More and more women are succeeding in the business world these days. Many of them launched careers in the 1970s -- and are just now breaking through the glass ceiling. Or they are a part of the last generation of stay-at-home moms, and now that the kids have grown up, these women have found the confidence and drive to start their own businesses. Who are they and how did they get to where they are?

Women Who Mean Business profiles more than over seventy successful businesswomen in their forties -- from every state and Canada -- to inspire and instruct future and current businesspeople nationwide.

The author interviewed CEOs and CFOs, entrepreneurs and owners. Among the success stories are a woman who began her own music label and another who bought a forklift-manufacturing company. Some handle million-dollar clients and others hope to see their profits run into the millions one day. There's an amazing diversity of education and upbringing among these women. But whether they are single mothers or women of color, MBAs or highschool graduates, they've all found success in business that both challenges and fulfills them.

In Women Who Mean Business, they offer firsthand advice on how to get ahead, reveal what their day-to-day workload is like, and give suggestions on balancing work and home life. They offer an inside look at what women in business can expect from their male counterparts, show how the business world has changed, and divulge how they deal with stress and pressure. What makes them do what they do and what the rewards and costs can be are also part of these fascinating profiles.

Exemplary and encouraging, this unique book delivers a welcome message: The corporate climate is changing, and all across America there are new challenges, new opportunities, and new promise for Women Who Mean Business.
