Format: Paperback
When I set up my company I just did what I thought was right - for right or wrong. I did not seek any formal business advice, nor study any business books as the books I came across did not feel relevant to me as a working mum who had only ever worked for big companies and never for myself. I just bimbled along and attribute the fact that I am still here, and trading at a profit, more to luck and good judgement than because I researched what others in my situation had done before me to learn what they did to become successful. This book would have answered a lot of questions and filled gaps in my business knowledge - if only it had been around 7 years ago!

Even though I am no longer at the start-up stage I have still found myself dipping in and out of this book - the Pearls of Wisdom section and its tips from others who have trodden the same path as me is a particular favourite.

The drop-in-and-out style makes the book very accessible - as busy people it is not always possible to read a book from cover to cover in one go. This book is set out in bite-sized chunks and is very easy to read. The author does not assume anything so the book therefore suits every level of businesswomen, from the most green to the most experienced - there is something for everyone.

Well done Sandra. Any more books on the horizon?

Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant book which I recommend to anyone who wants to start their own business as well as anyone who is already in business. The book is easy to read and you can just read the subjects which interest you the most if you wish. There is lots of useful information, down to earth guidance and the case studies add a more personal touch.
There are a lot of "business advice" books out there but this one really tops the list. Thanks Sandra for such a great book, I am sure it will help a lot of women!

Really enjoyed reading this - covers all the basics with useful checklists and prompts. Great case studies and written in plain English whilst still being entertaining. A must for anyone considering starting a business. A great gift, too, for those mums you know showing entrepreneurial spirit.

Format: Paperback
The title of this book is very apt. Its reach is much wider than the 'how to' of setting up a business. It covers a more rounded view of self employment, and encourages the reader to explore personal choices and motivations. The case studies are interesting and varied -it's always so valuable to learn about the experiences of real women on their business journey. This is definitely a book to dip in and out of. It's good book choice for trainers and coaches to recommend to their delegates and clients, as the different chapters complement such a wide range of personal and business development topics; from lifestyle to employing staff. There is something of interest here, for all women in business, whether you have an established company, or you are just starting out.
