July 15th, 2013, Austin, Texas – Empower Lounge is proud to release a series of step-by-step guides written for the next wave of women thinking about starting a business. The series The Yin and Yang of Starting a Business breaks apart the soft and hard skills needed for an entrepreneur to be successful with a goal to minimize their risk and increase their chances of success. The books are available on Amazon, Kobo, and Smashwords.
“After interviewing women who have built multi-million dollar businesses, we saw a common theme where women wished they’d asked some of the tough questions up front, before they got into it,” said Misty Gibbs, Founder of Empower Lounge. “Entrepreneurship looks sexy on the surface, but it’s important to have an idea of what lies ahead when you’ve chosen this path. I know this from my own experience; it touches all parts of your life, your relationships, your bank accounts, and self-confidence. It’s a big step and we want to help guide women on their initial steps of this journey.”
