“Has fear about the economic downturn loosened its grip on women business owners? The answer is resoundingly yes, according to the findings of the 2014 Business Outlook Survey, conducted by the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO). Economic concerns have plummeted. Just eight percent of members said they believe economic conditions are the biggest threat to their bottom-line growth, a dramatic drop from last year’s findings, when half of the respondents (50%) cited the economic downturn as their biggest worry.
Sponsored by KeyBank’s Key4Women program, the annual WPO survey conducted by the nonprofit, peer advisory group for leaders of multi-million dollar companies focuses on attitudes regarding business challenges and opportunities, as well as forecasted outcomes of top women-owned and led businesses around the world.”
