CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) June 23, 2004
International entrepreneur and author Laurel Delaney announces the launch of Laurel Delaney Company, a professional services firm specializing in global entrepreneurial development. Through LaurelDelaney.com, the company offers practical and relevant information that empowers individuals to become successful global entrepreneurs.
Besides articles on entrepreneurship, the Chicago-based LaurelDelaney.com Web site offers developmental programs that foster and nurture characteristics leading to successful international business ownership.
Entrepreneurship is not solely a North American phenomenon. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2003 Executive Report estimates that among 40 GEM countries, there are 300 million nascent entrepreneurs attempting to establish 192 million new firms. In the U.S. alone, there are over 25 million entrepreneurs making tremendous contributions to our nation in association with innovation, growth and wealth creation.
ÂThe explosion of entrepreneurship in the last few years is largely attributable to people shifting away from corporate America and moving toward the powerful Internet world,Â says Delaney. ÂJust putting up a Web site instantaneously makes an entrepreneur global. Technology has truly resulted in a shrinking planet and the liberation that comes with selling everyone, everywhere, can be both intoxicating and exhilarating. This new breed of born-global entrepreneurs need assistance with their business, with their own behavior at the level of the individual and at the level of the firm and within their industries.Â
Nearly every adult, at some point or another, has thought about starting a business and, yet, most do not. International entrepreneur and author Laurel Delaney has devoted her entire career to the quest of closing the gap between thinking of an idea and making it happen on a worldwide basis.
