    The two main things I learnt in this book are: 1) women have a responsibility - not only to strike out as entrepreneurs, but also to set up growth based businesses and employ people (get on with it girls!), and, 2) if having female role models is going to help them do that, than by God Stephanie Breedlove is determined to be one. Rather than there being any great theory of business to share, or specific strategy for success, Breedlove’s well-meaning desire to be a role model seems to be the prime The two main things I learnt in this book are: 1) women have a responsibility - not only to strike out as entrepreneurs, but also to set up growth based businesses and employ people (get on with it girls!), and, 2) if having female role models is going to help them do that, than by God Stephanie Breedlove is determined to be one. Rather than there being any great theory of business to share, or specific strategy for success, Breedlove’s well-meaning desire to be a role model seems to be the prime motivation for this book. It’s a very honourable intention, and for all you get to know of Stephanie during the book, you can assume it’s genuinely held. But somehow reading details of her personal business challenges doesn’t leave me feeling especially enlightened. Plus, there is a quite astonishing assumption at the heart of it that is often repeated: if she can do it, so can we, as we’re all the same aren’t we? She says: “I am most likely similar to you, and I have a journey worth sharing so that it will be traveled over and over again by many women,” before describing details of her “upper-middle-class” background. So, yes, it IS worth sharing. But, well, no - we’re not that similar. I’m not the daughter of entrepreneurs, I don’t have an MBA or a middle-management consulting job, or modest college funds to liquidate in an emergency - although considering the broad span of women who may well be the entrepreneurs of the future I am still probably a lot more like her than many of them! It seems oddly naive for someone so experienced to assume all women will automatically relate to her, see her success, and that will be all it takes to be the future of industry. (Not to mention that in a book ostensibly about female empowerment she confides she once sent a female employee home because her ‘daisy dukes’ interpretation of “shorts Friday” (!) was causing too much distraction....?!?!) A necessary caveat here is that this is the first self-help book I’ve ever read. It caught my eye as I’ve been toying with the idea of setting up a little business, and I thought it would, y’know...help. But what’s on offer is more in the way of very gentle encouragement, along the lines of: you don’t need to give up family time, you can grow confidence along with all the other skills you need as you go, and just go one small step at a time. So if you have everything else in place and you just need a little push, a little ‘we’re all in this together” type spirit, then great. This is the book for you. It is also clearly written and she backs up her thoughts with some interesting statistics and research, although a lot of it is often repeated. The fact is, there IS no set of 10 rules to make it, or a simple list to follow to success; which means Stephanie Breedlove’s book is probably a 1000 times more realistic the many that suggest there is. She’s probably completely right - you just have to dig deep, get on with it and see what happens, no magic formula. I just wish she’d told me that in a twitter post, rather than a whole book.

    I have read quite a few business books over the years and without a doubt this has been my favorite.

She is very knowledgeable and I love that she shares her failures and successes openly so I can learn from them.

This book gives me the confidence to pursue my dream, not just as an entrepreneur but as an entrepreneur that makes a difference. I have a lot of favorite quotes in this book, here are some: "Women and men are called to entrepreneurship for the exact same reasons, yet men answers the call twice as often." Kauffman Foundation "My Greatest accomplishment is doing what it takes to push through the fear, the guilt, the unknown, and the barriers to find fulfillment beyond my wildest dreams on the other side. If entrepreneurship is your calling, if it is the place where you will experience your best talents and a most fulfilling life, then the journey will lead you to go all in and to help create the economic and cultural changes the world needs. Words can't describe its worth. I wish it for ever woman called to entrepreneurship. " You must have passion, purpose, and value in what you are doing and where you are going to do this work." Thank you Netgalley for this book.

    I picked this up at the airport and was excited to read about a successful female entrepreneur whom I hadn’t heard of. The author has experienced incredible startup success, with a $50M+ exit on a business she started based on a problem she was trying to solve when she first hired a nanny. The story has a lot of potential, but it was unclear who the intended audience is. She includes a lot of stats about the lack of support for female entrepreneurs, but I think most people who would pick up the I picked this up at the airport and was excited to read about a successful female entrepreneur whom I hadn’t heard of.

She includes a lot of stats about the lack of support for female entrepreneurs, but I think most people who would pick up the book (including myself) don’t need to be sold on that. The business advice was unfortunately fairly generic. There were some good nuggets, like how she puts “thinking big” into action, but they were buried within the book. At the end, she explains the way they approached the business as a startup and eventually as a growth business. I think this would have been a much more impactful way to structure the overall book - giving the reader her tips and strategies on how she succeeded at various stages of the business. I’m sure she has super valuable advice, but I didn’t get it reading this book.

    Stephanie does an outstanding job of pulling together an excellent list of business strategies critical for entrepreneuers. I found them incredibly valuable as a man, even though they are written for women, and very useful for day-to-day work, regardless of whether you are or are working to be a true entrepreneur or not. Excellent, useful information!!!

    I always love to discover and read about successful female entrepreneur. It's a great way to pick their brains and use their expertise to improve/start your own business. Stephanie Breedlove has an impressive track record. She left her corporate job to build a successful business with a $50M+ exit. All without any previous knowledge of business but with young children to take care of. Now, she teaches fellow female entrepreneurs how to do the same and create businesses that conciliate family and I always love to discover and read about successful female entrepreneur.

She left her corporate job to build a successful business with a $50M+ exit. All without any previous knowledge of business but with young children to take care of. Now, she teaches fellow female entrepreneurs how to do the same and create businesses that conciliate family and work while making an impact on the world. I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I enjoyed learning more about Stephanie's own business journeys and the challenges she faces along day. I find it very inspiring - if she can do it, everyone else can. And that's exactly the message she wants to deliver. Her main aim is to convince more women to become entrepreneurs and she does this well. But if you're looking for practical tips and strategies on how to start a business, grow it and operate it during its various stages, you'll be disappointed. They're few and far between, buried deep within the book. It's a shame because it would have made the book way more helpful.

    Stephanie writes about her transition from the daily grind of the corporate world to being an entrepreneur. She shares the doubts and misgivings she had while embarking on her journey. The challenges of balancing family with growing a business. She provides useful information for women who want to make the same transition. There are step by step guides on how to make the jump and recommended resources which are relevant if you live in the US but also handy to know.

Rating: 3.5/5 Favourite Quote: "Fear of failure fed by lack of perceived skill, summed up as a lack of confidence, was front and center. This is true for every entrepreneur at some level. I didn’t get rid of the fear. I just mitigated it by choosing to minimize the consequences in the event of failure. It did not keep me from wanting to try. It just tempered how all in I was until the concept was proven."
