Running a Business Like a Girl
Being a girl isn't as bad as it used to be. Elizabeth Cogswell Baskin tells of the advantages of running a business and being female. She says that women have natural tendancies to go with their gut instincts. In doing so, they usually hire the better person for the job, because they don't go souly on resume's, they take the interview into account alot more than men. By going with their gut instincts they usually end up hiring the better employee. After dediding on a decision, they back it up with the facts and figures they need, and it usually ends up being a pretty good choice. I agree with Elizabeth on this one. Men tend to look only at the numbers and what looks the best on paper, but by letting yourself see into the whole picture, as women often do, the end result could end up benefiting you, and getting you that promotion you've been hoping for.
