Business Advice for Women Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

I looked out over my back yard at the crack of dawn to find a perfect raspberry colored cloud against a cool grey morning sky just turning from black. As I looked at the date on my kitchen counter flip calendar, I said to myself, “In 3 days, I will officially be a woman entrepreneur for 20 years.”

I have learned, loved, rejoiced and grown every day the past 20 years as the owner of two companies. I have risen every morning excited to face the challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship. In the early years, those days included juggling two sons who were 3 years and 3 months old while doing business the “old fashion way” as the Internet was just beginning to be used and communicating with clients was not through social media marketing.

A lot has changed including the way I conduct business through technology and the rise and popularity of women entrepreneurship across the nation. Many things have also remained the same like my dedication to high customer service and my mission to bring women entrepreneurs together so they can make money and promote themselves through events.

Through the window of my eye I have met thousands of intelligent, brave women entrepreneurs and learned more business wisdom than I could have ever imagined. My heart has been in alignment with women as they struggled through failure, embraced success, and moved through the twists and turns of every day business life. My life has been very fulfilled and blessed the past 20 years.

Today’s special blog post is to inspire you to look back over your entrepreneurial career and relish your own journey. Accept the good and bad moments for what they are. Celebrate the people who have been with you on your path. View your life and ask yourself, “Could I have done any better with another career?” I hope your answer is like mine, “No, this has been perfect.”

I hope the glimpse into my business window this morning leaves you with a warm rosy feeling of what it has been like to be a woman entrepreneur for 20 years. I am appreciative for the role you have played in this journey. We have a bright future ahead of us – let’s keep doing it together.
