Default Re: What are the qualities needed to succeed as an entrepreneur? Women and men respond....

It sounds like a good thing.... :)

I'm certainly learning a lot about this issue in a short time.... I guess it makes sense that men and women would have different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to business....

I'm definitely going to be looking into this issue more as well.... :)

That sounds like a wonderful goal.... :)

I think women have their own strengths too, different from men's strengths.... I think it is wise for women to use their strengths, which women are already doing....

Here's another interesting snippet I found, from a web page about women and business in Norway....

Surveys show that fewer women's businesses fail, as they tend to start smaller and build them up more gradually.

(From here....)

It'd be interesting to find some more precise statistics (I haven't found any yet)....

Julie, please do share it, I'd be fascinated in learning more... :)
