Surrounded by Awesome Women: Unlocking a New Model of Women’s Success in Business and Entrepreneurship for the Next Decade

Through the overarching lens of Sheila Long’s incubator, MalamaDoe, Surrounded by Awesome Women celebrates women who successfully navigate professional barriers and surpass milestones by starting and growing businesses. Her book outlines a roadmap for startup businesses, primarily drawn from Long’s research working with female entrepreneurs.

This book aims to inspire women to work towards creating structural change when navigating professional barriers. Long challenges readers to face fears, accept realities, build brands, and scale businesses.


Our Take:

Long encapsulates the power of her book with the careful selection of a quote from Malala Yousafzai:

“I raise up my voice—not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.”

Written to unlock the potential of entrepreneurial women, Long ended up writing a book that brings value to all (not just women). Surrounded by Awesome Women will help you create empowering workspaces, pointing to lessons and experiences from over forty inspiring women.
