I am so excited to announce that my book THRIVE: Turning Uncertainty To Competitive Advantage has just won the GOLD for the The Nonfiction Authors Association Awards. This is a huge honor on a labor of love that took more than two years to research and write!

Some of the reviews include: What makes this book especially refreshing is that author Meridith Elliott Powell–a well-known business expert enjoying a successful career–doesn’t promise readers that they’ll make a six or seven figure income by following a few seemingly easy steps. Powell transparently shares that she too has been hit hard by the pandemic. But her response to her own setbacks and challenges was to create a guide of how business owners can navigate uncertain times and keep afloat, whether a multi-national company, a mom and pop store, or even a freelancer. Using examples of real companies throughout its pages, Powell shares the genius, the perils, and the pitfalls, providing a summary of practical tools and resources any reader can implement to not only survive but also thrive through the uncertainty they may be experiencing currently and in the future. An excellent read!
