Just check out the Forbes billionaire list to the feminine footprints on the economy, it’s very clear that women-led businesses are making powerful strides and succeeding in their endeavors. But don’t get too comfortable just yet.
Us women still have work to be done and more barriers to break. We can do it though! We want to motivate you to keep going, challenge you to be even better than you are now, and urge you to think higher to accelerate your business in ways that you couldn’t even imagine! So, to help you do this, here are five empowering tips for women entrepreneurs:
Own Your Greatness
Knowing your greatness means you’re secure in your strengths, unlimited by your weaknesses and confident in your power. Many times, we don’t value our brilliance that lies from within. As women, we tend to see the best in everybody else but can’t see it in ourselves, right? Let today be different. You are stepping out on faith, carrying forth your vision and making things happen. You are taking ideas and implementing them into the universe. You are planting seeds towards your success and watching them grow. Own that and use it as fuel to inspire, impact and change the world.
Whenever you walk in your greatness, challenges occurs. Fear shows up to bully you, control you and lead you away from your destiny. Don’t let it. Fear is confirmation you’re moving in the right direction. Redirect that nervous energy into something phenomenal. You’ve come this far so why stop now? Keep going. Keep pushing. Keep seeking. The best thing to do with fear is to step right past it. Action is your greatest defense.
Keep Your Eyes on the Prize
If your to-do list looks anything like ours, you probably need more than 24 hours to complete it. You have business stuff, household stuff and don’t forget social media and of course parenting. But being a powerful woman requires efficiency and discipline with your time. Productivity is key and an indispensable part of your business DNA. Keep your eyes on the prize and be aware of your distractions. Do you spend too much time on social media? Is it spending all your time creating the to-do list, versus actually doing it? Remember, distractions are nothing more than roadblocks to your destiny. Be wise with your time and handle your business.
Define Your Own Fabulous
People often associate fabulous with how someone looks or what someone has, but it’s much broader than that. Fabulous is an expression of the uniqueness of you. It’s the confidence you carry in your personal and professional brand. Are you fabulous? Is your business fabulous? What is it about what you do and how you do it that adds value to the world? When you define your fabulous, it manifests in your confidence and the success of your company.
Go Get It
Many of us are selling ourselves too short because we’re waiting on someone else to make things happen in our business. Don’t be passive. Go after what you want. Go all out for opportunities you want and make sure you focus on sales. Most importantly, master the art of the follow-up. It often takes multiple points of contact to seal the deal!
These are just a few reminders and ideas to keep you pumped up along the way. It’s exciting to see women owned businesses excel year after year. Keep the momentum going and continue to open history making doors for generations to come. Let’s succeed together!
