Peppered with stories from women who have been there, from cautionary tales to success stories, The Boss of You provides readers with real advice and career options that will allow them to live their values and achieve their own version of work-life balance.Whether you are an established professional or an entrepreneurial newbie, The Boss of You is the definitive guidebook for starting, maintaining, and enjoying your own business.

MOST AMAZING BUSINESS BOOK I HAVE EVER PICKED UP!

I have read business books.. and a LOT of them! This was the first to break EVERY step down, spoke to women, but still kept every concept seriously business related. I mean "REAL" business related.
For the first time, I understand business finances..i've been doing it WRONG the entire time! I have also NOT been paying myself, a HUGE no, no, EVEN if your a one person star-up! You MUST read this book if you want to start RIGHT! Like I said, I have read what have been touted to be the "best" business books on the market... not one of them tops this one!

Recommend!

Very good information... the only reason that I did not give a 5 star rating is because of the narration. The reader sounds like she's talking to a child a little too often for my taste. Otherwise, it has some very basic operational information for the new women owned business!!
