On 8 March, we observe International Women’s Day. According to this website, the day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.
This year’s theme is Inspiring Change and it encourages advocacy for women’s advancement everywhere in every way.
Speaking of economic achievements, women entrepreneurs have indeed been shattering the glass ceiling. According to forbes.com contributor Geri Stengel, 2014 will be a breakout year for women entrepreneurs. Here are 11 reasons why:
- Women have the right stuff. They make better leaders than men.
- The proof is in the pudding. They deliver better company performance.
- Diversity improves performance and increases innovation. Women have become power-users of technologies, such as the internet, mobile and social media.
- Untapped spending power. 80% of consumer spending is controlled by women.
- Women use the power of their portfolios. Women and wealth trends bode well for women investing in women-led business.
- Men are bullish on women. Promising women-led companies provide great opportunities for male angel investors.
- Women are building a vibrant and layered ecosystem. There are tons of networking groups that support women business owners.
- Women are shedding their cloak of invisibility. They are increasing their media presence and building their businesses through thought leadership.
- Women are starting to blow out their networks. The bigger and more diverse their network, the more likely their business is to break revenue barriers.
- Women never stop learning. Admitting that they don’t know everything – and never will – is key to growth.
- Some women use failure as a launching pad to success. They learn more from their failures than their successes.
