It's official! The book is out!

The culmination of the book publishing journey is when you see your book on the shelf at your local bookstore. And I just did. It was an amazing feeling. It's just like launching a business, really. Getting that first business card printed. Securing your url. It's all about bringing something new to the world. Putting yourself out there.

And as you know, that's the essence of entrepreneurship. Bringing something to the world with your unique spin on it. In Real You Incorporated: 8 Essentials for Women Entrepreneurs I've created a chart to help you remember that spark as your business begins to grow and prosper. The chart is an organizing system, a tool for you to use to make sure you are always referring back to your own unique personal brand and bringing it to the world as a business that is distinctly yours. With break-through authenticity.

At the center of the chart, and the center of life is the truth: It all starts with you. Chapter One - of the same name - illuminates this point with exercises and stories from other entrepreneurs and will help you find the one word that defines you.

It's important. It's where everything starts. With you. The Real You. For more about the Real You Incorporated chart and some examples, visit my website:

And, if you pick up a copy of the book, you'll find out a lot more about the real me and my story. Visit my website and share yours. I'd love to welcome you to the Real You Incorporated community.
