From preparing the kind of business you want to run to fine-tuning your image and conflict management style, the inspiring stories and advice offered in the following book will help women entrepreneurs take their businesses to the next level (even if it’s just the first).
The Girl’s Guide to Building a Million-Dollar Business By Susan Wilson Solovic.
Who should read it: Women ready to confront their fears of taking their business ambitions to the next level.
Why this book stands out: Today twice as many men run million-dollar businesses as women–and Solovic, CEO of Small Business Television, gives a thorough explanation as to how women can even out the playing field.
Though the number of women-owned businesses is booming today, Solovic argues that many of these women don’t have million-dollar businesses because they don’t imagine taking their businesses to the next level. While juggling everything in their personal and professional lives, many women fail to grow their businesses because they don’t know if everything will get out of hand. But after consulting women in business for more than 30 years and co-founding a business of her own, she assures readers that establishing a million-dollar business can be done without sabotaging everything in their personal and professional lives.
