The Business Birthing Handbook
For those wanting to birth a new business, or a new way of being in business.
Using pregnancy as an analogy, I explore the four sequential stages of creative gestation—Inspiration, Visioning, Engineering, and Actualization. For each phase, I outline the primary metaphors and themes, drawing on the 12 Principles for Prototyping a Feminist Business. Corresponding questions for journaling and contemplation help you deepen your engagement, imagine possibilities, become more embodied, and move through fears. I also include book recommendations and resource referrals.
A psychic once told me that I had been a midwife in multiple past lives. While I'm not interested in delivering babies this go around, I am getting immense pleasure helping people birth feminist businesses. I hope this handbook offers relief and reassurance on your gestational journeys.
