It’s not easy for entrepreneurs to start a business, but there are some extra challenges for women entrepreneurs. Technalink believes that women entrepreneurs can achieve the success they deserve, but it always helps to follow a few tips.
Networking Is Crucial
The business community is just that; a community. Even if you’re running a sole proprietorship with yourself as owner and only employee, your business is part of an existing environment with people. Get to know these people and be an active community member to help promote your business.
Find A Mentor
If you’re wondering how other women entrepreneurs did it before you, the best way to find out is to learn from them. A good tip tied to networking is to find women entrepreneurs in your business community. They’ve already experienced and overcome everything you face, so they are valuable business education sources.
Manage Your Time
At the start of any new business, the hardest thing to do is maintain a healthy work/life balance. However, this can often be a herculean challenge for women, especially those still parenting. Now more than ever, managing time will be a struggle, but it’s also important to try.
Read This Book
Learning important business lessons for women entrepreneurs can come from just about anywhere. One of the best sources is this book, The Om Factor: A Women’s Spiritual Guide To Leadership, written by founder Alka Dhillon, the “spiritual CEO.” She has already succeeded at not just being a woman entrepreneur in a male-dominated field but also retaining a sense of spirituality that has helped her business rather than hindered it.
The book is available in various formats, including traditional print for your bookshelf, digital for people that prefer eReaders and other electronic devices, and audiobooks for people on the go or those with vision impairments. The audiobook is narrated by Alka Dhillion herself, so it’s like you’re getting lessons directly from the master.
