Publisher's Summary

Ladies Who Launch is the first company to define the feminine approach to launching a business and to make the connection between starting a business and bringing creativity into your life with self-esteem and happiness.
The nationally acclaimed Ladies Who Launch program has enabled thousands of women across the country to break out of the nine-to-five mold and thrive in entrepreneurial enterprises that reflect their true passions, skills, and desires. Located in more than 40 cities in the United States, the Ladies Who Launch incubators, workshops that give women the support and encouragement they need to embark on making their dreams reality, have inspired women to start businesses, grow existing companies, and tap into their creativity to develop essential services and products and enjoy the lifestyle of their dreams while doing it.
Available for the first time in book form, the four-step incubator process, using self-tests, inspiring stories, and practical information, gives women the courage to follow a cherished but unfulfilled dream. Through this unique program, women are encouraged to:

Imagine it: allow a secret desire to come to light
Speak it: choose a dream to pursue
Do it: take effective action to make it a reality
Celebrate it: revel in successes, reward effort, and be good to yourself along the way
Ladies Who Launch provides a proven approach to igniting a fire under a long-smoldering dream, having more fun, and catapulting a lifestyle, relationship, or occupation to an infinitely higher level.

Does not make for a good audio experience.

While I'm sure this would make a wonderful book, it does not work at all as an audio book. The inclusion of statistic after statistic makes it impossible to get into the groove of the book. I found myself tuning out every time the narrator began "25 percent of women.... " I think a reworking of the book specifically for audio would be a great idea. I wanted to get into the meat of the book, but it bogged down with telling me WHY Ladies Launch, not HOW they launch. Wish I could recommend this one. I think their organization is wonderful, and their efforts are noble, but the audio book. Pass.

Worth reading but needs editing for audio

I would give this a much higher mark (4+ stars) for content than for listening experience. Great inspiration for women starting up. No revelations but very good encouragement and reframing of ideas. An ultimate 'you go girl' book. Good things to think about for raising daughters (ie relationship with money). However, the book includes MANY surveys, all of which are read out line by line, number by number. These should have been summarized as my mind wanders and loses the point every time. Listen if you don't have time to read, but read it rather than listen if you have a choice.
