After launching MalamaDoe - A Coworking Community for Women, it became apparent that not all women business owners needed a space to work or meet clients for meetings. However, they were seeking a trusted network of women entrepreneurs. MalamaDoe's founder, Sheila Long, interviewed over 40 business women about where they were at in their quest for work place flexibility. Based on her findings, she created theWomen Business Life Cycle.
The Business Creation Life Cycle segments the stages of a business being created from Discovery, to Business Planning, to Growth, to Running a Business to Focused Fulfillment. The Life Cycle identifies the different facets involved in the journey of each segment. These Life Cycle facets range from the founder’s knowledge of their Elevator Pitch, Service Offering and Professional Network to key areas of her Business Funding, Actual Sales, and the Emotional State. In the Business Creation Life Cycle, the Pain points for each stage are clarified.
