Within the world of business and being a woman has not always been an easy and serious paved path. This still holds true for empowering striving women entrepreneurs in today’s society. It hasn’t been too long ago in history that women were not thought much of in the working world. In modern times, when you attend business conventions and even college you are mostly surrounded by men than women. However, in today’s society this has definitely changing, and more and more women are becoming a strong force in the world of business and entrepreneurship. Women are truly a force to be taken seriously. Statistics show that more firms are owned and operated by women in The United States. It is proven and shown that one in five that is owned by a woman brings in over one million dollars. I have found a website that gives you some more information on the challenges of being a woman entrepreneur
that you might find interesting to read as well.
To be successful and empowering women in today’s world you must be able to wear a lot of “hats”. You must be able to successfully organize an enterprise using a considerable amount of initiative and confidence. Of course, with running your own business you may run into obstacles. One of the most common obstacles that entrepreneurs may face is lack of funding. Studies have shown that men are approximately twice as likely to raise money for funding opposed to women. When faced with the challenge of funding or even if you would just like to start off small, a great option is to begin your business at home and grow as much as you desire.
