About The Book

Rebel girls, young entrepreneurs, and other trailblazing tweens and teens will find inspiring success stories and practical advice for launching their own illustrious careers—right now!

Mini-biographies of leading women entrepreneurs—from Katrina Lake to Oprah, Tavi Gevinson to Sheryl Sandberg, and Ursula Burns to Diane von Furstenberg—offer windows into what it takes to succeed, with a particular focus on the challenges faced (and overcome) by girls and women. Each success story provides different lessons in life and leadership—such as how to:

*identify a lucrative niche

*build and maintain a brand

*grow a loyal customer base

*raise money for research and development

*turn an interest (or a passion) into a career

*build a strong network

Fascinating figures from the words of media, technology, fashion, food, and more share their secrets with tomorrow’s leaders.
