Page Yaneek FPIn her latest business advice column in The Gleaner, Country Director for WEConnect International in the Caribbean Yaneek Page warns part-time entrepreneurs that they may be cheating themselves. Writes Yaneek:

"A few years ago, I convinced one of my business coaching clients to take three weeks' vacation leave from his full-time job and execute his strategic growth plan during that period. The business experienced its most profitable quarter ever, and their client base doubled. There was no miracle or magic, just a formal sales strategy, tighter team management, constant and aggressive customer prospecting, closer customer relationships, strategic networking and stronger financial controls. Three years later, his only regret is that he didn't resign sooner."

(April 25, 2017) Within the framework of WEConnect International’s research project “Enhancing the Growth of Women-Owned Businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean by Building on Private Sector Initiatives” funded by Canada’s International Development Research Centre, on April 20th, 2017 WEConnect International in the Caribbean held an executive panel to discuss information related to women entrepreneurs and to share experiences and knowledge that promote the private, public and civil society sectors to better understand the needs of women-owned businesses in the region.
