The Girl’s CEO Connection is dedicated to motivating, engaging, and equipping high school girls as entrepreneurs. At the end of February we posted the first list. All of the books we list were chosen for girls creating entrepreneurial enterprises. The list continues to be edited for all of you in high school. There are some for college women who are entrepreneurs or those on a journey to start one.

This second group of books are from accomplished female entrepreneurs, women-owned business owners, and women who have studied why these women are successful.

Cheers and until next time,
