When Susan Axelrod sta…more
When Susan Axelrod started selling quiches from her kitchen in 1973, she was armed with little but a lifelong passion for food. She had no inkling that the tiny, haphazard enterprise would, over four decades later, be competing with the giants of the industry. But as Susan got Love and Quiches off the ground, she discovered that her passion was propelling her ever forward--and into the role of full-fledged entrepreneur.
In With Love and Quiches, Susan brings her journey to life, imparting decades worth of life and business lessons to readers. She describes the hilarious chaos of the early days, rife with cluelessness and novice mistakes (giving readers a clear picture of what not to do). But she also explains the steady expansion of Love and Quiches--as it moved from selling a few quiches and desserts to New York area restaurants to shipping its products around the world; as it went from a loose and wasteful operation to a lean, effective, multimillion-dollar powerhouse; and as her husband, son, and daughter joined her one by one as leaders in the company.
Brimming with colorful anecdotes, a deep love of good food, and the incisive wit and wisdom of its author, With Love and Quiches pulls back the curtain on a business success story--from baking sheets to balance sheets. It's a story full of laughter, heartache, and hard-won knowledge that will inspire anyone with a good idea, a bit of ambition, at least a few resources and a healthy dose of passion. [close]

A hands-on and usable guide to making the first 90 days of your mentoring relationship a success.
In "Starting Strong," mentoring experts Lois J. Zachary and Lory A. Fischler weave a compelling tale that exemplifies the concepts, highlights the dynamics, and outlines the issues involved in mentoring relationships. The authors use the form of a fable to tell the story of a budding mentoring relationship filled with possibilities, problems, and triumphs. The story of Cynthia, a seasoned professional, and her new mentee Rafa, brings to life Zachary and Fischler's wealth of mentoring suggestions and best practices and each episode of the fable is accompanied by reflection questions, key learnings, and strategies that readers can apply to their own mentoring relationships. The authors include a conversation playbook that guides mentors and mentees through six essential conversations that will help them establish a strong mentoring connection, and keep it moving forward.
As organizations face the transition of departing Boomers and arriving Millennials, "Starting Strong" offers a hands-on and readable guide to create effective mentoring relationships that will ensure the success of that transition. The book:
- Covers the key components of a successful mentoring relationship including building trust, establishing a comfort zone (and then having the courage to leave it), holding productive meetings, dealing with power dynamics, setting goals, and keeping momentum going
- Shows how to avoid common pitfalls and overcome mentoring obstacles
- Applies to any organizational or institutional setting
"Starting Strong" is more than an engaging story of mentorship, it's a vital resource for understanding how to implement and sustain a meaningful mentoring relationship. [close]
