Women Entrepreneurs Programmed Differently Than Men

Face it: men don't like to ask for directions. They would rather ask for input than forced to seek help.

Women, on the other hand, do like to ask for directions, and in the case of the entrepreneur, are not hesitant to seek advice from other self-starters to find the path that lies ahead.

A new study of female entrepreneurs from the National Foundation for Women Business Owners reported that 42 percent regularly talk with one another, 30 percent talk with financial advisers and 24 percent with legal advisers.

Although certainly not earth-shattering news, this does indicate that women are, indeed, programmed differently then men.
