Fifteen women CEOs and presidents of companies with annual revenues of $10 million or more tell how they got to the top -- on their terms. Through personal interviews and striking photographs these business leaders reveal how they broke through the gender barrier to acheive top executive positions, and how they learned to balance family needs with work responsiblities. In On Our Own Terms , these innovative women give candid, down-to-earth advice on issues ranging from employee communications to child day care. They offer useful advice on: - Career planning, - Customer service, - Growing a business, - Managing work and family life, and more. The women selected represent a cross-section of American women in ethnicity, age, geography, and business experience. On Our Own Terms explores the struggles, sacrifices, challenges and triumphs they have experienced on their way to success.
