LOCAL business woman Pauline Bright is set to feature in Business Women Australia’s upcoming book Extraordinary Businesswomen.
The Bright Business owner and managing director is an award-winning business owner, presenter, speaker, writer and business coach who has coached and trained hundreds of business owners over the last 12 years.
The book features the unique stories of 34 Australian businesswomen with the forward written by Boost Juice entrepreneur and resident shark on TV’s Shark Tank, Janine Allis.
“I want to do business with people who SOAR – people who look for the Solutions, take Ownership and Accountability for what they do and have the attitude that they are Responsible for the outcome,” Ms Allis said.
“These people are those who can succeed.
All the women in this book are women who SOAR”
The book a range of topics from women who have overcome adversity, stories of success and inspiration and stories that are ready to help guide other women in business.
Almost every career is covered, along with some surprising ones.
“After 35 years running my own businesses, I feel I have some great insight and stories to share”, Ms Bright said.
“It’s about giving back and sharing my story and showing that anyone can run a business and achieve success with the right support and guidance.
“As a business coach for the past 12 years, I’ve watched and helped a lot of extraordinary women create and run their own businesses.
They may not think they’ve done anything outstanding, but they have.
“Everyone has a story of how they got to where they are and where they’re headed next.
It’s important to hear these stories to encourage and inspire others to take that leap of faith as well.
“Being interviewed for the book was a process in itself and made me stop and think about what I have done over the past 35 years in business.
“I have seen much change over the years. I started as graphic designer, where the entire graphic design and print industry was very male-dominated and unionised.
“Now, no one blinks an eye at a female graphic designer – as it should be”.
Extraordinary Women will be launched on International Women’s Day on March 8 at Rambla on Swan, South Perth.
