Too many of us feel trapped by work that keeps us from living our purpose. We fantasize about starting our own business, yet we’re warned against falling into debt, working eighty hours a week, and coping with the pressure to grow. Eco-Bags Products founder Sharon Rowe says there’s another way: go tiny.

Like a tiny house, a tiny business is built on maintaining a laser focus on what is essential by living an intentional life. As an entrepreneur and mother, Rowe is most concerned with putting family first, maintaining financial security, and doing something that makes an impact in the world. Using the success story of Eco-Bags Products, Rowe distills the step-by-step process of building a profitable, right-scaled, sustainable venture that doesn’t compromise your values. She shows you how to test your concept, manage your money and priorities, and more, while staying true to the “tiny” ethos.

I guess I was just really hoping there would be more meat to this book, but I’m also an information consumer to the max, so maybe I’m just over-read. I’m a “tiny” business owner too (although I think my companies…

Women in Business Women in business: There are three reasons why I think you should read this book:1. It’s about making a (great) living while still giving you the space to live2. It’s about learning to (and being energized by) saying “no” to what does not serve your business and your life3. It’s about growing in communityI own a small business and I am a woman. While men can also benefit from these messages as well, I find her ideas about forging a new path especially…
