Business in Red Shoes – a Book for Women Entrepreneurs
Business in Red Shoes - the Successful Business Woman's Guide by Rebecca Jones
Business in Red Shoes shows how you can have the business life, home life and business you want. It just needs planning and consideration, vision and determination.
Business in red shoes will enable you to plan, start and grow a business which suits you, your needs and your life.
"If you are a woman who is thinking about setting up a business and you don’t know where to start, this book is for you.
Rebecca Jones shares her unbiased advice for making that critical decision that many women face – should you stay in the comfortable (but possibly boring) security of the employed world or go it alone (and do something you love)? She talks about the pros and cons, explores why you want to set up your business in the first place, and what else you need to consider to make sure your business fits in with your life.
I love this book as it strips setting up a business back to basics, giving you a chance to ensure that you are making the right decision before you jump in feet first. Rebecca also shares the stories of some of the clients, the mistakes they have made and their successes too. This is a must-read if you are considering making the plunge." ---- Karen Williams, coach and author of The Secrets of Successful Coaching
"I’m finding your book so useful for me and my new business – I wish I had read it years ago, at a time when I knew that I wanted my own business, but got myself in a tizz not knowing quite the right path for me. I’m now doing something I love so much and which suits my skills and personality, but I certainly didn’t take the quickest route to get here! Just reading the first part of your book could have saved me lots of time and confusion." ---- Kathy De Mattia, PR Consultant at Guru Street
"This is an inspirational and positive book: 'Together we are going to take your dream and turn it into reality now'. In this A5 size book, that can be carried in a handbag, Rebecca Jones does just that. Each practical and “you can do it chapter”, written in plain English, ends with a useful one page review for reference." ---- Sue Moules, author and poet
"I’ve been musing about writing a book since I began working with Motivating Mum but have had to put my ideas on hold while I get to grips with the business first. Looking at Business in Red Shoes, this is the book I would like to have written, well laid out, with a friendly and engaging style, and including all the tips that I might have given to mums starting out in business, with many more of Rebecca’s own. I hope this book does well – it certainly deserves to. The book is available in paperback or on Kindle." ---- Debbie O’Connor, Motivating Mum UK
"Rebecca's new book Business in Red Shoes should be compulsive reading for every woman considering starting her own business and trying to balance lifestyle, work and family. The book is sprinkled with examples taken from real life which demonstrate how it is possible to achieve a happy equilibrium.
In her first book, Rebecca Jones, the author, has drawn on her knowledge as a business consultant and mentor to outline the step-by-step process of how to come-up with a suitable business idea that best suits an individual’s lifestyle, how to develop the idea further and how to actually get the company started and how to have the right structure to operate successfully.
The book is easy to read and is crammed with sensible advice and guidance. The section on developing an effective business plan comprehensive and is full of simple ideas and useful suggestions.
Business in Red Shoes discusses the importance of identifying and retaining customers and outlines a number of sensible sales and marketing ideas. The book emphasises the value of having a support network and draws extensively on Rebecca Jones’ own experiences as an inveterate networker.
The book would have benefitted from a final, inspirational, chapter on successful female entrepreneurs who started on the kitchen table and who have now become household names such as Anita Roddick, Emma Bridgewater and Cath Kidston.
Business in Red Shoes falls short of dealing with many of the common pitfalls encountered when actually running a business including confusing income with profit, failing to select the right sort of people and dealing with excessive bureaucratic paperwork. With a bit of luck, Rebecca Jones is saving all this material for her second book which hopefully will be equally informative and educational."---- Nick Bradley, Managing Director A. C. L.
Business In Red Shoes – Women In Business review of book for female entrepreneurs
The best organisation to review Rebecca’s new book ‘Business In Red Shoes’ which is out to help all existing and prospective female entrepreneurs is 'Women in Business' This is what one of the biggest female business networks had to say about the book.
“I wish this book had been available when I first set up in business. Unlike similar books Rebecca’s book engaged me. It is practical and a ‘doing’ book rather than talking at me.
I loved the way it guides the reader to think about what kind of business would best suit their experiences and lifestyle. There are lots of gems in this book based on both Rebecca and her clients’ experiences. Rebecca takes you on a journey so start at the beginning.
I would recommend this book not only to women thinking about going solo but also those who have already set up a business”. ---- Sylvia Westrup, Director – Westrup Associates Ltd & Chair – Women in Business West Kent
