Overview

This book is for the millions of women that want to drop out of the corporate world of business, but not the world of business entirely. Many women in their 30's and 40's (especially if they begin a family) want more control, flexibility, and fulfillment out of their job. Written just for them, this book shows women how to pursue new and entrepreneurial lives. One of the key and unique points to this book is the author's focus on BUYING an existing business rather than focusing entirely on creating a new start up company. Many women in corporate America have experience in marketing, sales, and management that would allow them to turn an existing, mediocre business into something bigger and more profitable. Featuring first person inspirational stories, key resources necessary for owning your own business, and sage advice this book will get women thinking about their options and how to get started on fulfilling a dream.

    Read this book before you take the leap to business ownership

    This book provides the reader with the tough questions she should ask (especially of herself) and guidance in analysis of the answers. It provides a lot of detailed information to help those considering business ownership on whether they should start-from-scratch, buy existing, partner, purchase a franchise or remain an employee. Chapter 1 is a must read for any woman even thinking about starting a business or in their first year of ownership. This Chapter is to business ownership the same as Kindergarten is to Elementary School - essential preparation. This Chapter provides a huge amount of soul searching and explains the necessary mindset to be successful and happy. It also discusses that factor with which so many women struggle - permission to be a successful, money earning business person. Chapter 2 provides explanations to professional/career women who are considering business ownership about where they are and why. This is a very good exploratory book with great explanations. It strips away the candy coating and provides a good mix of nuts & bolts, dollars & cents, philosophy & psychology. One of the best aids provided by the book is the help in understanding how much control you want and can handle and how that should play into your decision process. The latter chapters provide great details on business types, valuation, legal documents and many other critical pieces of information. I would recommend this book to those women who attend my workshop or read my book ("Capitalizing On Being Woman Owned") because they are trying to make the life changing decision about business ownership.
