So many of us 'lifestyle entrepreneurs' work alone and are committed to following our passion(s) even when it is challenging and lacks financial stability (and even reward). We can't help it - we just have to pursue our dream!

SOUL PROPRIETOR: 100 Lession from a Lifestyle Entrepreneur is a great guide and reference for beginner and experienced entrepreneurs. Short, to-the-point examples confirm that it isn't just me who struggles with some of these issues and inspires me to explore my options and keep pursuing my dreams.

(In addition to this book, which I've recommended to many entrepreneurial friends, I also own the CD of this book. Great for trips, it is just good, solid information!)
lets go baby
A must for anyone contemplating going into business or anyone already in business. Many helpful hints for dealing with life situations as well as business ones. It is well written and in a simple to read format.

Enjoyed the book very much....Then had the opportunity to hear the author speak....she is terrific! We were not only entertained, but also inspired. I found her to be warm and friendly....a very approachable and lovely person. She definitely knows her stuff----of course she would because she lived it!

Where was Jane's book when I was starting out in business over 15 years ago? I can recall searching in vain for similar words of wisdom. I knew there had to be others-like me-dealing with the disheartening experience of not being taken seriously as a businesswoman.
Today, I consider myself more successful than I ever though possible. I learned some lessons described throughout Jane's book, the hard way. In some cases I was fortunate enough to have a mentor to easy my way.
A decade and a half of experience has not taught me all I need to know about being in business. I found Jane's book to be filled with many insights that I know will be helpful to me in the future. I also found it encouraging to know I wasn't alone, in dealing with difficulties that often arise among creative entrepreneurs.
In the book, Jane was especially adept at giving insight into dealing these "bumps in the road," and most helpful in outlining how to turn these obstacles into opportunities.
I frequently reread the book for inspiration. I have given many copies as gifts to my friends and colleages. I'm overwhelmed with their gratitude for sharing such a wonderful book. Thank you Jane for sharing your wisdom and knowledge!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it taught me a lot of lessons that I can immediately put to use in my own business. Jane shares her fears and her failings as well as her successes and I totally admire the way she works. She is an unstoppable woman and I'm really glad this book came to my attention.

In a portion of the book, Ms. Pollak describes an incident where someone came up to her and told her that during her speech her examples were trivial, this person could not have been more right.
As an entrepreneur, I cannot believe the hype over this book from the reviews here to the Today show. This book left me turning from page to page, thinking there was something enlightening coming somewhere right up and until the end of the book.
I would only recommend this book for the fresh out of college, any seasoned entrepreneur knows 150% more than what is in this book.

If you're looking for a how-to guide or directions on how to accomplish a certain task, look elsewhere. This is a good book in it's own right though. It offers short (1-3 pages) examples and anecdotes of lessons on dealing with the trials and tribulations of owning and running a small business. It's nice to see it's not all peaches and cream.
I loved reading Jane's book. She has a delightful writing style (and speaking style, for those fortunate to hear her speak) and she shares her experiences with wonderful wit and wisdom. Jane speaks and writes from the heart and clearly has interest in helping others benefit from her own experience and learning along the way. The book is written in a very readable and practical style, and any entrepreur can garner lessons from reading this book! You will likely find yourself smiling at many of Jane's stories as she so genuinely shares the ups and downs along the path to becoming an entrepreneur!
