When Erica Cerulo & Claire Mazur met in college in 2002, they bonded instantly. Fast-forward to 2010, when they founded the popular fashion & design website Of a Kind. In their first book, Cerulo & Mazur 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 thriving “work wives,” they highlight the ways in which vulnerability, openness, & compassion—qualities central to so many women’s relationships—lend themselves to professional accomplishment and innovation.
By exploring topics such as setting expectations, defining roles, dividing responsibility, dealing with finances, & addressing disputes, they deftly demonstrate how female friendships produce empowering business partnerships... This insightful, engaging work is an essential guidebook for friends considering a business collaboration.”—Library Journal
