The world of entrepreneurs has largely been dominated by men. Now, that's beginning to change. According to the U.S. Census, there's been more than a 30-percent jump in female business owners. Still, their path to success might be somewhat different than that of men. On this episode, the second of two focusing on entrepreneurship, we speak with author, marketing expert and serial entrepreneur Felena Hanson. She's the founder of Hera Hub, a shared workspace and community for female innovators. With six locations around the world and growing, it supports hundreds of aspiring business executives in more than 16 industry segments. The author of Flight Club — Rebel, Reinvent and Thrive: How to Launch Your Dream, Hanson talks about what it takes for women to thrive in the often cutthroat world of business startups, the qualities that an entrepreneur needs to have, and why she believes that "woman will be responsible for the next wave of prosperity in the U.S." Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
