A friend of mine, a gifted entrepreneur, Eileen Kessler and a mentor in EWI’s Entrepreneur Fellowship Class 2014, suggested I read “Crazy is a compliment” by Linda Rottenberg, Co-founder and CEO of Endeavor, a nonprofit supporting entrepreneurs around the world.
The book speaks in the voice of the work we do at Empowered Women International, and I highly recommend this book to all dreamers.
In her book, Linda shared that for some time she believed that entrepreneurs “are born, not made.” However, after two decades of working with entrepreneurs, she now is convinced that entrepreneurship can be learned, and that anyone can practice to become an entrepreneur.
Over the past 12 years, Empowered Women International has been teaching entrepreneurship as a way of life, as a mindset for following one’s passion and dreams, and as an opportunity for self-employment and economic support.
Mastering the art of entrepreneurship is not simply about starting a business
Entrepreneurship is a way to give voice to acts of courage and acts of healing
Entrepreneurship is a powerful act of creation and a source of building community
Onward and Upward!
