    19. I have never read a more complete book on the processes, challenges, and secrets of becoming a successful entrepreneur. The Elegant Entrepreneur takes the traditional applications approach to biz literature and extends it with real world examples, institutional contacts, and emotional insights.

    21. Since I have an interest in someday starting my own company, when I see guides on "how to" set up one, I tend to request them. And when they're aimed at women, there's no way I'm not clicking that request button. Anyway, Elegant Entrepreneur is basically geared towards women who want to set up their own companies. It basically takes you from idea (start) to selling your company (end, if you choose). The author is the founder of a business called MisstoMrs, which is supposed to be a successful bu [...]

    22. The book is a very good helper for anyone starting a business, especially women. This is because Danielle has been there, founding the successful missnowmrs name changing site.

I felt many of the feelings she describes, when I first set up in business. What got articulat [...]

    23. Review Title: Thorough, Covers the Whole Business (review of The Elegant Entrepreneur by Danielle Tate)Reviewer: Janice S. Garey***** 5 StarsIf you have ever contemplated starting a business, this book is packed with information to set you on the right track. Although written from a woman's point of view and directed to women, most of what's in the book will apply to men in business startup mode, too.I appreciate how the author wants to make life and work easier for others starting out so they d [...]

    24. Elegant Entrepreneur is a great book for any women who is thinking about starting a business, is part of a startup, or already owns a business. This step by step guide tells you everything you need to know about starting a business. There are dozens of real world examples in this book, which make it more realistic. Examples from women who had ideas and successes, as well as women who's ideas failed. This book can help you decide if your idea is worth the time and effort. Who will buy the product [...]

    25. This is clearly the work of a dedicated person—must I say 'woman' if the information in this volume is relevant to anyone considering building a business? There are so many books written on this topic that it's worth highlighting the Female aspect: Tate recognizes that women tend to operate more on feeling than man’s world logic. Rather than disregard our natural bend—try to make us men in skirts—she presents chapters such as: Ask the Right Questions of the Right People, and Don't Fall i [...]

    26. Copy received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book wasn't exactly what I expected, and not everything in it was relevant to me. It was still good, though! The author is so smart and she really knows what she's talking about. It has a lot of helpful tips and advice about business - from deciding if your product is a good idea to finding startup funding to marketing to hiring people.I really recommend it to any female entrepreneur, or any woman who wants to be one.

    27. Wow Danielle nails the mind-set that prospective entrepreneurs should have when determining if this life-direction is right for them. Many of her concepts ring true no matter whether you are a woman or man. In particular, "Separate yourself from your idea" and "Delegate until it hurts" are mantras to live by for all newbie 'treps.' Congrats Danielle -- your perspective and guidance is extremely well thought-out yet accessible for folks that may be uncertain about how to consider entrepreneurshi [...]

    28. An absolute must read for any woman thinking about starting her own businessis is not a dry business handbook - it's full of interesting real-world examples from both the author and other successful women who have struggled and succeeded as entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur myself - this book surprised me. It's more than a resource for beginners's also a inspiration for continuous improvement for established entrepreneurs. Whether you're about to take the leap or you did awhile ago, this book wi [...]

    29. Wealth of information for potential entrepreneurs! Although the book is written for female entrepreneurs, the simple, easy to understand language and detailed information is useful for anyone thinking about starting a business. The book takes you from first steps, including knowing when to start a business or just sell your 'great' idea, through how to fund your business, protect your product, exit opportunities and everything in between.

    30. Excellent book for first-time entrepreneurs (men too!). I mean this is as close as you're going to get to having a blueprint of what you need to do to start a revenue-generating business!I was so excited once I finished reading this book because I have a friend that's in the process of starting her first business. I was raving to her about how she needs to read this book asap. Now that it's available for purchase I may just buy it for her
