital for life’s successes and can save a lot of pain and frustration. I would encourage anyone looking for the secret of life to connect with Divya. I promise, you will not regret it.“ Mark Weisenburger
“Traditionally, people write a book then they follow it up with the program or product they want to offer. I did it the opposite way. I created an assessment that measures Influence Potential, the Keller Influence Indicator® (KII®), and an entire certification program for coaches (41 CCEs with ICF) and for use in organizations. Over the last few years, people were telling me I needed to write the book. My usual response was, “I have no time.” Then I realized that that was my way of putting it off, perhaps because I thought it wouldn’t be good enough or people wouldn’t really care.
After talking with Divya, she helped me realize that I could have a greater reach with much less effort in getting my message out on a global stage. Divya helped me focus, brainstorm my topic, and create a structure that helped me complete my book in less than 90 days. Divya’s methods and unique way of knowing my audience and what they wanted was critical to keeping me on task with my content addressing the needs of my audience, i.e., what would make them read the book (BTW – this translates into sales). This book became a major platform in introducing influence to the world, the Keller Influence Indicator® (KII®) assessment, and our influence programs to potential clients who turned into paying clients.
After I read Divya’s book, The Entrepreneur’s Garden (which is a must read) and writing the foreword for it, I could see that she really did have a solid grasp on how to help me get started on my book, but, more importantly, help me finish it. Anyone can start a book, but not everyone can finish it. Divya has a special talent that energized and inspired me to see what was possible and enjoy the writing process despite setbacks and challenges. Divya is a heart-centered person and comes from a place of authenticity and giving.
One thing I really admired about Divya’s working method was her straightforward honesty. When I got off track, forgot my audience, or didn’t position my message as well as I could have, she wasn’t afraid to step in and challenge me. Her process pushed me to make the good parts of my book great. Divya could easily see what I couldn’t. She made me a better writer.
Divya didn’t let the grass grow under my feet. She kept me moving always reaching for the best in my writing and the entire book process. Since I’ve known and worked with Divya I have a great book, a solid influence message in the world, and a beautiful friendship.“
