About this book


This book offers a comprehensive overview of work-life balance in the context of women’s entrepreneurship, specifically focusing on the factors that influence this balance. Using thematic qualitative text analysis, it interprets semi-structured interviews with experts in the field of women’s entrepreneurship, and based on this, presents the “7M” model, which is composed of seven dimensions and the corresponding factors that influence the work-life balance of women entrepreneurs. It also provides an in-depth analysis of all seven dimensions and describes the specific role of each dimension, highlighting the fact that women entrepreneurs are a highly heterogeneous group and that their work-life balance results from a complex interplay of various inter-related factors.
