Tell us about the venture/ business/ initiative you have started...
What is your definition of success? What advice would you give to your younger self about "success"?
I’d say to make sure that you’re happy, material things lose value, your purpose is to give back and make a differences.
What challenges have you encountered on your journey and how have you overcome them? Is this a common challenge in your industry? How can we tackle it?
Have you ever experienced imposter syndrome? If so, are there any examples you can give and tips you can share with other women on how to overcome it?
Are there women you look up to? Who are they and why are they inspirational to you?
What are your thoughts on work-life balance? Do you apply any techniques to achieve work-life balance?
How did you know it was the right time to start your own venture/ initiative? How would you advise someone who is just starting out with a project outside of their regular 9-5 job?
I’d say go for it but be prepared for the long hours because your day now becomes 7-8 or in my case 5-7 it just depends on what works best for you. You have to sacrifice your time to build your business.
What have you learned about leadership, entrepreneurship and mentoring others?
What mistakes do you see people make when they first start their own venture/ intiative/ business and what advice would you give to women so that they can avoid making these mistakes?
Are there any resources/ books you would like to recommend for the women who read your #AspiringWomen article?
Is there anything else you would like to share with other women on their journey to success?
Never let money be the main goal, with every successful person that I’ve met since starting our business they’ve emphasised on this. If happiness has any part in your journey to success don’t let money be your main objective.
