- And finally, check out this interesting article from the San Francisco Chronicle about entrepreneurs making New Year's Resolutions for their businesses. The article isn't specific to women entrepreneurs, but all the examples they use are from women:
Two years after starting a business making healthy frozen meals for young children, San Franciscan Jill Litwin resolved that 2007 would be the year she introduced her products at a trade show.
... But simply renting a booth would cost $4,000. Outfitting it with high-quality displays would be another $10,000 to $12,000, which was more than she could afford.
So Litwin came up with a creative do-it-yourself solution. A designer friend used PVC pipe and Velcro to create a beautiful booth for free. Litwin drove it down to Anaheim in her jeep. Her mother flew out from Milwaukee to help staff the booth.
... The upshot? Litwin landed a national distributor, which had been her second goal for the year.
