Being a woman entrepreneur (especially in the start-up phase) can mean long hours, late nights, and nobody to talk to! Add on your responsibilities as wife, mother, daughter, sister, or any other role…and you can end up one stressed out momma!
It’s funny because most people smile with admiration when they learn that you’re a business owner, yet most people rarely understand what that means. You’re usually pegged as ambitious, motivated and determined…but, people can’t quite comprehend what life is like for The Woman Behind The Business.
Yes, you’re ambitious, because you want more for yourself. You’re motivated, because you believe in yourself….and the determination, well that’s easy…you set out to establish a legacy for yourself and your family…so, failure is just not an option. These are all great character traits that reflect most women entrepreneurs but, they don’t get to the heart of who “she”is. Who “I” am.
That’s part of the reason why I launched the women’s entrepreneurial group The Woman Behind The Business™(WBB). The goal of our group is to support entrepreneurial growth and sustainability in women-owned businesses. We accomplish this by creating a sacred space for women to be honest about the challenges they face as women entrepreneurs & CEO’s.
Personally, I had a very small pool of people (like one person) that I could talk to about what was actually manifesting in my life. Then I realized their had to be other women like me, seeking someone to confide in, while also providing her testimony to encourage and uplift her fellow women in business.
So, I’m inviting you, my fellow women business owners, to join me for our first annual The Woman Behind The Business Retreat in Nassau, Bahamas, September 8 -12th!
