About the Author

Many of her hacks put into words things I did intuitively in the early days of She's the First. I didn't fully recognize my strengths in those areas until reading this book. 10 years into entrepreneurship (or 20, if you count the origin as my first playground business!), I STILL found wake-up calls in Nathalie's book. A profound question she asks is: Why do you spend so much time thinking about what failure looks like? It's harder--and more important--to think about what crazy levels of success look like.
What really sets this book apart from all others on the business bookshelf is REPRESENTATION. Nathalie is Latinx and cites examples of mostly non-white entrepreneurs, which is a welcome break from most of the books I've read. She writes with a race-gender-class lens that calls out how the rules of the start-up world just don't work for the majority of people with brilliant ideas and solutions.
Because the hacks are in 50 digestible chapters, it's a substantial but fast read that you'll be turning back to time and again when you need a jolt of encouragement.
Every tidbit of advice, strategy and hack are relevant to my life and/or business.
Every woman, entrepreneur or not, needs to read Leapfrog. What a winner!
One of the most important things about this book is that the stories are about real people. The kind of people that didn't come from wealthy families. I make that point because many business books are written by people that have a leg up from birth.
The process that the authors use in this book unravel you to then build you up. From starting with your mindset and way of living to then create a business. I dig how they debunk the prejudices that you typically see against certain types of businesses like franchises and online businesses.
I have more to say on the video, but the main thing is that any chapter of this book could be expanded into a year-long life practice. Each of the Leapfrog Hacks can stand on their own to help you break free from the chains of the status quo.
1) the hacks, of course - smart, succinctly summarized, imminently do-able, illustrated via stories - mesh so well with today's shortened attention spans as well as our always-too-much-to-do 21st century lifestyles.
2) Nathalie includes the stories of and champions so many other women. She says her superpower is storytelling and that is certainly true. And another superpower is elevating others - in an era when so many look at the world and see only "us vs. them", a mindset fueled by the perception of scarcity, Nathalie shows how these hacks expand the proverbial pie, so that there is more for everyone.
Thank you, Nathalie and Sara, for sharing your knowledge, insights and connections. If all the entrepreneurs I know haven't already purchased this by the holidays, this book is what I'll be gifting!
