Companies are beginning to defy cynicism and doom Sayers. Business grooming enables companies to recognise their strengths, identify opportunities, create business plans that withstand financial scrutiny and enter new ventures or markets in a measured and low risk manner. Smaller companies have become so adept at responding to crisis that management-by-crisis has become the order of the day. Whilst senior managers focus on fire fighting and managing one crisis after another, the management time is not spent on strategic thinking, planning for the future and managing change or adapting to new environment. Business grooming helps companies to anticipate crisis rather than react to it, reduces waste by focusing on sound decision making process, and nurtures innovation so that companies can take advantage of new opportunities presented to them.

Finally entrepreneurship is about failure. An entrepreneur as a person who is willing to fail. Fascinating but true.

Believe in it more than anybody else”. Women entrepreneurs unlike a struggle before have been accepted and encouraged by extended support from the family and friends. Awareness through media and parents in today’s world wanting the best for their children, irrespective of a girl or a boy has helped in increasing numbers of women entrepreneurs. There is a segment though that is still conservative and with the way the Indians are adapting to the western culture, it is not going to be too long to overcome such social pressures.
From Walmart’s case, it is apparent that the company employed an equity entry model when establishing its presence in German market. This is because apart from retaining its name, it also invested its resources in its own physical stores, employees, branding among others. However, direct investment worked against the company since its operations did not match the local culture while also exposing it to high risks in the face of failure (Durand, and Wrigley, 2009). Ietto-Gillies, (2012) admit business management that foreign direct investment is a risky strategy for multinationals. This is because it requires a complete comprehension of business environment, culture and customers in the foreign country. Similarly, Walmart’s entry strategy did not allow it to understand the local culture, business environment, consumer needs and behavior. This may work to explain why its marketing strategy did not tally with the local culture, consumer behavior and customer tastes (Durant and Wrigley, 2009).
