Women Entrepreneurs Plan More 2

Interesting research:

Female entrepreneurs are more likely to plan their business development than their male counterparts, according to female business network Everywoman. Research from Everywoman highlighted that 55% of female entrepreneurs work to a business plan, compared with only 34% of male entrepreneurs.

The survey also found that women are more likely to set profit targets than men: 47% of female entrepreneurs compared with 37% of men.

The research also found that 88% of women predict that their business will grow over the next five years, compared to 74% of men.

    Thanks Tara. I hesitated to post this because in general I don't like the idea of gender-specific business behavior, but there you go. Somebody should to the survey about what percent of men believe in the superiority of women. I bet it would be 80% or more. Count me in on that too.

    I do think women tend to plan more BUT I really think that men who are more proactive about getting help are more apt to listen. I work with many small businesses and I find if men have a clear plan they execute, if they have no plan they tend to do nothing.

    PS – This makes sense to me as I tell my husband about the superiority of women all the time!!!
