Reviews

"A must read for those trying to understand the motivations and profile of the female entrepreneur. The book explores the topic globally, and offers a glimpse into the similarities and differences of women entrepreneurs worldwide. An excellent reference tool for anyone who markets to or supports women entrepreneurs."-Bill Bonnstetter, President TTI Performance Systems, Scottsdale, Arizona
"As president of a company founded by a woman, I highly recommend this book for the insight it provides into the phenomenal growth of women business owners. Small business provides the backbone for our nation's economy. Much of the growth in small business over the last ten years has been from small women-owned firms, who generate over $3.6 trillion in annual sales. That statistic alone indicates the importance of this subject and the timeliness of this book."-Robert C. Smith, former Chairman of the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), and President, Spero-Smith Investment Advisers, Inc., Cleveland, Ohio
"The Rise of Women Entrepreneurs identifies the trend of phenomenal growth in women-led businesses. Fostering the success of women business owners strengthens the economy and provides a source of political, economic, and social innovation. This book is an excellent resource, which provides direction and focus to organizations and businesses that support or market to women business owners."-Sandra Hernandez Adams President, National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) President, Strategic Micro Partners, Miami, Florida
"You need to be one to know one, to translate trigger points into a winning action plan. Jeanne Coughlin is not only a successful entrepreneur, but in this book, she provides a well-structured roadmap for success. Don't let the word 'woman' in the title dissuade the male entrepreneur from reading and learning. I could have used this book in 1988 when I started OfficeMax with one store, which has grown into a chain of 1,000. This is an informative read that will remain on one's desk for constant reference."-Michael Feuer, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder, OfficeMax, Inc., Cleveland, Ohio
