Abstract:
Why is consensus and clarity about the definition of entrepreneurship so elusive? The central premise of this paper is that we can gain a better understanding of the problem of defining entrepreneurship, of what it means to us as a field of research, and what we can hope to achieve by grappling with it, by substituting one question for another. The question we must start with to get a clear view is not “What is entrepreneurship?”, but rather “What sort of concept is entrepreneurship?” This reframing enables us to see that entrepreneurship is a family resemblance concept. It follows from this metacognitive insight, if it is correct, that all attempts to define entrepreneurship will be subject to counterexamples. This perspective is used to therapeutically alleviate emotional and behavioral problems in the field of entrepreneurship, and to offer practical suggestions for how to deal productively with paradigmatic diversity in the field.

Abstract:
The business model phenomenon is struggling to establish theoretical relevance. While there are hundreds of business model papers (Massa, Tucci and Afuah, 2017), significant questions remain regarding if and how the business model phenomenon is theoretically grounded and thus relevant for scholarly discourse (e.g., Arend, 2013; Teece, 2010). Theoretical relevance involves the development and evaluation of the value of scientific knowledge (Sandberg and Alvesson, 2020) and differentiates academic researchers from practitioners and journalists (Dubin, 1978).

Abstract:
This study proposes and tests a model of work-family synergy that addresses some of the shortcomings observed in the literature. We examine pathways that enhance work-family synergy (positive energy and mood states) and overall wellbeing for employees who report to a supervisor. Individual level data for 1534 working Americans who responded to the National Study for the Changing Workforce were examined using structural equation modelling and mediation techniques. Overall support for the proposed work-family synergy model was found. Only one significant gender difference was found but further study is needed. Supervisor and coworker support mediated relationships between work-resources and work-family synergy which, in turn, was related to wellbeing. Depression mediated the work-family synergy with job satisfaction relationship. The findings inform individuals and organizations on the importance enhancing and sustaining work-family synergy because of its relationship to job satisfaction and wellbeing.
