It’s imperative we support women in business to ensure that we continue to see a rise in female entrepreneurs today and well into the future.
A girl should be two things; who and what she wants. – Coco Chanel
Female entrepreneurs really do have something to rejoice about according to a recent ‘Forbes’ report, as the number of wealthy women in the U.S. is growing twice as fast as the number of wealthy men. 45% of American millionaires were women and it’s estimated that by 2030, women will control as much as two-thirds of the nation’s wealth. However, we still have some work to do and you can help shatter the glass ceiling for female entrepreneurs by continuing to support women in business.
When it comes to women starting a business, more so than men, it’s usually the fear of not knowing where to start, feeling unsupported and the possibility of failure that kills the dream before it’s even begun.
What would you do if you weren’t afraid? – Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook
Therefore, we believe this impressive upswing of female entrepreneurs is largely due to the fact that women genuinely feel more supported. With support comes confidence, resulting in courage to take a risk. Women are now also reaching out more to others, asking for assistance and are beginning to appreciate the importance of networking; realising the bigger and more diverse their network, the bigger their support base and the more likely they are to excel in business.
Let’s face it, we all need a little inspiration from time-to-time to get those plans off the ground or to stay focused and keep going. Fortunately, there are so many brilliant business leaders today generously sharing their wealth of knowledge, business tips and advice to inspire us and keep us motivated on our journey, so make the most of any opportunity to learn something new from the experts.

There’s nothing static in the world of business. It’s always changing and we’re constantly learning new and better ways to do business.
Let’s face it, we all have different strengths and we can’t be great at everything. So, let’s assist each other, share our knowledge, support one another on the journey and everyone benefits.
