In Februrary I pointed out that women are starting businesses at a clip that is twice the rate of men.  Now, turns out the Miss USA pageant winner is also an entrepreneur. 

Frankly, I think it’s pretty cool that the headlines about the winner, Crystle Stewart, read, "Texas entrepreneur named Miss USA".  No surprise though.  Models including Tyra Banks and Kathy Ireland are demonstrating they are much more than a pretty face in the business world.  Ireland’s business grosses over $1 billion per year and Banks has likewise demonstrated incredible business acumen.

In my own practice I am seeing more and more women who are becoming entrepreneurs.  The one thing I have noticed about women entrepreneurs as opposed to the men is that they tend to research the business start-up process a little more carefully than men.  Don’t necessarily know why, it just seems to be the case.
