Abstract: this study investigates three competing but complementar^ perspectives onfactors related to entrepreneurial firm growth. we examine individual (entrepreneur) firm and national environment factors associated with the growth expectations ofnascent, baby and establishedfirms. using 25,384 data pointsfrom global éntrepreneurship monitor (gem) 's survey of entrepreneurial activity in 35 countries, we find mole gender, personal acquaintance with an entrepreneur, innovative product/service, low levels of competition and based in less-developed countries are associated with high growth expectations for all three business stages. nascent and baby firms' business growth expectations are also linked to having higher levels of start-up capital and outside investment. in contrast to some previous research, wefind that a firm 's initial size is the best predictor of growth expectations. altogether, size-relatedfactors determine not only initial growth expectations, but also growth expectations at laterfirm stages. the law of disproportionate growth (le. a small number of firms are responsible for most expectedjob creation) holdsfor both start-ups and established busines-ses, although the latter are more rare. while both start-up and established firm growth expectations are higher in the developing countries, thefastest growing young firms are mainlyfound in developed countries.

Abstract: given the high rates of reported emotional stress among parents and teachers, the rational emotive behavior therapy approach appears to be a useful strategy to promote more effective parent and teacher emotional functioning and increase child positive behaviors and learning. the rational emotive behavior therapy model may be helpful for clinicians who work with the parents and the family by identifying and subsequently changing their unhealthy ideas, enhancing emotional functioning, and increasing their ability to make effective behavior management decisions. in addition, those who work with educators in a school-based setting may wish to consider implementing rational emotive behavior therapy methodology in their consultative and therapeutic interventions. given the data that links stress to unhealthy beliefs among educators, rational emotive behavior therapy may be an effective tool that warrants further application.

Abstract: Este estudio investiga tres perspectivas complementarias sobre los factores relacionados con el crecimiento de negocios emprendedores. Se examinan los factores individuales, de la empresa y de medio ambiente nacional asociados con las expectativas de crecimiento de las empresas nacientes, de reciente creación y establecidas. Usando 25,384 datos del Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) en 35 países, encontramos que los hombres, la red personal del emprendedor, la innovación del producto o servicio, menor competencia y estar en países menos desarrollados se asocian con expectativas de alto crecimiento para las tres etapas. Para los emprendedores nacientes y de reciente creación las expectativas de crecimiento también están vinculadas a tener mayores niveles de capital inicial e inversión. En contraste con algunas investigaciones previas, encontramos que el tama o inicial de la empresa es el mejor predictor de las expectativas de crecimiento. En total, los factores relacionados con el tama o determinan no sólo las expectativas de crecimiento iniciales, sino también las expectativas de crecimiento en etapas posteriores de la empresa. El desproporcionado crecimiento (es decir, un peque o número de empresas son responsables de la mayoría de la creación de empleo) se da tanto en empresas nuevas como en establecidas, aunque estas últimas son más escasas. Si bien, tanto la puesta en marcha y las expectativas de crecimiento son mayores en los países en desarrollo, los emprendimientos de más rápido crecimiento se encuentran principalmente en los países desarrollados.
