This review is from: Welcome to Entrepreneur Country (Hardcover)
Julie Meyer is a successful self-made entrepreneur. She sold her first company for a substantial amount of money and has now gone on to successfully found and grow another company, Ariadne Capital, which specialises in working with a wide range of entrepreneurs at every stage of their company's growth.
Julie's book is an overview of the business-world at the present time and is also based on her own entrepreneurial story and the stories of many of the founders and leaders of companies of all sizes and at all stages who she has worked with over the years. It is therefore a treasure-trove of wise advice and guidance which all entrepreneurs can learn from.
Julie reveals the highs and the lows which have contributed to her reaching the position she has achieved so far. She shows what the turning points were which enabled her to grow as a person and also thereby to understand the most important characteristics to look for when deciding which entrepreneurs to back financially in order to achieve success. Along the way many remarkable people have impacted on Julie and she shares some of their insights and experiences.
Julie has achieved the position she holds today, an acknowledged authority on every aspect of business growth and exit, through a combination of hard work, perseverance, and a great gift for understanding the zeitgeist of the time which she is always happy to share. She has also achieved success in areas which are frequently dominated by men and her book includes an insightful chapter on the experiences of being a woman in the businessworld, a chapter which should be required reading for all fathers who want to support their daughters in their own careers.
Every business is having to cope with the relatively recent fast changes caused by technology. Julie Meyer supplies a roadmap for the journey, showing how society is reorganising itself and what each business needs to think about in order to achieve maximum success in today's increasingly digital world.
