Tamara Nall | President and CEO at the Leading Niche
"A profoundly moving and down-to-earth collection of human trials, tribulations and steadfast determination in the face of adversity! I was hooked from the very first chapter!"
Shawn Johal | Business Growth Coach and author of The Happy Leader
"What happens when you take successful, inspiring and thoughtful leaders from all over the world and ask them to collaborate on one book? QUITLESS happens. An anthology like none I've read before, the sheer authenticity and no-holds-barred approach to storytelling had me hooked immediately. Regardless of where you may be in your professional journey, this book is a must read!"
Rick Orford | Co-Founder and Executive Producer at Travel Addicts Life, and bestselling author of The Financially Independent Millennial
"Somewhere between banging your head against a wall and refusing to see anything but the finish line of the race you began ages ago, lies the subtle art of persistence. Woven across a myriad of sometimes-shocking, sometimes-outrageous stories, QUITLESS is the triumph of the human spirit over any and all obstacles that would stop you from achieving that which you are meant to do."
Sanjay Jaybhay | Bestselling author of Invest and Grow Rich
"Reading QUITLESS was like adopting the drill instructor most of us could benefit from having in our lives - it fired me up and made me remember there's important work to be done, right now, today! No one's going to make your dream come true for you - you've got to have persistence!"
Kristin Cripps | Real Estate Broker and Empowerment Expert, bestselling author of ShePreneur and InvestPreneur
"What amazed me the most about QUITLESS was the incredible diversity of each author presented in the book. All came from different walks of life, different educational backgrounds and different economic circumstances. And yet, regardless of their inherent differences, each tells a powerful narrative about the value of looking adversity in the face and refusing to back down. If this book doesn't motivate you to get out there and get after it, I'm not sure what will."
Tom Fedro | President and CEO, Paragon Software Group Corporation, bestselling author of Next Level Selling
"The idea of "success" has become so ubiquitous in our everyday vernacular, it can sometimes be hard to remember what the word actually stands for. QUITLESS was the crash course in redefining that ideal. A brilliant and uplifting journey through the trials and tribulations of what it means to go after all the things you've ever dreamed of doing."
Sid Mohasseb | Transformational and Motivational Speaker, and bestselling author of You Are Not Them!: The Authentic Entrepreneur's Way
"If you don't believe in destiny, this book will, at the very least, make you believe in persistence! Rather than the tired, proverbial wisdom, "keep your head down and do what needs to be done", QUITLESS approaches the topic in a wholly unique and invigorating way. By presenting such a diverse range of successful individuals from all different backgrounds and walks of life, you're encouraged to remember that all of your power comes from nowhere else but within!"
Mike Putman | Founder, Custom Travel Solutions
"QUITLESS was everything you hope for out of an anthology and more! An amalgamation of successful individuals from all walks of life sharing their highs, their lows and most importantly their truths. It was gratifying to know that just because my journey doesn't resemble the people around me, that does not in any way negate its importance or its potential."
Orad Elkayam | CEO, MoGi Group and President, TransPerfect
"QUITLESS is a beautifully woven tapestry of human experience in which each author brings to the table the unique wisdom, anecdotes and life lessons that have propelled them out of mediocrity and into the fullness of their own actualized potential. Easily one of the most inspiring books I've read this year."
Michael Flory | CEO, Director, and Board Member, MRFH, LLC
"Too often we are all only presented with the highlight reel of flashy CEO's and mogul entrepreneurs. We see the success in all of its glorious trappings, but not the truth of what was sacrificed to get there. In QUITLESS, we are given a backstage pass to the other half of the narrative, the real half. Each author of the anthology bravely puts his/her story on the line, and shows us that to be truly successful it takes a lot more than just a fancy business card - you have to learn how to pick yourself back up, likely more than once!"
Trissa Tismal-Capili | Executive Coach and Speaker, Boss Transformed
"I delighted in reading such fascinating stories of classroom teachers, PhDs, writers, Air Force pilots, and entrepreneurs. Many of the stories in this anthology offer profound take-home value and great insight. Be it that I recognised myself for better or worse in its pages, or found inspiration to try what the authors shared. QUITLESS is a great collection! I was deeply moved by the honesty and integrity of each of the authors willing to share their stories in something as permanent as print. A strong and valuable reminder of the critical importance in remaining receptive to all that life has to offer - the good, the bad and the ugly (for those who remember Sergio Leone's famous movie)."
Andreas Schweitzer | Managing Director, Arjan Capital Ltd

In this excellent compendium, Alinka is joined by thirty-three other authors whose input is to empower the reader to incorporate persistence to succeed in both business and life. In her introductory comments she states, ‘Eleven letters. What if I told you that’s really all it takes to change the world? What if, instead of tripping ourselves to learn from the mouths of the executive suite, real estate moguls, and venture capitalists, we just opened an Oxford dictionary? It’s right there in front of our noses. PERSISTENCE. It’s as simple as that….Make no mistake about it, failure is coming. You will trip and stumble, scrape your knee, and second-guess just how bad you want this crazy, ludicrous, wonderful idea. But you have in your arsenal, everything you need to continue forward….So go out there, persist, and make it happen. You just might change the world.’
With that energetic challenge, Alinka presents one of the most entertaining, informative, and inspirational selections of statements from people in all walks of life who underline the importance of Persistence as the navigator and secret to success in both life and in every imaginable ‘business’ situation. Some authors offer lists, such as Julien Barber’s Five Steps to ultimate persistence – ‘Take responsibility for yourself, Figure out where you “fudged up”, Remember: life isn’t fair, Don’t seat it, Ask yourself: why, why, why?’ And while other authors offer such directions, the primary message in each contribution is simply to focus on Persistence when the future blurs and by being persistent we become ‘quitless’
Once again Alinka demonstrates why she herself has been so successful as well as shaping entrepreneurs – by constantly stimulating thought and fresh ideas to those who seek success! This is a very inspiring book, one that offers hope and the means to secure a happy life. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, March 21
I think we all do this from time to time, look at someone else that seems to be achieving more, living life to its fullest and wonder how they do it all. This book will help answer those questions. Read the experiences first hand and you will see anything is possible if you set your vision, focus and commit.
I highly recommend Quitless for anyone looking to persist toward their dreams and know that they are not alone.
