Here’s what people are saying about Eat First, Cry Later and Mimi Barash Coppersmith…
“Half a century ago, Mimi established herself as a chronicler of a community’s growth and change. In spearheading progressive causes and mentoring several generations of women leaders, she has become a part of that history. Those of us who have been guided and inspired by her know that Mimi’s story is the foundation of our own.”
“I worked for Mimi for 30 years. She set goals and did whatever it took to reach them. She put her creative skills to work to create business solutions. Mimi took over a fledgling business at a time when women rarely were in charge. She succeeded because she treated vendors, clients, and employees in a firm but fair fashion. Her success motivated me. Mimi gave me the environment and direction to succeed.”
“Mimi’s always there as a resource to help lead us in the right direction for mutual benefit. You’ll enjoy reading many personal anecdotes that help define the depth of her involvement and influence in our community. I depend on her wisdom.”
