I noticed this item on a workshop at the Pratt (Kansas, USA) Women’s Conference:
Kansas is on the cutting edge of grassroots economic development, according to Linda McCowan, enterprise facilitator for Entrepreneurship Networks of Great Bend. In her break-out session she will talk about the three cones for entrepreneurship: a good service or product, a good marketing strategy and good financial management. No one is good at all three; her job as a facilitator is to help them find resources for the areas they don’t do well so they can concentrate their energies where their talents and interests lie.
“What I try to tell people is ‘you can be an entrepreneur. You don’t have to do it all,’” McCowan said.
