Letting Go

“Susan Sokol Blosser is one of the most visionary, focused decision makers of the wine industry. Her entrepreneurial business sense blazed the trail not only for her family but also for women in future business ventures.”  Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, Columbia Sportswear.

“With candor, Susan Sokol Blosser offers lessons for entrepreneurs, visionaries and parents. A thoughtful, brave, and compelling read.”  Dr. Pat Frishkoff, Founder & Director Emerita, Austin Family Business Program, Oregon State University.

Once you get to the top, how do you know when it’s time to let go?

At the height of her career, after building and leading one of the most innovative wineries in America, Susan Sokol Blosser made an extraordinary decision — to step away from the work she loved and transition control of the winery to her children. Letting Go is the engaging account of how she made that decision, the surprising challenges she faced, the unanticipated journey that ensued and the good life that followed.

Letting Go speaks to universal themes: transforming family dynamics as the older generation cedes power to the younger; thriving as a woman in an era of changing gender roles; facing aging and staying vital while no longer climbing the career ladder.

Contrary to the “having it all” mind set, Sokol Blosser’s story proves that Letting Go can be the most fulfilling life choice.
