Hello Darlings, Most of the conversations on the topic of being a woman entrepreneur or a successful businesswoman tackle the issue of how to overcome the challenges. In my opinion that is a very short sighted view!
Being an entrepreneur comes with its own set of challenges that are unique to every individual; stating that because you’re a woman there are more challenges is simply unfair. In the years that I have graduated from university and set out to receive my first government grant to pursue a crazy dream, I have learned that being a woman in business has absolutely nothing to do with fairness. Yes, it is a fact that our natural tendency as a female is wanting to be liked and accepted by our peers, a quality that often times cripples one’s advancement in a business world. Therefore, being a woman is not the challenge or disadvantage, it is our very own nature that often stands in the way of our success.
