Women are rock stars in business! For so long, we've heard what we 'are not' versus men. Our time has come. Women are being recognized as a force in business. We make businesses stronger and we are starting our own successful businesses in droves. SKIRT and the messages in the book SKIRTworking: How to Network Using SKIRT, helps us recognize how to leverage our strengths as individuals and as a community. In starting my own business, tapping into a community of great women proved to be an invaluable ingredient in my team s successful creation of a strong business that nurtures people and the planet. --Sheryl O'Loughlin, CEO/CO Founder, Nest Naturals and Former CEO, Clifbar and Company
The good ol girl network is alive and well! The authors celebrate the fact that women ARE different than men and can build powerful businesses based on those differences. Women are creative, nurturing, and collaborative beings - these innate qualities can and must be leveraged to grow our businesses and to help other women do the same. ----Sandra Sellani, Author of What's Your BQ?(Brand Quotient) and Brand Consultant
This is a great way for all professional women to put their female strengths to work and build a substantial book of business! SKIRTworking will teach you how to use talents and skills you already possess to build your business in the most cost-effective manner. You'll not only enjoy using the SKIRTworking system, it will give you a financial leg-up on your competition. ----Elizabeth Gordon, President of Flourishing Business, author of The Chic Entrepreneur: Put Your Business in Higher Heels
