Our Top Tips for Success for Women Entrepreneurs

Whilst no two women entrepreneurs will have the same exact background, experiences, and aspirations, they certainly all have the same drive for success and reaching their aspirations!

Running a business is no small feat, and there’s a lot of trial and error involved as we grow and develop along the way.

As Arianna Huffington, co-founder of Huffington Post says: 

‘Don’t just climb the ladder of success – a ladder that leads, after all, to higher and higher levels of stress and burnout – but chart a new path to success, remaking it in a way that includes not just the conventional metrics of money and power, but a third metric that includes wellbeing, wisdom, wonder, and giving, so that the goal is not just to succeed but to thrive.

Here are our top tips for success for women entrepreneurs to not just succeed, but to thrive!

1. Go beyond your comfort zone

It’s natural to have a fear of the unknown or of failure, but you wanted to start your business for a reason.

Now isn’t the time to let your fear hold you back, it’s time to let your fear propel you forwards!

Remember that calculated risk comes with reward, and in the beginning, you may find that you’re putting in a lot of effort for results that don’t yet seem tangible.

But when you learn to find enjoyment in the process and let your passion fuel you, you’ll have more satisfaction in the long term (rather than focusing entirely on results).

2. Find your tribe

It’s easier to persevere, learn, and grow when you’re around people who are also on a similar journey to yours.

Our ProspHER community members have spoken about how the supportiveness of the community has truly helped them to feel as though they aren’t alone in what they’re going through, and that they’ll have support when needed.

And it’s true – being able to find a community of like-minded people to grow your network and learn from, be inspired by, and collaborate with, is one of the best ways to catalyse your success as a woman entrepreneur.

Being around people that are facing the same challenges and those that have the experience to help you navigate them and provide expertise is a fast-track way to feel more confident and assured in running your business.

3. Upgrade your skills along the way

Seeking out support and learning don’t have to be two separate tasks for a woman entrepreneur looking to be successful.

Building your skills and knowledge are a critical factor in running a business, yet a lot of us can get bogged down with feeling like we need to ‘know it all’ before we even get started.

Instead, focus on building a solid support network and learning and upskilling as you go – memberships focusing on training modules and programmes, coaching, in-person networking and in-depth support can cover all of your bases without making you feel as though you’re compromising on your growth to focus on your learning.

Remember that if you feel like you’re the smartest person in the room, it might be time to find a different room.

Keep on challenging yourself and adapting, and there are no limits as to what you can achieve!
