    This book is filled with bite-sized, no-nonsense, practical tips and "hacks" based on real success stories, designed for entrepreneurs who are not a white privileged man. I enjoyed the author's wit, energy and unapologetic tone. I found myself picking up this book like a bible whenever I felt demotivated with work. Highly recommended.

    "Tell everyone your idea, don’t keep to yourself. Share to gain wisdom, form partnerships, and collaborate." Nathalie presents 50 hacks for how women entrepreneurs can "leapfrog" ahead. A comprehensive guide of how women can get ahead in a world built for men. Not everything felt relevant to me, and this was very US-focused, but a good listen. Some key takeaways: - Innovate the experience of buying the product - Use tech to scale (revisit the e myth) - Never build a tech product unless you have "Tell everyone your idea, don’t keep to yourself.

A comprehensive guide of how women can get ahead in a world built for men. Not everything felt relevant to me, and this was very US-focused, but a good listen. Some key takeaways: - Innovate the experience of buying the product - Use tech to scale (revisit the e myth) - Never build a tech product unless you have to. Use a platform already in existence that’s 70%-90% of what you want, and tweak to fit your needs. - Be obsessed with two things: solving a problem, and serving the customer. - Draw your ideal day - Shift attention to the value you are creating - this is valued at x instead of how much you are worth what goal is it helping them achieve without your help and support? - Don't confuse your shopping habits with your customers. Use research to complement gut - If you exempt someone from increased rates, make them feel special/grateful - Prices: you might need to tweak where you're finding your customers - charge more means you can have a smaller customer base - Under pricing does more damage to you emotionally than your bottom line - Define success. Then build your business model around that definition. Everyone’s different. - Thinking of rejection as the norm - Answer: Why me, why now, why this, why you? (For a pitch) - Write your story in 100 words and put it where people will see it (Warby example) - Make them privileged to be part of what you're doing, love them back - Stand for something, get used to pissing people off - stir controversy - get people to have a reaction - Social media: determine what matters to your customer and serve it (80%) If you're a women entrepreneur looking to start something, I'd recommend a skim through all the hacks and reading the ones that you're more interested in in detail - good examples and case studies are included.

    If you are an entrepreneur or think you could become one, here's a new book you will love. Nathalie presents 50 hacks to jump ahead in entrepreneurship, particularly when you're not a privileged white man. Leapfrog is all about getting ahead in a system that was not necessarily designed for you to succeed. Many of her hacks put into words things I did intuitively in the early days of She's the First. I didn't fully recognize my strengths in those areas until reading this book. 10 years into entre If you are an entrepreneur or think you could become one, here's a new book you will love. Nathalie presents 50 hacks to jump ahead in entrepreneurship, particularly when you're not a privileged white man. Leapfrog is all about getting ahead in a system that was not necessarily designed for you to succeed. Many of her hacks put into words things I did intuitively in the early days of She's the First. I didn't fully recognize my strengths in those areas until reading this book. 10 years into entrepreneurship (or 20, if you count the origin as my first playground business!), I STILL found wake-up calls in Nathalie's book. A profound question she asks is: Why do you spend so much time thinking about what failure looks like? It's harder--and more important--to think about what crazy levels of success look like. What really sets this book apart from all others on the business bookshelf is REPRESENTATION. Nathalie is Latinx and cites examples of mostly non-white entrepreneurs, which is a welcome break from most of the books I've read. She writes with a race-gender-class lens that calls out how the rules of the start-up world just don't work for the majority of people with brilliant ideas and solutions. Because the hacks are in 50 digestible chapters, it's a substantial but fast read that you'll be turning back to time and again when you need a jolt of encouragement.

    What a great book! It made me want to start a business and apply all the useful, tangible advice put together by Nathalie Molina Nino (and be her friend because I loved her voice, style, and humor). Broken down into manageable chapters, the content is insightful, full of specific examples, and that beautiful combination of motivational and inspirational. The author's goal is to level the playing field for a billion women, and she finds impatience to be a quality. As a bonus, she doesn't talk abou What a great book!

The author's goal is to level the playing field for a billion women, and she finds impatience to be a quality. As a bonus, she doesn't talk about mentor networks but Mastermind groups - what's not to love? The book is easy to quote, perfect to recommend - to men and women alike, and a must-read for any woman who wants to get things done.

    Me encantó. El libro que siempre quise leer para mujeres emprendedoras. Me pude identificar con lo que plantea, sobre como muchas veces los consejos de los libros de negocios son pensados para hombres de cierta clase social y con ciertas ambiciones; y terminan siendo inútiles y poco realistas para mujeres que no fueron a grandes escuelas o que no sueñan con ser grandes ejecutivas sino triunfar a su manera y en sus propios términos. Es un libro honesto, util, motivador, divertido, inspirador. Par Me encantó. El libro que siempre quise leer para mujeres emprendedoras.

Es un libro honesto, util, motivador, divertido, inspirador. Para tener como libro de cabecera, leer y releer antes y durante la realización de cualquier emprendimiento. Me inspiró mucho para escribir mi primer libro"Osadía".

    Although targeted at those who think of themselves as entrepreneurs or aspire to be, I chose Molina Niño's Leapfrog for a national fellowship for women healthcare leaders.

The bite-sized chapters provide plenty to chew on and the connections she draws between confidence, influence, and effectiveness ar Although targeted at those who think of themselves as entrepreneurs or aspire to be, I chose Molina Niño's Leapfrog for a national fellowship for women healthcare leaders.

I've provided copies for my wife and daughter as well as the 21 new Fellows we've just inaugurated.

    I appreciated a lot of Nathalie's hacks and was lucky enough to meet her in person for her launch in DC. For the wealth of information and resources in the book, though, I did not enjoy the writing tone. It felt crass and slangy without purpose. It's great to be a hard-working, no-nonsense, lady entrepreneur, and she embodies that well, but I don't think it's necessary to swear and use such a casual tone to get that point across.

    Not just for entrepreneurs I chose Leapfrog for a women’s fellowship I facilitate, even though the fellowship is almost entirely women executives in big healthcare companies. The mindset and practical guidance here is valuable for any leader who is determined to make a big impact on her environment.

    This book provides guidance for women especially those of colour with many practical strategies in becoming an entrepreneur, raising capital and growing business. The tone is light and direct and there are many examples and references of how the different strategies have been applied. I will be referring to this often. Great book.

    Loved this practical guide for women entrepreneurs. This author is great at pushing and empowering women (especially women of color and LGBTQ+ women) to embrace their advantages, find ways to propel forward in a system that’s stacked against them, and not feel guilty about it.

    I learned so many businesses tips and new ways of seeing things. I really enjoyed how fast-paced, positive and friendly the author wrote. I also enjoyed the examples of modern, innovative businesses and how they are finding success.

    Listened while commuting. There were useful ideas, like consider what your idea of a successful life is, and to take shortcuts because that's what men do to get ahead. The author was interesting and I'm glad she exists. But listening to this made me stressed out. Listened while commuting.

    This is the only book I’ve seen on entrepreneurship written for women of color by a woman of color. Lots of high level hacks for starting or growing a business. The best part is the author’s own story of being a Latina in tech and starting her own VC firm.
