Format: Paperback
After my fiancée Rebeca Alcantara read Divas Doing Business she quit her job and launched a new company. Monique Hayward transformed her life overnight. "She gave me the courage to take risks and get this done," said Rebeca. "I will never be the same." After observing the impact "Divas" had on my girlfriend I read the book cover to cover over two days. Monique is an exhaustive researcher. She interviewed dozens of women who created new companies, unveiling the secrets to their success. As an executive at Intel and an experienced entrepreneur, Monique is an architect of empowerment for women who want to realize their full potential. In time, Divas Doing Business will enter the pantheon of classic business literature alongside authors like Gail Evans, Suze Orman, Steven Covey, John Naisbitt, and Jack Welch.

I just returned from a business trip and I read your entire book on the flight to Chicago on Sunday. It is a home run! I loved it!

I am in the process of starting a consulting firm while I keep my day job. I found myself looking to you as a role model after your presentation at our Leadership Beaverton class. But your book delivered even more and brought it all together. The stories were inspiring. But even more, they illustrate what it really takes to keep going, keep reinventing yourself and the business and ultimately use both success and failure to learn, grow and thrive. Thank you!

This book is a must read for any woman who is considering starting her own business.
I wish I had this book as a guide when I started my own business 16 years ago, it would have saved a lot of angst!

Just finished reading Divas Doing Business, it's loaded with practical advice about planning, running and ending a small business. Like other business books, it has its share of interviews with successful entrepreneurial women, but what really makes this book unique is the way Ms. Hayward refers back to her own business, Dessert Noir Café and Bar. She openly, and quite courageously, shares not only her successes, but her failures, and the lessons learned from them, which I find to be both inspirational and educational. Between the content, and refreshing tone, by the end of the book, you feel like you were on the journey with her, and have benefited from the all the hard work, risk, and joy she put into the experience. What a gift! I highly recommend this book for anyone thinking about opening a business.

Format: Paperback
This is the first business book I've read that honestly talks about the positive and negative sides of starting your own business. It is a refreshing read that isn't loaded with jargon. Anyone who is wondering about starting something of their own or who is already in business for themselves will get solid information. I've been a fan of the book and of Monique since I first read her blog. After that I asked her to be a guest on my radio show, "Women Entrepreneurs - The Secrets of Success" because I wanted her to share her insights with my listeners. I recommend this book all the time and I'm hoping there will be a "part two" coming up at some point in the future.
