The Super Women of Lancashire is a fantastic collection of stories by 26 ordinary women who chose entrepreneurship, looking at what it’s really like to juggle business and all the other responsibilities in life.
Their stories are educational and inspirational. This is a must for any woman thinking of setting up a business, and for people running business education training.

This is a great read. I think it really shows how women can get on in the business world and how bringing up families does not have to be a barrier to starting or progressing a business. You will find inspirational stories in here, I particularly like the Pampered Chef lady called Amanda, as her story is very similar to mine.

I enjoyed reading these inspiring stories of so many entrepreneurial women in Lancaster. Its a great source of inspiration to see many of them operate from home offices and manage families as well.
Being an Entrepreneur based in Lancaster I would recommend it to the local entrepreneurs. These ladies are surely here, in Steve Jobs’ words “To create a dent in the world”.
Wishing them all the best.

The best way of finding out how to do anything is to get it from the horse’s mouth. Anyone thinking of starting their own business will find plenty of information, tips and advice coming straight from these Superwomen of Lancashire, who’ve all been there and done just that. Read it and be inspired.

I made the mistake of reading the other reviews before posting mine and they all used my word – INSPIRATIONAL!
I now feel like I can’t use it, so how about motivating, encouraging, thought-provoking, and visionary?
As a young female in a senior manager position I am fortunate enough to have a lot of autonomy in my business and the ability to make things happen without the risks involved with having your own business – I love my job but this book made me think that if I ever wanted to set up on my own I could do it. There may be blood, sweat and tears but they’d be worth it!
I also discovered as I went through that I already follow many of these wonderful ladies on Twitter – the easiest way nowadays to interact and engage with people. Reading this book gave me further insight in to their background and lives.
Would definitely recommend it to people of all ages who are considering their own business or who like to read about other people’s success. It’s written by women but could be equally as beneficial to a man.
I wish all of the ladies in the book – especially Jane who brought it all together – every success in the future.

A collection of personal experiences from women who have set up their own businesses in Lancashire in the last few years.
Well worth a read to gain inspiration if you’re not sure whether to take the plunge yourself.

This collection of stories about women in business provides a fascinating insight into what it takes for female business owners to start up and succeed in business.
I was struck by the diversity of challenges and tasks, both in their business and home life, that these women have to deal with.
Jane should be congratulated for compiling such an excellent insight into the world of the Super Women of Lancashire.
Tracy Irwin (via Amazon.co.uk) –
I would recommend this product to anyone in business looking for inspiration to know that it is possible to run a successful business and be a mother/wife/daughter at the same time, to know that you are not on your own in juggling business and personal issues.
The women in this book are a real credit to themselves and their peers.
An easy and well wrote read.
J. Woudberg (via Amazon.co.uk) –
Wonderful to read these stories of Lancashire SuperWomen and their journeys into business. Inspirational for us all to read man or woman – the stories are personal and conversational which makes them easy to read – you feel part of the conversation – These women are making their own way in a tough world and we can all learn something from their tenacity and dedication – buy it – it’s a bargain!
Richard Denny (via Amazon.co.uk) –
A charming book with some great stories that should encourage many other women to have a go. Jane’s own story is truly one to inspire and the idea of putting this collection together deserves a big thank-you from all would be Super Women.

A delightful, easy to read and digest book full of truly inspring women. Who wouldn’t feel the urge to follow the example of these warm, creative and talented Superwomen. Their stories remind us that we all have talents we undervalue or hide from ourselves!
Another excellent book from Jane Binnion.

I am so happy and delighted to have been included in this exciting book. I have enjoyed reading everyone elses stories and I am so honoured to be amongst such wonderful ladies. This book is a must read for all ladies who want to get into a founding a business of their own. Use it for tips, inspiration, or simply a good read about how ordinary women became Superwomen!

This is a lovely idea to celebrate Lancashire women and share their stories. I think this is a great gift for any woman thinking of starting her own business or following her dream. Candid and honest stories from women who’ve been there. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and was over the moon to be featured alongside so many ‘SuperWomen’ – so get your ‘super’ costume ready and start that business!
Denise Almond (via Amazon.co.uk) –
Thanks to Jane Binnion for bringing a few of the local lady entrepreneurs stories to life.
These short introductions are well worth the read to show how these ladies chose a route
that works for them – and hopefully inspire people who find themselves in similar positions today.
You never know unless you try?
Good luck to each and everyone of them.
Amanda Green (via Amazon.co.uk) –
It is a real honour to be featured in this book alongside some very inspirational local women who have overcome various challenges and worked their passion to develop successful businesses.
There are some really golden nuggets of info in here that come from the heart. It’s quick and easy to read so you can pep yourself up at any time on your journey.
I feel the most important part of running your own business is to always find the fun in what you do. If you don’t enjoy working your business, nobody is else is going to want to get involved.
Never give up, make the right changes and keep on top of your game by reading motivational books!
I need to work on the grammar and typing though….see…always rushing lol!
