Savvy Women Entrepreneurs


Twenty-Eight Different Women Share 

the Secrets To Their Business Success


By: Kristina Liehr








Would you like to know how...

a breast cancer patient turns a kitchen-made "health salad dressing" into big money?

a flight attendant started a professional trade show agency by staffing her fellow attendants, expecting a revenue of $2 million for 1998?


a woman with dyslexia who couldn't fill out a job application, borrowed $2,000 to now own the largest consignment furniture chain?


two moms produced a video of baby "mugs" from no experience, which now sells in stores?


You don't have to go to business school to start a business!


These 28 remarkable entrepreneurs tell their step-by-step start-ups which many started from their garage or kitchen, moving eventually into an office or warehouse. Remember Lillian Vernon, she was a "garage entrepreneur."


Savvy Women Entrepreneurs is a wonderful tribute to give you the confidence and inspiration to start your own business. You can learn from the steps that these courageous women took, the obstacles they overcame, and the joy and happiness they have achieved. This book is more than a compilation of success stories, but includes nitty, gritty advice tips for the especially first-time, even second-time entrepreneur.


Each of these women have achieved success in their own way. Women are thinkers and visionaries. They are risk-takers. This is a common thread that each of these women share. Taking chances, experimenting, making mistakes along the way has let them see that one has to make mistakes to learn.


This book is for you if you are ready to start a business because you have a great idea and are ready to change your life, become your own boss, or earn extra income.


After graduating college, Kristina Liehr became a flight attendant which allowed her the opportunity to meet a diverse group of talented women. This gave her the inspiration to pursue this entrepreneurial endeavor to compile stories to inspire and motivate others. After two years, she too knows what it takes to have the perseverance, passion, and drive to bring this book to fruition.
