Editorial Reviews


"Kimberly Wiefling's delightful Scrappy Women in Business shatters the myth that the road to success depends on careful foresight and planning. By dissecting the diverse paths taken by eleven successful women, this book demonstrates why the virtues of persistence, improvisation, and embracing messiness and unpredictability are hallmarks of great leaders--and why the ability to develop and stick to a master plan is an overrated virtue." --Robert I. Sutton, http://bobsutton.typepad.com/, Stanford Professor and author of Good Boss, Bad Boss: How to Be the Best...and Learn from the Worst, http://amzn.to/bL1Y6R

"Kimberly Wiefling has created a book that should be required for women of all ages...regardless of whether they are self-employed or employees (and, if an employee, regardless of their 'level' within a company). Each woman featured in this book has achieved significant career success (based on their own personal definition of 'success')and never let obstacles deter their journey. During the toughest times, faced with the biggest challenges, they tapped into their creativity, gut, and brains, and pushed through. Even as a successful twenty-year business owner myself, I learned valuable information from each of their stories and was inspired by all of them." --Lisa Orrell, CPC, The Promote U Guru, Branding Expert, Marketing Consultant, Business Coach, Speaker & Author, PromoteUGuru.com, http://www.PromoteUGuru.com

"Ever have a day when everything goes wrong and you feel lost, defeated, and ready to quit? Well that is when you need to pick up this book and read a chapter. It will energize you with stories of women who faced tough challenges, and beat the odds on their road to success. These stories will save your sanity, keep you afloat and inspire you to pursue your dreams. Keep it handy when you need an energy boost!" --Mala Devlin, Author of The Software Soul, http://amzn.to/96EdtT

"Scrappy Women in Business is a terrific shot in the arm of a book for all of us out there building our lives and our careers on the front lines of the 21st Century. The book is an empowering combination of the honest, wise, practical and humorous advice and experiences of a dozen remarkable women. Kimberly's own compelling story unfolds through the commentary she uses to weave together the remarkable stories of her eleven high-achieving colleagues. Here are intriguing examples and very practical advice to encourage you to keep on keeping on, scrappily changing the status quo while living up to your own potential and improving the lives and environment all around you. As Kimberly so aptly sums up in her book, 'Wooo hooo!'" --Leslie Field, Ph.D., Founder and Managing Member of SmallTech Consulting, LLC, http://www.smalltechconsulting.com/, Founder and CEO of Ice911 Research Corporation, http://ice911.org/, Consulting Professor in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, http://www.stanford.edu/%7Elafield/

"You've heard of the theory of "Six Degrees of Separation?" In Silicon Valley I haven't yet been able to make it more than three degrees before people are connected to Kimberly Wiefling. Everyone has a story to tell about Kimberley. Everyone who's been in her sphere of influence --Sandra A. Clark, Director of Communications, UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley, http://www.ucsc-extension.edu/

About the Author

I'm Kimberly Wiefling,founder and president of my own consulting business, executive editor of the Scrappy Guides©, and the authorof "Scrappy Project Management - The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls EveryProject Faces", growing in popularity around the world, and published in Japanese by Nikkei Business Press. Thebiggest compliment that anyone has ever paid me is that I am a "force ofnature".  Actually, I'm not sure theymeant it in a positive way - they certainly could have been referring todestructive forces like hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and the like.  Nevertheless, Mother Nature is one of myfavorite gal pals, and I'm pleased to be associated with her in this way.  My dad was a welder, my brothers were bothwelders, and if I had been born a boy I probably would have been a welder,too. 
But, as luck would haveit, I grew up in a time when girls weren't encouraged to be welders.  So I went to college instead, earning a B.S.in chemistry and physics and a M.S. in physics.But don't be so quick to write me off, 'cause I've got marketableskills, too!  I spent 10 years workingat HP in various engineering and technical jobs, gotbored with all of the stability and job security of HP, so I quit and joined aseries of failed startups (not all my fault!) and then started my ownconsulting company during the dot-com bust of 2001. In 2004 I partnered with ALC  in Japan to start their Global Leadership & Talent Development Consulting Group.
