Three Things to Be a Successful Female Entrepreneur

Monday, October 24, 2011


To be a successful entrepreneur, you must be an achiever, driven, tenacious, and independent. This is the case regardless if you are a male entrepreneur or a female entrepreneur. With more and more female entrepreneurs entering the realm of success, many to wonder, What does it take to be a successful female entrepreneur?

The answer lies in these three things:

  • Pride in Independent Thinking
  • Fearless Determination to Achieve Goals
  • A Willingness to Create Opportunities When Others See Limitations

Male and female entrepreneurs are cut from the same cloth, but what makes them different are the experiences in their lives and how those characteristics became manifest. Let me give you an example. To be female and to be a leader usually means heartache for girls before they come to accept how unusual they are and consider it an advantage. How many of you felt like an odd ball growing up? Over the years how many of you have been told you were too aggressive or unfeminine? How many of you outperformed your male colleagues only to watch the men be promoted at your expense?

For girls to grow up to be successful women business leaders they must conquer the fear of being unfeminine. Women leaders who have overcome their fear of thinking like a man, ore behaving like a man, know they are women. Furthermore they know that each woman leader is a unique human being who brings her own particular personality to the organization she is leading. Like male leaders, female leaders are more definable by their leadership qualities than their gender. Women who are leaders must pursue leadership by breaking the rules. If you don't like breaking the rules, you can't be a leader if you are female.

If you see leadership potential in yourself, nurture it. Follow those three key ideas and you too can be a successful female entrepreneur!
