Book reading and discussion
Too many of us feel trapped by work that keeps us from living our purpose. We fantasize about starting our own business, yet we’re warned against falling into debt, working 80 hours a week, and coping with the pressure to grow.
Eco-Bags Products founder Sharon Rowe says there is another way to go: Go tiny.
Like a tiny house, a tiny business is built on maintaining a laser focus on what is essential by living an intentional life. As an entrepreneur and mother, Sharon is most concerned with putting family first, maintaining financial security, and doing something that makes an impact on the world.
Using the success story of Eco-Bags Products, Sharon distills a step-by-step process, of building a profitable, right-scaled, sustainable venture that doesn’t compromise your values. She shows you how to test your concept, manage your money and priorities, and more, while staying true to the “tiny” ethos.
She’ll read from her new book The Magic of Tiny Business: You Don’t Have to Go Big to Make a Great Living (Berrett-Koehler Publishers).
Founder and CEO of Eco-Bags Products, which grew to become a $2.2 million business. ECOBAGS® is the original reusable bag brand, sold worldwide and a certified B Corp recognized as “Best for The World” for social and environmental commitments and standards.
Featured in Time magazine and in the indie film Bag It, Sharon has been the recipient of several awards, including the Business Council of Westchester’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Enterprising Woman of the Year, and the Women’s Enterprise Development Center’s Lilian Vernon Award.
