Shares personal stories of courage, failure, and success, and introduces a new generation of ambitious women who are breaking barriers and forging their own start-ups.
Koplovitz (founder, USA Networks and Springboard) offers other female capitalists the benefits of her experience, and the lessons of her mistakes. Citing examples of successful businesswomen, she offers advice on creating, launching, and financing new businesses, breaking into the "old-boys'" network, and developing equity. Along the way she presents anecdotes illustrating basic business principles, and offers aphorisms like "If you're not an owner, it's not your business" and "play to win." Annotation c.
