Being a Woman Entrepreneur

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.

Looking back on that evening at Robarts Library, as a 2nd year University of Toronto student I made a decision to write down my thoughts and publish them online.
