Abstract

We live in a time when the importance of corporate social responsibility and ethics is apparent. Sadly, it is obvious that most leaders are more interested in making money than doing the right thing. The “Woman of Valor” described in Proverbs shows us what it takes to be successful: industriousness, entrepreneurship, honesty, kind-heartedness, devotion to family, and devotion to spiritual values.

Keywords: business ethics, woman of valor, entrepreneurship, Bible, gender discrimination, spiritual values
