Woman Entrepreneur of the Week

Every Monday I write about a Woman Entrepreneur of the Week.  I will continue to until I don't.  This week I am taking a pass because the holiday weekend continued to be a holiday until I went to bed last night so the post never got written. 

I have now written 129 posts about Women Entrepreneurs.  129 and counting.  I find each and every woman I meet and talk to impressive.  They each have their own story. There is a thread among all of them which is they all had this burning desire to start their own businesses and most of them came from families where one of the parents were entrepreneurs.  What is interesting about the parent part, the role model piece, is that of course it is not surprising.  Yet as we enter this era of entrepreneurs historically we are returning to a time when without an entrepreneurial spirit our country would not be what it is today.  Each of the women that I wrote about will more than likely raise their children to be entrepreneurs.  Just something to think about.

It is the hardest post I write a week but certainly the most rewarding.  I will return next week with another one about some other inspiring woman who has forged her own road as an entrepreneur.

    Just finished reading “Founder’s Dilemmas” by Noam Wasserman. He has some good data in there about parents being entrepreneurs influencing the next generation being more likely to follow an entrepreneurial path.

    “I will return next week with another one about some other inspiring woman who has forged her own road as an entrepreneur. “I know you have tons of women already to interview but here is one I can intro you to (someone I helped who then became a friend):http://www.rebeccarescate.c…I remember when she told me she was pregnant again and I thought she would never be able to run her business with a third child. I was wrong big time on that!She came from a business family. We met at Starbucks and she would always show up and be all ears to hear any and all advice. Complete with a note pad she would be scribbling down ideas I gave her and asking questions. (You’d be surprised how many people don’t want any advice or help…)She got the idea for what she did when she was living in a small apartment in Manhattan.
