What’s EntreWomen about?

10 Jun

There are two types of women entrepreneurs.  The first group, also the most rare, contains those who just seem
to have been born to create opportunities for themselves- it’s either intrinsic to their nature, or they are naturally very driven and the idea of working for someone else was never an option or never entered their minds.  The second group, probably the more typical crowd, contains those of us who began our working lives in more traditional roles, acquiring skills or an education in anticipation of fulfilling a certain niche in the working world.  Then, as our lives change, families grow, and the economy shifts, what once seemed like a great idea doesn’t look so wonderful anymore, and those “specialized skills” we were coached to develop don’t translate very easily into other careers.  We begin to dream of creating opportunities for ourselves, whether for more flexibility of time, a larger income, or the opportunity to stay home with young children.  For many, all three factors are important.

Read quality, encouraging books on business and entrepreneurialism and you will find a common theme for those wishing to start out in an entrepreneurial endeavor: to figure out where you want to go and how to get
there, study others who have already made it work.   In EntreWomen, we will meet and explore the thoughts and efforts of women already making it work.  What inspired them to create their business or product?  What keeps them motivated?  How do they make it work?

Because if you don’t bring a map, you will never find your destination.
