Anything Is Possible!

What You Can Learn From A Little Country Girl Who Went From A Two-Room School to Building An Award Winning “Village” in Just Five Weeks and Five Days

Brian Tracy of Brian Tracy International called this book “….extraordinary….” and wrote the review for the front cover. Picture this: You decide to build a tourist attraction in your poor rural area with its 20% unemployment rate. You buy 67 acres of wilderness with no infrastructure–no road, no well, no septic system, no electricity, etc.

You complete the infrastructure, build 8 shops and a restaurant, hire and train 60 employees as cashiers, find 200 quality artists to supply crafts for sale, display the crafts in the shops, and open for business. Now picture doing all this in FIVE WEEKS AND FIVE DAYS from the day you break ground! That’s exactly what Kraft and 11 other women did. Would you like to know how they accomplished this impossible feat? How to apply those principles to getting things done just as fast in your own life? In her book, Kraft tells how she started from scratch in the business world with no training and created numerous businesses that defied the odds.

With her personal stories and her unique “Seven Keys to Success,” Kraft challenges people to see their world differently, with practical tips that can easily and quickly change lives and ways of working. Kraft is that rare entrepreneur who can lead people in any profession or walk of life to look at their surroundings with fresh eyes. She has proven many times that just because something is “improbable” doesn’t make it “impossible!”

Letting Go of Mommy Guilt
Minnesota’s Woman Business Owner of the Year Shares Her Secrets on How You Can Raise Good Kids Even If You’re Super Busy!


GUILT! Society dumps a lot of that on moms. We feel guilty if we work outside of the home. We feel guilty if we’re stay-at- home moms. We feel guilty if our house isn’t immaculate. We feel guilty because the furniture isn’t dusted. We feel guilty because we’re not on the PTA board. We feel guilty if we serve frozen pizza for supper. We feel guilty when we just want five minutes to ourselves.

And the nagging question that’s with us every day is “Am I a good mom?” We contrast our lives with the perfect moms we see on television and in magazines, the moms with the beds made, a nutritious dinner on the table, the laundry done, working a full-time job and still managing to take her tae kwon do class. This thought-provoking and humorous book, written by the Minnesota Woman Business Owner of the year who raised two great children as a single mom while being an entrepreneur starting numerous business, demolishes all those guilt thoughts about not being that perfect mom!


Kraft shares her secrets of how you can raise good kids even if you’re super busy, with her “Seven Keys” to sensible parenting in an inspiring, easy-to-read and practical book. “This is a delightful parenting book by one of the busiest women I’ve ever met! She started businesses, raised her kids as a single mom, and still had fun with her hobbies. Lorelei’s methods of raising her kids are very straight-forward and simple. There’s none of the psycho-babble you often find in modern books on parenting, just straight talk about deciding what’s important to your family and what’s not–without feeling guilty.” Ilse Armstrong – CEO, Candle Enterprises, Inc.
