Parenting : Growing Banana Idea
Competition is getting tougher.
Life will be harder for our children.
Resources are scarcer now than it has ever been, and it’s going to get worse.

It has nothing to do with us.
We are not in the mining business.

Preparing Our Own Ham
Have you heard about a story about a woman who prepares a ham for dinner by cutting off both ends.
Her bewildered husband asks why she cuts off the ends.
She replies, “That’s how my mom cooked it”.
Well, it just happened that her mom was coming for dinner that night.
So they asked her why she cut off the ends of the ham. Mom replies, “That’s how my mom cooked it”.
So they decide to call Grandma on the phone and ask why she cut off the ends of the ham.
“Because my pan was too small!”
Real Power of Women Entrepreneurs
What is the real power behind women entrepreneurs?
A study by the Center for Women’s Business Research shows that women now own 40 percent of private firms,
women-owned businesses generate about $3 trillion in revenue and employ 16 percent of the workforce;
making them significant players in the national economy.
In addition, the study found that 85 percent of women surveyed do not believe being a woman is detrimental to their business success, and 32 percent believe being a woman is beneficial.
There is power in being a woman entrepreneur.
There is even more power in the collaborations that are formed among women business owners.
Whether your product or service is exclusively for women or not, you simply cannot deny the intrinsic inclination to support each other and champion each other’s cause.
Why not use that to our advantage?
The real power in women entrepreneurs lies in our ability to connect, support and encourage each other straight to the top!
What Is Marketing?
Marketing is every communication you make about your product or opportunity.
It is about communication including the way we answer our phone,
the color and type of shoes you wear,
and your readiness to smile and greet a stranger you just met.
Marketing includes the design of your business card and the fact that you even have a business card on hand to give someone at a moment’s notice.
