Women around the world have responded to Cara Alwill Leybaâs Girl Code with a resounding YES. Companies like Kate Spade and Macyâs have brought her in to teach âthe Code.â Inc. magazine named Girl Code one of the âTop 9 Inspiring Books Every Female Entrepreneur Should Readâ alongside Lean In, #Girlboss, and Thrive.
A few years ago I made a crazy claim in the first edition of Girl Code: that in todayâs competitive marketplace, the fiercest thing a female entrepreneur can do is to support other women.
Something dynamic happens when women genuinely show up for each other. When we lose the facades, cut the bullsh*t, and truly have each otherâs backs. When we stop pretending everything is perfect, and show the messy, beautiful parts of ourselves and our workâwhich all look awfully similar. When we talk about our fears, our missteps, and our breakdowns. And most importantly, when we share our celebrations, our breakthroughs, and our solutions.
Iâm convinced that thereâs no reason to hoard information, connections, or insight. Wisdom is meant to be shared, so letâs start sharing what weâve learned to make each other better. Letâs start building each other up. Letâs live up to our potential and start ruling the world.
Girl Code is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, âside hustlersâ (those with a day job plus a part-time small business), and anyÂone in between. This book wonât teach you how to build a multimillion-dollar company. It wonât teach you about systems or finance. But it will teach you how to build confidence in yourself, reconnect with your âwhy,â eradicate jealousy, and ultimately learn the power of connection. Because at the end of the day, thatâs what life and business are all about.
