I loved this book and recommend buying it. The Girls' Guide to Building a Million-dollar Business is the type of book you want to have on hand as a guidebook throughout your entrepreneurial career. It is broken into three sections: setting the groundwork for your million $ biz, then part two is how to grow your business and part three is about accelerating your business growth. Natasha's 4 favorite things about the book: 1. How Susan explains WHY you want to build a million-dollar business: personal accomplishment, able to impact the world, you can provide for your family and the families of your employees, you can help others in need, your business leadership gives you a voice that you can use for influence and you become a role model. I agree with her; it doesn't get much better than that. 2. Susan shares that from her experience as a business leader that the two most critical factors in whether your business ever achieves a million-dollar revenue status are your confidence and your determination. That is so exciting! 3. The book is literally stuffed full of personal stories of women who have built million-dollar businesses. The readers get a direct insight into the minds of some of the most influential women in business today. 4. Girls' Guide is written by a woman who has decades of experience building businesses and it shows. Susan shares her mistakes, her advice, her lessons with us. This is not a book on the theory of how to accomplish this business goal but the nitty-gritty on how it was done by someone who has done it. If you're a business woman who has ever wondered EXACTLY how women become leaders of million-dollar businesses, this is the one-stop road map for you.

This book came at the perfect time. I am building a new business and the info Susan provided will help me tremendously. My husband has been in biz for 15 years and he didn't know some of the info. He's going to read it now. Thank you Susan for helping me deal with the initial jitters of taking on the daunting task of building a corporation that will hopefully grow to a multi-million-dollar enterprise. I have a Math & Law background and I found it sophisticated enough for me without being so scholarly that it will intimidate those without college or business experience. It was helpful to see how other women from all backgrounds have built successful businesses. I loved reading about the women who had men tell them their idea would not work or laugh at their idea and they went on to be successful! Awesome. If you are contemplating starting a biz that you want to grow to be a big success, get this book first!
