Book Review: The Lady With Balls

This woman is a pistol! She began a business back in the 70s, when women were still fighting for acceptance in the workplace. She went all out and became an entrepreneur.

I really admire her. In a male-dominated business world, she fought hard and long and smart.

After a period of time on food stamps, as a newly divorced mom, she created a business, Vulcan Wire, selling bailing wire.

Now, you may wonder how interesting such a memoire could be, but she really has balls! Guts and determination. I couldn't believe what she did, and how she made it through these awful glass ceilings in this male world.

I ran out of library books, and I was quite eager to finish. It's a great read!

When I was an elementary principals (I was in my mid-30s) the superintendent who hired me would pick me out in principal's meetings and tell the others (mostly men) he wished they had the balls I had in dealing with difficult issues. I was secretly honoured, but publicly embarrassed. - Margy
