Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a book launch party for a dynamic new author and entrepreneur - Danielle Tate. 

Elegant Entrepreneur: The Female Founders Guide to Starting & Growing your First Company is the book I wish I had read many years ago when starting my business.  It would have saved me months of lost time, misstarts and self-doubt.

Danielle earns credibility with her entrepreneurial background.  At the age of 25, Danielle was frustrated with all the red tape and complications in the simple act of changing her name after marriage.  As with all good entrepreneurs, she took this problem, researched the market and founded the online business, MissNowMrs. Her company is now a multi-million-dollar enterprise.

Danielle takes the learnings from starting her first business and distills them into wise, yet digestible, chapters beginning with a kernel of a business idea, to growth, funding and finally exit.  She explains each stage with real life examples from her own and dozens of other female entrepreneurs.  Each chapter ends with actionable insights, so you can put it all to use.

What I find unique and especially meaningful in Elegant Entrepreneur is its focus on female entrepreneurs.  Ms. Tate directly addresses issues such as confidence, work-life balance and how it feels at each stage – tapping into the power of intuition.  I also appreciate the unwavering focus on making money and the tough persistence to get there.

SCORE will be hosting a free webinar with Danielle Tate on Thursday, April 7th at 2 pm EST.  Having heard her speak, I can guarantee it will be worth it.  Register to learn more: "Building, Bootstrapping and Believing in Your Business Website​" webinar.
