Cynthia Baughan Wheaton earned an MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill at a time when few women sought one. She spent nine years managing new ventures and more than twenty-five years as a business consultant.
In 2012, Cynthia established The Entrepreneur’s Friend(r), a website offering practical guidance, encouraging character development and sharing spiritual insight to help others plan, start and grow businesses. Her first book was recently released on Amazon: Are You Ready to Start Your Own Business? A Sanity Check for Those who Dream of Self-Employment.
A graduate of Meredith College, she and her husband have nurtured two kids into adulthood, while working together from their Chapel Hill home.
