Being an entrepreneur is a lonely proposition. Where can you learn the tools, tips, and steps to create, build, and grow a successful, sustainable business?

By reading this book, you will learn easy, actionable tips and techniques you can immediately put into action for your business; you will identify where you are on track and what you are missing to continue the success of your business; and importantly you will validate your personal experiences as you read the stories of the lessons learned from other woman founders of small businesses.
I’ve run my own business for over twenty-five years. I have been blessed with opened doors and opportunities to work nationally and internationally. I have published five books. My business has supported the flexibility for raising my children and now spending time with my grandkids.
Financially, my business has had highs and lows, but has generated the comfortable income I desired. While the journey has not always been easy, it has served my family and myself well.
Just as in my consulting business, my work with women solopreneurs began small and grew from one woman to several to a mastermind group to a podcast to this book. I call this my “legacy work.”
This is my opportunity to pour into entrepreneurs all the knowledge, support, introductions, and intuition that I can to help them grow a successful, sustainable business.
