My Mother Inspired Other Moms To Succeed
My Mom’s Entrepreneurial Spirit runs in the family. In Junior High, my mom ran numbers for my Uncle Frank’s Barber Shop. Growing up in a tough neighborhood, she made money babysitting and making small crafts she would sell. After she dropped off the numbers at my Uncle Franks she would buy 2 Bottles of Pepsi. One for her and the other for my Grandfather who moonlighted as a Stationary Engineer at some of the Burlesques’ Shows in Downtown Pittsburgh. She married at 18 and has 5 Kids before she was 24. I grew up before the Internet and there were not too many opportunities for a her. She ran the rental end of a real estate company. Her entrepreneurial spirit is evident in her son’s successes today.
Connect With Other Female Entrepreneurs
If you are a female entrepreneur who is looking to connect with other like-minded women, you’ve come to the right place. There are plenty of resources on the web to help you succeed. The Women Presidents’ Organization is a great resource for networking, providing online and in-person resources to help you grow and succeed in business. I highly recommend the website, which features articles, interviews, and videos from successful female business owners.
Women in business have never been stronger. Women have a greater opportunity to build a company than ever before, and the feminism movement has ushered in a new generation of career-oriented women from across the globe. The 2012 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Women’s Report by Babson College and London Business School found that female business owners were more likely than their male counterparts to connect with other female entrepreneurs.
Have Confidence in Yourself and Your Business
You may not be able to see yourself as confident, but others might. Look at your role models and emulate their confidence. Study successful entrepreneurs and successful people. Become a student of their mindset. Study the successes and failures of the people you admire and emulate. Self-confidence can be a powerful asset in your personal and professional relationships. Here are some tips to help you gain confidence. If you have a lot of doubts, start by practicing positive visualization.
Developing confidence requires conscious efforts. Confidence helps you focus and deliver exceptional results. It also makes it easy to crack deals and win the hearts of clients. Self-confidence is essential to your success as a business owner. There are many ways to build confidence. Begin with a positive mindset, read books, and believe in yourself. Try to develop your self-confidence and be sure that you can make big changes.
Be the Face of Your Company
I love being the face of a company because my mom inspired me to do the same. She was the only woman who wanted to own a business when she Graduated from Sacred Heart Catholic School for Women in Pittsburgh. While she knew she was going into a field that was predominantly male, she never let that stop her. As a result, she juggled a demanding work schedule and a full-time motherhood. I think my Mom and otherers, changed the culture of companies and paved the way for other women to succeed.
Join an Entrepreneur Network
Join an Entrepreneur Network because my mother inspired me to do it. She made a success of her own by starting a business while raising her children. Her business was called Thesis Theological Success, she quit her job as a real estate rental director to pursue her passion for creativity and started a business. Thesis Theological Cassettes offered help for Ministers working on sermons by recording nationally know pastors and sell their Recorded Sermons as a monthly subscription. Thesis Theological Cassettes was a precursor to digital publication in a male dominated community. My mother successfully built a subscription base of over 12,000 Monthly Subscribers, each paying $12.95 a month for her 4 Monthly Cassettes.

Start Before You’re Ready
Many women want to start their own business or become a freelance writer, but wait until they have kids in high school or college. This is because it is easier to balance your health with the demands of raising children and running a business. Some women who have done this find it easier. This is because most people don’t think about work until after 5 p.m. However, starting a business is no walk in the park, and it requires a lot of dedication and hard work.
Understand How Money Works
My mother’s financial education was largely informal, but her lessons molded the framework for her own children’s financial education. Kate is the only American in her family of Persian and British parents. Her siblings grew up in Iran. She credits her father’s financial conservatism with much of her success. Kate aims to provide a similar foundation for her kids’ financial literacy. In the end, it’s not only her children who will benefit, but everyone in the family.
