The rising need for women as entrepreneurs
Read on to know why we need more female power in the world of entrepreneurship.
Ladies, if you always wanted to start your own business and work the way you want to, then now is the best era for you to do so. Thanks to technology, working from home and launching your own business has never been easier. If you are still not sure if being an entrepreneur is for you then here are 5 reasons that can help you decide:
Working on your own terms
This is one of the main reasons and also the best one when it comes to being an entrepreneur. The daily drill of the corporate lifestyle can become exhausting. With deadlines to meet, rushing to and back from work, missing out on family time can all leave someone feel miserable. When you become an entrepreneur, you set your own terms, timings and work load. You no longer have to deal with pressure that the office brings and work at your own pace. You are your own boss and you have to answer to any one in charge of you.
An opportunity to create
Being an entrepreneur might seem risky and daunting at first, but once you are settled in this lifestyle, it will give you heaps of opportunities to create and build your own business. Building your own empire and business brings a truly satisfying feeling. You learn your strengthens and discover new abilities that you never thought you had before. It gives a sense of personal pride and accomplishment that you have come this far in life. Many women who have built large business empires first started out as small entrepreneurs and who knows you could be one of them someday.
It requires no special credentials
You don’t have to be a graduate from a top tier business school to be a good entrepreneur; in fact you don’t even have to be a college grad to start your own business. This is not to say by any means that you shouldn’t get an education, but sometimes you learn more by doing something practically rather than sitting in a classroom and collecting student debt. There are many examples of women who never went to college yet have businesses running successfully. You can be from any background or experience and still run a good business.
Understanding the needs of women
Only women can understand the needs of women. There have been many businesses that have started by women for women. There is a gap in the market for many things that companies in general don’t focus on, you can focus on what women need and start a business. For e.g., the owner of the famous brand Spanx, Sarah Blakely became the youngest billionaire by starting her own business of special pants and leggings.
The pay scale
You won’t have to compete with the salary of men or through the gender wage gap problem once you start your own business. You will be paid according to your own terms without having to battle out wage issues with the company administration.
