How women can "lean in" to entrepreneurship to create the life they want!
Claudia Reuter left a promising corporate career to raise her two young children but realized, when re-entering the workforce, that the gap in her resume looked like a gap in ambition-not a purposeful plan. Instead of leaning into a corporate career and fighting the structures and systems designed by and for men decades ago, or leaning out and giving up income, Claudia took a different path. That decision ultimately led to success in the corporate world and at home.
In Yes, You Can Do This!, Claudia shares her own reasons for starting a business and makes a call to action for women to consider entrepreneurship so that they can create businesses with the rules they want and change the playing field for others, making a significant impact in the world. More than a "how-to book" on building a business, Yes, You Can Do This! provides clear examples and practical resources to help others create the life they want through entrepreneurship.
In Yes, You Can Do This!, you'll learn:
How to develop and share your vision
How to deal with stereotypes and unconscious bias
How to leverage perceived weaknesses and turn them into strengths
How to balance life at high speeds and avoid burnout
How to cultivate the confidence to move from idea to creating a company with the culture and rules you want
Claudia provides women with an electrifying third career option: it's not just "lean in" or "lean out," but startup and change the playing field for others in the process.
