She's So Boss is a wonderful guide to educate females how to start their own business. Stacy Kravetz does a remarkable job breaking down all the main aspects of how to be an entrepreneur. The book is divided into sections such as starting with an idea, brand awareness, how to utilize social media to promote your business and how to borrow money and eventually how to gain a profit.

Testimonials are scattered throughout the chapters about females entrepreneurs and what they learned from running a business. They also provide valuable tips. The layout of the pages is easy on the eyes and charts are provided to divide the information. Testimonials are in block quotes against a blue background.  Each chapter has a powerful quote by a female in leadership. Hearing positive advice from female peers and female founders encourage females to reach higher and that they can do whatever they set their minds to. Not only does this boost self-esteem for girls but it's empowering them. Tap into your interests and seek out a passion! Do what you love to do!

Although I do not run a business, I can use a lot of these tips in order to promote my blog or to help me in my current job when we plan to fundraise. My current students can benefit from a lot of the tips mentioned in this book. Whether you plan to start an Etsy shop or plan to launch a new product via Kickstarter, definitely pick up She's So Boss!
