11 Tips for Female Entrepreneurs

Check out this quick read on tips for female entrepreneurs beating the odds. According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, today there are more than 11.6 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. Since 2007, the number of women-owned firms has grown at five times the national average, with 1,072 new women-owned firms starting every day.

Here's what female entrepreneurs can do to avoid being one of the 20% of small businesses that fail in the first year or 50% that do not survive beyond five.

  • Do what you love and love what you do
  • Be generous with you time for clients, and strive for the highest quality in everything you do
  • Network
  • Fake it 'til you become it
  • Listen to feedback
  • Create an inspiring work environment
  • Hire a motivated staff
  • Never lose curiosity for learning new things
  • Set goals
  • Maintain the balance between work and life
  • Have a business financial plan and personal financial plan
