Life in the Driver’s Seat: Women With Drive & Beyond
The road of the entrepreneur is a bumpy one. Full of zigs and zags, detours and dead ends, building something from scratch takes someone with drive. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a friend along the way? …Someone who had been where you are?
Life in the Driver’s Seat: Women With Drive and Beyond is a slim volume filled with bite-sized wisdom you can fit in your pocket, and read whenever you need a bit of encouragement. Author Molly Cantrell-Kraig shares stories ranging from her childhood in Iowa to her starting over when she launched WWDF in Chicago at the age of 45. You’ll see how she went from being a single mom on welfare to being featured as one of the CNN 10 Visionary Women. You’ll also find Journaling Prompts to help you discover your inner compass along the way. UK author and success coach Ethan Michael Carter calls LiTDS, “Informative, combined with a style that’s both fun and easy to digest. … I think the British technical term would be ‘no fluff, and all business, luv!’”
This book will help anyone who’s starting something new: moms, those embarking on an encore career, seekers of all stripes. With Foreword by Deb Mills-Scofield, Harvard Business Review.

Are you an entrepreneur? I like to think of myself as being one since I’m a blogger. Blogging is more than just typing on a website. There is a lot of behind the scenes things that go on that most don’t see and even realize that go on.
It’s not an easy path to follow. There are highs and lows, sweat and tears,sometimes literally! It’s good to remember that there are people that have been there before you. With hard work and determination you can reach your goals.
I loved reading about Molly’s history. The book is a quick read and has journal-ling prompts at the end of each chapter for you to use. This helps you to implement some tools and to know that your goals can be reached no matter what your background is.
