Summary of ' Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur '

"Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur: Persevering to Success" demonstrates the balancing act that women - and men - have to perform in order to integrate a business life with a family life. Confessions speaks to the starry-eyed young entrepreneur who has big business ideas but no idea of what it takes to have it all, as well as the well-established business leader who has achieved success and now wants to somehow fit a life into those dreams. It describes and encourages the attitudes and belief systems that "grow" an entrepreneur - and illustrates what happens when those attitudes and belief systems come up against hard reality.

Written in easy, conversational prose, 'Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur' relays the experiences of executive coach Frumi Rachel Barr, PhD, as she discovers the hidden lessons of entrepreneurship, and has to apply them in the face of some of life's harshest realities: rape, cancer, gender discrimination, multiple divorce, and national scandal. It reveals how the
systems and strategies that serve her so well in business also help her achieve and enjoy some of life's greatest pleasures: four wonderful children, a succession of beautiful homes in two countries, and the opportunity for unrestricted growth.

Praise for "Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur"

  • "No one is better equipped to coach and nurture female entrepreneurs than Frumi, herself a successful entrepreneur, mother, friend and community leader. If 'The Little Engine That Could' were re-written just for women entrepreneurs, 'Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur' would be it. Frumi understands an entrepreneur's excitement, temptations and fears intimately because she's 'been there, done that.' Reading her story is like swallowing a big dose of courage. You feel as though you could overcome anything because she has faced life's hardest challenges with aplomb and transformed herself into a stronger, happier and better woman each time.”
    Cara Good, President, WunderMarx Inc.

  • "The Frumi Fix is a recipe for turning yourself inside out so your true self can shine. Frumi reminds us it is in the stew of our total life experiences that we have every ingredient necessary to create, and serve, our special offering to others. What she delivers is not her personal ingredient list, rather the inspiration and courage to mix up our own ­- from the inside out. And that’s the magic. Once you've digested the Confessions and get your first taste of The Frumi Fix, you'll experience inside-out at it’s best. And I guarantee you'll return for a daily helping."
    Ann Hult Crowell, A Recovering CEO, Author & Speaker

  • "Frumi Rachel Barr inspires us to not let catastrophes get in the way of our success. Sure, things can get crummy, but if we keep our focus up and our eyes open, we'll see doors open for us. In experience after experience, Frumi illustrates how asking ourselves the right questions allows the best answers to show up. Frumi's book is a page turner, and I loved the advice she gives at the end. This special book is a keeper!"
    Joanne Rodasta Wilshin, Author 'Take a Moment and Create Your Life!'

  • "Don't miss this book filled with personal courage as Frumi bares her soul telling how she overcame whatever obstacles were put in her way. Resilience is Frumi's authentic real deal -- what it takes to create a purposeful, fulfilling life. A definite must read for everyone (not just women) who wonders if they have what it takes to follow their dreams."
    Marilyn August, Author, 'Journey to Wealth & Wisdom'
