Geri Stengel is no newbie when it comes to social entrepreneurship. A serial entrepreneur and a non-profit board member she writes about the journey to realising your organisational vision, as well as insights, techniques and solutions to make your business goal a reality.
When you start digging, you find out all sorts of interesting things, both good and bad. Stengel has been researching the success factors that unite highly successful women entrepreneurs. Along the way, she has learned about ways in which small businesses can help themselves move up the ladder of success, how focusing on work/life fit can help a company grow and, yes, the factors that help women entrepreneurs succeed as well as pitfalls to beware of. Although her sources are women entrepreneurs, their wisdom applies to both men and women business owners and nonprofit leaders.
