Behind the Scenes Look at Greatness
Jennifer Dunneon September 10, 2017

I'd heard of Mark Yarnell, but always as the "guy who wrote the book on network marketing". This fascinating book tells the other side of the story. Anyone who has been in marketing (network, online, or traditional) for any length of time knows the various platitudes that are exhorted as ways to connect with potential customers and make sales. But what does it mean to really LIVE those values? More importantly, what does it mean to be a member of the household having to live with someone who is living those values? Those were the elements of the book that elevated it to a five-star experience for me.
And, of course, there's actual meat here, as well. The seven core decisions have the hallmarks of true wisdom. They are incredibly simple, and not at all easy. After only a few days, I haven't reached the point of being able to decide YES to all of them every day, but I'm certainly deciding to CONSIDER them each day, which is already a great improvement. After all, we cannot change what we do not recognize.
Thank you, Amy Yarnell Carter for writing this book, and giving us a glimpse, not only of your father's legacy, but of his humanity.

A Legacy of Extraordinary Living for Everyone
Lauren Brookeon September 10, 2017

This book is such an inspiring tribute to Amy's dad, Mark Yarnell. We all should be so fortunate to have parents who instill in us such positive core beliefs, but even if you didn't, this book will help you reshape your mindset for the better. Amy's energy and zest for life really shines through in her writing. Read it and apply what you learn, you won't be disappointed!

For anyone who needs a jumpstart on life!
ByJack's mom on September 10, 2017

The energy in this book just jumps off of the pages! The advice is no nonsense but gives you that loving nudge to take responsibility for your life and get going! The author also covers sensitive topics like illness and grief to give you inspiration and permission to not be consumed by either. A great, easy, and meaningful read!

At every moment of every day, we have a choice about the decisions we make. It's the combination of these choices small and large that comprise the totality of our life.

ByTina Perrmannon September 3, 2017

Extraordinary read by Amy Yarnell Carter that I highly recommend! Greatness surely runs in the Yarnell DNA. After having the privilege and honor of working closely with Mark Yarnell the last 14 months of his life, I feel Amy literally bottled up and channeled his recipe for living your best life. Well written with practical tools, compassion, and the healing Yarnell humor. Don't walk, but run to devour this life transforming read.

Living life to the fullest
Heather Bierly on September 2, 2017

Finally a book that encourages us to take responsibility for our lives, take action, and live it to the fullest. Reading this book gave me so many insights into my life especially the parts I was avoiding and keeping small. It is a fast read, well written, and a useful resource. Easy to go back and pull up reminders. Excellent quotations that really hit home.

A Treasured Look Back at Incredible Wisdom!
Mary Beth Gasseron September 1, 2017

What an incredible treat this read was for me. I couldn't put it down. Working with Mark personally, this book brought back the fondest memories for me. And, a few belly laughs as well. Such wisdom that Amy captured as she experienced life with Mark Yarnell. I lived vicariously through her stories often transporting me to that place of love and laughter. The content was well placed throughout the book and when I finished, I felt so complete. A book I will read again and again. If you are doing life, this book is a must for your library!

Read this if you want to be inspired.
RKon September 1, 2017

Amy Yarnell Carter has written a guidebook for those of us looking to be successful AND happy in our lives. Her understanding and experience of tremendous loss and personal growth is an inspiration to those of us looking for that same outlook. We often struggle focusing on what we don’t have and compare that to what we truly want. Ms. Yarnell teaches us that we can really have what we want; we just have to change the way we think. This absolute realization that we are in charge of our lives and our decisions is powerful stuff and when you sit and think about it, we all realize it’s so TRUE. Our lives. Our responsibility. Brilliant!!!

Much more than "self help"
David Don August 31, 2017

I wish I had read this 2 decades ago. I wouldn't have wasted so much time in unproductive directions and decisions, and I certainly would have smiled more. I had the opportunity to hear Mark Yarnell speak, and I remember him being very engaging. And that's in front of a bunch of 18 year olds that wanted nothing more than to get their diploma and be done with high school. I highly recommend picking this up and reading it. Get several so you can have one at work, one at home, one for traveling, and refer back to it often. Calling this book simply "self help" is like saying toilet paper is useful.

Straightforward, beautiful and poignant.
Joy August 31, 2017

This is the life advice we all need. Carter gets right to the heart of how we can all improve our lives and positively effect the lives of the people around us.

Wonderful, inspirational read!
virginia gray August 31, 2017

Prepare to change for the BETTER, I Have!
Alexis on August 31, 2017

I don't usually read books but this book has already changed my perception on life. This book is going to be a life saver to so many people that are struggling with perceptions in life and just simply needed someone to spell it out so that it is relatable and easier to make a change for the better. I already have a list of people that will benefit greatly from the information within TY7! Thank you so much for helping me see ME!

Motivating read
Lisa Cragar, MS, LPC

August 30, 2017

The Yarnell 7 is a great tribute to Amy's father, Mark Yarnell, but additionally TY7 is an excellent guide for simple, realistic strategies for upgrading your ordinary life to a more conscious, decision focused, "extraordinary" life. Amy gives 7 practical, yet powerful, decisions, or choices, to live life at the highest level. TY7 is an easy read filled with sound decision models. Amy is motivating and filled with enthusiasm in her writing. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

A great positive read!

Cary G. Waggoner, CPA and Staci D. Waggoner, CPA  August 30, 2017

YES! Amy Yarnell Carter knocked it out of the ballpark with TY7! It is an awesome book, a must-read for everyone from 9 to 90 years young! A very well-written, thought out book with the perfect amount of anecdotes sprinkled among the gems of knowledge. This is a book you won't put down!

by Christine P.
