Self-Made: Build a Big Life from a Small Business

AUTHOR: Olivia Carr

Rewrite your narrative and create a legacy by building a business, your way

From Olivia Carr, founder of Shhh Silk, Self-Made: Build a Big Life from a Small Business is an inspirational and practical guide that will empower you to grow a profitable, successful business, no matter your stage of life. A mother at a young age, and without formal qualifications, in her twenties Olivia found herself struggling with climbing debt. Self-Made is the story of how she turned her life around in her thirties and founded Shhh Silk: a multi-million-dollar brand loved by women globally. But more than that, Self-Made is a blueprint that will show you how you can do it too.

In Self-Made, Olivia candidly shares her years of hard-won business know-how. You’ll benefit from strategies she developed to stay positive and achieve success, even when the odds are stacked against you. Whatever your industry — ecommerce, bricks and mortar, or side hustle — this is a handbook for taking control of your business and your life. Through practical exercises and step-by-step action plans, you’ll learn how to:

    Embrace the 6 key traits of a successful entrepreneur
    Develop a money-making mindset and get to grips with the realities of cash flow and profitability
    Grow your business, grow your team, and scale up sustainably — even in uncertain times
    Create an engaging brand story, with PR strategies for building your clients, using influencer marketing, and going viral
    Balance the challenges of leadership with your own personal growth and wellbeing

Self-Made reveals what it takes to build a sustainable, profit-generating business — and the steps you can take to face uncertainty, thrive despite adversity, and realise your dreams. This book will inspire and empower you to overcome setbacks, build your resilience, and use what you have to create the life you really want.
