Molly Gordon’s Podcast Interview with Barbara Weaver Smith

I wanted to take the chance to share this podcast with you – in case you missed it a couple of days ago.

Interview with a Whale Hunting Woman

Last week I reviewed Barbara Weaver Smith’s book, Whale Hunting Women. Shortly afterward, I had a delightful conversation with her about how women (including self employed solo-preneurs) are uniquely qualified to seek and get business from much larger organizations.

You, lucky you, can listen in on the conversation or download the interview here (http://www.shaboominc.com/blog/downloads/whale-hunters.mp3). And for your edification, I asked Maggie to write up some of the highlights.

Maggie wrote:

  • There are lots of additional resources (free) at Barbara’s Web site, thewhalehunters.com
  • Why women are uniquely qualified to seek and get business from organizations that are up to ten times the size of their own business.
  • How to use the book to seek and get significant business (instead of just thinking about how cool it would be).
  • The most important thing to remember (that we usually forget) when it comes to dealing with fear that we can’t hold our own with the “big kids.”
  • The three core principles of Whale Hunting that women happen to rock at.
  • What the self employed woman might not realize about bureaucracy in her own business (and why it matters)
  • Why whales are scared. (!)
  • What to say when you price work by the project, not the hour.
  • The importance of collaboration.

Whale Hunting Women Virtual Book Tour – May and June 2009

Whale Hunting Women Volume I, by Dr. Barbara Weaver Smith, celebrates how women do big deals in business and community.


In May and June 2009 – Barbara Weaver Smith will tour cyber space to promote her latest book. Learn a bit more about her “Whale Hunting Process” below.

About Whale Hunting Women [Vol. 1]

Whale Hunting Women—how women do big deals in business and community. For inspiration, motivation, and direction, this book celebrates women as deal-makers and includes how to “break the minnow mindset” and how to create a fast-growth culture. It documents three cultural transformations that favor women’s leadership styles: the trend to replace competition with collaboration; the need to transform bureaucracy to entrepreneurship; and the value of perceiving a world of abundance rather than a culture of scarcity. The book offers advice on how small companies or organizations can manage their public presence to generate the whales’ confidence that they have the capabilities and professionalism to complete big deals with big customers and partners. The book incorporates a deal-maker’s journal; each chapter includes worksheets to prompt reflections and action plans.

People Who Need to Read Whale Hunting Women

  1. Women business owners—ranging from the home-based business to the very successful small to midsize business.
  2. Women executives and managers.
  3. Women “deal makers” both employees and volunteers who do deals in the education and nonprofit arenas—board members, fundraisers. Note: many women fall into at least two of these categories.

Topics That Are Discussed in Whale Hunting Women

  • Women are great whale hunters (big deal-makers)
  • Women’s talents and preferences are a perfect fit for deal-making in today’s economy
  • Women sometimes think of themselves or their enterprise as “too small” to do big deals
  • Community deals and education deals are as important and as challenging as business deals
