Women business owners have spent a fortune on training, seminars, and masterclasses, with the aim of using the acquired knowledge to grow their businesses but unfortunately, very few of these workshops actually enlighten them on the challenges they are going to face in the business world and how to overcome them. This new book Women in Business ~ Leading the Way is designed to fill that gap in training and knowledge. The book will feature conversations with successful WBE Certified business leaders that have achieved success, offering some insight on how they beat the odds, overcame obstacles and barriers. The extremely valuable and realistic business insight will be shared from those who have succeeded, offering suggestions on how to manage a business including career transitions and challenges, balance business, and personal life, and how to reach out for support to get help sooner rather than later, and much more. Get true-life stories, real experiences tested ideas, tried and genuine business solutions so you too can Lead the Way.
