you're not alone. Entrepreneur, bestselling author, and business coach Jadah Sellner knows what it's like to be burned out, in debt, and just barely holding on to a new business. In the process of launching and building multiple companies, she realized today's aggressive 24/7 hustle culture wasn't working for her--or for her clients.
In She Builds, Sellner shares a new entrepreneurial model for women, centered on sustainable leadership--a practical framework they can use to create a business on their own terms, prioritize their well-being, and break free from the toxic culture that leads to burnout.
She Builds rests on four essential principles of L.O.V.E.:
LEAD: Define "enough" and surround yourself with the support you need to build a business that lasts.
OPTIMIZE: Learn tangible strategies for focusing on what matters to help you and your business thrive.
VISUALIZE: Create a clear yet flexible twelve-month road map that turns your dreams into reality.
EXPAND: Develop a solid foundation for growth and longevity without losing yourself in the process.
Stepping back isn't a failure; it's a strategy. Sellner reminds us that we need to lead with love in life and business, starting with ourselves and moving outward to our families, our teams, our communities, and the customers we serve. Filled with inspiring personal stories, case studies, interactive exercises, and real-world advice, She Builds will help you grow your business and have time to enjoy your life, too.

Sellner's style of life and work appeals, and readers will be convinced." -- Booklist
