Summary of ' Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur '
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.
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.
Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur:
Persevering to Success
This book not
only appeals to readers interested in business, memoirs and life coaching; it
is sure to be a hit with women of all ages, regardless of their business aspirations.
for "Confessions of a Resilient Entrepreneur"
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

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 thats the
magic. Once you've digested the Confessions and get your first taste of The Frumi
Fix, you'll experience inside-out at its best. And I guarantee you'll return
for a daily helping."

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!'
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."
