The Nobel Peace Prize 2006

Hi Team

Micro lending has been recognized.... This is wonderful news! After my being involved in not for profit lending and community economic development lending to small and home based business startups for over twenty years I think that this is great news.

I have provided a banner link to the "Grameen Foundation USA " in the Right margin....Go ahead and click through.

Then watch the 16 minute video on the home page. (This is all about enpowerment!)

Maybe you might even consider becoming involved in enpowering millions of people....Go, Watch, think about how this may apply in YOUR life.

Before you go, click the link below to hear the interview with Mr. Muhammad Yunus....Thanks

"for their efforts to create economic and social development from below"

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2006, divided into two equal parts, to Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for their efforts to create economic and social development from below. Lasting peace can not be achieved unless large population groups find ways in which to break out of poverty. Micro-credit is one such means. Development from below also serves to advance democracy and human rights.

A Woman's Point of view....

Hi Team

Women are from Venus while Men are from Mars...Right?

Well check out Louisa Bird's thoughts @ Women's Marketing Fourm

Women run businesses differently than men do. Here's how...

We women usually take a very different approach from men when it comes to working for ourselves, an approach I've seen time and time again, both in speaking to many fellow women business owners and in the research on women in business.

Men are in business...

To make money

Women are in business...

For the freedom to be able to meet personal commitments
For the flexibility to handle family responsibilities
For personal fulfilment
To express our personal values and beliefs
And to make money at the same time.

Self-employment can be the answer to a woman's prayer!
