One of the most gratifying steps that you can take is starting your own business. This can be an exciting and rewarding venture. The key to business ownership is preparation. Proper planning is one of the most important aspects of starting a business. It defines your capabilities not only as an entrepreneur, but in your personal affairs.
Deborah A. Bailey has created a great resource for women who are ready to be their own boss. “Think like an Entrepreneur” is a book that includes a series of interviews by leading women experts in various industries. It is chock full of expert advice and pearls of wisdom from amazing women entrepreneurs at the top of their game.
When you are thinking of starting a business, there are many questions that come to mind. This book will answer many of those questions in its unique interview style format. For example, each expert shares candidly:
- Difficulties in transitioning into entrepreneurship.
- Challenges faced as a business owner.
- Why they are passionate about their business.
Statistics show that 8 out of 10 businesses fail within the first three years. This is staggering but true! So, it is important to be armed with as much business ammunition as possible. Why not invest in a book where women are open, honest and willing to share their successes and failures; to learn from the experiences of others who have walked the same path.
I am thrilled to be a contributor of “Think like an Entrepreneur.” As a director of a nonprofit agency, business consultant and founder of a virtual community of over 575 women in business and authors, I consult and train hundreds of women yearly and know all too well the challenges faced with starting and growing a business.
“Think like an Entrepreneur,” is a practical guide to making the transition from employee to business owner. I highly recommend this book to be in the hands of every woman who is just getting started.
