Women Entrepreneurs Are On The Rise

 

Everywhere you look more and more women are becoming entrepreneurs. The shift is happening now like no other time in history.  Women entrepreneurs are on the rise for good reason.

More and more women are taking control and being responsible for their future. Women have been part of the workforce for a while but now are taking it a step further and becoming their own boss.

Like other women I stepped out of the work force and into entrepreneurship.  I was dissatisfied with my professional life. Working like a dog and selling my time to get ahead was not for me.

Let me explain.

Thirty years ago when I was young and planning my life and goals, there was no Internet, or possibility of working from home and being an entrepreneur. I was part of a family full of entrepreneur’s, all brick and mortar type businesses.

In fact I helped my husband build his business for the last 25 years. But that was an old work model that worked great back then, but didn’t fit into a dream lifestyle any more than the corporate world that I joined.

I had been feeling pulled between family time and work commitments for a long time and the corporate world of long hours did not fit in with my values of family.

Sadly when my daughter passed away in a drowning accident the one thing I wished for over and over again was just a little more time with her. I was aching for any time I could get, an hour, a few minutes, a few seconds – anything.

I told myself time will heal and to be grateful for having a “good job.” But as time went by I became more and more frustrated by my lack of control over my life. I decided it was time to stop listening to other people, and to start listening to my heart. I became my own boss. I became a female entrepreneur.

Now as my parents are ageing and my kids were getting older, I’m ecstatic to be in control of my schedule and time. Becoming an entrepreneur with my home-based business was the solution for all my frustration. I just needed to listen to my own heart and take the leap of faith.

It makes complete sense for more and more women because the old work models never did fit our lives or us. Female entrepreneurs can custom fit their work and business to fit their passions, desires, values, interests and families.

It’s an exciting time for women as more and more women build their dream lifestyle through entrepreneurship. Everyday through our coaching program we see the enjoyment women have as they learn how they can build their business around what is truly important to them.

We have learned that female entrepreneurs have got to be willing to try new things, learn new skills and accept the challenges that will surely face then. Are you ready to listen to your heart and join us?

 

To Your Life Without Limits,

    I love the idea of being in control of my life. Also, I think women are more naturally able to ‘think outside the box’-which leads many of us to our own home based businesses 🙂
    Great article!

      I agree Rebecca more woman do “think out of the box,” I think primarily because the traditional work force model does not work for women. Thanks for your comments. We love getting feedback.

      I agree Bec. We are responsible for ourselves and our future and being responsible does give us the opportunity to achieve much more in our lives. Thanks for the great comment.

    Jeanmarie – This was a very important post.I’ve been privvy to watching this journey we women are on for some time now and the growing entrepreneurial trend is heartening for several reasons. One, of course, it affords women to be even more independent and at the same time creative which is one of their most dearly lost abilities in much of the corporate workplace. Another reason is that entrepreneurship has a more “acceptable” ring to it now than it did in the past. Women are stepping up in these areas because they are so good at multitasking and allowing for flow in their lives and in their businesses. I believe we, as women are creating an important energy in the world of work and elsewhere. Good for us!!!

    This is such a moving post. We can’t ever go back and get the time we missed with our loved ones. We CAN take notice of what we’ve lost, and spend more time with the ones that are still here. Beautiful!

      Thanks Michelle, your time is your most valuable asset and many people don’t appreciate it until they are starting to run short on it.

    I too started my first business using the traditional brick and mortar model, but since discovering the online world, I am excited to say that there are more possibilities available here, where we can reach beyond our immediate scope of influence and touch more people’s lives than just within our own community. It is a very good feeling knowing there are so many possibilities that await us.

    Thank you for sharing your touching post. Your values align with mine and so many other women’s who want to do it all, including being intimately involved in our children’s live.

    Much success to you!
    Juli
