Introduction: The Heart of a Woman in Business

The book, Heart of a Woman in Business, is dedicated to women in the workplace—be it at a job in our chosen field or one we found along our career path. Employed or self-employed. “Sisters” share their tips, ideas, and insights for raising the bar, striving for success and living dreams.

We bring balance to chaotic environments, inspiring cooperation and harmony. We bring our gifts of vision, intuition, and creativity to whatever we do—and wherever we choose to do it. Our jobs do not define us. Instead, we bring our essence to our jobs—in our choice of service to others and the world. How we serve others is an extension of our love as we joyfully align with our gifts and our authenticity. More than ever before our voices are heard and our skills are respected.

I determined at age thirteen that life is too short to have a job I wouldn’t like. If I couldn’t find a job to do what I wanted to do, I would create my own . . . and at age sixteen I started my first of eight businesses. In corporations, I held executive positions and succeeded in positions that were stereotypically held by men. These jobs were vital training for what I do today, helping organizations create positive work environments, boost motivation, and improve morale.

Many of the contributing co-authors to the book have similar stories. The core message of the Heart of a Woman in Business is about having that passion—every day— for what we do.

The book is an ideal gift for those women with whom you work … be they administrative assistants, executive assistants, the CEO, CFO, COO … or the nice lady down the hall who helped you do something.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Expected, October 16, 2008
I expect books in the Heart Book series to be compelling, evocative, inspirational and useful. Heart of a Woman in Business is even more. Tightly edited (lots of contributors didn’t make the cut), each story has its own punch and vitality. It’s women speaking with, and to, women in both a very personal way and as kindred professionals. It’s worth reading and worth keeping close as a ready reference for those moments when…
