“Deborah, I am reading your book right now, and it taking me longer than I expected.

“Deborah Bailey’s book, ‘Think Like an Entrepreneur: Transforming Your Career and Taking Charge of Your Life’ is a fabulous read for anyone who is in the process of transitioning. Deborah walks you through the process of going from employee to entrepreneur and covers all the bases of why you may not be succeeding and what you can do to change it.” -Kerry Heaps, Founder Kerry’s Network for Women

“Think Like An Entrepreneur: Transforming Your Career and Taking Charge of Your Life over-delivers what the title suggests. Deborah A. Bailey assumes the roles of coach, counselor, teacher, motivator, mentor, and friend—all in one swoop. The fluid style in which she delivers amazing, relevant content is so captivating that you do not even realize at times, that she is “laying down the law”, requiring you to “man up” or “woman up” and take responsibility for your life’s course.

As a coach, she provides constructive insight and even seems to give feedback as you answer the thought-provoking “Questions to Think About” that jerk you out of your stupor. As a counselor, she builds a relationship with you that is based on mutual respect and trust, as you turn each page. Somehow, you know that she wants you to win. As a teacher, she imparts knowledge to you, her student. That knowledge comes from a place of “I have been there and I have done this”, rather than from some theories she learned from textbooks and journals.

As the consummate motivator, she provides quote upon relevant quote that truly makes you reflect, evaluate, and regroup. Finally, as a mentor she befriends you, her partner on this journey, writing every tip, sharing every story so that your journey can be a lot clearer. You feel like you have known her all of your life and that if you were to get the chance to talk to her, the conversation would never end.

When you turn the last page of this book, you will be equipped with the confidence, direction, and inspiration to move forward with an entrepreneurial mindset and a commitment to transform your life.”

Being an Entrepreneur your journey is often YOU, alone, with many decisions and feelings.  Shift your Thinking supports you and your next steps to live your dream”

“Along with an entrepreneur class in high school, Shift Your Thinking should be required reading.

“One of the most gratifying steps that you can take is starting your own business. This can be an exciting and rewarding venture. The key to business ownership is preparation. Proper planning is one of the most important aspects of starting a business. It defines your capabilities not only as an entrepreneur, but in your personal affairs.

Deborah A. Bailey has created a great resource for women who are ready to be their own boss. ‘Think like an Entrepreneur’ is a book that includes a series of interviews by leading women experts in various industries. It is chock full of expert advice and pearls of wisdom from amazing women entrepreneurs at the top of their game.

When you are thinking of starting a business, there are many questions that come to mind. This book will answer many of those questions in its unique interview style format. For example, each expert shares candidly:

-Difficulties in transitioning into entrepreneurship.
-Challenges faced as a business owner.
-Why they are passionate about their business.

Statistics show that 8 out of 10 businesses fail within the first three years. This is staggering but true! So, it is important to be armed with as much business ammunition as possible. Why not invest in a book where women are open, honest and willing to share their successes and failures; to learn from the experiences of others who have walked the same path.

I am thrilled to be a contributor of ‘Think like an Entrepreneur.’ As a director of a nonprofit agency, business consultant and founder of a virtual community of over 575 women in business and authors, I consult and train hundreds of women yearly and know all too well the challenges faced with starting and growing a business.

‘Think like an Entrepreneur,’ is a practical guide to making the transition from employee to business owner. I highly recommend this book to be in the hands of every woman who is just getting started.” –Sylvia Browder, Founder & CEO, National Association Women on the Rise

“Secrets of a Great Resume”

“This gives a good overall look at what a resume should include. The detailed steps clarified the common resume myths I have heard and reminds the reader to use job specific keywords since more often these days computers scan resumes before a HR ever sees them! I especially liked the “dictionary” in the back with action words to help your resume stand out! This book would be a good guide for a recent grad or anyone reentering the workforce.” –Leah Oviedo

 

“Everyone who looks for job these days needs a resume. Ms. Bailey’s book is a must have for anyone looking for work whether just starting out or needing to update a resume. I highly recommend this book.” – Patricia Marinelli

 

Learn to write a resume that meets the demands of the modern world! Highly Recommended!

Maybe your resume is complete and accurate, but is that enough? The world has changed. The way resumes are prepared have changed, but so have the ways they are evaluated. It is important that you have a well-defined vision of what you need your resume to accomplish. That’s what you will discover in this concise and well-written book. The author does cover the appearance and format issues thoroughly, but she does much more. She covers less obvious details like having a more professional email address just for resume contacts.

Since I am fairly new to using keywords in ebook descriptions, I was surprised to see that companies search for resumes using keywords today. That means I need to have some carefully chosen keywords in my job history, functional skills and career summary. In light of these changes, she also provides insight into the use of social networking to build relationships and locate opportunities. I also appreciated tools such as listings of action words for describing our accomplishments and a resume worksheet that guides by asking questions. I believe most people will find this a very useful foundation for their job search. – Dr. Gary Webb, author of Lasting Weight Loss: A Quick Look
