Μέσα στο 2012, υπήρξαν λαμπρά παραδείγματα γυναικείας επιχειρηματικότητας είτε μέσα από τις startup επιχειρήσεις, είτε μέσα απ' την ιδιωτική απασχόληση των γυναικών. Παράλληλα, υπήρξε έκρηξη σύστασης ΜΚΟ για θέματα γυναικών και εργασίας, συμβουλευτικής, όπως επίσης και ισότητας. Για το 2013, εγκρίθηκαν ευρωπαϊκές επιδοτήσεις (δες εδώ) προς ενίσχυση της επιχειρηματικής δραστηριότητας των γυναικών.
Having just completed an innovation session last week where The Brainzooming Group was leading a client in addressing its customer service experience innovation, this Brainzooming guest blog post from Woody Bendle was top of mind for me. Woody shares a robust approach to pursue if you are trying to address any opportunity to differentiate your organization relative to the customer experience you deliver.
Η δυνατότητα δικτύωσης προμηθευτών και εμπόρων, δηλαδή η έξυπνη επικοινωνία διαφορετικών ηλεκτρονικών καταστημάτων και η ανταλλαγή της γκάμας των προϊόντων τους και η οποία θα έχει ως αποτέλεσμα την ανεξαρτητοποίηση των διαδικτυακών εμπόρων από το ζωνάρι της Amazon και της Google είναι μια από τις μεγαλύτερες προκλήσεις του Ηλεκτρονικού Εμπορίου.
"The Mad Men era of advertising has passed. But what does advertising mean in this new age where there is no such thing as a "traditional" agency? Today, a brand’s communication and engagement strategy is no longer a separate and distinct practice from the design of a product or service. The two are intertwined. The product is the marketing, and the marketing is the product."
Hi, all. I came across this opportunity (see below) for bloggers that I thought some of you might be interested in. Why am I doing this for you? I review publicity opportunities for my marketing clients, but when I saw this, I thought of ProjectEve.

"I frequent a lot of different blogs every day and I always make sure to spend time on the various ecommerce platform blogs. Some ecommerce platforms obviously invest a lot of resources into a high quality blog and others clearly couldn’t care less. Here is my list of the best ecommerce blogs out there"
I consider myself reasonably intelligent, yet I have had no problem surrounding myself with people at or above my intellectual level. I’ve also had good relationships with co-workers at all levels of intelligence. Unless you’re a world-class genius (statistically unlikely), you are probably mis-diagnosing people as stupid.
I’ll assume that you’re not just lashing out at others as a defense mechanism against your own insecurities (although you need honestly ask yourself that). I’ll assume that you sincerely believe that other people are stupid, probably based on finding it difficult to discuss things and agree with them.
But what you’re really evaluating is their judgment. Differences in judgment are rarely due to stupidity—in work, in friendships or in politics. You can’t address the problem until you identify the real cause. Calling everyone “stupid” leaves you with no next steps.

How Brunello Cucinelli’s fashion company tapped demand for quality Italian goods to lift sales of its $1,280 sweaters and other products by 15 percent last year.
With three-quarters of his sales from overseas, Cucinelli says the rest of Italy should follow his model: produce quality goods and sell them everywhere — especially outside Italy
Milos Crafts's insight:
"produce quality goods and sell them everywhere"...seems so simple doesn't it! So next step is selling quality goods made by Greek companies and "integrating themselves into the “global supply chain" ..... which may not be so easy.
