Female Entrepreneurs: The Movement

(Taken from The Shreveport Times)
As I left, yet another, consultation meeting with a program that assists individuals with starting a business, I felt defeated. It was my fourth consultation with experts who had years of business acumen on having a successful business, and I felt defeated because the information given to me was limited. Also, there was no follow up. I felt I wasn’t given the entire scope, nor encouragement, on creating and sustaining a successful for-profit business.
