‘She Takes on the World,’ a Guide for Women Who Want to be Their Own Boss

How does a woman turn her passion into a successful business? Canada’s very own Natalie MacNeil, an EMMY Award-winning media entrepreneur, popular blogger, and thought leader in the areas of entrepreneurship and leadership for women, tries to answer this question in her new book entitled She Takes on the World. The book just launched today and can be purchased on Amazon and at select Chapters and Barnes and Noble stores.

The focus of MacNeil’s new guidebook for aspiring female entrepreneurs is to teach them how to work happy and live on purpose. At the very beginning of the book, MacNeil suggests that the secret to success is “love plus passion plus a need in the market.”

From sharing “lessons and confessions” from other successful female business owners, to identifying ways to develop a “Master Action Plan (MAP),” MacNeil offers helpful advice and actionable steps to take in designing the business of your dreams. Throughout the book, she provides her favourite “gems” which are small tidbits of information about software, websites, or tools that she personally uses to make her work life easier and more efficient.

What I really like about the book is that there are tons of tools that the reader can use to think through one’s business goals and identify opportunities to be more successful. MacNeil really challenges the reader to prioritize what’s most important and “make work work for you.”
