In the Company of Women
Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs
By Grace Bonney
A New York Times Bestseller, the In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs coffee table book features over 100 influential women, who describe how they embraced their creative spirit, overcame adversity, and sparked a global movement of entrepreneurship. These diverse women run the gamut from media titans and ceramicists, hoteliers and tattoo artists, comedians and architects. Songwriters and musicians such as Neko Case, a personal favorite, also share their thoughts.
Some of the questions the women answer include:
- Name a fear or professional challenge that keeps you up at night.
- Name the biggest overall lesson you’ve learned in running a business.
- Name a woman (or women), past or present, whom you admire or look up to.
- What does success mean to you?
