The article discusses ways women entrepreneurs can grow their business by having a documented business plan with long term strategies for expansion. The author claims women need to know if they have the means and competent support staff to deliver the goods to expand, and what economic factors can help or hurt them. She says factors like timing, getting ahead of competitors, and taking advantage of market opportunities are crucial. Women should reportedly be less emotional when making big decisions and having a mentor is said to be helpful.
