Written by an inspiring woman who has walked the talk and intimatly understands what it takes to succeed.
• Are you a woman who dreams of starting her own business yet you have no clue where to begin?
• Or do you have a business that isn’t performing as well as you’d like?
• Do you know you need to do more marketing but you are not sure what to do first?
In this book, international entrepreneur Marnie LeFevre details how she went from working for Richard Branson to growing her own marketing and branding business from her closet into a successful mainstream agency. Then after catching the business building bug Marnie went on to start, build and grow successful businesses, in many different industries, all over the world. Marnie details exactly how she did this and then shares practical mindset, planning and marketing advice for women starting or growing a business that want to make the money they deserve.
There are plenty of business books out there but few that intimately address what it takes to be a woman trying to grow your own business whilst juggling family commitments, judgement from society, family and friends and other unique challenges only women face in business. Marnie suggests that it is mostly self-judgement women suffer from trying to feel good enough because they haven’t truly accepted themselves for the beautiful women they truly are.
“We struggle to be a perfect wife, daughter, sister, mother, friend whatever category you fit into and forget to ask ourselves what we really want or worse we don’t feel it even matters.” Marnie LeFevre
Marnie’s down to earth, “if I can do it, you can do it” mentoring will carry you along on a learning journey that will show you that because you are a woman you can do anything if you set your mind to it, believe that you can, ask for help when it’s needed and never give up on your dream.
You’ll learn how to package and position your business for entrepreneurial success through online and offline marketing strategies Marnie uses but most importantly this book acts as a guide for any woman looking for support in understanding that the entrepreneurial journey involves growing yourself too.
Topics and 'how to' advice Marnie addresses:
•Branding including Logo
•Social media - Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and more
•Print Media - Flyers and Brochures
•Selling with Heart and more
If you are a female entrepreneur who has a small business or startup this book is for you.
"I wrote this book because there are so few business and marketing books available for women who want to build their own business. Whether we want to admit it or not as women the rules are different and we face different challenges. It's based on my experience as a woman in business and supports the unique female entrepreneur's journey. I wish I had discovered something similar all those years ago when starting my business from my closet. I truly hope it helps make the journey for women seem achievable and less lonely when you hit those challenges we all face eventually." Marnie LeFevre
