'My intent is to document the experiences of African business women in terms of their background, their start-up stage, their growth pattern, their challenges, the impact of choices of spouse on their business, their work-life balance, and their future plans. My vision is to create a document to inspire other women as well as celebrate the women.' Having said that, Ibukun Awosika set out to take on a number of female entrepreneurs who have succeeded in carving a niche for themselves in the business world, and profiled their stories for the benefits of other women who aspire to do same in the first volume of her book The "Girl" Entrepreneurs: Our Stories So Far... In this book, you will get to read what the motivations, the challenges, and the strategies of these women are. You will also be acquainted with how the contributions of other people, such as their spouses, parents and family, have helped towards their achievement of success.
