Book Description

"Five years ago, a good friend of mine hanged herself.

I had coffee with her the day before."

Thus begins Sramana Mitra's new book, Feminine Feminism.

The feminist movement has suffered major set-backs, one of the greatest being that talented women drop out of the work force in large numbers in their mid-thirties.

In this volume of Sramana Mitra's acclaimed Entrepreneur Journeys series, she presents stories of successful women entrepreneurs. She offers her analysis of how entrepreneurship may be the answer for women looking for a flexible way of balancing an ambitious career while still raising children.

Complex, emotional, intimate, candid perspectives offer a window into the struggles and triumphs of women who have chosen to actualize their talents through entrepreneurship.

An important message for 21st century women, and a great collection of female role models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entrepreneurship & the choice to remain feminine October 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Sramana Mitra, serial entrepreneur, founder of the One Million by One Million global virtual incubator, and a past writer for Forbes, shares a collection of interviews with various female entrepreneurs that have demonstrated the ability to find balance in the world of start ups and life. Mitra's weaves in her experience through her discussions and points out that the choice between having a career and a family in today's world can lead to regret and a loss of the "sense of self" for women in today's societies. Mitra demonstrates the importance of "not quitting" and perhaps becoming an entrepreneur as the antidote for an identity crisis. The book covers a variety of topics related to entrepreneurship, feminism, and the pressure behind doing it all as a female. A nice mix of women from all walks of life share their stories that may help you discover the path for your journey. Feminine Feminism is a great introduction to thinking about entrepreneurship from a woman's perspective and learning to find balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminine Feminism - Sramana Mitra October 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A review of the entrepreneurial women with interviews and suggestions as to how one not only establishes, funds and operates a company plus the connection with family life. Sramana Mitra, a globally renowned consultant, presents readers with guidance and reminds women not to "lose our sense of self" by abandoning a working life found satisfying and stimulating. The price one may pay for withdrawing from a career may be very high. Also, critical to understanding entrepreneurship is that it is not gender connected. A woman entrepreneur may operate slightly differently from a male entrepreneur yet that is due to character or experience and not gender. One need not attempt to be a clone of male entrepreneurs, is an important message proved by Ms. Mitra. This is a book that encourages by example and should be read by all women considering a professional vs family life. They can blend! Be bold and blend! Indeed Ms. Mitra dedicates the book to "the daughter I might have had". We join her as sisters, mothers and entrepreneurs to understand we have options! Her statement "I prioritized. I was willing to make certain sacrifices. In the end, I was able to have ALL that I chose to have" is a message that I'll share with many friends and colleagues. Bravo, Ms. Mitra. Your work, whether via this book or the One Million by One Million global virtual incubator you've created, is valuable to all entrepreneurs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick educational read full of practical insights November 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In full disclosure, I work with the author really closely at her 1M/1M initiative.

This book is a collection of in-depth interviews with successful women entrepreneurs.
Each interview is a detailed study on how a particular business was built and how each entrepreneur managed to balance her personal and professional priorities.

A quick educational read full of practical insights.

Also a great read for those women contemplating options like family, corporate career, entrepreneurship, being a full-time mom, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will help you think through your work - life issues November 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This thought-provoking book deals with issues that most women today confront - balancing work and family. I especially liked the inspirational stories of several mompreneur role-models and how they have dealt with their work-life issues. Is entrepreneurship the answer for you? Do you really want to quit working completely? This quick read gives you several perspectives to help you to decide.
