Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

This accessible, educational guide encourages smart skills for smart girls and may be invaluable for entrepreneurs. The compact volume begins with an introductory letter from Pleasant T. Rowland, an entrepreneur who recently sold Pleasant Company for hundreds of millions of dollars to Mattel. A clear, concisely organized format follows, offering advice, tips, and all the basics to starting a business. The chapters are divided into realistic skills, including moneymakers for pet lovers, cooks, babysitters, computer whizzes, and crafters, then goes on to give solid business basics: tips on how to stretch a dollar, setting goals, keeping good records, and more. The true stories that appear at the beginning of each chapter have the most appeal, featuring a real-life young entrepreneur and the nitty-gritty behind her business: why she started, how much she made, and secrets and advice for success. Readers are sure to love the special ``tools'' included, too - business cards, forms, price tags, and signs. The reader-friendly format, appealing illustrations, and substantial information makes this an outstanding resource. (Nonfiction. 8-13) -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Format: Paperback
It is a fantastic book for girls with real drive or those who might need a little inspiration. The entreprenurial projects are varied and can keep a young girl and her friends occupied for the summer or throughout the year. Ingrid Roper is a creative and thoughtful writer who understands how to connect with and how to challenge young girls. Its compact size makes it easy to carry around in a purse or backpack.
