    Halima's article has some great insights for female (and male!) entrepreneurs. I think one of the best bits of wisdom is, "the work you turn away is as important as what you accept." As Halima points out, saying yes to everything isn't always best for your business in the long run. You may end up taking focus away from projects that could help your startup long term in order to focus on those that may not help your overall objective.

    @Cara Boyer, I agree that while this article has the female entrepreneur in mind, it is great content for anybody. I also concur that as an entrepreneur selling a service, you should not should not be "Yes man" -- or in this case, a "Yes Woman." Only take on projects that are a fit for both you and the potential client, and those you know you can complete to satisfactory.
