Solo Lisa Reads: Crave Vancouver Guide, Third Edition

The world of business seems to boil down to two simple truths: first, it's tough; and second, if you're a woman in business, it can be even tougher. Good thing that resources like Crave Vancouver exist. Part of a wider social and business network that spans multiple cities, Crave Vancouver highlights the places, services and goods that discerning urban women crave, with a special emphasis on businesses founded by female entrepreneurs (or "entreprenesses," as Crave calls them). It's one part information resource, one part social network. Each year they publish a book featuring 100+ entreprenesses. I was lucky enough to attend the launch party this year and receive a complimentary copy.

The glossy publication belies a high production value. Thick paper, beautiful photography, and great copyediting mean that the Crave Vancouver Guide looks and feels like a professional high-quality book. For aspiring entreprenesses, quotes and advice from women who've accomplished their goals will provide a fantastic source of inspiration. For women who want recommendations on everything from a clothing boutique to a mortgage broker, it's a stylish directory of the best that Vancouver has to offer. If you're looking for a beautiful useful book to give to the stylish women on your list, this is it.
