Shared Leadership for the Future
Every entrepreneur starts out with what she considers a dynamite idea for a new business. She asks family and friends what they think of the concept and everyone responds with "You go girl!" Her enthusiasm inspires others to support her dream and often invest in the plan and during the startup phase everything and everyone is falling into place. It's as if all the planets have aligned at exactly the right time and the business launches successfully. Customers are buying and the entrepreneur has proven the need for the business.
Women entrepreneurs do not need to watch television or listen to the radio to understand that there is a debt crisis because they have always been more likely to fund their businesses with credit cards than men. Access to capital for women entrepreneurs hasn't improved much since it was the headline around the country when women began starting more businesses than men in the late 1990s.Today, however, entrepreneurs of both genders watch in amazement as the government tries to pretend that it can continue to spend money it doesn't have to grow a government (business) that has no plan to repay the debt.Yes, I am making the business vs. government analogy of income vs. expenses - in other words, you can't continue to spend more money than your business can generate in revenues.
