The business environment has traditionally favored men, who have better jobs.

Though women are now occupying some influential positions in some sectors previously dominated by men, the majority of entrepreneurs are still men.

Gender bias sidelines women from competing with their male counterparts. But when women get the chance to equip themselves, they work hard to outshine their male counterparts, sometimes with limited resources.

Know what you want

“I’m a businesswoman who’s serious about her money,” Toni Braxton said. “I want an empire.” The American singer knew what she wanted, and she wanted to achieve it.

In business, you have to go the extra mile to reach your goals, whether you are a male or female, keep fighting for your space because nobody will give it to you for free.

Her quest to build an empire has been reached. Braxton is one of the highest-selling and earning female singers.

Pull her up

“I absolutely love Oprah Winfrey,” praised Gwendoline Christie. “What a great woman and a great businesswoman. She seems to campaign for an expansion of global consciousness. I think she’s phenomenal.”

Women in business have respect for each other. Oprah Winfrey is a global media personality, who has influenced many people in her long career, including Christie.

Leave a legacy

Before she died in 2018, Kate Spade had written part of her obituary. “I hope that people remember me not just as a good businesswoman but as a great friend – and a heck of a lot of fun,” the founder of Kate Spade New York wrote. 

When you are in business, you have to think beyond making profits. You need to do more to leave a legacy, long before you are gone.

Create a brand that will live for generations, a brand that will benefit people around the world. One must think beyond their sphere of influence. when you die, your band must outlive you.

Pass on the button

“My mother was a businesswoman; my grandmother was a businesswoman - it never occurred to me that life might be harder because you’re a woman. It wasn’t until later and I had a bigger sense of the world that I realized that.” – Katherine Ryan.

When you have people who inspire you, life will become easier. Having people who have done it before you, makes it much easier. When life gets tough, you have somewhere to refer to and start from there.

Inspire someone

Sharing your life experiences will change someone’s life. The struggle that people go through will make other people stronger. The fact that you are an inspiration should make you go on.

“To know how far I’ve come as a person and an entertainer and a businesswoman, I just hope I represent independence and intelligence and athleticism - everything that a woman should want to be,” mentioned Charlotte Flair.

Learn to be versatile

“I think I’m most proud of the fact that I have figured out how to exist as both a creative person and artist and a businesswoman and manager. Because those two things do not go together.” – Shonda Rhimes

Rhimes, a media personality who had to learn to be versatile has made her one of the celebrated media personalities. Life will give you different roles that need you to manage carefully and make them work.

Women, like Rhimes, have to put more effort because they are competing with male counterparts, who might be more experienced and exposed.

Work like an employee

Tyra Banks revealed that: “I am a businesswoman who goes to work every single day.” As an entrepreneur, you must work around with your employees to motivate them to do more. 

When you are in the office, you are involved in the day-to-day operation of the business, and you are kept in the loop. If you work like all the employees, they will take you seriously, and will help you build your vision.

Learn from others

Entrepreneurs who want to become self-made, sometimes fail because they are ignoring the free advice that is supposed to help them grow. These days, one can contact mentors on various platforms. If one follows such pointers, they will add more value to the business.

“Seek women mentors. If you’re a businesswoman, look at the TEDx conferences,” Jane Fonda said. “There’s a lot of businesswomen that speak on there. I find them extremely inspiring.”

Finding a balance

“My biggest challenge every day is to be a great mother and a great businesswoman.” – Tory Burch. Female entrepreneurs have the disadvantage because they need to take care of the family, unlike their male counterparts.

Stay loyal to your calling

Kim Kardashian always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and she has made her dream come true. If you have a dream, like Kim, stay focused. “I’ve always been a businesswoman.”

“Just for you to know, people, models, are very smart,” Irina Shayk said. “We're investing money in the right way, and, you know, a modeling job I’m taking as a businesswoman. So it’s not fun for me; it’s work.”

Be innovative

“I’m a businesswoman. You know, I have other investments too, real estate. A long time ago, I would buy a house and flip it,” Vanna White stated. “But now everybody does that, so I don’t do that anymore because there are no houses out there to buy.”

Don’t be limited, by situations, always stay true to your calling. Your calling will open new avenues for you. White’s statement shows that she is not limited by her gender, she is prepared to venture into any business and make a difference.

Experiment and discover yourself

“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.” ― Marissa Mayer

Be ready to experiment and get your hands dirty.
