I think women really just take the bull by the horns and do it. For women, it's just knowing that there's always a way.
Don't have any boundaries; don't say, "I can't." Instead, ask yourself; "Where can I?" Change it around.
Hang onto your other women. Women are tremendous support for each other, so surround yourself with other women. Perhaps grab a handful of friends who really support you emotionally and ask them to spread the growth or the start-up of your new business. That would really, really help. And lastly, just believe that you can. And nobody can stop you.
Do you want to be known as an entrepreneur or a woman entrepreneur? Does the gender label matter to you?
I always thought it didn't matter to me. I didn't really have a dad growing up. So, I didn't know anything between male and female and equality, and I've never been at the end of discrimination as a female. Until there came a situation where we had to structure the business and I wouldn't be the CEO. And I thought, "Actually, no, I think it's really important that, as a female, we’re given equal opportunities" So therefore, it does matter.
What legacy do you want to leave?
That's when it comes down to being a female. The legacy is "this lady just did it." Doesn't matter what the personal struggles were, this lady just did it. Drive and ambition and resilience, and I'm not going to let go until I get to where I want to be. That's the legacy I want to leave behind for other female out there.
