Women Entrepreneurs In Business – Stand Up And Roar !

Well ladies, women shoppers are a whopping  over 90 billion dollars segment of the market today – and it’s time to be recognized by the business segment.

Over the past years, some businesses have complained that state regulations and high utility prices make doing business so expensive that it’s nearly impossible to make a profit.  

 It’s true that some places have some of the highest costs of doing business in the nation.  In fact, I see more hopeful entrepreneurs every week wanting to start a business and a good portion are women.
  In fact, many experts believe that an advantage is proximity to the markets, high-quality intellectual capital, and a strong tradition of start-up activity that will make an outpace in job growth.  (I hope the experts are right!)


Regardless of what the experts believe or say, let’s face it – there are always those people who see only the “down” side of every situation.


They constantly complain about the rain, and completely miss the rainbow that follows with the sun. 

 Being an entrepreneur and starting your own business is not for the faint heart! 


 If you don’t go into it with your eyes wide open, expecting some bumps along the road, then don’t leave that salaried job with its benefits. 

 So many people say, “I can’t leave my job now – I need the benefits.  

  They completely forget the benefits of having a dream, and working hard to make it a reality. 

There’s been much “hype” and “blather” from governmental and financial quarters that if you want to start your own business and you’re a woman, a minority, or both – then you’re a “shoe-in” for loans etc. 

  Don’t you believe it!  A bank, is a bank, is a bank – and everybody seeking a loan must answer the bank’s 3 most burning questions.    

 1. How much of your own money are you investing in yourself? 

2. What are your assets?

 3. How do you plan on repaying the loan? 

 If you can’t satisfy the banker, then it doesn’t much matter whether you’re woman, minority, or vegetable the loan won’t be forthcoming.

Now I said all that to say, don’t let that derail your dream. Just keep on keeping on, and you’ll find out how it can be done.  There are a lot of people out there ready and waiting to rain on your parade – don’t give them the chance. 

 Let them rain all they want, you just keep on marching toward your goal.  

 You write that business plan, your goals for the first year – and the second- and the third.  

 If you can get over these first bumps in the road, then you’re on your way.

Those businesses that leave for other Places, are just leaving that much more of the market for you to tap into when you get started.

It seems that I’ve heard more “You can’t” than “Go ahead – give it a try” lately, and I just can’t understand why so many people are so anxious to shoot you down than help you along. 
  
I’m here to tell you that if you have an entrepreneurial dream there are only two questions you have to ask yourself.   

They are; 1. If I try it and fail, what’s the worst that can happen?  And

2. Is that really any worse than if I don’t try at all? 

 Go ahead Ladies – STAND UP AND ROAR!
