Here’s one of the best books I ever received as a present: In the Company of Women. Written by Design*Sponge creator Grace Bonney, it is full of examples of wonderful women who overcame adversity and generally anything life throws at you and made it into the world of business and entrepreneurship. Some of their thoughts are so inspiring, and would love to share them with you in the pictures below.


Jodie Patterson’s words of wisdom.

If you’d like to have the book yourselves, go ahead and buy it from here. Or elsewhere, whatever you prefer. 🙂

Happy holidays!


PS. Bonus track: an interview with Grace on Design Matters where she talks about her book but also her blog Design*Sponge and life in general.
