Fact: one out of every 11 American women is a business owner. Women own nearly half of all privately held start-up businesses, and the number of women who want to become entrepreneurs continues to rise.
Fact: women account for one-half of all legally sanctioned marriages (and divorces) and are still the only ones that give birth to babies.
How do they do that?
"Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur: Persevering to Success" demonstrates the balancing act that women – and men – have to perform in order to “do that”: integrate a business life with a family life. A personal journey through the author’s public evolution from physical therapist to businesswoman to entrepreneur to executive coach, Confessions speaks to the starry-eyed young entrepreneur who has big business ideas but no idea of what it takes to have it all, as well as the well-established business leader who has achieved success and now wants to somehow fit a life into those dreams. It describes and encourages the attitudes and belief systems that “grow” an entrepreneur – and illustrates what happens when those attitudes and belief systems come up against hard reality.
Written in easy, conversational prose, Confessions of a (Recovering) Serial Entrepreneur relays the experiences of executive coach Frumi Rachel Barr, PhD, as she discovers the hidden lessons of entrepreneurship, and has to apply them in the face of some of life’s harshest realities: rape, cancer, gender discrimination, multiple divorce, and national scandal. It reveals how the systems and strategies that serve her so well in business also help her achieve and enjoy some of life’s greatest pleasures: four wonderful children, a succession of beautiful homes in two countries, and the opportunity for unrestricted growth.
