On Their Own: The Meaning of Change Experienced by Female Entrepreneurs as They Initiate New Business Ventures.
Coyle, H. Elizabeth; Ellinger, Andrea
PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, v12 p31-45 2003
Cases of four female entrepreneurs produced seven themes related to the meaning of change resulting from business start-up: definition of the transition experience within a connected self, precursors and readiness, support of informal networks, traits, risk-taking behaviors, motivations, and decision making. The results imply that entrepreneurship programs for women should use the contextual framework of relationships. (Contains 24 references.) (SK)
