Women are natural entrepreneurs

This morning I was asked what attributes women possessed that made them entrepreneurs.  Here’s my reply for all the moms who each day invent a better way of doing something or refine a product and dream of developing it to help others:

Women are natural entrepreneurs because they are wired to be innovative, always seeking better and easier ways of doing things.  Men evolved relying on physical strength; women had to use their wits to survive.  Whereas men were focused on the big target such as killing the mammoth, women had to care for children and multi-task.  Women also see connections that men often miss.  Entrepeneurs must be innovative, creative and able to perform a dozen things at one time.  Women’s social skills also serve them well in entrepreneurship.
