Capitalize on Your Success: The Ultimate Guide to Getting the Money, Growing the Business, and Doing the Deal
Julie Garella

Growing a business you can sell, putting a deal together to buy another company, or taking on outside capital to foster growth all require a certain know-how in terms of language, preparation, and process. Rarely do business owners use the resources and strategies that have been tried and tested by major companies and brands. Instead, most business owners choose to bootstrap, hoping their company can keep up by growing organically, and forge ahead without thinking about how to make their single biggest asset—their company—worth the most possible.

In Capitalize on Your Success, investment banker Julie Garella demystifies Wall Street and the capital markets, offering straightforward advice and answers in place of incomprehensible business jargon and lofty financial theories. With her decades of experience working with closely held companies, Garella creates a unique, definitive guide for all business owners looking for step-by-step guidance and clearly focused strategies.

Tough Choices
Carly Fiorina

The Question the Wall Street Journal asked on May 24, 2006 was,
“So, was Carly right after all?”

After following the business media reports on the history and current state of HP and reading Carly Fiorina’s “Tough Choices,” the answer is a resounding YES YES YES.
The truth is that Carly led HP through major internal changes, the worst technology slump in decades and the most controversial (and ultimately the most successful) merger in high-tech history in a 5-1/2 year period. Just as the company was about to turn around, she was unexpectedly fired.

“Tough Choices” is not only her compelling story, but it is loaded with business insights that all business leaders can learn from – no matter what the size of their business.

It is ‘must’ reading for every woman - whether a business owner, business leader, business executive or wannabe. It is informative, insightful, intriguing, inspiring and
Admirable. It was one of the few business books, that I couldn’t put down, even though
I knew how the story ended. Read it and give yourself the gift of Carly – she will change your life. (Reviewed by Leslie Grossman)
