The 6 Moment Guide Summary of The Sassy Women? Toolkit For Commence-Up Companies by Michelle Girasole, Wendy Hanson, And Miriam Perry
The Sassy Ladies’ Toolkit for Start-up Businesses is a very relevant, useful tool for anyone interested in being her (or his) own boss. The book takes the idea of starting a business and breaks it down into steps. The authors use the metaphor of a journey to aid the entrepreneur in starting down the road.
The book starts off having the prospective business owner visualize a variety of things. She should visualize herself performing the job she has chosen and where that will get her in her life. It also encourages the use of positive thinking and has her change negative thoughts to positive affirmations. In each chapter there is encouragement, bolstered by pertinent advice.
Throughout the book and at the end of each chapter there are exercises to maintain focus to accomplish the task at hand. The questions posed at the end of each chapter ask not only to state what was discussed, but how the business owner will apply the ideas put forth, to her particular endeavor. The exercises require a good amount of thought and provide a practical means to accomplishing each individual step. Approached properly, performing these exercises would seem to make the business start-up process almost fool-proof.
Not only do the authors offer advice, they have quotes of other successful women in business throughout the entire book. At many points the authors give their own personal opinions on a topic, many times differing from one another greatly. The other women business owners reinforce the ideas the authors are conveying and expand on them to foster a deeper, more precise basis of the information offered to the reader.
