The groundbreaking book that gives every woman the practical skills they need to begin Playing Big.

9780091954369

Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result.

Many women are aware of the changes they need to make to be more successful, but they don’t know how to become that more confident woman they’d like to be. Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women trust their instincts; identify and pursue their callings; become their own mentor; and take bold action to make their ideas a reality.

Not everyone wants to be a CEO, but every woman – whether a graduate, manager, volunteer, creative, stay-at-home mum or an entrepreneur – aspires to something: more influence at work or fulfilment at home; more opportunities to share their voice; more certainty in their vision. Tara has already helped thousands of women across the world to play bigger according to what ‘playing big’ truly means to them. And when women play big, we make things happen.

Get That Feeling by Ian Fuhr

Ian Fuhr - Get That Feeling LR

Ian Fuhr’s fascinating story of serial entrepreneurship is not only about a modest man making it big; it offers valuable insights into a business triumph that has its roots in understanding cultural differences and niche markets.

When Ian started out as a businessman 30 years ago, the secret of his success was already cemented in two traits – humility and a desire to break the rules. A spirit of fearlessness, fun, honesty and respect has underscored his every venture, which spans the music industry, discount department stores, a labour relations consultancy and, eventually, South Africa’s biggest beauty chain, Sorbet. In this book he shares the principles that have guided him over the years and takes the reader through the arduous but fulfilling process of building a pioneering brand.

By emphasising customer service and putting people before profit, his vision holds valuable lessons for entrepreneurs who are keen to make a sustainable contribution to South Africa’s economy.
