Inspiring and insightful for women of all ages interested in creativity, entrepreneurship and community building. This book is filled with Q and A bios of female entrepreneurs in a spectrum of creative industries and their take on 'success'. The photography is bold and colourful. Infused with delightful quotes that make you stop, reflect and celebrate how unique and passionate each woman is. Here's a taste, "As long as my work continues to foster joy, celebration, community, generosity, and simplicity, I'm on the road to success." Dana Tanamachi , Artist, Graphic Designer

I decided to borrow In The Company of Woman from the library after author & Blogger, Ashley M. Coleman mentioned that she was reading it in one of her newsletters earlier this summer. Listen... This. Book. Should. Be. Required. Reading. For. Women. Everywhere.

This book is nothing short of inspirational. Personally, it was important that I read a book like this at this point in my life, where I find myself at a crossroad between continuing with what I've been doing professionally for the last 7+ years or stepping out of my comfort zone and designing the life I want. I definitely need this book at my disposal, so I'll be purchasing it for my own personal book collection.

Lovely photos. The questions she asks could have been more varied. Especially "what did you want to be when you grew up"? which didn't have many interesting responses.
