one out of every 11 American women is a business owner. Women own nearly half
of all privately held start-up businesses, and the number of women who want to
become entrepreneurs continues to rise.
women account for one-half of all legally sanctioned marriages (and divorces)
and are still the only ones that give birth to babies.

of a Resilient Entrepreneur: Persevering to Success" demonstrates the balancing
act that women and men have to perform in order to integrate a business
life with a family life. Confessions speaks to the starry-eyed young entrepreneur
who has big business ideas but no idea of what it takes to have it all, as well
as the well-established business leader who has achieved success and now wants
to somehow fit a life into those dreams. It describes and encourages the attitudes
and belief systems that grow an entrepreneur and illustrates
what happens when those attitudes and belief systems come up against hard reality.
in easy, conversational prose, Confessions of a (Recovering) Serial Entrepreneur

the hidden lessons of entrepreneurship, and has to apply them in the face of some
of lifes harshest realities: rape, cancer, gender discrimination, multiple
divorce, and national scandal. It reveals how the systems and strategies that
serve her so well in business also help her achieve and enjoy some of lifes
greatest pleasures: four wonderful children, a succession of beautiful homes in
two countries, and the opportunity for unrestricted growth.

excitement, temptations and fears intimately because she's 'been there, done that.'
Reading her story is like swallowing a big dose of courage. You feel as though
you could overcome anything because she has faced life's hardest challenges with
aplomb and transformed herself into a stronger, happier and better woman each

and courage to mix up our own - from the inside out. And thats the
magic. Once you've digested the Confessions and get your first taste of The Frumi
Fix, you'll experience inside-out at its best. And I guarantee you'll return
for a daily helping."

to not let catastrophes get in the way of our success. Sure, things can get crummy,
but if we keep our focus up and our eyes open, we'll see doors open for us. In
experience after experience, Frumi illustrates how asking ourselves the right
questions allows the best answers to show up. Frumi's book is a page turner, and
I loved the advice she gives at the end. This special book is a keeper!"
