"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

These stories will save your sanity, keep you afloat and inspire you to pursue your dreams.

About the Author
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.
