In celebration of women’s history month we’re kicking off our enterprise books of the month series with solely #FemaleFounders! Have a look below and check out some inspirational, well-written stories from global founders of successful ventures.

Dear Female Founder is a collection of letters from female entrepreneurs who have made $1 billion in revenue. A great and inspirational book, we recommend this read for anyone who is struggling with motivation.

Dear Female Founder is a personal, inspirational and at times a deeply moving read. I wish it had existed when I started my own entrepreneurial journey – it would have saved me a lot of time and heartache!  Sarah Wood OBE 

I wish I had access to a resource like that when I set up my first business 15 years ago. Everyone should read it regardless of gender. – Wendy Tan White MBE

Dear Female Founder lets you learn from the experience, emotional ups and downs and the wisdom gained by those who have done it before you. The stories make it real in a way no other book has. – Gil Penchina 

A unique blend of encouragement, wisdom and practical insights, shared by remarkable female entrepreneurs. Whether you’re a budding female entrepreneur or an intrapreneur within a bigger company, the rich advice will stand you in good stead and undoubtedly inspire you. – Paul Frampton 

Dream Big Hustle Hard is penned by LSE alum Abadesi Ousunsade, a female entrepreneur that runs a social venture designed to support women looking for careers in tech. This book is perfect for women looking to work in a sector where they are unfortunately highly underrepresented!

Check out the blurb here:

Since launching her career advancement community, Hustle Crew, in autumn 2016, Abadesi Osunsade has helped thousands of 20-somethings from diverse backgrounds land jobs in tech or progress their careers. In this book she outlines how she navigated the industry with zero coding skills and won roles at major tech players including Amazon and Groupon. Each chapter contains anecdotes, activities and frameworks which will give ambitious individuals the motivation and tools they need to maximise their potential in a competitive career landscape.

Manage your Day to Day Struggling to cope with your academic commitments and your entrepreneurial activities? This book, edited by Jocelyn Glei, is designed for the busy working entrepreneur.

Check out the blurb here:

Are you over-extended, over-distracted, and overwhelmed? Do you work at a breakneck pace all day, only to find that you havent accomplished the most important things on your agenda when you leave the office?

The world has changed and the way we work has to change, too. With wisdom from 20 leading creative minds, Manage Your Day-to-Day will give you a toolkit for tackling the new challenges of a 24/7, always-on workplace.

The Accidental Entrepreneur is an older, more classic entrepreneurial advice book. We recommend this for anyone looking for a new interesting and informative book to read, particularly great for tube journeys!

Check out the blurb here:

Like many business owners, Susan-Urquart Brown never expected to end up as an entrepreneur. Launching her own business spoke to her passions, but she soon realized there was much more to being a successful business owner than she ever expected. As a seasoned businesswoman, she has spent more than 10 years building her business from the ground up.

In The Accidental Entrepreneur, she takes all the mystery out of going solo. For those who are just beginning to consider starting a business, as well as those who want to take their business to the next level, she offers advice on what works and what doesn’t.

We hope you enjoyed this month’s selections! Once you’ve had a read of them (or if you’ve read them already) let us know what you thought of them below!
