It can happen to any business owner: You get bogged down in exasperating details or discouraged by a setback, and suddenly you’re wondering, “Why am I doing this?” What you need is a bit of inspiration — something you can find in abundance in Grace Bonney’s new hardcover offering, “In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs” (Artisan, October 2016). Bonney, the creator of the website Design*Sponge, tapped her network of makers, artists and entrepreneurs to assemble a wealth of advice and inspiration for anyone struggling to bring her vision to fruition.
While a handful of names may be recognizable, the vast majority of the women Bonney profiles work outside the glare of publicity. There are chefs, writers, performers, poets and designers of every stripe. Given Bonney’s interest in interior design, it’s no surprise that each profile is accompanied by photos of the subject’s working space that are visually inspirational.
If you’re looking for a refreshing breath of inspiration to put renewed energy into your business, give Bonney’s book a try.
Quotes from Hana Getachew, Rebecca Wood, Veronica Corzo-Duchardt and Karen Young originally appear in Grace Bonne’s book “In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs” (Artisan, October 2016).
