Front Cover

Rosa Barksdale listened to her heart when nearly everyone said she could not start her own business. Without a business plan and with a fraction of the money-she pawned her piano and a diamond ring for seed money-Barksdale used intuition as her compass to build a successful business. Today Barksdale Home Care Services, Corp. is one of the largest Home Health Care agencies in Pelham, NY, owned and operated by a woman. It is the largest minority employer of minority employees in Westchester County. As a nurse, a health teacher for the Board of Education in New York City, and a top sales representative for Abbott Laboratories, Barksdale developed skills, confidence, the drive to become her own boss, and the desire to improve the lives of others. Her husband and two children encouraged her. And intuition told her she could do it. The Intuitive Entrepreneur is her journey. The insight Barksdale shares in The Intuitive Entrepreneur will motivate readers in the wishful stages of starting a business and energize those on the fence to take the next crucial step. Woven into each chapter is the part played by intuition in each stage of building her business--from hiring the right people to developing a reputation in the community. Her experiences coping with resistance, change, and setbacks, coupled with her achievements and triumphs offer valuable insight for those considering building a business and those who are already in business for themselves.
