Author(s): Cerulo, Erica, Mazur, Claire
Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo met as undergrads at the University of Chicago and in 2010, after a decade of friendship, they founded the fashion website Of a Kind to promote emerging designers. Since then, InStyle named Of A Kind "Best of Web," and the empire has grown to include a weekly newsletter ("10 Things") and a podcast ("A Few Things"), each with a cult following--and now a book.
In Work Wife, Claire and Erica bring to light the unique power of female friendship to fuel successful businesses, drawing on their own experiences as well as the stories of other "work wives" who run their own companies, including- Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs of the popular food community site Food52, Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh of Olympic volleyball fame, and Deborah Jackson and Andrea Turner Moffitt, founders of Plum Alley, a crowdfunding platform for female entrepreneurs, and many more. They address a range of difficulties women co-founders face, such as dealing with money, being bosses, considering significant others and motherhood, structuring time, and tackling disagreements. Fun, enlightening, and informative, Work Wife is a celebration of female friendship and collaboration that proves it's possible--and profitable--to mix BFFs with business.
