Five Female Leaders from Trinidad and Tobago
Advance Praise For Minding Their Own Business
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR
Minding Their Own Business
“These five Caribbean women entrepreneurs all have imagination and a distinct ability to bring dreams into reality. The common denominator is that they were able to excel away from home and they all had strong family engagement. Let them keep the Caribbean rhythm flowing!”
—Judith Morrain Webb, Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, University of Trinidad and Tobago
“Joanne Kilgour Dowdy’s book extends the popular concept of entrepreneurship to include the cultural and social histories and communities of practice that support economic growth and well-being. Through the life stories and case studies of immigrant business women from the Caribbean, we learn how literacies emerge from their network of labor practices. The women in this book teach us how through their businesses they achieve social, cultural, and economic transformation for themselves and within society. The book offers new insights for workplace and vocational education, adult literacy studies, and immigrant studies.”
