Smooth Failing

    SBE Council advisory board member Barbara Weltman has published Smooth Failing, a new book that shares how entrepreneurs have dealt with and learned from failure.

    Weltman’s new book “seeks to save many readers from similar disasters – while empowering those who are learning from failures and adversity to bounce back stronger and wiser on the often rocky road to success.”  The book includes extensive interviews with entrepreneurs that have encountered failures and failed ventures.   

    SBE Council president and CEO Karen   Kerrigan is interviewed in one of the chapters.

The eBook, which can be found here on, is available in two formats.   The standard edition, as well as the “Living Edition,” which will add new chapters centered around new stories, and the lessons learned as a result. This Living Edition allows people to submit requests for specific examples or entrepreneurs and business leaders to be considered to feature in the book, and the additional chapters will come at no extra cost. The requests will dictate how many chapters will be added.

 This is a unique chance to gain access to a book by the prolific, best-selling author of over a dozen books on how to do things right in business, before it is officially released in early September.

 Congratulations Barbara, on publishing this compelling and unique new book!
