Taking back my words

Original review: I highly recommend She Means Business by Carrie Green. It tackles the same content without the fluff of this book. While I'm sure the meat in this book was pretty good, I couldn't stand to hear one more thing about the author's mom's cake business. Honestly felt like I wasted my money.

Update: I am officially eating my words and recant my old review. The start of this book was really slow and downright painful for me but once you get past the initial chapters, you'll find that there really is good meat to the book and tons of knitty gritty info most business owners know they must consider but don't know where to start. She helps you with that. While I still recommend Carrie's book for a dose of inspiration, DEFINITELY read THIS book for the logistics and details. After reading this, I've decided to enroll in Christy's Business Boutique Academy. I'm really glad I read this book.

Not just for women

I got this because I'm starting a business. I figured that it was silly to be labeled for women because business is business. I do still think that this can be ready and enjoyed by men (because I enjoyed it), but I now see why she labels it this way. Besides the fact that women are her target market anyway, she speaks to a lot of thing from a woman's point of view. good book. it felt mostly like a motivational book. some chapters I wanted more content, but it's definitely worth reading. and she does a good job narrating too.

Excellent for all

I have been in business for myself since I was 13. I don't claim to know everything, but I wasn't sure if this book would be worth the read as I thought it may be more suited toward new business owners. I was wrong. This is the first time I've ever given a book a five star review on all levels. I just bought hard copies for my mom and sister. Christy does a fantastic job covering all topics, from taxes to the struggles we battle in our hearts and minds. I'm going to listen to it a second time, this time with a notebook to follow all of the actionable steps. Love the stories, the quotes, and all of the points she made throughout it. I love that she also speaks from a faith-based perspective (if you aren't faith based, it isn't enough to warrant not reading/listening.) She is a great speaker and I was captivated every minute. Best self-help/business book I've ever read, and I've read a lot. I've been on a long road recovering from burn out and this just lit my fire for my business again!

Worthy read for those new to business

This book has given me a lot to think about. One read if you take notes will help you get started. I plan on making sure to reread annually, because as your business grows there are more things to consider. It is an enjoyable read with plenty of stories to get you through, but honestly it is the way it is organized that spoke to me the most. It flows through in a way that works with a new business and forces you to think about things you didn't consider before. Definitely recommend.

The little voice inside me wrote a book!

What did you love best about Business Boutique?

I honestly thought she invaded my thoughts, new my problems and was giving me the answers I needed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Business Boutique?

Having the courage to say I want to open a business but I don't know everything there is to know about opening a business and not being afraid to ask for help in the aspects I am not talented in. OWNING my talent and resourcing the talent I don't have.

Which scene was your favorite?

Describing her mom! When Christy describes how she was by her mom's side thru the struggles - I just pray my children will see the same positives for the struggles we have made it thru not that we have!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Leave room for icing!

Full of encouragement, low on details

Business Boutique seems to be focused on timid, God-fearing (and husband-fearing) rural women who want to start a business but are too afraid or don’t believe they deserve it. It’s chock full of encouragement for little women to get started on their dreams, but falls short of feminist, (the author tells the story of how she met her husband as a fable for persistence, but it is a case study in sexual harassment.)

There are some basic organization recommendations for getting started, and the author attempts to manage expectations of running your own business, but all the details are missing. For instance, I wanted to know:

How do I file with my state and federal government to register my business?

What software should I use to manage my income and expenses?

How do I know which social media platforms are best suited for my business and where do I learn best-practices for using them?

What is an email list autoresponder and how do I set it up?

When looking for an accountant, what do I ask?

This book is very encouraging. So if you need a kick in the pants to get started, this could be a great book for you!

But if you’re looking less for “what” to do and more for exactly “how” to do it, you’ll be disappointed.

Ok.... But not Amazing

I was able to set thru the whole audio over a few days. I was inspired at many points and learned a little but it was just ok.... wasn't life changing or business changing for me at all. But I did like the book.

Informative and motivating

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Christy Wright shares good insights into business and the unique obstacles faced by women when it comes to running their own business. As she is American the chapter on taxes etc wasn’t really applicable to me being from the UK so I did skip through that bit but the rest of the book was full of useful info. After each sitting I’d feel fired up and motivated to go work on my small business.

A must for everyone looking to start a business!

I’ve been listening to Christy Wright’s podcast for a few months now and was a bit hesitant on wether or not the book is for me. I was afraid it might be full in motivational stuff only (still very important), but without any practical guideline so I kept postponing reading the book. I couldn’t have been more wrong! I am only halfway through the book now, but it is exactly what I’ve been looking for! The perfect balance between motivation, personal inspiration and step by step guide, answering all of those little questions on how to start a business and where to begin. I’ve already recommended it to a few people, but really couldn’t be more grateful to have this available to me! Thank you, Christy, for making such a positive difference in women’s lives!
