Product description


This is a very clearly written book on an important and growing issue in business.Ginny says it how it is with her direct style of writing.The honesty is refreshing and the clear sense of 'practical wisdom' contained within these pages is inspiring.The vignettes are insightful, practical and grounded in a lived reality.This is a 'must- read' for anyone looking to work with the right mentor to sustain their business. Bob Garvey PhD, co-founder of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (UK).

The main reason start-ups fail is that the entrepreneur's efforts and energy go into growing the business, with none left for growing themselves. That's where a mentor comes in. This easily-accessible book provides a recipe for finding and using a mentor to best effect. David Clutterbuck, international mentoring, coaching, & leadership expert (UK).

Dr. McGowan provides a welcome guiding light to those who have an important message to share with the world.This book illustrates each step in your path from identifying your purpose and vision to creating a success path; it reveals the secret of success as a solopreneur: finding the right mentor and creating the right to be mentored. Follow the doctor's advice: Use the proven power of mentors to make money while pursuing your passion. Mark Champagne Ph.D., researcher, serial entrepreneur, author (USA).

This is a 'must have, must read' book for anyone thinking of becoming a solopreneur or who is already a solopreneur. The author recognizes the need for personal and professional mentoring. All too often, mentor programs focus on the professional growth of the mentee and fail to look at the personal side of the equation. This book clearly demonstrates the importance and significance of doing so. The author also recognizes that both the mentor and solopreneur will learn and grow together. This has become the differentiating factor when deciding on whether on not mentoring is the choice for each person. As a solopreneur wanting to continue your journey, this is the book that you must have. Can you afford not to? Doug Lawrence, President, TalentC(R) People Services Inc. (Canada).

This book takes the fear out of being a solopreneur by providing a roadmap for what to do to have your questions answered and your future clarified by someone who's 'been there and done that.' S. Paul Kearley, Pres., IBC Impact Business Communication, Inc. (Canada).

This book hits squarely at the heart of mentoring and its critical importance.As a guide to developing an effective, healthy mentoring relationship, Virginia's book is an exceptional 'how to' manual for the much-neglected solopreneur. Practical, accessible, and containing clear advice, it's a must-read for anyone in business by themselves. Don Pontefract, author of Open to Think, The Purpose Effect, and Flat Army (Canada)

A much-needed book to fill the void in the business mentoring field for niche solopreneurs. This book is written in an engaging, energizing, and pragmatic way to make a busy solopreneur sit up and find themselves a mentor! The unique intertwining of personal and business planning support is handled beautifully. Virginia is also not afraid to tackle the tricky topics of evaluation and how to say goodbye, both more difficult topics outside of an organizational program. I recommend this practical and very readable guide to any solopreneur who wants to tap into the powerful support of a mentor. Lis Merrick, Managing Director, Coach Mentoring Ltd. (UK)
