It is never easy to be women, especially in a country which is a male-dominated society. Every step of the way you have to fight for your rights and for yourself and who you want to be? If you let the others you are going to become a doormat very easily. I’m not going to become feminist over talking about them having equal rights for women.
Trust me you don’t want that kind of equal rights, not every male out there is here to change the world some are only there to ruin their own existence. But I want every woman to get an education and equal right to work and to be heard in this society.
It’s really hard for a working woman to manage everything, especially in a place where everyone is out there to make it much harder for you. If you are a working woman and wants to start her own business, things are going to be thousands of times harder for you.
Today I’m going to talk about ” 8 Tip for Aspiring Female Entrepreneurs”. The first and foremost thing is that you never going to have it easy for you.
“Be stubborn and thick-skinned. Because I think even If you’re passionate, and even if you’re good at what you do, I think you are likely to subject to preconceived notions of who can do what — Anab Jain.
1. Do Something That You Love and Passionate About
It’s really important that you choose something that you are really passionate about and love it and know everything about it. Otherwise, when the high of proving yourself to the others wear off, you might start thinking about closing that business because you are going to start feeling that you are wasting your time chasing something you don’t even like and feel passionate about. Because when everyone turns against and gonna try hard to stop you. Your passion and love gonna keep you going. Your passion is going to be your motivation.
2. Doing All The Research Into The Field That You Are Entering
Like every time I’m gonna repeat myself. Do your research? Find anything and everything about the business that you want to start. You can go to the internet to read articles and go-ahead read as many books as you can. Find the right people who support you and give you the right advice. Cut out the people who are nothing but a hurdle in your path. You don’t need that kind of negativity for yourself.
3. Find a Perfect Mentor
It’s hard to even for a man to find the right mentor on time and it’s gonna be much harder for you. Be prepared for it. Surround yourself with right and positive people. Everyone not gonna support you from the start but the right and the people who really care about you are gonna stand by you even when they don’t like the idea you are representing. Ask questions as much as you can leave nothing out of it.
A good mentor is really hard to find. When you find one? You gonna know it is worth all the struggle you put yourself through. Keep the mentors happy to give them the respect that they deserve. Check up on them every day, even just to say hi and how they are doing? Find a person who is not biased and give the harsh truth instead of sugar-coated lies.
4. Stop Talking, Just Start Doing It
Talking means nothing if you are saying I want to do this and do that? But it is not the right time. Trust me if you are giving yourself excuses and it is never going to be the right time. Put your plans, dreams, and wishes into the action. Because the talk is cheap and no one wants to hear you chatter about your dreams. If you can’t turn them into reality?
5. Make Business Plans And Set Goals For Yourself
Write down your business strategy. What are you planning to do, how you gonna put it into action? Go talk to the experts especially your mentor and ask them every single question you got into your mind even if it sounds silly and stupid? Trust me, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Set goals for yourself. When you start a business and achieved what you wanted to let’s say in two years now what? I tell you what to make plans where do you see yourself in five years and keep on setting goals for yourself. So you never lose the passion and love for it.
6. Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard
It is very important if you are the only woman in a meeting room? Make sure you are strong enough to be heard in a meeting room full of men. Because people might ignore you and your opinion doesn’t matter because you are a woman doesn’t know about the business world as a man does. Like I said before, go do your research try to make all your facts right and help everyone see things from your perspective.
You need to make your business circle wide. Try to communicate with people who are interested in your ideas and ready to buy what you are selling or someone who knows someone who might be interested in what your ideas and product are? Try attending the public conferences about business and try meeting people over there and put your ideas and product out there. Meet as many people as you can. Try to find out what your potential client is looking for and what you can do to make it better?
8. Choose a Supportive Life-Partner
Most men don’t support working women they like to be the only breadwinner of the house. So make sure before you choose a life partner. That he understands you and your passion and the time you need to put into your work. That he stands by you no matter what. Never making you choose between him and your business.
” Be yourself. There is something that you can do better than any other. Listen to the inward voice and bravely obey that.”
