The Unfiltered Lessons of a Female Entrepreneur
By Victoria Montgomery Brown
HarperCollins Leadership (2020)
A Good Morning America Fall 2020 “must-read”
With women leading only twenty-four Fortune 500 companies, female founders receiving only 2.2 percent of US venture capital, and the continued presence of sexual harassment and double standards, the gender gap continues to hinder the advancement of women in the professional world. In Digital Goddess, Montgomery-Brown, founder of Big Think, shares a story for entrepreneurial women at any stage of life who want to know what it actually takes to build a business in a world that’s not always fair, predictable, or politically correct.
Putting together and selling a book requires expertise, determination, and chutzpah. I was lucky to be surrounded by a truly excellent team, including Ellen Daly, who worked with me and coached me thoughout to create cohesion and flow in the stories and lessons.

Funny, fearless, and sometimes raw, Victoria Montgomery Brown’s book doesn’t pull any punches as she details the successes and setbacks of being a female entrepreneur.
