Many women entrepreneurs are increasing year after year. So how can we support women entrepreneurs who want to grow their businesses? I’m outlining four ways that can be of help.
Understand it is OK to Fail
Failure is the key to success. If you have someone you know, maybe a close friend or relative, experiencing some challenges and not-such-a-great times in their business, let them know that it’s OK and normal to experience a bit of failure. There are chances that ideas will fail, and then it is up to you to rebuild them and make them more robust than ever. We have a vibrant community of women entrepreneurs who support each other; being a part of such communities helps us not feel stuck. You can join our Facebook group TransformHER Learning HUB to keep yourself in the zone of achievement.
Perform an Audit
When becoming an entrepreneur, there are likely hundreds of other women who are doing the same thing. You can do one thing in your women’s entrepreneurial networks and groups to help others find and identify their niche. In many groups for women entrepreneurs, a common question is how to differentiate one’s business in a crowded industry, and often it takes a third party view or an outsider’s view and quick audit to help recognize and carve out what makes a particular business unique. If you need guidance around this, you can schedule a free 15 mins consultation on the link below.
Make Help Readily Available
It would be best if you were not afraid to ask for help. Instead of creating an atmosphere of competition, create an atmosphere of idea-sharing and support.
Apart from what I outlined above, does your fellow women entrepreneur know about available resources? Do they have a business plan for their business? While you certainly don’t need to micromanage, discussing these details will make a world of difference to someone just starting, and yet if they need support, TransformHER is a platform where they will find all the learnings required for building a thriving business and a fulfilled life.
If you don’t believe in yourself and your business, no one else will, especially your clients. Help them believe in what you are selling and make sure customers know that others believe it in too. This may mean staying engaged with the members of your community on social platforms and often offering support with likes, shares, and comments. Often, starting in entrepreneurship can be the most empowering time in one’s life. But becoming a women entrepreneur is not easy, and it’s not for everyone. Going into it with an open mind and knowing your value is extremely important in the survival of your business. Pass this mindset onto a women entrepreneur that you know, and watch them grow!
