RINGWOOD, N.J. — Borough resident Beth Donalds is sharing a piece of writing in a collection of short stories from 13 female business owners called “Redefining Success: “Redefining Success: Real Women, Real Stories, Real Inspiration.”

Due out on Oct. 1, the book is the brainchild of Closter resident Ayelet Nathaniel, whose children's book "Sparkly Me" made her the best-selling author on Amazon for 16 straight weeks.

“The idea of the book is to inspire and support women,” said Nathaniel, an Israeli immigrant and mother of three. “It’s to make them feel like they’re not alone in this world and they can go on and do whatever they want.”

Donalds is a veteran finance and operations professional and founder and principal of Business Doctor of North Jersey, LLC.

She provides companies large and small with the know-how and hands-on support they need to grow their businesses by improving day-to-day operations, shaping sales and marketing strategies, and implementing tactical plans that deliver results.

She and the other New Jersey, New York, California and Connecticut women in the book all share personal stories of “personal triumph, moments of grief, support, growth and ultimately, success,” Nathaniel said on her website.

“Owning a business is very difficult and many women feel very isolated,” she said. “At some point they decided not to pursue their dream because it’s just so hard.

“Each one of us comes from different backgrounds and experience difficulties but this book shows that it doesn’t matter where you come from.”
