Discover Your Own Path
With FLIGHT CLUB
Looking to launch a business and be your own boss and make money and have more flexibility on your hands?
Grab this book by Felena Hanson as your daily companion – to learn and live through what other woman-entrepreneur has already done.
Women are more entrepreneurial by the year. From 2007 to 2012 alone there was a 30 percent jump in women business owners, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and the trend continues to rise.
Entrepreneur, speaker and author Felena Hanson started her first business selling peacock feathers when she was only eight years old. Now, the founder of Hera Hub, a coworking space designed specifically to help women entrepreneurs thrive, has literally written the book on women starting businesses.
Flight Club – Rebel, Reinvent, and Thrive: How to Launch Your Dream Business, is a combination of Hanson’s own inspiring story and a how-to guide for what she calls “leaning out.” It is an encouragement for women to leave the corporate world if it is not serving them and launch their dream business.
The book also features the journeys and advice of six courageous female entrepreneurs: Debby Eubank, Linda O’Keefe, Lorin Beller, Sara Clark-Williams, Deirdre Maloney, and MaryCay Durrant. Each shares an exercise to help women craft their own flight path. For anyone who is afraid to “take the leap,” Flight Club gives readers a practical guide to take the steps to freedom and entrepreneurship.
“This book is for anyone who is tired of building someone else’s dream and wants to pursue a passion as a career. I wanted to give women the tools to take more control of their time and their lives, and show them they don’t have to do it alone,” says Felena Hanson.
Flight Club Reveals:
- Hanson’s personal journey from rebellion to reinvention to liberation
- Inspiration from successful women entrepreneurs
- Advice for readers to identify passions and strengths
- Encouragement on how to get past the fear of launching your own business
- Specific steps to get started
And much more!

Here’s an excerpt from the book talking about FEAR.
Both boys and girls are taught from an early age to “share,” but girls especially are taught to “be polite,” “put others first,” and to “not be selfish.” Many of us also saw our mothers putting others first and essentially “doing it all.” To avoid being judged as some- one who “can’t do it all,” we do it all, trying to prove that we aren’t selfish.
We tell ourselves, “I have to make sure the dog is walked, my elderly neighbor is fine, and the dishes are washed and put away before I can sit down. I can’t take a nap because I have to fold the laundry, pay the bills, and then run six miles to keep myself in shape. If I spend too much time working on the kids’ homework with them (after chauffeuring them around all afternoon) and don’t have a three-course meal ready and a perfectly clean house, what would my mother-in-law think?”
In many ways, we feel good about all of the sacrifices we’re making in the name of serving everyone else, and our guilt about having our own needs and desires is made less intense for a moment. Even worse, some of us don’t have the self-love to believe we are important enough to let others know about “our needs”, so we continue to put ourselves last.
Here, Felena Hanson talks about a special mindset
and transitioning from an employee to entrepreneur.
