More Money for Shoes is an innovative, full-colour, illustrated business book written for women in business (or women thinking about starting a business). It’s designed to show you that building a successful and profitable business can be just like shaping a fabulous wardrobe.
The book couples business essentials with relatable fashion analogies, navigating the often intimidating world of business ownership. From composing goals and plans, to dealing with the often feared critical numbers, in it I’ll show you how to organise, throw out, build and create a business that will work for you. In the Business Basics section of the book I compare business concepts to wardrobe essentials to explain difficult business concepts. So White Shirts and Systems, the Little Black Dress and Cashflow or Jeans and Pricing. It’s a unique and innovative approach that demystifies the sometimes scary world of business.
So if you’re a woman in business, thinking about starting a business, you’re doing the accounts and running the office of your husband’s business and find yourself in business by default or you simply love the idea of one day maybe having a go… this book is for you.
I believe, that like a great cocktail ring or a killer pair of heels, More Money For Shoes is the secret weapon that will take you from being ordinary (and perhaps confused) to extraordinary in the business world.
But don’t just take my word for it:
“Any resource that encourages women to be financially brave and independent gets a massive tick from me. Melissa has penned a great book, and has woven in her personal experiences and anecdotes beautifully. Bravo!”
Emma Isaacs – CEO, Business Chicks
“This book is a refreshing and vivid exploration of the journey and opportunities available to women in business. Melissa manages to create a light-hearted guide for any woman already in the corporate world, or looking to embark on the journey. I particularly like the way she has identified the synergies between how we operate and see the world as women in day-to-day life, and how these principles can translate into the workplace. Anyone who can liken wearing Spanx to a business plan definitely has a gift for the written word. Certainly not another stuffy business book.”
