Top customer reviews
That number of business owned by women is encouraging because it has been steadily growing. But the revenue number is extremely disappointing. Women are simply not growing their businesses.
Stephanie Breedlove, author of All In – How Women Entrepreneurs Can Think Bigger, Build Sustainable Businesses and Change the World, is on a mission to help women improve the revenue number.
Ms. Breedlove primarily wrote this book as an inspiration and guide for women who want to grow their business and make an impact. There are two main themes to the book. First, she is a cheerleader – I’ve done it and you can too. Next there is mentor, here is how I and eight other women have achieved outstanding success as business owners.
The mentoring and cheerleading are interwoven throughout the book. Ms. Breedlove takes the reader behind the scenes of her business and life. It is not possible to totally separate an entrepreneur’s life from their business – they are so intertwined. Ms. Breedlove goes into great detail about the struggles, conflicts and trade-offs necessary to maintain a healthy, successful marriage, raise two boys and grow a business to a leader in the industry.
The steps are simple, but far from easy. That is why being the role model for future women entrepreneurs is so important. Her goal is to share her story and the steps she took and the principles that guided her so that other women can achieve the level of success that is possible.
While the book is primarily written for women, the lessons are solid and also apply to men and their businesses. There is a lot most men could learn from Ms. Breedlove about managing and growing a business.
While the 18 business strategies are scattered throughout the book, they are also presented in summary format at the end of the book.
The writing is conversational in style, a quick and easy read. She gives plenty of specific examples and draws on the experiences of eight other women entrepreneurs to fill out the lessons.
I was provided a review copy of this book.
Stephanie Breedlove sold her start-up for over $50 million. She could relax and not worry about a thing, but instead she is giving back to the world by helping other women achieve their dreams. She has good gut instincts and knew what risks were worth taking. Sure she struggled a lot with family responsibilities but somehow she found a good fit and balance in her life.
In this book you will learn about 18 business strategies. You will also see that there are creative ways to live frugally while you are getting your business off the ground. She asks question like: "Do you have to choose between work and family?" and "What are the skills integral to business success?"
This book gave me a lot to think about and I think it is for every woman not just women who want to start their businesses. It is really about what it takes to be successful no matter what. This book helped me make a decision about something great I'm going to do and I'm not going to let the bad advice of one of my friends deter me. If he's not "All In" with my ideas then I can find people who are.
One thing to consider however is that when you work for yourself you will probably end up working 12 hour days at first instead of 8 or 9. This is a sacrifice when you are starting a company.
So this book has really good advice for women who want to make it big. Stephanie is like a coach saying: "You can do it." I appreciate the confidence she has in her readers. It has sure motivated me to do my best.
