Want to start a new business? Have you ever wondered about the challenges and problems you might face with your business endeavors? If you seek the answers to these questions, grab yourself a copy of Lisa D. Foster's Bag Lady -- a tell-all memoir where she recounts her own experiences after starting a business for a greener world to try to change the way America shops. After discovering reusable bags on a trip to Australia in 2005, Lisa delved deeper into the subject, and she learned that a vast majority of plastic bags aren't recycled. She started making a business plan to sell eco-friendly bags, which would act as an environment-friendly substitute for paper or plastic. After a stellar start, eventually, her numbers trended downward. Heeding the advice of her friends, she worked on building her brand.
Bag Lady is an informative and motivational tale that anyone who is thinking about starting their own business should look at. Author Lisa D. Foster goes through every part of the process of creating a new business and its unexpected problems using her own real-life anecdotes while running her business. This book is about how a high school English teacher transformed herself into an eco-friendly entrepreneur to change the fundamental question at grocery stores across America, "Paper or plastic bags?" Lisa's story perfectly demonstrates how with a resolute purpose and strong will, a person can push their potential to their limits and overcome the biggest odds to realize their vision. An inspiring memoir that I highly recommend.
