5 things all women entrepreneurs should keep in mind !!

By Staff Feministaa in Starting Up 28/04/2016

Entrepreneurship requires more than  just an idea or a desire to convert your passion into a career. It requires the right opportunity, the right audience and the right amount of investment in the right direction. Without all these factors, being a entrepreneur would be a tough ride. Being a women entrepreneur comes with a hell lot of responsibility if you have a family to feed to and a bunch of in- laws to prove something to.

 

Making an identity for yourself is a costly affair and you will realise it once you take a plunge in the pool of entrepreneurship. Once you take the dive,  you are in it for a long haul. More than anything, entrepreneurship has become a fad which everyone wants to get their hands on.

 

Meanwhile, there are some basics which most the entrepreneurs forget about. Here are some only for the women entrepreneurs:

 

Do what makes you happy

The  most important and basic mantra to a successful venture is not to choose something which gives you ample amount of money, but choose the one which gives you ample happiness along with the money. Your sense of self fulfilment will drive the business up the ladder. Once you are content with your work, money will follow because you are doing what you love and hence, you tend to do it will your full heart.

 

Get all the legal paperwork in place

You don’t want to get into trouble later and outsource lawyers to get you out of trouble. Create a company which suits your model and get your respective trademarks/copyrights/patents in place . It is also crucial to have a legal disclaimer in place. Make your mails look professional and learn the basics of email etiquettes. This is very crucial when dealing with corporate professionals. A good email can help you get business.

 

Don’t hesitate to ask

Sometimes, asking questions to the right person is all that is required to get your business on the right track. Go for events and participate actively in the discussions. Don’t think about what other people will say because it really doesn’t matter. Rather, try to find a mentor who has some experience in the industry you are trying to make your niche. It’s hard to find someone who will give you his time for free but there is no harm in asking.

 

Don’t copy what other women are doing

Women have a tendency to imitate. Just because “she” is doing well in that job does not guarantee your success. Remember, every person has a unique skill set. You have yours and it’s your responsibility to nurture it. Just getting into something because it’s trending or because your neighbour is making money while doing it, should not be a motivating factor for you.

 

Let your patience do the talking

Women are known to be much more patient than men. Women should use this trait to get their game up. This is what can help you become a successful entrepreneur. Don’t be hasty and stubborn with your decisions. Also, never expect immediate returns. Patience is the key to being a successful entrepreneur. Great things take time  and you need to be persistent with your efforts to make it happen.
