Some remodeling business owners are masterful on the “how” but very few on the “why.” Allison brings color to an otherwise very black and white remodeling world. Not just prescriptive but poetic, reading her prose will not only make you think but will warm your heart.

Allison Iantosca’s essays offer a model of leadership that doesn’t reflect a “values vs. profits” tradeoff. She knows that is an artificial choice and one that actually compromises both. Instead, the little jewels Allison creates remind us that leading is a holistic activity, one that requires our whole selves. Being smart is good. Leading also with heart, in business and in life, makes for fewer tough decisions, more satisfied clients, and, even, higher profits.
