"We often only see the end result of a successful business yet have no idea about an entrepreneur's years of work, sweat, and tears that got them to a place of success. This book highlights the ups, downs, long roads traveled, empty bank accounts, and breaking through of barriers that were once part of the journey of some amazing business women and mothers. Being a mom isn't easy, so hearing how they juggled motherhood and growing a business will give you the inspiration to leave your excuses behind you and go after your dreams." - Joy Cho, Oh Joy
