“Having been a part of a founding trio of women for nearly a decade now, I am often amazed when people express surprise that such a partnership exists—and has thrived for so many years. I’m gratified to see Betsy Polk and Maggie Ellis Chotas focus specifically on partnerships between women and explore their unique attributes and strengths. Shining a light on successful partnerships can only encourage more of such partnerships!”
—Elisa Camahort Page, cofounder and COO, BlogHer, Inc.
“In the midst of the heated debate between the stay-at-homes and the frantic-jugglers, the resentful who had to stop and the resentful who wish they could, Power through Partnership shines a light on an exciting option for women everywhere. In this thoughtful and thorough examination of the benefits of partnership, Betsy Polk and Maggie Ellis Chotas provide us with a blueprint for leveraging what women do best: working together.”
—Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, coauthors of The Nanny Diaries and business partners for thirteen years
“Need more flexibility in your life? More support? More inspiration? The solution is simple: find a business partner! Polk and Chotas have written a thoughtful and practical guide to forming and sustaining a partnership. As someone with a longtime writing partner (my brother!), I found myself nodding a lot as I read.”
—Dan Heath, coauthor of the New York Times bestsellers Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive
“This is the book for every woman eager for a better way to work and lead. Through partnership, women are capitalizing on strengths and leveraging dynamic networks of sisters, friends, and colleagues to achieve success. Power through Partnership shows the way!”
—Joanna Strober, coauthor of Getting to 50/50 and CEO, Kurbo Health
“Business rhetoric is full of heroic soloists—but the deeper truth is that no business succeeds alone. The great success stories derive speed, spread, and impact from partnerships and alliances. This book is a critical contribution to the business story of the century: the rise of female entrepreneurship.”
—Margaret Heffernan, author of Willful Blindness and A Bigger Prize
Female partnerships are deeply rewarding and a powerful way for women to advance in a world still suffering from gender bias. So why don’t women work together more often? Polk and Chotas address the myths and fears that keep women from partnering and offer expert advice on how to make female partnerships thrive.

These examples are so moving and support the authors' key message; when we team up we create something so much more powerful than either of us can alone. This is a beautifully written and solution focused book that you will want to give every woman who is not sure how to tap into the power of the “trusted allies” in her midst. Betsy Polk and Maggie Ellis Chotas are thankfully there as our trusted guides.
As a mentor to rising star women, and the father of three daughters, this insightful, brief book has provided me with examples, do's and don'ts for successful women partnerships that I will be sharing for a long while.
