Following a few surveys and stalker-like manoeuvres we sourced a few tips from around the world from the greatest woman entrepreneurs.
When it comes to working in a man’s world, these powerhouses don’t believe there is such a thing as a man’s world. It is just our world, and we all have a place in it.
From Coco Chanel to J.K. Rowling, from Arianna Huffington to Oprah, we have a lovely little treasure chest of golden rules to follow. Whether you intend to or are already deep into being a woman entrepreneur, sometimes it is best to take a leaf out of a fellow woman’s book.
1. Work for it!
Perhaps one of the most iconic businesswomen, Estee Lauder, said that she never dreamt about success, she worked for it. Wise words from this great lady.
2. Make Mistakes
Sara Blakely, the youngest self-made millionaire in America, and the Founder of Spanx, believes you have to make mistakes, and that sometimes those moments are the most memorable.
J.K. Rowling had a similar message, but delivered it so poetically, we just had to share, “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all–in which case, you fail by default.”
3. Be Thankful
Oprah Winfrey has much to be thankful for, but we know she worked dang hard to be able to have what she has, so we will take her profound words to heart, “Be thankful for what you have; you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
4. Don’t be Fearful
It is very easy to fall prey to our fears, but Arianna Huffington, Founder of the Huffington Post, says she exercises her fearlessness muscle daily, so that her fears do not run her life.
5. Create a Legend
Another great beauty mistress, Coco Chanel, taught us much to do about how to be graceful and make the most of our faces, but she had some nuggets of truth about life too. In her words, “May my legend prosper and thrive. I wish it a long and happy life.”
While there are many, oh so many more great women with great pieces of advice, we feel that these 5 powerful statements can set your world on fire.
