After facilitating over 500 sessions with leadership teams in growth mode, Jill Young observed that true entrepreneurs thrive in courage rather than fear. In short, these business owners have a courage mindset: a way of thinking that fuels the evolution. Young, a certified EOS implementer, entrepreneur, and speaker who specializes in guiding business owners to create a vision, experience traction, and form unified teams, dissects the secrets of the courage mindset for the entrepreneur and team that encourages expression in three ways: to practice discipline, lighten up, and experiment, all while still achieving the kind of growth that takes companies to new heights. While serving as an approachable coach and cheerleader, Young leads entrepreneurs through a step-by-step process that identifies roadblocks to success, pinpoints time wasters, invites the creation of positive workplace environments where people thrive, and encourages experimentation. 1.

It was the close friendship and professional association between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels that enabled Marx’s full vision presented in Capital: A Critique of Political Economy to come to fruition. Following Marx’s death in 1883, Engels was able to step into the breach and, drawing on Marx’s extensive notes and writings, complete volume 2 of Capital, leading to its publication in 1885. Here, Marx turns his attention to the money owner, the money lender, the wholesale merchant, the trader and the entrepreneur or 'functioning capitalist.' The work is divided into three parts: 'The Metamorphosis of Capital and Their Circuits'; 'The Turnover of Capital'; and finally 'The Reproduction and Circulation of the Aggregate Social Capital'. Though more theoretical and perhaps thus more challenging than volume 1, Marx’s intentions in volume 2 were clear: ‘We investigate...the social intertwining of different capitals, of the component parts of capital and of revenue.’ By looking at the ‘movement of commodities and of money’, Marx was able to clarify the patterns involved in the capitalist mode of production. This is clear in the subtitle of volume 2: The Process of Circulation of Capital. Translation: Samuel Moore and Edward Aveling. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Derek Le Page.

Although there has been a growing recognition of the importance of the key strategic decisions during SMEs internationalisation process, scholars have tended to ignore why firms change their strategy and why a new strategy is chosen. This research tried to fill this gap by giving a rich insight into changes that occur in internationalisation strategies after the first foreign market entry. The Study was built up on the integration of the Network Theories and the International Entrepreneurship, since the adoption of a mere network perspective did not allow to analyze how the entrepreneur characteristics and decisions affect the international expansion and strategy. The research methodology was pluralistic, since it embraced both a qualitative and a quantitative method, in order to generate an improved understanding of SMEs internationalisation process. Reflecting upon the findings of both stages, the research provided a valuable contribution to the knowledge of SMEs' internationalisation, showing the importance of analyzing when a firm decides to change its markets or its entry mode, along a continuum of reactive versus proactive changes.
Internationalization has become an extensively researched area in the last years as a consequence of global integration of the economic environment. The complexity of the internationalization phenomenon can be found in the various definitions of internationalization as well as in many theories underpinning internationalization research. This study attempts to conceptually integrate previous SME internationalization theories into a new developing area of international entrepreneurship. It proposes a new refined conceptual model of international entrepreneurship, including internationalization antecedents (the environment, the company and the entrepreneur), main internationalization dimensions (mode, market, product, time and internationalization performance) as well as internationalization consequences (firm growth and profitability). Special focus is given to the social and human capital of the main entrepreneur. The conceptual model is also empirically tested on Slovenian SMEs. Different implications for researchers, practitioners and policy makers have been proposed.
