Today I’m sharing my thoughts on smart progress of entrepreneurship, as they define the tone and value of the blogs I serve up. You will not see the oh-so-popular articles that I term ‘super soft or exclusively female.’ Yes, women entrepreneurs face more barriers on today’s entrepreneurial path, but I don’t believe articles that are exclusionary, that have a tone of devisiveness, or that feature topics that are totally ‘pink’ deliver the knowledge and value needed to grow skills and make sound business decisions. The traits of successful entrepreneurs are gender neutral, and we will reach parity when our efforts engage 100% of the population, not just 50%. It’s simply smart business. Here’s the latest and greatest over the past 2 weeks. Real value.
