"I want to rip out every page of this glorious book and hang them on my wall so that I can be surrounded by these incredible women all day long." —Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of The Vacationers and Modern Lovers Across the globe, women are embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and starting creative businesses. In the Company of Women profiles over 100 of these influential and creative women from all ages, races, backgrounds, and industries. Chock-full of practical, inspirational advice for those looking to forge their own paths, these interviews detail the keys to success (for example, going with your gut; maintaining meaningful and lasting relationships), highlight the importance of everyday rituals (meditating; creating a daily to-do list), and dispense advice for the next generation of women entrepreneurs and makers (stay true to what you believe in; have patience). The book is rounded out with hundreds of lush, original photographs of the women in their work spaces.

Inspiring and insightful for women of all ages interested in creativity, entrepreneurship and community building. This book is filled with Q and A bios of female entrepreneurs in a spectrum of creative industries and their take on 'success'. The photography is bold and colourful. Infused with delightful quotes that make you stop, reflect and celebrate how unique and passionate each woman is. Here's a taste, "As long as my work continues to foster joy, celebration, community, generosity, and simplicity, I'm on the road to success." Dana Tanamachi , Artist, Graphic Designer

I decided to borrow In The Company of Woman from the library after author & Blogger, Ashley M. Coleman mentioned that she was reading it in one of her newsletters earlier this summer. Listen... This. Book. Should. Be. Required. Reading. For. Women. Everywhere.

This book is nothing short of inspirational. Personally, it was important that I read a book like this at this point in my life, where I find myself at a crossroad between continuing with what I've been doing professionally for the last 7+ years or stepping out of my comfort zone and designing the life I want. I definitely need this book at my disposal, so I'll be purchasing it for my own personal book collection.

Lovely photos. The questions she asks could have been more varied. Especially "what did you want to be when you grew up"? which didn't have many interesting responses.
