Praise for Women Entrepreneurs Only "Although everyone defines success differently, the twelve women profiled in this book share the same important qualities--ingenuity, intelligence, and determination. Their stories of how they launched their companies and triumphed as women entrepreneurs are a must-read for anyone looking to join the ranks of successful business owners." --Lillian Vernon, founder and Chief Executive Officer Lillian Vernon Corporation Praise for What's Luck Got to do with it? "This powerful, fascinating book reveals a microcosm of our country--past, present, and future. These remarkable people are truly proactive visionaries who create concepts, not just problem-solve." --Dr. Stephen R. Covey author of the bestseller The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People "Any aspiring entrepreneur can learn a lot from the real-life stories of these architects of the business success stories of the '90s as told in What's Luck Got to Do With It? This is not an academic treatise, but war stories from real people who have actually done it--and lived to tell their tales." --Stan Davis coauthor of Blur: The Speed of Change in the Connected Economy In their own words.
