It's almost 1990, and most of us would agree by now that women and men are, well, different. And that's just the point that the publishers of Entrepreneur magazine want to make on June 20, when they launch their latest editorial effort: Entrepreneurial Woman. The 114-page June issue includes articles on the best cars for women's entrepreneurial life styles, the outlook for the infant-products industry and a woman record executive, as well as a health column. The new periodical is planned as an every-other-month companion to the successful Entrepreneur, an Irvine-based publication whose audited readership is 300,000 and about 25% female.

The nation's top minority- and women-owned small businesses are feeling very much at home in the Golden State. Those are the findings of a just-released study by Entrepreneur magazine and Dun & Bradstreet, which shows that four of the top 10 minority-owned small businesses and two of the top 10 women-owned small firms are based in California--more than any other state. The study ranked U.S. businesses with less than 100 employees and an active minority or female owner by 1996 revenue.

If Rieva Lesonsky ever doubts that women in business have special concerns, her doubts disappear when the switchboard operator goes home for the night. Usually, that leaves Lesonsky, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Group magazines in Irvine, and publisher Jim Fitzpatrick answering late-evening telephone calls. "Sometimes (callers) ask me: Can you keep trying that number?" Lesonsky said. "I explain that I'm not the operator. No one ever asks Jim to do that."
