• Women Launch New Businesses at Twice the Rate as Men

    This reflects women of all ages but, even so, women entrepreneurs continue to lead  the Boomer pack.

    Not a shabby statistic to note on this auspicious, 100th anniversary of “International Women’s Day.”

    In the US, March is “Women’s History Month,” but that did not become official until 1987. Even worse, this celebration began as just a week in 1978. For a country that espouses forward thinking, it seems to have taken an inordinate amount of time to rally behind our international counterparts.

    Nonetheless, we are happy to have caught up, and would like to add our support with this great Entrepreneurial To-Do List from Brad Sugars at Entrepreneur.com. We recommend you check off each of his seven key steps before you wade into the entrepreneurial waters. One essential step we love is know your numbers and theirs!

    Last but not least, as Sugars says in the conclusion of his article: “There are few truly new things under the sun. So build on the intellectual capital of those who have gone before you.”

    A nod to women’s history, perhaps???
