How are we going to recover from these hard economic times? Well, this message is for us women, it’s time to “Rise” and “Shine”. It’s very important for us women to share our stories with each other, success is not overnight, it is a journey.
One of the reasons why today is the day for women to start a business is because of the shift in the traditional business world. The business world was set up by men. Women have thought that they have to fit into the mindset that business and family, friends and their passions have to be separated. That we have to fit into the 9-5 model. This type of model does not work for women, women’s frustrations and stress come from trying to balance both worlds. But now, women are learning that we can level the playing field by working from home and have the flexibility in our lives that we need to feel like we are achieving all our goals, and build our business around what we want instead.
Because of the technology of the day, women have the advantages of working from home. Without the need for an office and employees. Another great reason why now is the best time for women to start their business is that there is little to no cost for marketing. With all the social media out there it is easier than ever to market our business.
Women can design and create their own business model that is not the traditional one. We can create a more feminine business model that is successful. Women can now focus on their business while their children are in school, then shift their focus to their children when they come home, then be able to get back to work once the children are in bed. So essentially we can work part time, but that is not to say that our business is a hobby. Never forget that the number one reason for being in business is to make money. So even though you may be passionate about what you do you still have to work your numbers. Don’t think that the money part will just work itself out. Do your homework. There is a difference between a non-profit strategy and a non-profit mindset. Even if you do have a non-profit business, you still have to have a for profit mindset.
Listen up women, we only control 1% of the wealth in the world. So for us to control more of the wealth women NEED to realize that it starts with you. Take control of your own wealth and your own family and then there will be a ripple effect and as we gain more wealth we can then make more of the decisions in the world that will bring more peace, because we will affect more change with money. With money there is power. Not power over others, but power to fund YOUR cause, that can change the world. Allow yourself to shine on an internal level, and allow whats inside of you to rise and bloom.
Live the sweet life with a sweet career!
