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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
