Beginning with Linda Hollander's own "bags to riches" story, this book is engaging and inspiring.

WOW! You can't miss when taking the advice of Linda Hollander in her book, Bags to Riches. Linda doesn't skip a beat in the orchestration of starting and growing your business. She explains step-by-step everything you need to do and consider for your business to be a success.
"This is doable!" "If it's doable, then why not dream bigger dreams." "This could be fun and profitable..." are the likely thoughts you would walk away with from reading her book.You will be inspired by her own life story: rags...to bags...to riches!
Linda writes as if you're sitting in front of her and having a girl talk, and all the while she provides no nonsense business principles that work. Thank you, Linda, for making this an easy, enjoyable read.
This is a great resource book not only for those wanting to start a business, but also for the seasoned professional. I know that most of us already in business can get into a rut and forget about certain aspects of business. Because she covers all bases, each of her Success Secrets also serve as a gentle nudge to reassess areas that may have been neglected. I would highly recommend embarking on and improving your business with help from this Bag Lady!

Here's a woman who wouldn't allow herself to
continue getting "beat up by the system."
She tried being a "good little girl." Went to school
got a "good job"... etc, but she soon learned
that she could advance ONLY so far in the business world.
Rather than having her hopes and dreams crushed...
rather than just accepting things as they were...
rather than quietly submitting to the system,
Linda Hollander created her own system.
Linda resisted taking what many women would consider the
easy road. She didn't fight the system... she instead
created a complimentary one by starting her own business.
It became highly successful!
In BAGS TO RICHES, Hollander shares her inspirational story.
From working paycheck-to-paycheck, (being broker than broke) to
succeeding in a business of her own design, Linda provides INFORMATION
and INSPIRATION to all would be entreprenuers.

Great reading for women and men alike.

This is one of the rare books that after reading you come away energized with THINGS TO DO instead of just lofty ideas or more things to think about. If you're already in business or just "thinking" about starting, read what Linda Hollander has to impart with you. This information is priceless!!! I will be re-reading as it's a true map to the treasure that's simply awaiting me to discover by doing.

Bags to Riches is written by a woman to help and inspire other women entrepreneurs to realize their dream of starting and growing their own business. This book is full of factual and practical advise that is easy to read as well as being inspirational at the same time. Ms. Hollander certainly helps to encourage other women to get out and pursue their true potential.
This book is based on Ms. Hollander's personal experience in building her own business (along with her partner) from scratch including all the mistakes and pitfalls along the way -to the successful enterprise that it is today. This book is highly motivational and leaves you feeling If she did it, so can I!
Purchasing this book was one of the best investments in myself that I have made recently. It is such a small price to pay for giving me that extra push to go out, get started, and make a successful future for myself.
Thanks Linda for inspiring me to follow in your footsteps.

While Bags to Riches is targeted to women, men will find benefit in its pages as well.

On a nuts-and-bolts level Linda's book is one of the most practical books I've read. Each of the 18 chapters contain action steps that are approachable and allow a budding entrepreneur to get started...creating forward momentum.

On a concept level I found myself having greater insight into the mindset of the women whom I do business with. Throughout the book Linda has Success Secrets which highlight the natural beneficial traits of women in business. For a man it's like having access into a "women only" chat room. It is said that men and women are different, but once you're conscious of those differences a synergy occurs. This book will help any man recognize and understand those differences.

Thank you Linda for a great contribution!

This is the first book that really speaks to me as a woman entrepreneur. I started my business 2 years ago and I'm totally inspired by Bags to Riches to take it to the next level. Now I know that I can make as much money as my ambition dictates.
Linda Hollander's 7 success secrets and the inspirational stories of the winning women in the book are awesome. But it's not just vague motivational talk. The Wealthy Bag Lady gives you plenty of real-life strategies in this book about nurture selling, Octopus Marketing, success teams, life balance, packaging your image, and creating lifetime customers.
Bags to Riches is also fun and humorous. It doesn't even feel like learning. It's more like getting advice from your best friend.
